Abstract:

The collection consists of a typed copy of Eliza M. Ingraham's reminiscences of life in rural Leavenworth Township, Brown County, Minnesota during the Nineteenth Century. The majority of the paper consists of Ingraham recalling a log cabin near her home called the "old Hoff place." In another section, she retold a tale about lost treasure buried near the cabin by American Indians escaping from soldiers. The paper ended abruptly after she recounted the cabin's demise during her childhood.
