I'm researching Katherine Bayard & was wondering where you found that she attended Patapsco Female Institute. Are there enrollment lists available?

Wrong Cemetery?
You placed the William Wendall Searcy, Jr grave at The Hermitage (home of President Andrew Jackson)and I would like to know how he was related to the Jackson family?

Oak Hill Cemetery
I have taken the picture of the headstone you requested and will enter it on Leonora Searcy's page in a minute. When talking to the administrator of the cemetery he said only one Searcy was buried in the cemetery. At the Searcy plot I found the plaque (tombstone)you will see. It lists four names. I hope this helps you. If I can be of any assistance again let me know. I enjoyed taking this picture for you.

Patapsco Female Institute
I was curious to see if this is the school in which you were researching. I have another Rutherford County, Tennessee resident who attended the Patapsco Female Institute in Ellicott City, Maryland: Cora Alice Ready (b. 9 Nov 1842; d. 7 Sep 1890). Cora was the daughter of Charles Ready Jr. and his wife, Martha Alvord Strong Ready. Alice married Andrew B. Martin and resided in Lebanon, Wilson County, Tennessee.

Kate S. Carney frequently mentions Alice Ready in her Civil War era diary. They corresponded routinely and Kate and father visited Alice Ready while she was in school at the Patapsco Female Institute in Ellicott Mills. Kate wrote the following...

Thursday Aug. 26th 1859.

"Pa,and I arose very early & started on the train for Ellicott's Mills to see Alice Ready, when we arrived there was no conveyance to be had & we had to walk up to Patapssco, which they said, was a quarter of a mile, but it seemed more like a whole mile, for Pa, & I, both were out of breath by the time we reached the top of the hill, as Patapasco Institute was built on the very top of the high hill, and the grounds beautifully laid off, with a great many lovely flowers. We first asked for the Presiden tof the school, & then stated who we wished to see, & presently, Alice came in. She was looking better than I ever saw her, looking really fleshy for Alice. She was quite anxious I should remain with her, but it looked to lonesome out there for me. We soon brought our visit to a termination as we had to return on the eleven oclock train, so we arrived back in Baltimore, long before dinner."

Lastly, Alice's sister, Martha O. Ready, married the notorous raider, John Hunt Morgan.

Please let me know if you need any additional information on these families.

Here I found you again. You and I must be researching the same Searcy family.

W. W. Searcy
I have been researching the Searcy family. Interested to know why W. W. Searcy was buried in the Hermitage with Andrew Jackson and family. Do you know what connection he has with the Jackson family, if any?
