HOORAY, the internet works again here--looks like it might have been a monitor prob, but not to worry, I have a C-clamp holding the button down and a new internet service provider. We'll see, huh?Here's a wonderful photo of old Buckman--across today's Highway 25--it's Frank Mischke's Hardware store. I suspect Larry found it on Ancestry, but I don't know for sure. The building to the right looks like Mueller's General Store and Saloon, which burned down in ___? And look, there are mail boxes on the left, so this was before the Post Office was established in town.
Anyway, YAY, we're putting Buckman back together again, in photos.Oh, and THIS house is identified as Dr Seguin's (the young doc from Canada who took care of the dying Paul Hesch after he fell from the wagon, in 1900). Didn't Seguin have rooms in Schmolkes house, as well as an office there? I suppose he might have built a house in town, tho. Wonder where I got the impression that he didn't stay in Buckman long...
Yup, we'll find out eventually ☺.
See? Larry's on the job, and I'm fighting ISP companies---JUST FOR YOU.
