This is a photo of the Oliver family house in Onawa.  I am not sure if it is still standing.  This was the Family home of Samuel Addison Oliver and Hannah Towne.



Family picture of Hannah Towne Oliver with all the children John Franklin, George Addison, Nettie Maybelle, Mary Ellen, Jennie Rose, Cyrus Goldsmith, Annie Agnes, Joanna Blessing, Calvin Elijah, and David Cromwell Oliver.


This is a picture of Samuel Addison Oliver.  He was a District Judge, Member of the House of Representatives, Member of the second nominating convention for Abraham Lincoln.  ( I believe he was also a mayor of the city and gave money for the library and schools)  (1833-1912)
