Owney received this tag from Fred D. Lockwood of Hornellsville, New York. The tag is one of two Owney received from businessmen in that city. The other was from Mason L.

Hornellsville was on at least two railway lines that Owney traveled, the New York & Erie and the Buffalo and New York City lines.
