Presentation on Elizabeth Oakes Smith

I did a presentation called Finding Elizabeth: Uncovering the life of local poet, activist and lecturer Elizabeth Oakes Smith for The Greater Patchogue Historical Society on June 17th at 7 p.m. in the Patchogue-Medford Public Library.
Thank you to everyone who came to listen to me for an hour. I had so much fun, and learned some really interesting details about EOS that I didn't know from some of the attendees.
I hope to return to this forum to give a talk on Seba Smith and the children of EOS. I'll post the date and time here if I am scheduled to speak again.

I was wondering if you might help me with some research that may begin and end with a few photo's. I have recently purchased a religious sampler with the name Elizabeth Smith, I have looked up the name and keep on coming back to your Elizabeth. Did Oakes Smith ever make anything like this?

I look forward to hearing from you

Best regards

Dear Internet Traveler,

Welcome to my writer's blog, started about six years ago for fun. Over time, the writing I have posted has ranged from personal reflection, to Long Island history research, to tall tales for my own amusement, to feature articles for local newspapers. As you can see from topics listed here, I travel in many mental directions in regard to interests. Click on the tabs and labels to explore my strange mind which senses that you may be having a criss-cross day. If so, perhaps this blog will distract you. However, please note that if you tell me my blog is beautiful just to get me to advertise rhinoplasty surgery and cheap drugs from Canada in your comment, I will ask the gods to give you a tail that cannot be concealed.
