Regarding Delaware County World War I Memorial. At sometime after this image was posted, and before December 2010, a new crossover street was cut through and this marker was moved. I do not know where it is. The community is planning a new veterans park which has not been completed. The GE street view clearly shows that it is not there. The cannon has also been moved to storage. See:http://www.thisweeknews.com/content/stories/delaware/news/2013/08/12/cannon-movin-on-up-to-new-plaza.html
For what it is worth the gun is a German M.1893 Heavy 15cm Field Howitzer.
