Pennsylvania Record of Burial for Walter DuWeglou in the
Chester Rural cemetery, Chester (Delaware county), Pennsylvania.
His wife, Pauline M. "Polly" Lukes DuWeglou [1921-1999],
shares this plot although the stone inscription has not been updated.
Their son, Walter Christopher DuWeglou [1958-1980] is buried elsewhere
in this same cemetery.
NOTE: Walter's surname at the time of enlistment
was spelled as "Du Weglow" and also appeared that way on the 1940
Federal Census and some 508th Morning Reports. Post-war civil
records such as the one above, however, are consistent with the "DuWeglou"
