In the state historical marker survey can be found a marker for Silas Towne
(near Mexico, Oswego Co.). The marker refers to "Spy Island", a small
island off Mexico Point where Towne is buried. I have been on the island,
and there is an obelisk that marks his grave. I seem to recall that the
inscription refers to Towne spying on St. Leger's invasion force of 1777.

Question: does anyone know of any proof that Towne did indeed perform this
mission, and report it to...who?
