I yearly contribute to the Honor Roll Project of Heather Wilkinson Rojo – the purpose is to photograph and transcribe Veteran names for family research. Heather’s Blog can be found at http://nutfieldgenealogy.blogspot.com/…/would-you-like-to-c…
The Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Monument – East Rock: New Haven, CT.
This war memorial stands 112 feet tall and is located on East Rock in New Haven and visible for miles from the surrounding area. It was completed in 1887 and honors the residents of New Haven who gave their lives in the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, the Mexican War, and the Civil War.
Walls on opposite sides list names which were too numerous at this time to transcribe. I would be happy to search the panel if you are looking for a name. I photographed the panels in a large format so you may be able to download a copy to search. Possibly in the future I may undertake the transcriptions of the names.
