Payn is shown at right top, at left, with Wrigley Bailey, 11, of Mentor, and Marilyn Payn, his wife, who portrays Mrs. Lincoln.
The event also featured Sarah Hale, as portrayed by Kathy Romito, of Tallmadge, who is shown at right bottom as she reads the prayer she wrote, titled “Our National Thanksgiving.” Behind her is John Burns, who was portrayed by Jeffrey Jones, of Kent. Hale (no relation to the Bath Hales) petitioned Lincoln to make Thanksgiving a national holiday.
Romito is shown again at right middle with Tom Edgar, of Hinckley, as he carved the first turkey at President Lincoln’s table. Those who attended were treated to an early Thanksgiving feast of turkey and all the trimmings.
