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" variation.
