Robert Granger's Grave Marker

 

This grave marker, which is at Hackensack Cemetery, located at 289 Hackensack Avenue Hackensack, New Jersey, reveals that Robert Granger served in the Chemical Warfare Service during World War I

We do not know how old Robert Granger was when he died on March 28, 1940 because it does not have his date of birth.  I would assume by his date of death and the division of the military he served in that Robert Granger served during World War I

Robert Granger’s name is not on the October 5, 1918 Honor Roll List in the Evening Record, but this confirms his connection to Hackensack by being buried within its borders since passing and forevermore.
