Sarah Ann Harrison, Laurel Hill Cemetery, Phila., PA

Sarah Ann died in May of 1850. Her husband, George L. Harrison, was a successful merchant. They were living in the vicinity of Spruce Street at the time of her death, with their three children and three Irish domestics. One of their immediate neighbors was Philadelphia common pleas court judge James Campbell who would later become PA State Attorney General and then U.S. Postmaster General from 1853-57. They weren't living in the cheap seats, and Sarah's monument definitely reflects that. Here she is, overlooking the Schuylkill River in Old Laurel Hill.
