Click on headline for item with photo
From the Adair County News 70 years ago this week: this sketch (accompanying articleP and announcement in the September 25, 1957 edition of a plaque to be dedicated to mark the location of the girlhood home of Jane Lampton (Clemens). The text under under the sketch reads:
"Home of Jane Lampton, on corner of John Butler Lot
"On Sunday, September 29, at 4 o'clock the marker that locates the "Pink Cottage" will be unveiled on the square in Columbia. The 'Pink Cottage' was the girlhood home of Jane Lampton, the mother of Mark Twain.
"The public is invited to attend the dedication service that the members of the Jane Lampton Chapter N.S.D.A.R. are holding in memory of Jane Lampton."
The sketch is signed "Sallie A. Baker." Miss Baker (1872-1953) was a daughter of Judge H.C. & Dolly Lisle Baker. Her obituary referred to her as a "progressive and civic minded citizen" who was both a charter member of the Columbia Woman's Club and the founder of the Jane Lampton Chapter D.A.R. It also spoke of her as being "a talented artist and an accomplished musician."
