Sixteen Belton-connected men answered their country's call in time of war and did not return. These men are listed in the virtual cemetery Belton's Fallen Veterans.
World War I
From 2014 to 2018 was the 100th anniversary of World War I or the "Great War" as it was known to the doughboys who fought it. In honor of their service, the virtual cemeteries Belton's WWI Veterans and all WWI Veterans In Belton Cemeteries have been created.
Do you need confirmation on an edit we have suggested? Please ask! We do not send edits unless we can back them up and will be happy to send whatever we have.
In fairness to the deceased and their family, suggestions cannot be accepted if they cannot be confirmed. If you have suggested an edit and the authoritative source that supports your suggestion is not readily available, please send an email and attach your authoritative source (e.g. death certificate, obituary, etc). Also, suggestions for links to other memorials cannot be accepted if they link to memorials with information that is in large part unverifiable. If you disagree, please send a message to [email protected] and we will cheerfully abide by their decision. Thank you!
All rights are reserved for all photographs. While all photographs may be used for any fully-private, non-commercial purpose without restriction, we respectfully request that none of our photographs be re-posted in public trees on Ancestry.com or any other public venue. Why? The primary purpose of this project is to raise awareness of the sacrifices made by Belton's veterans and their families. When our photographs are used publicly without crediting the source, that purpose is defeated. (We are working hard to post all our photographs on Ancestry.com in public trees. If you are unable to link to one there, let us know and we will be happy to post it.)
