Thank you all! What a true blessing to be able to set this up for display and research this piece. I found the relationship between owners family line and the maker Jacob Meadors. His first cousin married into the owners line in 1866! To much fun.
Beautiful. I've listened to it 4 times in a row!
Wow what a find! It certainly aged nicely.
Good golly, the Meadors sounds good! I'm glad you were able to acquire it, Dan!
I would not have believed that this sound came out of the pictured dulcimer had you not told me!
My, that is a beautiful sound.
