The Binghamton (NY) Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution recently shared a post to the "Revolutionary War Research" Facebook page. A follower of that page suggested that the CMH could have some artillery experts who might comment more authoritatively on that post.
The article pertained to a cannon that was found in the Susquehanna River near Otego, NY (just downstream from Oneonta). Some think it may be a cannon lost by the Clinton leg of the Sullivan-Clinton Expedition in 1779. Others believe it looks more like a piece of small 19th century artillery.
We are hoping more light might be shed on the object. Regardless of what period it came from, it seems to be something worthy of further research and understanding as to how it might have ended up in that location.
