The Walton Cemetery in Delaware County New York contains the graves of 155 brave veterans of the Civil War. Most buried here are Delaware County boys who were part of the 144th NYVI. The cemetery sits on a hill across from the Delaware County Fairgrounds. The Union monument is at the center of the cemetery on a small knoll. It contains the names of all the brave men who are buried there. The 144th NYVI was part of only one major battle, the Battle of Honey Hill. It was the third battle of Sherman's march to the sea, on November 30,1864, near Grahamville South Carolina. One soldier from the 144th was killed there, Pvt. Thomas Ayers of Co. A. Another soldier from the 144th, Charles Webb, died on July 23, 1865, from wounds suffered at Honey Hill. He is buried in the Walton Cemetery, near the monument.
