THE BUILDING OF MENARD COl'NTY'S llo\oif HOOK AM) lfi;<'Olfl>. 

If on the pages within some criticism /* voiced regarding tin' irorl; of th< writers 
and compilers of this book, we crave the leniency of a gra< f ions pnhlie in tliis reward'. 

It has been our mm to build* a complete book, conliiining tin' record.^ and photo 
graphs of all the men of Menard County who entered the sewi<-c, and ire inin- *nav<d 
no time or energy to bring about this desired end. 

Our extensive notification work lias reached evcrii home in the county; it lias been 
distributed in impartial fairness between the various neir* sin r/x ; and- local agents 
dotted all over the county and in each community center bare ma<le it their basincs* 
to co-operate with us in the matter of explaining the //o.vo/,' i;o<)K. 

The splendid telephone system over thin count)/ has been brought to bear on the 
delinquent biographies and photographies in a manner Unit could xearcely leave any 
soldiers or sailors home in ignorance of the HONOR BOOK and its mission. 

All available lists in the county of men who hare entered the service have been'' 
exhausted, adding from time to time names not found on <mu of these /fsf.s as they 
have come to us directly from interested friends. These ire bare rcarlicl hi/ either 
advertising, telephone, telegraph or correspondence, many of Uiem reaching the extreme 
corner of the United States. 

The HONOR BOOK and RECORD will therefore be found more pa fed than <inn 
text noic in existence. 



FOREWORD 

It is our desire and we sincerely hope that this volume shall find appreciation in 
the hearts of its readers. Dedicated is this token of lore and liomaue to Menard 
County's heroes of nineteen hundred and seventeen and nineteen hundred and eighteen 
ichosc noble defense, of home and loved ones inspire the lore and gratitude too sincere 
and profound tn be coined Hi words and phrases. 

From field, industry, shop, and a sheltered home the t/onth of Menard County has 
anxivered America's call to arms. 

Such is Americanism! Menard County! Brave Menard! KJie has plaited her heroic 
part in the grim and ghastly game of war. 



THE MAGIC WORDS "COMPANY C." 

A phrase we speak tenderly. The magic words "Company C!" On the street 
during hostilities "Company C" mentioned has proved the magnet, drawing a eroird about 
the speaker, listeners eager for the bit of information on the welfare of the Company 
on ichose activities the eyes of the whole community were centered. 

Not that the stories of the "Company C" boys have not been repeated orer and 
orcr again with variations in the stories in many of our county's fighting men : not thai 
we are forgetful of the heroes of other battle fronts and other division.*; bul because. 
so many of the boys were in "Company C" and together faced the horrors of modem 
warfare, suffering the loss of comrades on the field of battle, most of them mere lads, 
many leaving high school courses unfinished to lay their lives on the attar for their 
country's need. 

"Company C" has made a name for itself in the military annals of history a 
name that has made General Pershing, in naming over the honored divisions, add: 
"and the 33rd Division, 124th Machine Gun Battalion, Company C." 

Just is the pride in which we hold the men from the county that irent to make 
make up the illustrious "Company C." 

They are coming back! Two years after their debut into the military irorld irr 
no doubt will find the boyishness gone and in its place the rigor and determination 
of manhood a manhood crowned ivith victor}/ and success, bought at the expense of 
the precious lives f comrades and the battle scars of war. 




At home all know the achievement* of Menard County in the great war drire* thai 
have gone to finance the victorious men of the nation. 

While our boys were mobilizing and fighting Menard lias nere-r fallen xltor.t of 
doing her duty. She has satisfied each t/nota mapped out for lier by lite stale a/id 
National Committees, meeting every call for the xnpport of our .sn/J/Y/ *. an ! 
instances has more than met the obligation, .seemingly nnirilling to stop tJie giving 




LINCOLX'X GETTYSBURG Sl'EECH. 

(Address at the dedication of Gettysburg 
Cemetery, \ov. J'J. /x <;.,'.; 

Fourscore and seren vears auo our fathers 
brought forth on tlii* continent a new nation, 
conceived in liberty and dedicated in the prop 
ofiition that all men are created equal. 

