World War I,, Ray, Aizona, Memorial

ROLL OF HONOR; 1914-1918; THE WORLD WAR

(TOP) Dedicated by the Ray Consolidated Copper Company to the Citizens of Ray Arizona Who offered their lives in defense of humanity
(BOTTOM)
We have fought for the things which we have always (held?) nearest our hearts for democracy for the right of those who submit to authority to have a voice in their own government.

*** killed in action.

Many names are misspelled. I visited the Pinal County Museum in Florence where I took photographs of several items including the memorial. I should have taken more closeups. Despite digital manipulating of the jpg snapshots I could not make out many of the names. Below I ask for help.

*** One star is placed after five names. I assume these are killed in action. UNL paper says,"(Ray) Townspeople came together to celebrate national holidays, as well as John Henry Pruitt Day. Held annually on November 10, the distinctive local commemoration honored the former Ray resident and WWI Marine Corps hero who died in action on his twenty-first birthday in 1918." Web searchs of other names with stars were fruitless.

I would like to correct all the misspelled names in this list. Taking your own series of closeups and sending them to me would work. I picture 8 or more overlapping closeups would create readable versions. Or, edit or print out an excel table (link) with corrections for me to incorporate. I would appreciate the help.
