General Dutton's America-- Part 2: Married On Leave from Army in 1863
The exhibit is divided into three parts: Sycamore As a Pioneer Town (1839-1860), Sycamore During the Civil War (1861-1865) and Sycamore in the Guilded Age (1866-1900).
The family of Everell Dutton arrived in Sycamore in 1846 and his father owned a store in the town.
During the Civil War, while home on leave, Everell married Rosina Adelpha Paine on December 31, 1863, in Sycamore.
His son George died in 1929 and was considered Sycamore's richest man at the time.
