  • I wonder what success she had in the community. As I understand it, beer is an everyday drink in Germany to this day.

  • Sharon your blogs are great. You've added another piece to our family tree search. The Gill Bros. Saloon was owned by my grandfather, James Gill and one of his brothers (not sure which one). We knew he had a saloon on Main St, but could never track down the exact address.

    Also, Rudolf Huhn on your city directory listing lived 2 doors down from the Gills. Mr Huhn built the Huhn/Harrison house on S Lorimer for his wife Cecilia. The home (along with a very sizable donation) was donated to the university by Huhn's son-in-law, Bill Harrison. SEMO let the home go into terrible disrepair. Fortunately it was bought and restored and is now the West Bank Bistro.
