Commemorative Plaques & Flagholders
Old Guard N.G.S.N.Y.
||This flagholder was found in Albany County NY on the far eastern boundary
near the Vermont border. Unfortunately I did not photograph the tombstone
it was with but it also included an American Legion flagholder and a Spanish
American Veteran flagholder. These, of course, can be moved so are not
necessarily associated, but if so it gives us a time frame for this person.
My own guess is that this could be National Guard State of New York
Any ideas will be appreciated or if anyone can find anything on this Sep.
Co. let me know. Thanks, Joyce M. Tice
Subj: RE: NGSNY
Been a long time since I visited your flagholder site and had a little bit of time before logging off for the night.
Check out these sites:
A friend of yours, J. Russell White, e-mailed me and asked me to take a look at that photo (flag holder 32 etal). NG does stand for National Guard, a designation given to State troops from 1862 to about modern times. These units often had Veteran Associations attached to the regiments. So the person buried there probably served in a 32 Separate Company as well as its veteran association. You should contact the NYS Military History Institute for further information.

71st Veteran Association
National Guard of the State of New York
The 32nd Seperate Company was located in Hoosic Falls, NY, It became
Co M of the 2nd Infantry Regiment, NYNG sometime around WWI. About 1922
became the 1st Battalion HQ Co. of the 105th Infantry Regiment. Sometime in the late 40's or early 50's it became Co. C of the 105th Infantry
Regiment. The armory is still there and now houses an armor unit. John LaBarre

Saw spot on your site where you talk about a NGSNY Plaque......
I have a photo, not of the Company you mention, but of a similar outfit not too far up north from Hoosic Falls, near Lake George NY.
Photo is from 1883 of Rockwell's Corps., 18 Sep. Co. Inf. in East Lake George....Thought you might like to see what they looked like.......at least in 1883.....
