Each day we bring you one stunning little glimpse of history in the form of a historical photograph. Enjoy!
That would be Seth Kinman
I've no idea really, but he sure looks like the "real" Grizzly Adams (if there was one).
Very good roger.Was it that easy?I had expected it to be a little more of a contest.PJM
Wow. I think Roger is right.
Yes, Roger is the winner.PJM
Well you klnow me always second fiddle, which by the way Seth did play. And he was a tall man for the 1800;s And he killled a lot of Grizzly bears in his day. He made me think of "Will Geer" as"Bear Claw Kris Lapp" from the Movie Jeremiah Johnson, when He ask Jeremiah if he could skin Grizz.
I guess PJM over-indulged during Holiday season and needs no breakfast.
Ellena,Oh, I will get breakfast . . . it just will not be a Victory Breakfast that I can gloat over.PJM
That would be Daniel Boone..
No, Roger was right, it was Seth Kinman.
PJMDidn't you post this earlier?
Good job, Roger!Ross, your memory is correct, Kinman was also Mystery Person on June 13, 2009.
So, the next time I'm in Texas, I'll stop by for my breakfast.
Those seeking more photo guessing are welcome to visit my site: natemaas.com at 8 am Pacific Time where another contest will commence. All are welcome, including PJM.
Good job, Roger. Guess that cold weather in ND hasn't frozen your brains.PJM: I am still wondering why you never guess at Nate's POM?
He made the chair he sits in and gave it to President Andrew Johnson in Sept of 1865. It was made from 2 grizzleys that he had captured. It was soft and comfortable but the greatest feature was by touching a cord the head of the monster bear would dart out snapping and gnashing like real life. He died when he was 73 by accidently shooting himself in the leg.
Hey is old Seth sporting a skunk hat?!
Judi, in response to your 9:43 question to Mr. PJM, I submit that it's for the same reason I've never visited the ENM's website: that would be treasonous to Mr. PJM.He is, after all the Evil Nate Maas.(He has, however, many times saved us from having to endure Mr. PJM's gloating over Victory Breakfasts, and for that we thank you, ENM.)
Joe, there is no treason in doing reconnaissance work work for PJM. And you are welcome to spy on the website anytime you'd like, I have nothing to hide.Tar Heels welcome anytime.
Just re-visited...I'v been studied the American History during the past 30 mins about the great Mountain man, Hunter, Elk Horn Chair maker,even so keeping good relationships with the former American Presidents...Anyway it was a great History Lecture for the foreigner...Thanks so nice some fun contest...!
I visit this blog everyday, damn! I hope we have a similar blog like this but showing Filipino old photos so that filipinos can also guess just like what you do. it's so cool. I might make one if you allow me :-)
Seth Kinman had a mule named Dave that used to bray when Seth played the Fiddle. When Dave died, Seth used Dave's skyll to make a Fiddle which he played for anyone who would listen. Seth was quite a character and enjoyed a drink, or two, or three. He killed many a Bear and many many elk in his day. He's buried at the Table Bluff Cemetary near Loleta, California.
