Subject: [LENHART] Seth A. Lenhart

I received a letter yesterday from an extremely generous person who visited The Salem United Methodist & Evangelical Church Cemetery at Drehersville along Rte 895 between Molino & McKeansburg. He told me Emma C. And Seth Lenhart are buried there. There are 2 identical reddish stones about 12" high plus a tall square monument for their children.
