William Cissell killed in the battle of Soissons

I am this mans great-neice. William Cissell was brought home and reburied next to his parents at St. Peter's cemetery in Montgomery, Indiana after the war. I asked my father to verify this when I was taking a history class in the early 1990's when the teacher said that World War One soldiers were not brought home. My father referred this to his brother who was a child when William died and my father's brother stated that William was brought home and was identified by his hair which was red. I have been to William's grave many times myself when I was a child. I do not know how accurate the information is but it is what was relayed to me by my father. Also, William's father's name is William F. for William Francis not the M. you have listed. Constance S. Barton
