Please contact me. We are restoring the final residence of Laura Hawkins in Hannibal, MO to open it up for tours this Labor Day. I found your blog as I am compiling historical data for my talk on Laura this Sunday.

I am getting ready to restart my blog "RaisingLaura." You may post a comment to this blog, http://raisinglaura.blogspot.com/
