Immigrant's Violin
1855
James Limerick brought this violin from Kentucky to Kansas Territory in 1855. Limerick played the violin around campsites in the evenings. The Limerick family settled at Rock Creek in Pottawatomie County, near the James Darnell family whom they met on the trail. Limerick eventually gave the violin to the Darnells.
