HERBERT CLARENCE WILLIAMS

Herbert Clarence Williams, for whom this American Legion Post is named, was born September 18, 1895. A Hartsburg resident, he enlisted in the Army June 2, 1917 and was in Co. F, 139 Inf., 35 Div. He was killed in action September 29, 1918 in the Meuse-Argonne Offensive in France. His gravestone, in the Goshen Primitive Baptist Church Cemetery in Wilton, Boone County, Missouri is engraved with these words written by one of his Comrades: “It is one’s privilege to say of this modest and unassuming youth, whose mortal remains rest here, that in his courageous sacrifice at the head of his Division in the Argonne, closed the service of a perfect soldier, bringing a never to be forgotten honor to his organization, to his blood and to his community.”
