This is the final resting place of Sa-Sa-Na Loft.  The 21 year old Mohawk woman from Canada was a stranger when she entered Owego in February 1852. Now, 167 years later, her grave has become a landmark on the hill, watching over the village.

Sa-Sa-Na and two of her siblings were traveling as a musical group to raise money for their missionary work. She and 2 other people tragically died as the result of a train accident while in the area. Sa-Sa-Na was buried in the newly constructed Evergreen Cemetery, her family unable to transport her body back to Canada. The Owego community adopted Sa-Sa-Na as one of their own. Moved by her early and tragic death, various women's groups and churches in Owego and the surrounding area collected donations to erect the monument, which was completed in 1855.

To find the actual GZ calculate the values of AAA & BBB.

N 42° 06.AAA W 076° 15.BBB

AAA = 628 + # of lines on plaque with more than 3 words (first name is 1 word)

BBB = 701 minus half the number of square bars on the side of the fence next to the bench,
minus the number of words in line 10,
minus the number of letters in line 4 (spaces and punctuation do not count)

You are looking for a small container with a write in the rain type of log and a pencil. There is a little room for swag and small trackables.
