Welcome to Everything Croton, a collection of all things Croton--our history, our homes, our issues, our businesses, our schools--in short, EVERYTHING CROTON.
By overwhelming request,
we've tracked down more "Wartime Letters Back Home". Thanks once again to the outstanding archives maintained by the volunteers of The Croton Historical Society.
Today we have letters from the April and March 1945 editions of the CROTON ON HUDSON NEWS from Albert F. Rozell; Mary A. Griffin; "Georgie" (Francisco); Tommy Nolan; Rocco Pastore; August "Buddy" Schisler; Gene Cavanaugh. Click on the photos below. See more wartime letters here http://bit.ly/1zVfvYl
Just a note to let those who remember my father, Gene Cavanagh, he died on 2/20/2015 @ the age of 93. He wanted to spend his last months in Croton, having lived in AZ for 30 yrs.ReplyDelete
How providential to have found that letter...could you please send the obituary or link so that we can let residents know in a separate posting?Delete
I am Marie Cavanagh Munroe-Sharon's sister. My Dad was always proud of his service with the 101st Airborne and remained active in the 101st Association for most of his adult life-frequently returning to Holland. The obituary should be on the Carter site in a few days. Like his father he was employed by NY Central/Penn Central RR and Metro North as a brakeman/conductor until his retirement.ReplyDelete
