RESIDENTS OF FAYETTEVILLE, NY, DURING THE 1940's
Fayetteville in the 1940's was a quiet village with a population of just over 2,000. The nationwide post-WWII housing boom and improved roads, which made commuting to jobs in nearby Syracuse more practical, caused Fayetteville's population to double over the next three decades. It is now a bustling and very desirable suburb, noted for its affluent citizenry, excellent schools, and very low crime rate.
In 1942--the period just before rapid growth--the Fayetteville Directory Association collected the names and addresses of all those served by the Fayetteville post office. This data was published and sold for just $1 a copy. The booklet also included the husband's place of employment, and the wife's given name. Only the names of their children over 18, and still living at home, were listed.
I obtained an original copy of the directory, and, realizing that there is a limited--and diminishing--time frame beyond which the data is unlikely to be preserved, I decided to track down all those listed in the booklet, and their children.
What follows is the information that has been obtained in the course of this project.. It has been gathered from old newspaper accounts, directories, census records, other governmental records, alumni lists, and, in rare cases, from personal recollections. In all, I have found additional data on about 98% of those listed. While a good faith effort has been made to verify the accuracy of what is related here, very often the records are incomplete or even contradictory, and confirmation is not possible. Therefore, the information here should be considered as tentative, or suggestive, but certainly not definitive.
Anyone who can suggest changes, corrections, or additions, or who can provide any "clues" to the present whereabouts of those listed, is encouraged to do so. You can send me email by clicking here. You can also sign the Guestbook at the bottom of this page. Thanks very much for your interest. Similar online registries for the nearby communities of Lyndon, DeWitt, and Manlius are available. Together they offer updated information on about 10,000 people who lived in this area from 1940 to 1960. Click here to see more CNY sites
