WWI Veterans Buried in Travis County (Current count is 2,100 located at Oct. 7th)

Austin Memorial Park
Oakwood Annex Cemetery
Evergreen & Plummers Cemeteries
Texas State Cemetery
Oakwood Cemetery
Travis County Private Cemeteries

These lists include the men who served in the WWI armed forces and nurses. Most veterans do not have veteran gravestones so locating the WWI gravesites requires extensive research. Please email TravisWW1@sachome.org if you have edits, additions, or to be notified when more names are added as we are still in research mode.

We will place USA flags at WWI Veterans gravesites for Veterans Day 11/11/18 as part of the National WWI Centennial Project. Email us to if you’d like to help 11/3-11/18, and we’ll include you on our email list on the specific plans.
