This antiquity is still a family heirloom. It was passed down from parent to child in the direct line of: James (1) Nicholas (2) Joseph, Joseph, Joseph, Simeon, Joseph, Joseph Jr. MD (died in 1864) and has been preserved by the family all these generations. It clearly shows all of us how precious these relics are to Olmsted's today.
