History walk

Morning Journal/Kevin Howell

Eyes for Olivia presented a history walk through the Historical Hope Cemetery in Salem to benefit the Curing Retinal Blindness Foundation. The event featured conductors of the Underground Railroad. Shown here are Rick Haldi, Jillian Pieren and Kathy Leguard as Daniel Bonsall, Young Susanna Myers and Martha (Sharp) Bonsall, respectively. Runaway slaves were housed at the Bonsall Farm a mile west of New Albany just outside of Salem and transported at night by Susanna Myers to the next stop on the Underground Railroad.
