Dedication Ceremony for Two Civil War Nurses

Elmwood Cemetery, Burlington, VT - September 23, 2017

A dedication ceremony was held to honor two Vermont Civil War nurses who happen to be a mother and daughter. Both are buried in Elmwood Cemetery in Burlington, VT, and until recently were buried in unmarked graves. Thanks to the kind offices of an anonymous donor, Paulina Hathaway and her daughter Sarah Hathaway Foy, both now have gravestone markers on their graves. Both women were pensioned Civil War nurses. The Vermont Civil War Hemlocks provided a salute and Taps for the occasion. Guests of honor included Jo Ann Tellez, 2nd Great Granddaughter of Sarah Jane Hathaway Foy.
