August W. Trautwein Grave Marker


This grave marker, which is at Hackensack Cemetery, located at 289 Hackensack Avenue Hackensack, New Jersey reveals that  August W. Trautwein served in the U.S. Army most likely during World War I, since he would have been 22 years old at the beginning of the U.S. entrance into the war, and he died in 1974 at the age of 78.

August W. Trautwein was not on the World War I Honor Roll List, which was in the Evening Record newspaper on October 5, 1918, but this confirms his connection to Hackensack by being buried within its borders since passing and forevermore.
