William Blackwood

This simple stone marks William Blackwood’s grave in Riverside Cemetery.

Editor’s note: This piece from Natalie J. Woodall is the fourth part of the second series about Masons in Oswego. This series will focus on Masons who contributed to Oswego in some way.

Neil and William Blackwood’s long residency in Oswego made them witnesses to its development from a village to a city. Although born elsewhere they employed their talents and resources to improve their adopted community.
