Mary Lord Dimmick Harrison survived Harrison by over forty years, but is now buried on his right side. Russell is buried to his mother’s left, and Mary Scott Harrison McKee is buried with her husband, J. Robert McKee, just behind the Harrison lot. Elizabeth Harrison Walker is buried with her husband, James Blaine Walker, in New York. The landscaping of the Harrison lot is a gift of the Daughters of the American Revolution, of which Caroline was the first National President.
Each year, on the weekend closest to his birthday on August 20th, the cemetery continues to honor Harrison with a ceremony which includes placing a wreath of flowers sent by the sitting president at the foot of his grave. All are invited to attend. Feel free to contact the cemetery for the exact time of this annual event.
