Varney, Everett L. (11 Sept. 1896 - 19 OCT 1918)

Mr. and Mrs. A.F. Varney, 111 South Cherry St., Marshfield received a telegram Tuesday morning stating that the body of their son, Lieut. Everett L. Varney, who made the supreme sacrifice in France in the world war, was being returned to this country and was due to arrive in Hoboken, N.J., June 2. The parents are arranging to have the body forwarded to Marshfield and to hold a service there in memory of the heroic young man, after which it will be brought to Greenwood, the former home of the Varney family, for reburial in the Greenwood Cemetery.

Everett died Oct. 19, 1918 from wounds received in the Argonne drive. He served with co. A., Marshfield, through the Mexican border campaign. After his return home from the border he attended an officers’ training school and received a commission as second lieutenant. For some time in France he was connected as an officer with Co. E., 127th Infantry, 32nd Division.
