Honor Roll: Garnsey Park, Rexford, New York

Rexford, New York, is a hamlet in the Town of Clifton Park in Saratoga County. The hamlet was the site of an aqueduct, built in 1841, that brought boats traveling on the Erie Canal across the Mohawk River. The arches of the aqueduct can still be seen today.

Along Rt. 146 is a Garnsey Park. It includes a memorial to those who lost their lives during World War II.

World War II Honor Roll, Garnsey Park, Rexford, New
York; personal collection

World War II

Almighty God -- A most
Merciful Father to all
Mankind -- May we humbly
Beseech thee to hear our
Dying petition to inspire
Those who Must Carry on
In the world to see the utter
Folly and tragedy of War
And to do all to abolish it --
Fill their hearts with love
For their fellow men -- and
Grant unto them the courage
And wisdom to guide our
World into a lasting peace.
May our supreme sacrifice
Help them to remember
The terrible cost of war
And we shall not have
Died in vain. -- Amen

In Grateful Memory of Those Who Died in the
Service of Our Country During World War II
