Description

Artist's rendering of Anthony Stock Farm of Atchison County Kansas and Nemaha County Kansas; Residence of Col. D.R. Anthony and Leavenworth Times, Leavenworth Kansas; Neely's Forest Addition in Leavenworth, Kansas

The Anthony Stock Farm and Leavenworth Times Newspapers were owned by D.R. Anthony, brother of women's suffrage leader Susan B. Anthony, former Lt. Col. in the Union Army, newspaper editor, self-proclaimed Jayhawker who participated in the Border Wars (and is said to have bragged to family that livestock he acquired during these raids gave him his start in raising stock), dueled with and killed rival newspaper editor R.C. Satterlee, opposed slavery and hated the Confederacy. His grave marker at Mount Muncie Cemetery in Lansing, Kansas, proclaims "He was no hypocrite." Incidentally, D.R. Anthony and Susan B. Anthony were second cousins to the seventh Governor of Kansas, George T. Anthony. For more about D.R. Anthony, visit these links and others:
