|In Memory Marker|
Mt. Pleasamt Cemetery
Port Byron was proud to honor one of its civil war heroes on Saturday July, 30th 2011. The In-Memory marker ceremony was a beautiful tribute to such a courageous young man, Capt. John William Lockwood of Company F, 111th NY Infantry.
I would like to thank Senator Michael F Nozzolio and especially the office of Senator Charles Schumer for their assistance in working with the veterans administration on our behalf. I was pleased to sponsor this project with purchasing the needed documents to enable our Captain to receive this marker.

Tokens of Remembrance
The Julia Hibbard Tent #71 of Bridgewater, Oneida County, NY conducted an inspiring dedication service. Deposited at the grave in this ceremony were tokens of affection, the wreath of evergreen symbolizes undying love for the comrades of war, the single rose signifies purity and the wreath of grapevine represents a symbol for victory.
