Private Wesley Heffner – in Uniform

I found what is perhaps the only extant picture of my second great uncle Private S. Wesley Heffner. He died of wounds in WWI. A distant relative and genealogist (and all around god-send!) suggested a book by Hill, et al titled “York County in the World War” and it had photos of nearly ever soldier from the county killed. Wesley was one of them. I’ll be visiting his grave this week.
