"The above [sic] plaque was originally placed in 1929 on a rock base at the north end of Jay St. In 1943, the rock washed into Lake Ontario. The plaque was rescued and affixed to the Captains' Monument nearby until 2014 when it was remounted and re-dedicated to commemorate the Bicentennial of the event by the Williamson-Pultneyville Historical Society."
