Cruet Set
c 1865
Kohrs family members noted that this cruet set belonged to Grant. It may have been used by his wife, Quarra. Grant wrote of her, 'A better and more clever woman could not be found, without education. She was a good mother, industrious and gay in her moods and friendly with every one regardless of nationality or color. She could speak several Indian languages as well as English and French. She was expert with her needle too and could ride horses that many could not.'
