PILGRIMAGE FOR THE MOTHERS AND WIDOWS OF SOLDIERS, SAILORS, AND MARINES OF THE AMERICAN FORCES NOW INTERRED IN THE CEMETERIES OF EUROPE, AS PROVIDED FOR BY THE ACT OF CONGRESS OF MARCH 2, 1929 (71st Congress, 2nd Session, U.S. House Documents vol. 2, House Document No. 140), which was published by the United States Government Printing Office, Washington, D.C., in 1930. [Central-Government Information Y1.1/2:9225]

PILGRIMAGE includes lists organized by state and then by county of American soldiers, sailors, and marines who were killed during World War I and were then buried in European cemeteries. Listings in this publication provide name and address of the deceased's mother or widow, name of the deceased, deceased's rank and organization, the cemetery in which the deceased was buried, and whether or not the mother or widow wished to make a pilgrimage to the European cemetery in 1930 or some later year.

The following list of Missouri soldiers, sailors, and marines buried in European cemeteries is abstracted from pages 149-159 of PILGRIMAGE FOR THE MOTHERS AND WIDOWS (1930). The list is organized alphabetically by name of the deceased, and is intended to facilitate access to the Missouri section of PILGRIMAGE. It includes the name of the deceased, city or county of residence, deceased's rank and organization, the cemetery in which the deceased was buried, and the page number in PILGRIMAGE on which this listing appears.
