Photo of the Month
Dinner party at the W. H. Cecil home, Boone County, circa 1900. Boone County Library/Mrs. Frank Dickey Collection
The lender of this photo was unable to provide any information other than what is noted above. We believe W. H. Cecil is William Harrison Cecil, (1854-1941). The 1900 Boone County census lists a William H. Cecil family living in Harrison, with William Cecil's occupation being that of a "general merchant."
A memorial page and obituary for William Harrison Cecil is included on Find A Grave.com. The obituary notes that at one time in Cecil's career, he was "perhaps Harrison's wealthiest citizen."
