It took me a while to find these photos of my excursion to Osawatomie, Kansas. My last post dealt with the marriage of Merritt and Mary Luther Anthony inside the Adair cabin, pictured above. Below is the exterior. Note the whitewashed walls.

 

It seemed pretty comfortable for a cabin, and I can just imagine the minister presiding in his nightclothes while his family, similarly clad, looked on. Somehow I think it was a brief ceremony!

    Do you have any photos of Jocob Merritt Athnony in later life. It looks like he went by Merritt only. The only photo I have seen of him as a soldier. I am identifing folks in a 1897 family photo.
