Photo c. 1919 of graves of American war dead buried at the American Red Cross headquarters at Savenay France. At least a few of them died of influenza/pneumonia.

Research shows that several of these were later reburied at the Oise-Aisne American Cemetery Seringes-et- Nesles.  Others, at the choice of their families, may have been repatriated to be buried at home.

Oise-Aisne American Cemetery lies about a mile east of Fère-en-Tardenois, which is 14 miles northeast of Chateau-Thierry.

Many readable names. From the foreground :
