Cazenovia, Fenner and Nelson History Main Page

This is a start on a page to present records of military service and other records related to wars in which residents of Cazenovia, Fenner and Nelson have fought or otherwise participated.  If you know of any texts or records that might be good to include here, drop me a line.  I have already have many sources and I'll try to provide them soon as I can.

For starters here's some materials to peruse:


Local Veterans buried in National Cemeteries across the US (I would like info on veterans buried overseas also!)

        Veterans buried in Cazenovia, Fenner, and Nelson (still working on this)
