Many people have portions of this manuscript (now in various pdf files) that appears to be compiled by someone in the late 1890's and updated until sometime in the 1930's??? Can anyone tell us who wrote this? is the original still intact? The original documents would have letters from the 1850's. See the attached document that was translated from a letter written by Joseph Bearer (Buhrer) in 1850.
This would be an incredible document to find. Very grateful for any information or actual knowledge of it's whereabouts.
