Most of the information below was gleaned from War Department announcements that appeared in the Syracuse Herald-Journal. Some of the servicemen and women listed on these pages did not live in Solvay or the town of Geddes, but in neighborhoods associated more with the village than with the city of Syracuse where their homes were located. I've corrected what I believe were spelling errors, particularly in regard to names. However, I'm sure errors remain. To correct them or to add people I inadvertently overlooked, contact me at the email address at the bottom of the page. — JACK MAJOR

Again, 909 Avery Avenue is just outside Solvay, in the city of Syracuse. However, the 1930 U. S. Census listed the David Winkworth family as living in Solvay.

Sgt. Woyciesjes was Eastern intercollegiate light heavyweight boxing champion for three years while at Syracuse University. He enlisted in the Marines in February, 1942, and participated in the invasion of Cape Gloucester and also served on Guadalcanal. (1/25/44)

This is just the tip of the iceberg as far as the brothers Woyciesjes are concerned. Not even the tip, actually. We created a separate page to cover this remarkable pair of Solvay High School graduates.

We also found a mention in a 1943 story that their older brother, John P. Woyciesjes, was a petty officer in the Navy, though later stories — and there were several — discussed only the exploits of Michael and Americo Woyciesjes.

His sister, Nellie, was married to another World War 2 veteran, John Nozynski.

On July 5, 2007, Zygmund S. Zamojski and his wife, the former Helen S. Wrobel, celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary.

Note: Solvay calls many of its north-south roads "avenues" and its east-west roads "streets." Gertrude, running north-south, is listed on maps as an avenue, though newspapers in the '30s and '40s often referred to it as a street. That probably indicates a change in designation because while the Google map of Solvay shows "Gertrude Avenue," it also includes "Gertrude Street Park."
