A famous Pennsylvanian who is not buried in Pennsylvania
The blog was extremely surprised to encounter Robert Fulton's monument in the graveyard of Trinity Church in lower Manhattan. It seems quite reasonable to have supposed that this native of Lancaster County would have been interred a bit closer to home. If the blog were cleverer it could work in a mention of the Fulton Opera House, where the hard-working Jon was once employed...but all the blog can recall from its schoolgirl days of studying Pennsylvania history is a delightful story of the delegates to the constitutional convention taking a break to watch one of Fulton's inventions on the Delaware River...surely all present at that event must have delighted in the thought of the wonders the machine age would bring.
