      I recently came across a print published by the Bronx Historical Society a few year ago and found an interesting biographical notice about Albert E. Putnam’s son,  Albert William Putnam, born Sept 27th 1877.Cedar Ridge Spuyten Duyvil

      Thanks for that, Tom.  I had never seen a color version of that print.  I believe that house was in the vicinity of modern day Henry Hudson Park.

      That military record is interesting–Squadron A was a prestigious cavalry unit based out of the Upper East Side and it sounds like Putnam served with them as part of the Pancho Villa expedition.  But he was also stationed at Van Cortlandt Park, so he was not always so far from home!
