Libertyville’s World War I veterans

At the beginning of 2018, we started profiling World War I veterans with a Libertyville connection – those who were born in Libertyville, were residents at the time of enlistment, or those that settled in town after the war. We profiled eight of the around 200 veterans that have been identified through newspaper articles,, high school yearbooks, the Lakeside Cemetery Veterans Memorial Monument, and the American Legion.

The 100th anniversary of Armistice Day, commemorated this year on November 11 to mark the armistice signed between the Allies and Germany for the end of hostilities on the Western Front of World War I, is the perfect opportunity to honor all of the Libertyville WWI veterans identified so far.

In the future we would like to profile more of these soldiers. Please contact Jenny Barry,, at the Cook Memorial Library if you are interested in helping with this project, have any information about the people on the list or have names to add to the list.
