John W. Jones Monument (Horseheads North, New York)


This small commemorative marker made of granite and bronze is located within Woodlawn National Cemetery, the location where John W. Jones was the caretaker in charge of burying the Confederate dead of Elmira Military Prison, located nearby. It was paid for with funds raised by local high school students and Elmira citizens and dedicated in 1997. The cemetery is located beside a town cemetery, also called Woodlawn, where John W. Jones and Mark Twain (among other prominent Elmirans) are buried. The John W. Jones Museum is located across the street from the national cemetery.
