Syracuse: Strangers tended an Elbridge soldier’s grave for 70 years: Now they know his face. “John Crotty was 21 years old when he died helping liberate the Dutch from the Nazis during World War II. For 73 years, the Elbridge man’s grave, in Margraten American Cemetery in the Netherlands, has been tended to by a succession of strangers who made young soldier a part of their family. But they had never been able to put a face to his name — until recently.”
