World War I Soldiers: Henry Edwin Kunath


Henry Edwin (Eddie) Kunath

Thank you to Pat Larsen for providing this link to the World War I records of Henry Edwin (Eddie) Kunath, the son of Ida Lehman (Johann Carl August Lehman and Maria Jannasch) and Wilhelm Kunath (married 22 Oct 1893 in Fedor to Ida). Wilhelm Kunath was one of the later arrivals to Lee County from Leipa, Nieder Lausitz, Schlesien, Germany.

Eddie and Henry Urban had to go to Giddings to enlist in WW1-not sure whether that had anything to do with being Wendish or because their parents came from Lee County.

Pat tells how she delivered the information about her World War I soldier to the Library of Congress and its subsequent publishing on their website: I put everything in a box and mailed it to the Library of Congress Veterans History Project. As I was in the D.C. area, I had called the L.O.C. first to see if they were interested. Later I called to be sure the box was received as it took a while before they had it digitized and online.

What a nice online remembrance of this American patriot! I enjoyed seeing the letters and the diary in particular.

Thank you, Pat Larsen, for sharing these materials. And thanks for all that you have done, and continue to do, in documenting our history.
