From The Geyserville MuseumBill Rose's Hook & Shoulder HarnessOver the next few weeks, we will showcases some of the historic pieces we have in the museum. This hook & shoulder harness was made for William "Bill" Rose (1874-1964) by a local harness maker and blacksmith. While clearing the Rose family land on Canyon Road in Dry Creek Valley, Bill's "left arm was pricked by a cable and blood poisoning set in. They kept tapping the arm to drain the infection." They had no antibiotics, "just orneriness."Dr. Sewell or Swisher from Healdsburg "came out to the house, and two of three of his brothers held him down (on the kitchen table) while they chloroformed him and took his arm off.""He could do more work with one arm as a lot of people could do with two."Son, William "Harvey" Rose, Sr. (1911-2009) oral history 1987 by Louise (Bosworth) Davis ...

From The Geyserville MuseumDr. Elisha Ely letter 1855Dr. Elisha Ely wrote a letter from “Washington Township, Rupsian [p = ss, for Russian] River, Mendocino Co., California,” dated September 2, 1855, to his youngest brother, Oliver Curtiss Ely, age about 19, who had been living in Connecticut, and written in care of Henry Curtiss, Esq., [uncle or cousin?], San Francisco. Dr. Ely explained to Oliver that he had received “a letter from Mother [in Connecticut]... middle of August contained the gratifying intelligence that you were on your way hither & that you would probably arrive at San F. somewhere from the first to the middle of October. I drop you an early line that you may receive it immediately on your arrival. Of course you will visit us & we want you to come prepared to stay as long as popible [p = ss, for possible].” “Your way here will be via Petaluma & from there by stage to Mr. Godwin’s store, Russian River. That will bring you within a quarter of a mile of our house [location of Geyserville Grille]. The Petaluma Boat land you can easily find. The fare to Petaluma is $2.00. The Stage fare to Godwin’s [just south of Ely home] $3.00. Inclosed [sic] you will find a letter of introduction to a friend of mine in Petaluma who sends an express to Godwin’s store. He will tell you how to get here.” “We are well here. You will doubtless find letters from home awaiting your arrival. Henry can tell you all about the Petaluma Boat. Nothing new here except a pair of twins now about a month old. We will do our talking when we meet. Your affectionate Brother Elisha.” (Original letter is in possession of great, great granddaughter, Fairfield DuBois, with copy in the Healdsburg Museum & Historical Society, Healdsburg, California).Photograph attached under glass was taken about 1858-9 of Dr. Elisha Ely, Mary Campbell Ely, Louisa Maria Ely, and Asenath Narcissa (Campbell) Ely. Standing is Oliver Curtiss Ely, Dr. Ely’s youngest brother. (Courtesy of Curtiss Ely Frank, Jr. and Anne “Fairfield” (Frank) Dubois, great-great grandchildren of Dr. and Asenath Ely).

From The Geyserville Museum Photo of Obed Bosworth & donkey In Harry Bosworth’s collection of photos, was a 6 ½ x 4 ½ photo glued under an 8 x 10 broken glass of seven-year old Obed Bosworth on his donkey taken about 1901 in front of his grandmother Susannah Hively Kilgore and his parents’ home. Old Scotch tape held the two parts together. Written on the back was “Mrs. Geo. Bosworth, Main St., Geyserville.” Ann was fascinated by the early faded image and determined somehow to restore it. She photographed and worked with the image in Photoshop to further reveal Obed and his donkey, the Kilgore-Bosworth home, and wooden base framework holding the 1900 water tank that went down in the 1906 earthquake. Written on the cardboard backing is “Mrs. Geo. Bosworth, Main St., Geyserville.” But Ann dared not try to remove the glass and glue backing. In early March 2022 Ann met Don Silverek who was visiting the Geyserville Museum. Don, an image archivist and historical image preservationist, offered to try to recover the photo. Slowly testing each layer, he was able to remove the old tape and splinters of glass, soften the unknown glue, remove the gel-like red color paper, and finally, release the two parts of the photo from the glass. Then he scanned the original to enhance the faded images. This project was the culmination of preserving an important image of young Obed Bosworth and his home in Geyserville 120 years ago, plus a restoration challenge for professional Don Silverek, and a desire of Ann Howard to release a trapped photograph from under broken glass and glue. Thank you all for your help and expertise. ... See MoreSee Less
