Kiowa County Veterans

War Between The States


Kiowa County, OK also became home to some veterans from that "Late Great Unpleasantness" that occurred during 1861-1865. Many Veterans headed west after the War - from the war scavenged South, to escape the Reconstruction period, from the North, tired of war and looking for another home. Some came into Indian Territory. When the Kiowa-Comanche-Apache Lands were opened to White settlement, they went to find land for a new home in a new territory. Some were less than 40 years old, others, of course, older.

During research to locate the 20th Century veterans, the following were found in Cemeteries in Kiowa County. We also salute these Veterans. If you know of others buried in Kiowa County, please send an email to Ethel Taylor and they will be added.
