World War I, Comanche County, Kansas

Note by transcriber and contributor Shirley Brier: "this list has some unusual names, my husband and I proof read it twice, and the spellings are accurate to the printed document. We made no corrections, but have noted where the spelling is questionable.

This list of the same names was published twice: the one published on September 12, 1917, gives order number (1, 2, 3, etc.), the name, then the serial number, for example: "1. John Doe, 200".

The list published on September 20, 1917, gives the serial number, name and place, as follows: "200, John Doe, Jonestown". The list published on Sept. 12 says the order number indicates liability order for service; the list from Sept. 20 says order number will be determined later. Possibly the September 12th list contained errors, prompting a corrected reprint on September 20th." -- Shirley Brier.

Transcribing and proofreading these especially voluminous World War I lists of men who often have unusual names is not an easy task. The lists were published in a newspaper at a time when type was set by hand. This historically means that there were many more typographical errors than readers today are accustomed to seeing in published text. This web presentation is accurate to the original printed list, which may have contained errors. Thanks, Shirley and Mike!     -- Jerry Ferrin

"In early 1917, the United States declared war on Germany. In the first months of the American participation in World War I, enthusiasm was strong but volunteer enlistment into the army was modest. Consequently, a draft was instituted to bring in the needed number of men. On three designated registration days in 1917 and 1918, approximately 24-million civilian men born between 1872 and 1900 provided information for draft registration cards. More than 80% of these civilians received exemptions or deferrals, and they were thus never called for military service."
