John W. Lockwood of Co. F, 111th NY Infantry.  This tribute has been two years in the making, with Roe's research discovering that Capt. Lockwood's remains were interred in a mass grave at Camp Salisbury, North Carolina. Learn about Capt. Lockwood's experiences during the civil war, with many details being shared with the public for the first time.  The Sons and Daughters of Union Veterans of the Civil War will conduct the marker dedication.  Veteran groups are welcome to stand with colors and join the parade from the Lockwood family burial ground to the flagpole for a special flag raising to honor all service men and woman who have served in the defense of American freedom. In the event of inclement weather, the service will be held at the Dana L. West Jr./Sr. High School Auditorium at 30 Maple Ave.  Refreshments will follow the services at the Port Byron Senior Center at 16 Sponable Drive (formerly Mentz Drive) next to the Mentz Town Office.
