JIM: Pvt. John S. McQueary 1900-1918
Greg Burton's announcement in CM REUNIONS Re about the gathering of Clan MacQuarrie/McQueary came to mind when I saw the following announcement about Private John S. McQueary - JIM
(From the Adair County News, May 24, 1921)
Arrived from FranceThe August 7, 1918 News had carried this brief notice: "A message reached here Monday afternoon from the Adjutant General, and directed to James McQueary, stated that his son, John S. McQueary, had been killed in action." The Registration of Veterans' Graves for Adair Co. gives two entries for John S. McQueary, each giving the date of death as 7-18-1918 and the place of burial as Cross Road Cemetery at Christine. No entry was found for his marker in any of the volumes of Cemeteries of Adair County.
Pvt. McQueary's death certificate, issued in New Jersey at the port of debarkation of his remains, gave his birth date as January 27, 1900; his grade as Private; and stated he was a member of Company L, 28th Infantry.
There is mention of a "Cross Road Cemetery" in the article. If anyone has information about its location or its present day name, if different, we'd love to hear of it at CM for another list we're interested expanding, cemeteries with street and number for venues. Use the reply button, the Contact Form, with this article to submit information. -CM
