TOWN OF FRANKFORT MEN WHO
SERVED IN THE ARMED FORCES
Town of Frankfort pays tribute and gives recognition to all
the service men who served in all the wars especially those
who served overseas, and gave their life for their country. As
of this date no record of women serving in the armed forces
from Frankfort, also no record of Civil War veterans, unless
some of the older men as the Chapmans, Schooleys, Swans, or
Haffners.
Much of the land in this area was deeded to Civil War
veterans as a bonus for their service to their country. There is
a question if very many of them camp up in this area to claim
their land or settled here to live. Some of this land was
probably purchased by other settlers or by some land
companies.
In World War I George Chapman enlisted in the army from
the Town of Frankfort. After the war the Chapman family
moved to the Town of Johnson. George Chapman was killed in
action in France and the Chapman-Betler American Legion
post of Athens was named after him. Daniel Wirkus also died
during World War I from the Flu or Pneumonia.
