Abe Merrill’s First Visit to Skidmore, 1910

Better late than never. From the Skidmore New Era (Skidmore, Missouri), March 24, 1910:

Visits Skidmore for the First Time.

Abe Merrill, an old citizen of Nodaway county, and his son were visitors of our city Friday. This was the first time he has been on these grounds since 1868, forty-two years ago, and twelve years before the first building was erected in Skidmore. In 1870 he was in Graham and has not been there since.

Mr. Merrill is a well to do farmer, living four miles north of Maryville. He and his son came over here in a new Ford car.
