NOTE: A copy of these records has been donated to the following libraries: State Library of Michigan, Lansing; Herrick Library, Holland; Coopersville Library, Coopersville; Grand Rapids Public Library (formerly Ryerson), Grand Rapids and the Tallmadge Township Hall. Henry and Loekie Boersma were generous enough to allow me to put the index on the Ottawa County Genealogy Website.

Veterans of Northeast Ottawa County are from the following wars:
War of 1812 (1812-1814)
Mexican War (1846-1848)
Civil War (1861-1865)
Spanish-American War (1898)
World War I (1914-1918)
World War II (1941-1945)
Korean War (1950-1953)

These records were obtained from the Coopersville Observer, the Allendale, Chester, Crockery, Polkton, Tallmadge and Wright Townships in the Special 1890 U. S. Census and the Ravenna, Nunica, Ottawa Center, Maplewood and Chester Township Cemeteries. Additional information was gotten from the wall in the V.F.W. Post #5598 in Coopersville, the Coopersville City plaque on Randall Street and the Marne Lions Memorial Park.
Additionally, two publications containing lists of Ottawa County veterans were checked - Memorials of the Grand River Valley by Franklin Everett published in 1877, and the centennial publication of Lamont, Our Hundred Years, 1835-1935.
