Quarto (13.5" x 9"). Comprises 160 handwritten pages and 37 typewritten pages, bound tablet style into red cloth covers with a handwritten label which is chipped. The text is mostly on rectos of the leaves, with occasional overlap to versos. The intent is to connect soldiers of World War I with their colonial ancestors. "Summary: 103 soldiers of World War with line of descent established from soldiers of the American Revolution. 147 soldiers of World War with line of descent established from soldiers of War of 1812. 30 sketches of World War soldiers some of whose ancestral lines are traced through Colonial times. 25 sketches of soldiers of 1812. 15 sketches of men and women who did World War Relief work. 7 sketches of soldiers not generally known of the American Revolution. 5 sketches of Confederate ancestors of World War soldiers. Certified Roster of all enlisted men of Williamson County, Tennessee who served in World War, including Battery 7.114 Field Artillery which included some men from other counties. Later, 2 additional soldiers of World War with line of descent established from soldiers of the American Revolution and from soldiers of War of 1812."
[The roster of "Williamson County men who served in Army, Navy and Marine Corps during the War with Germany" was compiled by Dr. K.S. Howlett of the Franklin Red Cross. That long list is alphabetical, with "Colored" soldiers grouped separately under each letter of the alphabet. The many handwritten "sketches" of soldiers are rather detailed, providing much information not otherwise available. This title is unrecorded by OCLC. The author also wrote several family histories.].
