      Thanks! That’s a great idea!!

      I was so blessed to come across this home. It is so close to a pasture in the Flint Hills that is very dear to me, my precious mother’s final resting place. I can see an angel in the clouds!!!

      He was a Doctor who practiced medicine in Missouri and Kansas. He was only in the Florence area for a couple of years. They didn’t live in the house very long. I don’t think I could ever leave that place! Quite a home. He died in 1905 and is buried in Baxter Springs, KS. Sometime on my way to Missouri I will stop and try to find his grave.
