An important photo of the Post's history left to right; Walter Stanton Mrs. Celia Derby and Joseph Fox at a Memorial service in Maple Grove Cemetery. This photo was used for many Post publications during the 20s and through the 1940's. In April 1941 at the request of the members of Samuel Derby Post, the April 1941 issue of the Chautauqua County Legionnaire was dedicated to Mrs. Derby, Gold Star Mother, whose 87th birthday was observed April 26th, 1941.




I want to thank Harold at the Meyers Library and Frewsburg Historical Society for providing access to this information. Steve Nelson
