Artifacts and financial cataclysm

Halloween in Chariton also was the 103rd anniversary of the death by suicide of Frank R. Crocker and the cataclysmic collapse of First National Bank, which he managed for the Mallory family. I've posted images of four artifacts related to the Crocker family (including the photo above) over at the Lucas County Historical Society blog site, which is here. More information about the "remarkable self-destruction of Frank R. Crocker" may be found here.
