World War II Veterans from Bourbon County

An 80 page listing of veterans is available online in Bourbon County Men and Women Who Served in World War Two. It was published by the War History Committee of the Bourbon County Woman's Club and was sponsored by Hansley Mills, Inc. The title does NOT include the name of every World War II veteran from Bourbon County, but it attempts to gather as many names as possible. More than 100 African American veterans, noted by the term "(colored)," are included, including such names as William T. Clay, Henry Stewart, Rudolph Stout, and Virgil Allen, Jr. There is not a date on the publication, but it covers the period 1939-1945 and is available via the Kentucky Digital Library collection.
