Honor Roll: Veterans Park, Schenectady, New York

Pete and I have been taking drives on Sundays, exploring our new home state of New York. After Thanksgiving, we explored north and west of Albany County and drove through Schenectady, New York. When Dutch settlers arrived in the area, they learned Mohawk Indians called one of their settlements skahnéhtati, meaning "beyond the pines." Eventually the word entered the Dutch language as Schenectady. Connected to the east and west via the Mohawk Valley and the Erie Canal, the city developed rapidly and was home to General Electric and American Locomotive Company. The Depression, corporate restructuring in the later half of the 20th Century, and the decline in the railroad industry brought economic hardship and loss of population. Lately the city has been reshaping it's economy based on renewable energy and it's population is growing again.

Veterans Park in downtown Schenectady, courtey of Synthesis Architects,
the company that created the redevelopment plan for Seward Place

As Pete and I drove through downtown Schenectady we noticed several memorials in a park across the street from the courthouse. The park is bounded by U.S. Rt. 5, Lafayette, and State Streets and Veeder Avenue.

The names on the monuments have been alphabetized by surname.

This post was written as a contribution to the Honor Roll Project, which was created by Heather Wilkinson Rojo, author of Nutfield Genealogy.


  1. Hi. I have inherited a dozen of what appear to be aluminum foil etched burial tags from WWI, one of which is for Private Raymond L. Boone, 105 MG who was KIA on or around 10/17/1918. On the tag is etched the number 1203 though I am not 100% sure that I have read it accurately. The tags were apparently brought back after the war by my godfather 1st Lt. George P. Kuzmier, Company B, 303rd Engineers, I do not know the relationship of these men to Kuzmier...I can only surmise that they were friends or comrades of his

    It appears from a quick google search Boone was from your area as he is on your honor roll.

    Paul White

  2. My last sentence was cut off, but I would like to return this rather personal item to a descendant or family member of this hero.


    1. Paul, I will see what I can find out about a living relative of Raymond L. Boone. Please give me a few days.

    2. Paul, I left you a voicemail at the number in your first comment yesterday.
