Kentucky suffered 1,765 casualties during World War 1. The deaths resulted from several causes. Our soldiers were “Killed in Action” (K.A.), “Died from Wounds” (D.W.), “Died of Accident” (D.A.) and “Died of Disease (D.D). Several soldiers were “Wounded in Action” (W.A.) and survived the war.
The following is a list of those casualties, as recorded by county. There are 120 counties in Kentucky, and every one of them was affected by this war.
At the end of the county list, there is a chart of “Unknown” Counties. After some research, we believe that we have identified some of the unknown counties, and revised the list accordingly. Those corrections are highlighted in yellow.
