New Lebanon Central School is in very northern Columbia County, but some
of its students come from Stephentown in southern Rensselaer County. I
taught biology and general science there for three years in the early
1960s, so I have always had an interest in the school. It was very
enjoyable teaching those rural teenagers.
I spent about two months working everyday trying to locate obituaries
for that school system, and continue to update them. At present, I have
found 267 obituaries for 313 known deceased graduates from 1925-2010.
Social Security information and Findagrave data and photos have been
added to the webpage for many of those whose obituary could not be
found. I also have found 88 obituaries for 91 known deceased employees
of the school system (teachers, administrators, bus drivers, custodians,
secretaries, cafeteria workers, etc.).
The graduate obituaries are arranged by graduation year, then
alphabetically by graduation surname within each year. The idea was to
make it easy for a visiting graduate to quickly find classmates.
Has any one ever fund the gravesite for a William Denning Henderson who
married Elizabeth Livingston, dau. of Henry Walter and Mary
Elizabeth is buried in the family Crypt along with her parents, but no
mention that her husband was buried there.
