Robert - the whole world can be wrong, but you are alright. when I lived in Chicago I went to visit his house in Galina, that is the last town in Illinois. It was said that the town's people but him the house as a gift after he won The Civil War. At That time it cost $ 2000.00 and yes He was the town drunk, but very smart. Thanks... Lucilla
