The Slover – Rogers Cottage gets a special visit from its creator and namesake John Slover’s three great–grandchildren. They are the great-grandchildren from Slover and his first wife May Frances Firman. Their mother, Martha, was the second youngest daughter of Slover’s daughter Nettie and her third husband, Mr. Haupt.
The great-grandchildren, Mildred Damet from Oklahoma, Georgia Funkhauser from Wyoming, and Richard Gordon from Dallas along with his wife Imelda visited the cottage and brought the Alvin Museum Society some Slover family photos to help give more detail to this historic home.
As they toured the home they were able to go over the stories they had heard from their childhood as well as view some items they have never seen before that Slover created.
