To whom it may concern:
I work at Rising Sun Motors in College Park and was made aware of an urban legend concerning a forgotten cemetary on the fields of the Abraham Lincoln Library of the U.S.D.A. I investigated and found it in terrible run down condition and entreated the Maryland Historical Society, The U.S.D.A. and everyone I could that we should clean up , trim , and manicure the area out of respect.

Now I see that they have cut the trees down from around the site. I worry that my drawing attention to it may have given someone the idea that it is in the way. Resting there is the family of John Brown 1797-1862,wife Sarah, and child. Please make your readers aware that this site is historical in context and should be preserved in recogition of their pioneer spirit.

Sincerely,
Alexis M. Morano
