|Mark Stoner||Lydia Hamilton Smith Site Photo|
I just wanted to thank you for the photo you added for the Lydia Hamilton Smith grave site in Lancaster. And it looks like it was a COLD day when you visited too!
I often visit the Hon. Thaddeus Stevens grave site at Shreiner Cemetery on Mulberry St. in Lancaster, but I haven't been over to St Mary's to try to find Mrs. Hamilton-Smith.
In fact I'd seen conflicting postings online as to whether she was actually laid to rest in Washington DC or Lancaster PA, so it's nice to know she is here.
Are you from Lancaster? Have you been to the Convention Center and seen her tavern and the cistern used in the Underground Railroad?
I'm going to try to make it to her grave site too now that I can use your photos as reference.
Have a great day!
You are very welcome, Andrew. Let me know if I can be of any help to you.
