Two important revolutionary era documents will take center stage as the Early Owego Antique Center celebrates its First Anniversary in February. On display and offer will be a Diploma declaring William Barret of Virginia a member of the Society of the Cincinnati, signed by General George Washington and General Henry Knox at Mount Vernon on March 1st, 1787. Also an Appointment of Elijah Putnam to the Militia of Massachusetts, boldly signed by John Hancock, Governour, on September 20th, 1790 will be for sale. While little has been discovered about Mr. Barret, it is believed that Elijah Putnam moved to Tioga County, Pennsylvania and is buried there.
We are honored to be able to share these important historical documents with our friends and colleagues.
