Snohomish County, WA - Other Civil War Veterans

in Snohomish County

In working with other Snohomish County resources, I've found the names of Civil War veterans who (apparently) were not members of the G. A. R. post in Snohomish or in Everett. In fact, "my" Edward H. DOCKENDORFF's name has not been linked to either post.

On this page are listed Civil War veterans who lived in Snohomish County who have not been identified as belonging to either the Buford Post or the Norton Post.

If you can add YOUR SnoCo ancestor's Civil War information to this list, DO contact Marge at the email link at the bottom of this page!
