We hope to establish a definitive list of those from Baraga, Houghton, Keweenaw, and Ontonagon counties who served (the “roll call”) and those who died (the “honor roll”) in WWI.
To date we have an honor roll for K, H, and O Counties, but not yet B Co. There is a published full roll call for Ontonagon Co. from 1920  with individual photos and lots of detail, which we are working on integrating into our full roll call. A list of those who died was drawn up for Keweenaw Co., and is appended to an article on the war in K Co. ; these names are already in our list, but we do not have a full roll call for the county. Our initial version of the list includes a full honor roll for Houghton Co. as well as a limited roll call drawn up in late 1919 for only two townships in the county.
If you have more information about those who served on our list, or have names to add to the list, please let us know by filling out this form online. Or if you have questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.orgCopper Country Roll Call 1.3