\ow we are cnganed in a great civil war, 
testing whether that nation, or a UK other na- 
tion so conceived and so dedicated, can long 
endure. We are met on a (treat battle field 
of that war. We hare come tu dedicate a 
portion of that field as a final resting place 
of those who here gare their lires that that 
nation might live. It is altogetJier fitting and 
{trotter that we should do this. 

l'nt, in a larger name, ire cannot Dedicate 
ire cannot consecrate- ire cannot hallow this 
f/i-oiind. The brave men. lirimj and dead, who 
tttrufioled here have conxccrnted it, fur above 
our poor power to add or detract. The world 
idll little note, nor long remember what 
.vaii here, but it can nerer foraet what they 
did here. It is for 11* the lirin</, rather, to be 
dedicated here to the unfinished work which 
they icho fought here hare thus far *o nobli/ 
advanced. It is rather for UN to be here dedi 
cated to the great taxi; remaining before its 
that from these honored dead we take in- 
creased devotion to that cause for which then 
gave the last full measure of derotion that 
we here highly resolve that these dead shall 
not have died in vain that this nation, undo 
<!<>il. shall have a new birth of freedom and 
that government of the people, by the people, 
for the people shall not perish from the earth.

In /ftemorian 



Valiant soldiers and sailors have gone from their homes in Menard County and 
have entered the Ch'eat War with hopes high, to have them, blasted and the hearts of 
their loved ones crushed by death. 

To the homes in Menard County thus boiced . undei- the weight of sorroic, this is 
the message of hope and comfort . that has been . written for them: 

"Out of the clouds of grief brought about by the touch of the angel of death comes 
the knoirled'ge that without such sacrifices this war was not to be won by the forces of 
right. Written into the glorious histories of the world's great war ic ill be the stories 
of the valiant dead whose deeds of bravery and heroism have made glorious the vic- 
tories of that war for righteousness." 

That is the consoling message to soften the bleeding hearts of the mothers and 
the wives; that is the consciousness of duty well done, a debt to home and country 
paid in full, and to all the allied nations who crowned, them with the laurels of a fight 
icell done, n victory gloriously won. 

This is the splendid tribute paid to the memory of honored dead a tribute not due 
to any other body' of men. 

Flags have been at half mast. Death has demanded these loved ones from within 
our borders. We shall always remember that the homes of these honored onds will con- 
tinue to be desolate throughout the years to come.

John Fullerton Woodell. 





John M. Smoot, Chairman of the Local Exemption Board of Menard County, Illinois, 
born in Menard County on May lJ t , 1860. He is a son of William C. and Catherine 
M moot, pioneer residents of Menard County, both of whom, departed- this life in 1905. 
John M. Smoot graduated from Eureka College in the spring of 1882, was married in 
December of the same year to Minnie F. Brooks of McLean County, Illinois. Three* 
children were born, namely, Mabel I. Laning, Katie E. DuQuoin and Harold L. Smoot 
all surviving and all residents of Petersburg. 

After his graduation he read law in the office of the Hon. N. If. Branson, now 
deceased, and was admitted to the bar in 1885, removing almost immediately to Kansas, 
where he practiced his profession for some eight years, returning to Illinois in 1895. 
He has been engaged in the practice of his profession at Petersburg since his return. 

He was State's Attorney of Menard Count!/ for two successive terms, being elected 
in 189(i, and re-elected in 1900. He was a director of the First National Bank of 
Petersburg for ten years, voluntarily retiring from the directorate at the beginning of 
1919. 

John M. Smoot belongs to the Christian Church and is a teacher of, the men's class 
in its Sunday School. He is a Democrat in politics, believes the English language suf- 
ficiently virile and expressive to enable any good Amercian to express his opinions or 
desires, ami thinks there is room in the United States for but one flag, and that "Old 
Glory." 

