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 A historical reference to that church from 1843: https://books.google.com/books?id=T8...church&f=false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Another historical reference related to Bath and Waterford: https://books.google.com/books?id=yf...church&f=false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


http://www.classmates.com/siteui/yea...218293?page=23 (swipe to the right, at the bottom)


and 1932(second row in letterman's sweater): http://www.classmates.com/siteui/yea...217126?page=33
An interesting article I came across in terms of Bath in 1899: African Americans of Bath -- in 1899 - Blogs - The Wellsville Daily Reporter - Wellsville, NY

Related to the last historical reference: http://www.classmates.com/siteui/yea...853506?page=19 (1938 from Richburg Central School(now Bolivar-Richburg))


Also, if you look at old yearbooks from some of the other small towns mentioned in that last historical reference like Friendship and Portville, among others, you can find Black students sprinkled throughout as well.

I know it has been mentioned earlier in the thread, but this is a historical marker from Owego about its African Methodist Episcopal Church and its location: Historic Site - Fox St. - Owego, NY - New York Historical Markers on Waymarking.com

A related historical reference is of Rev. James H. Nichols, who was born in Binghamton in 1842 and served at the Owego Church: https://books.google.com/books?id=mL...church&f=false (swipe page to the left) It mentions that he served at churches in Chatham, Albion, Amityville, Lockport, Setauket, Glen Cove, Jamestown, Middletown and Rochester. Given that he died in 1899, this illustrates that these Upstate and Long Island communities have long time Black populations/communities.
