Military Week-Tuesday

Winchester National Cemetery, Winchester, Winchester City, West Virginia

Jane B. Powers
New York
Army Nurse Corps
World War I
June 2, 1881 - March 24, 1967

Jane was born to Andrew J. and Emma (Webb) Powers and died in Martinsburg, Berkeley County, West Virginia.  According to the National Gravesite Locator for Veterans, Jane was in the Nurse Women's Army Auxillary Corps starting on 22 August 1917.

I was unable to find an obituary as I was hoping to find out more about her and her service to our country especially at time when women could not even vote!

Thank you for your service Jane B. Powers

  1. Jane was my Great Grandmother's cousin. I do not know anything about Jane. I was thrilled to find your photo of her grave. Thanks
