Other Information

Stone cleaned in 2021 In addition to the verse engraved on Adam Borden's Veteran's Administration gravestone, Patricia E. Borden, a great-great grand-daughter of Adam, has provided National Archives, Navy Department,and other records substantiating the genealogy and Civil War status of Adam. These records show that he enlisted in the Navy as a seaman in NYC on June 11, 1862 for a period of three years. During that time, Adam served on the Navy vessels Adirondack and Rescue and was appointed Acting Masters Mate on June 6, 1863. We wish to thank Patricia for providing us with documentation of Adam's genealogical and Civil War records. Town Almshouse records show he entered the Town Farm on November 13, 1870 and died on December 15, 1870 and his body was taken away by friends. Source: Almshouse Records.
