About Veterans' Grave Registrations
The State of Wisconsin is required by statute to keep a registry of all veterans’ graves in the state. The Appleton Public Library owns copies of registration information on over 500 Fox River area deceased veterans. Registration information was gathered by V.F.W. Harvey Pierre Post 2778 of Appleton, WI and later donated to the library. Most of the veterans are from the Civil War (344) and from World War I (129). There are 28 grave registrations for the War of 1898 and 1 each from the War of 1812 and the War with Mexico, 1845-1848.

Each grave registration form may contain the veteran's name; last address; war in which the veteran participated; military service organization; date of enlistment; date discharged; rank; date of death; burial cemetery including grave number, lot number and section; date of birth; and next of kin.

Most of the grave registration information included in this database is from Riverside, St. Joseph, and St. Mary cemeteries in Appleton. Also included is information from Zion Jewish cemetery in Appleton, New St. John and Old St. John cemeteries in Little Chute, and one record from St. Paul cemetery in Combined Locks.

Copies can be made from the online image or on request, we will be happy to make copies of the registration information. The minimum charge for photocopying is  $5.00 for three pages or less and $1.00 for each additional page. Copies will be sent by mail or email, and a bill will be included with the copies.
