The bioigraphies above are the result of considerable research. In order to get enough names for all the streets and to keep the alphabetical sequence used in naming the streets, it was necessary to use names of deceased Army Engineers who either were not paraticularly prominent or on whom Libraries in this territory had no biographical material. Those named are listed below:

Atkins Avenue, Caples Street, Davenport Street, Downing Street, Endress Street, Falley Street, Guthrie Avenue, Iry Street, Jewett Street, Johnston Avenue, Kimball Avenue, Lockwood Street, Longfitt Street, Perkins Avenue, Perry Court, Platt Avenue, Pullen Street, Snow Avenue, Stanton Avenue, Thomas Street, Thompson Street, Tunis Avenue, Van Giesen Street, Willard Avenue, Young Street
