A PIONEER FAMILY AND THEIR LITTLE SOD HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE

Family Dinner on the Trail Ed Hennessy and his family stopped for the evening as they traveled to Holbrook from the east. Even though they were on the road, they would have a hot dinner before turning in. Hennessy joined up with the Hashknife Outfit that ran thousands of head of cattle along the railroad line across northern Arizona in the late 1880’s. When the cattle business closed up, Hennessy was among many of the cowboys who stayed on in Holbrook.

Frontier Family in Texas In 1836, they declared Texas an independent republic.

Between 1836 and 1860, the enslaved population of Texas grew from 3,000 to 182,556. On the eve of the Civil War, African Americans in this state represented 93% of all black westerners.

Prairie Pioneers, Sod Hut, circa 1880 - “Prairie pioneers often lived in sod houses at first. There were no trees to provide logs, so turf was dug up in the shape of bricks. Glass windows were a rare luxury.” - With a sod roof arrangement, I have read that interior ‘rain’ occured for a day or two after plentiful outdoor rains.

1880s Nebraska: It wasn't at all unusual for a sod house to have walls three feet thick. When rain began to deteriorate the exterior face, a soddie dweller simply laid another layer of "Nebraska brick" on it. In addition to a sturdy house, this 1880's Custer County family apparently has a very good well which can be seen in the larger view."

Old Picture of the Day

Due to the exceptional quantity of passionate comments yesterday, I am pleased to announce that the Old Picture Embargo has been lifted. Once again you can enjoy your morning fix of Old Pictures.

The picture caption indicated that this was an Indian family.

An old homestead on a farm in Washington state, 1908. Notice the cat up on the beam of the log cabin. The guns, butter churn and spinning wheel reminds us of the self sufficient lifestyle of the first part of the last century.

Old Picture of the Day

Today we feature a picture of the grand band leader, John Philip Sousa. The picture was taken around 1900. I had thought about using this as a mystery person contest, because this picture is not a well known picture of him, and I thought people might not recognize him. Given that you figured out the picture of his wife yesterday, likely someone would have gotten it. Domestic Update: In the end, Lovie has two healthy babies. Lovie stopped sitting on the other eggs yesterday. When she gave up…