Speaking as ivell for the other members <of the Local Board as for himself, he 
desires to express the board's ad^niration for the splendid eager patriotism of our boys 
to enter the military and naval service of our country in the mightiest and most san- 
guinary conflict in all history, a war tchich ice entered to procure a permanent peace 
and to "make right the law of the world." 



Christian C. Juhl, Secretary of the Local Board of Menard County, rendering his 
services gratuitously to his Government during the war with Germany, was born July 
17, 1867, in Lengetwed, North Schlesicig, a part of Denmark, ichich was torn from the 
mother country after the u:ar of 186J t in the characteristic fashion of the Central Powers 
at the very beginning of Germany's conquest for world domination. 

He was the youngest son of H. C. M. and Marie Juhl. Was reared on. the farm; 
attended the public schools in Denmark in ichich was taught both Danish and German. 
Being dissatisfied with the imperialistic form of government, and of democratic con- 
victions, decided to go to America, arriving in Menard County in April, 1883, at the age 
of 15. Devoted his time to farming, removing to Nebraska in the Fall of 1887. He 
was naturalized at Lexington, Nebraska, February .',, 1889. 

He entered as a student of the Omaha Business College in March, 1889, graduating 
from that institution with the Class of 1890, July 16th. After graduation he was 
offered a position as assistant instructor of that college, which he declined, prefering 
to get into active business, accepting a position of bookkeeper in a general store. After 
two years of this service he entered, at Omaha, the employ of the Metropolitan Life 
Insurance Company of New York. After eleven months of this service was promoted 
to assistant superintendent, serving as such for two years, and promoted again to 



superintendent and general manager for Des Moines, Iowa, and subsequently at LaFay- 
ette, 2nd.. Columbus, Ind., and Mans ft eld, Ohio. After eight years' continuous service 
he resigned in June, 1901, on account of ill health, to go back to the farm. 

He was married to Minn Hattie \\atkins of Petersburg, III., May 11, 1899. One 
child was born, a daughter, Mildred, now a student at Word Belmont. 

Mr. Jnhl is a Republican in politico and first, last, and all the time an American. 
In speaking of his experience with the Local Hoard he desires to say that in the con 
duct of its business it has repeatedly merited the commendation- of the District Board 
at Springfield, due largely to the patriotism and willing submission to our young men 
to serve their Gorernment. Credit must also be given to the staunch support of those 
///jo remained at home, evidenced by the fact that every drive for the Red Cross or the 
I'nitcd War Work icas carried over the top in record time, unsurpassed by any count)/ 
in the State an enviable distinction to acquire in the gigantic struggle for world 
democracy. 

Dr. II. 1'. Moulton, medical member of the Local Hoard of Menard County, was 
born on a farm near Maquoketa, Jackson County, Iowa, December 7, 1873, son of Thos. 
./. and Lovina (Goleman) Moulton, former a native of New York, the latter of Ontario 

Dr. Moulton acquired his preliminary education in the public schools of Jackson 
County, Iowa, graduated from the Maquoketa High School, entering the University 
of Iowa as a student in the medical department for two years. Entering the Chicago 
Homeopathic Medical College, from which institution he was gradhiated with the class 
of 1899* and following the completion of his course there, he came to Petersburg, where 
he located for practice. 

On March 18, 1902, he was united in marriage to Miss Mary Catherine Kriegh, 
daughter of E. M, and) Helen (Pyatt) Kriegh of Springfield. There are two children. 
Helen, age IS, and Horace, age 10. 

Dr. Moulton was coroner of Menard County from 1912 to 1916, and is Vice Presi- 
dent of the Central Illinois Homeopathic Medical Society an well as a member of the 
School Board, and a director of the Old Salem Chautauqua Association. 

Together with the other very efficient members of the Local Bard he has carried 
out his duties and desires to say that it icas a fine bunch of boys that came before the 
Board, and it was with pleasure that he learned to know no many Menard County people 
whom otherwise he would perhaps never have known. 

The Local Board ivishes to express their deep appreciation of the assistance given 
by Drs. Epling, Newcomer anil Scott, who proved at all times ready and- willing to 
render their services.
