The Past

Julia Swinehart and Katie Corl

The Swineharts owned the Verandah from 1845 to 1895. Their daughter Julia was born here and this picture was taken around 1865. I found a family member in Texas who had this picture and I'm trying to identify who is who. There are lots of Corls still living in this area and I'm hoping one of them can help me. Unfortunately Julia died young. She is buried with her parents 2 blocks away in the Lutheran Churchyard.

Letter dated 1865

I found this letter in the walls when I remodeled and it refers to Julia and her mother Maria.
