Spanish-American War

This is an attempt to identify all of the Olmste(a)ds, direct descendants of Olmste(a)ds, or their spouses that served in the military during the Spanish-American War (1898-1902). If you know of a family member that should be listed here, please email us the relevant information.

The Olmsteads & Olmsteds are listed is in first name first order as the family name was often switched back and forth in records and it is sometimes impossible to prove how a family members used it. Those family members listed in the 1912 “Olmsted Family in America” will have their assigned number shown; other descendants not in the 1912 volume will have an * in the column; if there is an “s” after the number or the * it indicates the person is the husband of the Olmste(a)d.

To access their genealogical record on WikiTree, add the ID to URL, i.e., wikitree ID here). The WikiTree ID is the persons last name at birth followed by a hyphen and a number. If a Wiki profile has not yet been created, just WT will appear in the field in the chart below. You are welcome to edit existing Wiki profiles or add new ones. Wiki profiles often contain photos and biographical information.

Find-a-Grave Memorials often include photos of cemetery monuments, personal photos, obituaries, and other information about an individual (including links to family members also on FAG) in addition to the cemetery name and location. To access a memorial on, write down the number and then on the right side of the Find-a-Grave home page click on “Search 162 Million Graves” and then insert the number in the field marked “Memorial #” leaving the other fields blank, and hit “search.” Start by clicking this link to Find-a-Grave.
