Morrison family cabin, at Chance, is one of oldest in Adair

Cabin built in 1815; Trabue-Russell House built six years later

Robby Morrison writes:
A somewhat interesting addition to the story is that the family traces it roots back to the very beginning of Adair County and before. The cabin built in 1815 on Charlie Morrison Road is still standing today. It was originally build by the Patterson family which was Eb's mothers family. Given that the Trabue Russell house was built in like 1821, that old cabin is probably one of the oldest buildings still standing in Adair County.
