Honor Roll Project: Norwalk, CT – World War I (part 3)

In recognition of those who have served our country in the military, Heather Wilkinson Rojo of the Nutfield Genealogy blog started the Honor Roll Project. It’s an opportunity to publicly document the names on military memorials around the world, thus making them easily searchable on the internet for people who are looking for them!

Honor Roll Project: Norwalk, CT – World War I (part 1)

In recognition of those who have served our country in the military, Heather Wilkinson Rojo of the Nutfield Genealogy blog started the Honor Roll Project. It’s an opportunity to publicly document the names on military memorials around the world, thus making them easily searchable on the internet for people who are looking for them!

This post is the beginning of several I’ll post over time regarding the World War I memorial on the green in Norwalk, CT. There are eight panels with hundreds of names on it. Here is a shot of the whole memorial:

Norwalk, CT has a lot of memorials. They are located near the beach, in parks, even at City Hall. There is one obscure memorial that I came across recently on the front lawn of the Norwalk Public Library on Belden Avenue:

Civil War memorial at Norwalk Library.  Author's collection.

Civil War memorial at Norwalk Library. Author’s collection.

It reads:

IN MEMORY OF
WILLIAM A. BUCKINGHAM
WAR GOVERNOR OF CONN. 1861-1865

AND IN HONOR OF OUR DEPARTED COMRADES
OAK TREE PLANTED IN 1909 BY
BUCKINGHAM POST NO. 12 G.A.R.

TABLET ERECTED BY SURVIVING MEMBERS NOV. 11 1926

GEORGE W. RAYMOND      G.A. FRANKE
NICHOLAS KLINE      GEORGE A. WHITE      SAMUEL W. MCGOWAN
ANDREW GEDDES      CYRUS RUSCOE           WILLIAM B. DOUGLAS

I would like to document more of the memorials here in town, but that is going to take some time, as I believe there are hundreds (maybe thousands) of names to transcribe! So stay tuned during the Veteran’s Day and Memorial Day seasons.
