Typed from the original document titled STANTON by Benjamin P. Thomas, Page 68, Chapter 4, Titled "At the Heights of the Law".


The time and professional preoccupation dulled the ache in Stanton's heart caused by Mary's death, and by mid-1850's he was mingling more often in society. His renewed interest in social life and gained impetus from his aquaintances with Ellen Hutchison, a tall well-poised girl, sixteen years his junior, with deep blue eyes and luxurious blond hair. Her father, Lewis Hutchison, was a descendent of the Explorer MERIWETHER LEWIS and had accumulated substantial wealth as a shipper, warehouseman, and wholesale foodseller. His family was socially prominent in PITTSBURGH and owned a church pew directly in front of Stanton's.


There is no ISBN number for this book but rather a LC Card number of 61-17829. The only other person to write a story on Secretary of War Edwin M Stanton was Andrew Carnegie. I am trying to get that book now. Both Andrew Carnegie and Photographer Mathew Brady were students of Samuel Morse.

I am trying to account for everyone buried in the Lewis and Clark Cemetery lot C32 at Versailles Cemetery in Pittsburgh.
