I asked at the courthouse and was told this memorial is about the veterans from this county not the people who erected the memorial. The 13 panels list the names of every one who served in the military from before the county was organized. They are listed if they are from this area before the county or after. They are attempting to get all names from 1700 until today. It is always being added to.
