I wanted to write a quick note to let you know how much we appreciated and enjoyed Emily Burton's article on Sophie Alcorn in your Sunday paper. I am one of Ms. Alcorn's descendants, her great-great-grandnephew. Close friends of our family now live in the Alcorn residence and invited us to the ceremony that was held Saturday.
Before I left Sunday morning to return to the Philadelphia area, we ran to Danville and bought several newspapers. We brought them back and read with great anticipation the article that Emily wrote.
I can say without hesitation that the article was well received and brought a smile to each of our faces as we read it. Emily truly captured the essence of the day and Ms. Alcorn's spirit.
