I am trying to track down Pittsburgh lawyer Edwin M Stanton. I found a reference to President Abraham Lincoln's secret visit to Pittsburgh around May 1861 with the Lincoln family. I am wondering if anyone would know about this visit.
Some pictures were discovered of the party in the ferry boat just west of Pittsburgh.
Abraham Lincoln with a very short beard
Col Elmer Ellsworth- body guard
Ward Hill Lamon- body guard
Dr David Metheny- local Pittsburgh MD
William Wallace Lincoln- The President's son
Thomas Lincoln - The president's other son
Albert Edwards - William's friend
Lockwood Todd - Mary Todd's cousin
Francis Todd Wallace- married to Dr William Wallace
Margaret Todd Kellogg - 1/2 sister to Mary Todd
John Hay - Lincoln's personal secretary
Levin Handy- nephew of Photographer Mathew Brady.
Jack Boyle - Ferry Boat owner of the boat the picture was taken on.
I know Abraham Lincoln visited Pittsburgh Feb 14 1861 on the death of four Lewis Children by Typhoid Fever. Benjamin P Thomas states on page 68 in his book STANTON, that Edwin M Stanton's wife Ellen Hutchison was a descendant of Meriwether Lewis.
