Myrtle's Mother

I'm continuing to research Myrtle Buckmiller. In the last few months, I've been working with libraries and historical societies across the country, and together we've discovered all sorts of neat things. Today I received photos of her childhood home in the mail along with newspaper clippings and property records. I already knew that in 1898, Myrtle's dad founded a town where she grew up, but today I learned that it wasn't her dad that founded the town, it was her mom!
