My local Home Depot has Graymont Super Limoid Type S for Mortar, but I'm not sure if that would be appropriate for this application. I have been patching the walls with mortar mix (2:1 sand:cement, cement is 1/2 Portland, 1/2 type S mortar mix)

Answer: 
Thank you for your inquiry. We recommend using a historic material on anything in excess of 100 years old. We'd recommend using a Type O or Type K mortar for your project. Please see a Home Depot associate on availability of this type of mortar nearest you.
