  • Sharon, thanks for another great blog. I didn't know the Hawkins family or remember the house as particularly interesting. However your credit to Sally Wright Owens' 1972 'old house' series has lead me to a wealth of historical information on homes and families from my old neighborhood near St Vincent's seminary. I believe there about 32 stories in Sally's series; I've read bout half thanks to Google news archive. Anola

  • Thanks for the kind words, Anola. You've come upon a real treasure in finding Sally's series. As with all of her reporting here at the Missourian, she did an excellent job on the "old house series." It's been a great resource for me over the years.
