Mary O’Hara, Retired Librarian

“My husband and I attended the memorial service for Thomas Elliott and my wish would be to have tombstones for all the people buried there– an acknowledgment of their existence.  There on this sunlight day in a roughly mowed cemetery, with no adjacent tombstones, Thomas Elliot was reconnected with his family.  In an amazing way, time compressed itself and his life was not so far in time from ours. The service connected him to the past and to the present.  And in the same way, I expect this book about Harriet Tubman to make connections for us.”
