The reason for my interest is that one Mary Harris is
buried there. She was supposedly the first wife of my
husband's great grandfather, Andrew Jackson Rader. We
never knew her maiden name. Their son was Jacob Frank
Rader.

We visited the place where we were told Poor Farm is
located, but there was nothing we could see there of any
headstone for her. There is a church on the opposite side
of the road, but we hadn't checked to see if they have a
list of names which might include her. When she passed
away, she was Mary Harris, I think divorced, and with two
sons by Harris. Her death was due to tuberculosis of the
bowels.

Thanks for your reply

Jan
