Patty Flandrau Selmes: Life of a Nineteenth-Century Woman in Boone County and Beyond

Cathy Callopy, Dinsmore Program Director

Born on the Boone County farm of her grandfather, James Dinsmore, during the Civil War, Patty Flandrau Selmes expanded the horizons of that family, both geographically and through her connections with notable Americans of the time period. Though she befriended many, including Theodore Roosevelt, and lived an adventurous life on the frontiers of the United States, her letters often reflect a lifelong struggle with depression. This is a story of her life.
