Revolutionary War Veteran Honored with Sign

The Galen Historical Society has erected a historical marker sign to recognize and honor our local Revolutionary War veteran, William Vermilyea, just in time for the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day. Mr. Vermilyea was buried with family members in the White School House Cemetery on the corner of Rte. 414 north and Kelsey Rd.
The sign was purchased through the joint efforts of Tom Sawtelle, Town of Galen Supervisor Steve Groat, the Town of Galen, the Village of Clyde, and the local SOAR organization, using a historical signage grant from the Genesee Valley Educational Partnership. We are very grateful for their assistance.
