    WW-1 dogs tags found, RETURNED, RETURNED, RETURNED, see link

    I found these WW-1 dog tags years ago in Garner, NC in an old millpond that had drained. I recently found out who the Veteran was through some detective work and help from the Tnet community! I have included pics of the house the Veteran and his son grew up in, return pics, pics of my own Grandfather's WW-1 tags and pictures of him, and the location where I found the tags. This has been a great ending to quite a mystery. I found these tags in 1994 or so and have tried to find out who owned the tags many times over the years with no luck. Finally the story has ended happily. The Veteran's 75 year old son has his Dad's tags in hand for good. The Clayton News-Star did a story (front page!) this week on the find too. Great story complete with a pic of the tag-return and a picture of the Veteran, Norwood D. Barbour. Here is the link: http://www.claytonnews-star.com/ the week is 12-16 Jan 09. Bryan

    Re: WW-1 dogs tags found, need to find their home!

    I'm not sure there are any WWI vets left alive in the USA. They'd have to be over a hundred years old! Seems like I read where the last one known had died within the last 4 or 5 years, but I can't be positive. Monty

    I think it was intentionally marked out. It is where the unit would have been inscribed. Perhaps if they were captured, they did not want the unit revealed. I have my grandpa's WW-1 tags and they are just like these.

    It is extra tough to get info nowadays with the Privacy Laws and other red tape. I must be a relative to request records and nobody can seem to do much with just N. D. Barbour and the service number. I just have to find the right person who can help me. Thanks, Bryan

    Are your Grandpa's dog tags also marked out?

    I looked up some WWI dog tags and where your post shows the info marked out, they had the address of the soldier. Is there any way that the markings can be "worked on" to reveal the information?

    I had some luck searching genealogy websites, but I was unable to find direct descendants .

    I will see what I can turn up searching for N. D. Barbour.

    Thanks Donny. I have tried all I know to do. Vital Records in Raleigh could not help. I tried Latter Day Saints geneological site, but don't know where to find their military records and could not find. I have called the VFW, they did not know anything to help me with. Nobody I have spoke with seems to be too interested. I even called a bunch of Barbour's in the area close to where I found the tags. No help. I appreciate any help you can provide. Side note is that I originally thought the initials were just D Barbour. Then looking at the second tag, I noticed an N, which makes it N. D. Barbour. Thanks, the mill is Ausin Pond, just east of hwy 40 on Hwy 42, on the north side of the highway, south of Raleigh, NC, in Garner.
