References & notes
His service from the Roll,1 as Robert M. Kendrick, and the index to his Compiled Service Records via the Historical Data Systems database. Amputation and death date details from the MSHWR,2 as Sgt. W.R. Kindrick. His memorial is on Findagrave.
The "W" may be for Willis (Willis Robert Kendrick): he's probably the man listed by Colonel Edwards on the casualty list as "R.H. Willis." There are no Willis' in the regiment.
