Thanks to the combined efforts of Karen Marshall and Mark Davis, we have a wonderful new addition to the Grant County Page. These two individuals have worked together to create a list of all the soldiers who fought in the Civil War from Grant County, or elsewhere and are buried here. Have a question about any of the soldiers listed here please contact Karen Marshall or Mark Davis.
