200th Anniversary of Lucas Sullivant's Death

The Franklinton Historical Society held a memorial celebration at Greenlawn Cemetery on the 200th anniversary of Lucas Sullivant's death in 1823. Originally interred at the Old Franklinton Cemetery, Lucas Sullivant and his family, were reinterred at Green Lawn Cemetery. The Old Franklinton Cemetery had become landlocked and flood-prone.

Randy Rogers, Executive Director, of Greenlawn Cemetery read from an 1843 dedication ceremony of the monument erected to Lucas Sullivant and the pioneers of Franklin County in the Old Franklinton Cemetery.
