My mother, W. Maud (Orr) Holmes, was born on the original homestead (picture
of the house built of sod and rock). I was also born on the Orr homestead northwest of
Woodston, Kansas. The
first picture is of a house with one part sod and the other part rock. The
original house on the homestead was sod. The rock portion was later added.
The next picture is after the sod portion of the house was removed and a
2-story frame addition was attached to the rock portion. This is the house
in which I was born.
