b Before becoming a cadet at the Military Academy, Herbert Krumm served as a private in Cuba in the Spanish-American War, in Battery H of the 1st Ohio Volunteer Artillery. This, and much additional information on his military service, his death, his funeral, family, etc., is found on the entry for him at WeRelate.Org. His service in the Artillery is confirmed by The Roster of the 1st Ohio Volunteer Artillery, where he appears, however, as Ben Z. Krumm.
