Famous grave... sort of

Vale Cemetery has many families who were famous in Schenectady buried in it. One of those families is the Westinghouse family. The famous member, George Westinghouse, Jr., is buried in Arlington Cemetery, but much of his family lie here. George's father, George Sr. invented the thresher, so his family was quite well known even before George Jr. did his inventing. George Jr. attended Union College, also here in Schenectady for a few months before quitting to start his career inventing.
