Military Monday : Adrian Charles Koreman, WWI

This week's military Monday is on Adrian Charles Koreman, one of my first cousins three times removed. He was a son of one of my great great grandfather's younger brother.

Adrian Charles Koreman

Adrian was born in Albany on 13 February 1890 to Charles Koreman and Magdelena Behrhof. His father was born in Zierikzee, Netherlands while his mom was born in Albany. Interestingly Charles' birth name was actually Adrianus Johannes Koremans. At some point after immigrating to America, his name changed to Charles; yet he eventually named one of his sons with his birth name.

Before enlisting in the Army during World War I, Adrian was a clerk for Dobler Brewing in Albany. He became a member of the 109th Machine Gun Battalion, American ExpeditionaryExpeditiary Forces (AEF), as a Private.
