The stump with the poem carved into it is currently located in the lobby of the Ranger Station in Winthrop Washington. According to Harvey Manning in the 100 hikes in North Cascades hiking book the stump was moved to Early Winters Visitor center in 1980. Do not know when it was moved to Winthrop

Just adding a little info to my previous comment. John Dubuisson,my uncle, among other things was President of the Chamber of Commerce and involved in Urban Renewal in the early sixties. He was President at one time of Rotary, and I believe also had been in the Lion's Club. Dorothy was involved with the Fanny Battle Day Home and we caroled every Christmas Eve to collect for that cause. She also was president of the Gray Ladies (I think that was their name) volunteers at St Thomas Hospital. They were members of the Richland and Belle Meade Country Clubs. Mr Neuhoff was on the boards of some banks. He built the first stacked car park in Nashville. He had a meat packing business and was famous for the spiced round that was popular at Christmas. His valet Myzell lived at the home and accompanied him on trips. When in town Myzell served as house keeper and cook. Dorothy belonged to a garden club and was busy with her garden in the spring and summer. They gave money for the chapel at St Thomas... as I recall at first it was a new chapel in the old St. Thomas, and then for the new, modern one at the new location. Upon Dorothy's death I gave both John's and Dorothy's portraits to the hospital. Dorothy had two sisters who were Daughters of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul. I think their names were Sr. Henrietta and Sr. Helen

Growing up in Nashville my name was Frances Laurentia Fossick. My mother was well known as writer, organist, choir director, and piano teacher. Her name was Eleanor Dubuisson Fossick.

Hello,

I am looking for a photo of the route 9 Mail Pouch barn taken from the Bike/walking path. I’m from St C and really miss the bike path but especially that barn. I’m into painting now and would love to paint the barn. Please, if any photos are available can you email them? Or text. ( 843-802-5131)

We’ve lived in SC (near Hilton Head) for 10 years.

The Lowther Family lived here for almost a year, 2003. All the photos in the Historic documents for this home show our home furnishings. We rented it for $3,000 a month, it seemed a beautiful place to live for awhile, but it brought us nothing but bad luck, including divorce within ten months of moving in. We all eventually made it back to California. The home was unsettling when you were there alone, definitely haunted, creepy, and a somewhat dark history, which I just read about. No privacy, too isolated, encounters with deadly desert creatures, including a giant centipede, a Gila monster, and a giant owl living in the courtyard tree. A strange, sad and lonely home. . .

The Adams Store was a two story brick building built at 208 Elm Street by the Adams family as a grocery store for the packing house workers who lived in the neighborhood of the plant. The Adams family moved their business to another part of town and only then did Rath Packing buy the store building to use as an annex to the Administration Building. In the photo above you can only see two windows of the old store at the left hand side.

718 E. Wells St. is the Henry Manschot House built in 1874. The architect was Charles A. Gombert.

The registration form submitted to the NPS has this to say about the house:

"The Manschot House is an excellent example of an Italianate style residence. It is three bays wide, two stories high on a raised basement and has a low hipped roof and bracketed cornice with a center pediment. It is constructed of cream brick with brick quoins at the corners of the main block. The windows have segmental tops with stone sills and hood molds inset with incised keystones. All masonry surfaces are painted green. The principal alterations include the replacement of the original main entry with the present Colonial style door and fanlight and the removal of the front porch in 1955.

"Henry A. Manschot was a successful butcher with his shop on Market Square. He had succeeded to the ownership of Jacob Nunnemacher's butcher shop in the late 1860s after working there since the 1850s. His business eventually failed and after the death of his wife he sold the house in 1891. In the 1920s, it was occupied by Francis E. McGovern after he finished his second term as Governor of Wisconsin."

The form can be found on the NRHP website at:

Hi,

I'm researching my family tree, and I have records of my relatives living at 718 Wells Street, Milwaukee, on the 1880 census. They were William, Ann and Alois Stanton.

Is the pink building that stands there now the house that would have been there in 1880? Would it have been single occupancy? What was life in Milwaukee like?

Thanks :-)

I noticed the unusual roof of the north side of this building when I was looking at the empty lot from the spanish looking hotel like building on the other side of the tracks.

http://landmarkhunter.com/211692-spanish-looking-building/

I found one article on the history of this structure.

https://www.therolladailynews.com/news/20160626/88-year-run-delano-oil-co-selling-gas-stations-stores-to-midwest-petroleum

This suggests that the warehouse may have been for a timber business by Jay Delano when he moved to the area about 1890. The company started a gas station in 1928. The business was sold in 2016, presumably the building was abandoned then.

Posted February 15, 2020, by fmiser (fmiser [at] gmail [dot] com)

I spotted this building on a drive through town a while ago, and tried to figure out what it was, why it was built, when it was built. I failed.

On a bright sunny day last summer I took some photos. The deep shadows caused me to switch my phone to HDR (high dynamic range) mode - but unfortunately I didn't tell it to NOT enhance the color. So while the green trees were bold, and the blue paint was bright, these photos exaggerate it a bit.

I'm glad I took those photos, because when I recently went through town the building location is flat, bare ground.

I'm really annoyed that I'm still finding zero information on the history!

My school friend Jessie O'Brien lived down the street from me in Langhorne, PA, before her family moved to London Purchase Farm in New Hope, PA. I knew it was an historic property but had no notion of its value or story. We were convinced there were ghosts there, of course. It was a beautiful place.....but far beyond my family's means...which I knew, but until this moment didn't really grasp...my goodness! It certainly sheds new light on what can happen if you found a company in an entirely new business, as Jessie's father had. Sigh. We didn't just move away from each other, but moved apart as friends, and I didn't know why....but the change in that family's (literal) fortunes obviously accounted for a lot. I often wonder what happened to the James O'Brien family. In a way, it hurts. But if anyone knows, I'd love to find out.

Most likely built by slaves. Nancy Jones owned 17 slaves listed in the 1850 Slave Schedules. At that time she ran a tavern in the house.

Is the facility open for rental or use at this time? I am a member of Gamma Chi Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated. This is a graduate chapter of professional African American women who provide community service to the Morgantown and Northern West Virginia Communities. I am interested in the history of the building and how it can better serve the community with my Sororities help. Gamma Chi Omega is currently celebrating her 75th Diamond Anniversary. We have been in the community a long time. I eagerly await your response.

Spoke with a landowner in the immediate area, he does not remember ever seeing this building. He said it has been 60-70 years since he has been in the area.
