For those in the Engineering field, this company with locations in the Syracuse, Rochester, Utica-Rome, Albany, Buffalo and Middletown areas may be one to look into: Our Partners | Careers | United Technologies

I know that when it was known as Carrier, there were Black Engineers recruited to the Syracuse area to work there, many cases from HBCU’s and also played a part as to why the East Side of the city and its Eastern suburbs has had a visible Black middle class for decades. You can also find Black dentists, judges and teachers in that area, with many also attending HBCU’s. United Technologies still has R&D on that campus.

As mentioned before, Corning Incorporated is similar in this regard.

Xerox and Kodak in Rochester were/are also similar and is why much of the Black middle class in that area has been in outer SW Rochester and suburban SD’s such as Rush-Henrietta and Gates-Chili for decades. Some affiliated with Xerox would also live in outer NE/East Rochester and the Eastern suburbs in smaller degrees as well.

A historical and military reference from Bath:

https://www.steubencony.org/Files/Do...ame/haley.html

https://wskg.org/news/they-call-me-c...e-haley-story/ (shout out to WSKG, the PBS affiliate for the Southern Tier)

So, there have been Black residents of the Southern Tier that were affiliated with the Buffalo Soldiers and the Tuskegee Airmen.

As mentioned before in this thread, Bath once had an AME or AME Zion Church and I believe many of the residents there now are affiliated with the VA or whatever other industries are in the town. A historical reference to that church from 1843: https://books.google.com/books?id=T8...church&f=false


A sports reference I'm familiar with from there: Andre McCloud - 2013 Football Roster - Alfred University
New York high school football record book (He is Bath Haverling's all time leading rusher)


Another historical reference related to Bath and Waterford: https://books.google.com/books?id=yf...church&f=false


Another Haverling HS historical picture reference from 1914: http://www.classmates.com/siteui/yea.../218346?page=5


This 1897 graduate of Haverling HS was married to AME Zion Pastor Theodore Auten: https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/...rence-a.-auten


https://books.google.com/books?id=pX...h%20ny&f=false

http://www.classmates.com/siteui/yea...217128?page=29 (zoom in at Class of '97)


Perhaps relatives of Mr. Haley from 1909 and 1931: http://www.classmates.com/siteui/yea.../218666?page=3
