---------------------------
Linus, also known as "The poet of Kiskiminatas", was a locally famous author, poet, artist, and farmer in Armstrong Co. Pennsylvania. Linus married Mary Alice Brown in Somerset, Armstrong County, Pennsylvania on the 18th of May, 1850. They had at least 7 children: Rachel Ann 1853-1942, Callie 1857, Era F. 1858, Charles H. 1859, Cortez W. 1864, Paul T. 1871, and Eula 1876. All children were born in Armstrong county, Pennsylvania and I suspect all were at or near Kiskiminatas. Our family owns one original copy of a book authored by Linus with the title "Original Poems Vol. 1" it was copyrighted in 1882 by Linus Townsend. We acually know very little about this increadable man and his family. I would love any additional information, documents, pictures and storys!!!!
