Abstract

This is the register of interments, 1843-1981, at Fair Hill, a Philadelphia burial ground administered by Quakers. Fair Hill was one of the first racially integrated cemeteries in Philadelphia, and is the final resting place of many prominent women's rights activists and abolitionists (both Quaker and non-Quaker), including Lucretia Mott and Robert Purvis. More information about Fair Hill, including a browseable version of the burials database, are available at the Historic Fair Hill website. Source material from Friends Historical Library of Swarthmore College; data prepared with the support of Historic Fair Hill.
