"The eldest daughter of Charles and Isabella Dinsmore Flandrau, Patty, as she was called, was born on the Dinsmore farm. After her mother’s death in 1867, she came to Boone County to live with her grandpa and Aunt Julia. She attended Miss Nourse’s school in Cincinnati where her interest in writing and drawing was encouraged. At the age of twenty-one Patty married Tilden Selmes and the couple had one child, Isabella. After Tilden’s early passing, Patty ran a ham business on the farm. Her intelligence and wit attracted men like Teddy Roosevelt and Gutzon Borglum. " --Cathy Callopy
