Henry Wilson-Commissioned Child's Rocking Chair

Title

Henry Wilson-Commissioned Child's Rocking Chair

Description

Jeff Durell of Barrington has loaned this item to the Farmington Historical Society for viewing and we now have digital photos of the chair that we will keep in the online museum. It is a small child's rocking chair, purportedly commissioned for Henry Wilson's niece by Henry Wilson himself. While there is no documented proof, he has anecdotal information and letters from Senator Wilson in his possession which substantiate the claim. He is related to Wilson by marriage and has genealogical documentation.
