Description
The monument recalls the service to colony and country of General Seth Pomeroy (1706 – 1777). Born in Northampton, Massachusetts, he developed useful and successful skills as soldier, leader, blacksmith and gunsmith. Pomeroy served in the French and Indian War and, later, when asked by the Continental Army’s commander-in-chief, engaged in the early fighting of young America in its War for Independence. He passed in service in Peekskill, New York, February 19th. • Extending upward over 27 feet, the classically designed monument, base, shaft and polished ball, is entirely of granite – Barre white, Quincy and New Brunswick, respectively. The work was created by architect W. Gedney Beatty. • The monument is situated in Hillside Cemetery, on Oregon Road near Durrin Avenue, Cortlandt, New York. Pomeroy is buried – his grave’s exact location not known – in the adjoining Old Cemetery at Van Cortlandtville, situated at the Old Saint Peter’s Episcopal Churchyard, Oregon Road where it intersects Locust Avenue. • The work was sponsored by the Sons of the Revolution in the State of New York. It was unveiled in 1898, on June 17th, the anniversary of the battle of Bunker Hill. For this fight, Pomeroy, then 69 years old, had volunteered as a private soldier.
