Marker Text:

IN MISSOURI --1858~1861
The James P. Munhollen Relay Station, 20 miles from the Tipton Terminus, stood about 2½ miles southwest of Florence in Morgan County.

History of Mark:
Notice, on the State marker above the man's name is Munhollen, on the Thrasher marker (shown in my visit) the name is Mulholland. I have seen papers that show the name as Mulhollen. Have not found anyone who can definitively answer the question. The additional location just below is the actual station location.

Additional point: N 38° 33.894 W 093° 01.435
