From Kingston Historian Edwin Millard Ford's book Street Whys: Anecdotes and Lore About the Streets of Kingston, New York, pages 183-184:

"This street was named for William Lounsbery who served as the second mayor of Kingston in 1878-79. He was born in Stone Ridge, New York, was educated at Kingston Academy and graudated from Rutgers College in 1851. After being admitted to the bar in 1853, he opened a law office in Kingston. During the Civil War he was commissary of the Twentieth Regiment as a first lieutenant. He was elected to the New York State Assembly in 1868 and in 1879 became an assemblyman of the Forty-Sixth Congress. He died on November 8, 1905, leaving his second wife, Alice Van Buren, and a daughter, Elizabeth L. Gleason."
