St. Patrick’s Day Agreement Implemented at Reading Cemetery

At midnight on St. Patrick’s Day, more than 50 people praised the 125th anniversary of the implementation of the agreement between Aruba O. Schaefer and Tom Hannaho at the Hannahho Cemetery in Nanny Goat Hill, east of Reading.

The leading musical foundation musicians played “Lass O’Galway” and “Nearer My God to Thee”.

The terms of the agreement are that if Hannah Ho died first, Schaefer would play those songs on his cornet on his tomb at midnight on St. Patrick’s Day, and if Schaefer died first, Hannah Ho would he. The grave was to be kept green forever with shamrock.

Hannah Ho died on February 10, 1897, and Schaefer first fulfilled the agreement five weeks later.
