Brown Co boys who
volunteered to join
the Army!


The records fail utterly to give Brown county the credit of her full quota that volunteered in defense of the country. Many were credited to the counties where they enlisted, and others were put down without giving the place of residence. In justice to the brave boys and to the noble county they represented, a list is here given of those who were actual residents of Brown County at the time of entering the army. Many names are, doubtless, omitted that should be here, but the list has been compiled with great care after exhausting all means of information at our command. This list comprises of nearly two hundred names. At this time the largest vote that had ever been polled in this county was four- hundred and twenty-five, so it would seem that nearly one-half of all the voters in the county went into the arny. The following are the names:

Click on the letter of surnames you wish to see. If the letter is'nt linked there are no surnames listed. The names on this list came from the book "History of Brown County Kansas" compiled by Maj. E.N. Morrill, 1876. The printing is real small and faded in spots, I have tried to copy the names as they were origionally printed. Should you find any misspellings please let me know.

Brown County Martyrs

Brown county has its list of martyrs who sacrificed their lives to save their country. All sleep the "sleep that knows no waking" in southern graves; but their brave conrads who survive will ever cherish their memories, and the true and  the good will ever hold in grateful remembrance the names of the fallen heros.

Graham, Henry H.                            Keiserman, Samuel
Graham, John L                                Woodcock, W.S.
Smith, John W.                                 Sumpter, Abraham
Snively, Josiah A.                              Wilson, J.A.
Lauch, Daniel                                    Risley, L.M.
Bolinger, L.C.                                   Cummings, T.B.
Donaldson, Samuel                            Hauber, Chas. B.
Muire, D.U.                                       Ansty, Simeon
Vaughn, Edwin Seely                         Bradford, J.L.
Sherman, James                                 Hauber, John
Cook, John Y.                                   Leveir, Newton
Spauer, John N.                                 Withrow, Samuel


The above lists were taken from the book called "History of Brown County Kansas"  compiled by Maj. E.N. Morrill, first published by Herald News, Book and Job Office in 1876.  The Morrill Public Library in Hiawatha Kansas reprinted this book in 1980. After speaking with the librarian it was thought that since this book was originally put out over 100 years ago, that it would be okay to upload these lists without invading any copywrite laws.
