My Great Uncle, James Harold Haubensak, was a Sgt. First Class in the Army
Medical Corps, Evac Hosp No. 4 A.E.F. during WWI. He was killed when the
Germans bombed the Red Cross tent he was working in (according to my mother and a
cousin of hers who lived in the same town, Fremont, NE). He was in
Fromerville, France at the time. He died November 02, 1918, and is buried in the
Haubensak Plot in Ridge Municipal Cemetery, Fremont, Dodge County, Nebraska.
I have copies of the obit and a story that was in the paper on him. I,
also, have grave stone rubbings someone made for me.

BlankI am looking for information on those who served in World War I from
Dodge County. Does anyone on the list have information about that or know
of someone who does?
In particular am looking information on the 34th Division, the 109th Field
Signal Battalion, possibly even photos. I have found a few things on the
internet, but am wondering if anyone might have photos and information in
their personal possession or whether a local library or historical society
might have such information.
I know that a soldier named DEWEY A. LARSON of Fremont served in the 109th
Field Service Battalion of the 34th in WWI. Would especially like to find a
photo of him. He trained in Deming, N.M. and served in France. Prior to
that he was in the Nebraska Natl. Guard when it was deployed along the
Mexican border to chase after Pancho Villa. He was one of several children
of Emil and Jennie Larson of Fremont. I believe that his brothers Harry and
Edward also served in WWI, but haven't yet found in which units they served.
The 34th Division was created as follows (found this on the internet):
"On 15 July 1917, the National Guard of Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, North
Dakota and South Dakota are called into Federal Service, and on 18 July 1917
are designated as the 34th Division. Concentration began at Camp Cody, NM,
on 3 August 1917. Movement overseas commenced on 20 August 1918 and was
completed by 24 October 1918. On 17 October 1918, the War Department
directed that the division be skeletonized, and many units were stripped of
soldiers as they arrived in France."
Also from the internet, I found the following units of the 34th Division in
WWI. This is how they were listed: 59th FA Bde.; 67th and 68th Inf.
Bdes.; 109th Engineers; 109th Field Signal Battalion; 109th Trench Mortar;
109th Trains; 125th,126th,127th Machine Gun Battalions; 125th,126th,127th
Field Artillery Regiments; 133th,134th,135th,136th Ambulance and Field
Hospitals; 133th,134th,135th,136th Inf. Regiments.
Thanks for any assistance. As I said, have already found a few things on
the internet, but am hoping to find additional information from other
I am hoping someone can please help me find an obit from the
Fremont Tribune. I am looking for the obit of an older cousin.
His name: Duane J. 'Duke' Bolden, he died May 27 2004 in
a nursing home in Scribner. He was raised in Fremont and
his obit should be in the paper sometime after the above date.
Thank you for your help,
