Remembering those who have served in the Military Service during World War ll, Korean Conflict/War, and the Vietnam Conflict/War

The sources used in this surname index are:
1. “They Called It Meadow Grove”,
2. “Do You Remember”, Meadow Grove, NE. Centennial 1886 — 1986,
3. “Tilden’s Centennial Journey 1880 — 1980” Tilden, NE.
4. “Newman Grove, NE. Centennial 1888 — 1988”.
As in the sources, if a veteran was missed, it was not intentional.  Some of the names are listed more than once. In these cases it could be due to more than one person in the county over the years with that name. It may also be due to the fact that a person served in more than one war. The Madison County Genealogical Society has the complete list compiled from the above sources showing which war each served in.

Some of the names may be from outside of Madison County. The area covered by the Newman Grove book covers part of Platte and Boone counties as well as Madison County. The area covered by the Tilden book covers a part of Antelope County as well as Madison County.

The men and women who have served and those currently serving in our military to help protect and defend the United States of America and the citizens of the  U. S. A.  deserve our biggest Thank You.

The listing that follows is listed by Last Name, First Name, and middle name or initial if it is known.
