Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

WW I relic stain glass window

#1 Post by 72 usmc » Mon Mar 05, 2018 9:00 pm

Talk about a great WW I collectable even at the price. Asking price is approximately $2900. Only for the very rich. But what a nice top end item of WW I history to add to a large collection or museum. This is a church window dating to WW I in leaded stained glass measuring 23 by 79 3/4 inches of a WW I soldier killed in the war. IN MEMORY OF PRIVATE HENRY B. MENDELL WILLIAMSTOWN NY 3rd DIVISION CO. F.7 NEW YORK INFANTRY 1891-1918. I wonder if the soldier is buried in the former church cemetery. He was from Williamstown NY at RFD 1 and his date of death is Sunday 27 January 1918 from Broncho Pneumonia. I found out his father was George Mendell and died in 1933. His mother was Nellie Babcock Mended and died in 1909. Henry's middle name appears to be Babcock after his mothers. Henry died of disease while on furlough and was a private at Camp Green, NC. He is buried at Fairview Cemetery in Williamstown, Oswego Co. NY. I assume the church is gone or replaced its original windows. There is no history that goes along with the window. What a shame to not have any provenience with the sale of this item. Pictures are from the store and are not mine. Too good not to save some closeups for the WW I collectors.
Man if I was rich it would be mine. To bad it could not be $700, i'd drive from WI to NY to get it.
COMMEMORATIVE STAINED GLASS WINDOW HONORING: PRIVATE HENRY B. MENDELL 1918. FROM A CHURCH IN WILLIAMSVILLE, NY. Anyone know what church this was in?

Its a beautiful peace of history. Its great that has been preserved as a reminder of sacrifices our servicemen make.

I have seen some similar in the local churches in country towns in oz.
