OSAWATOMIE — When Osawatomie third graders filed into Kerri Springer’s classroom at Trojan Elementary School last week, they saw Foster Grandparent Julane Williams. But if there was a name tag, it would have said Emma Adair. Williams is a member of the Osawatomie Time Machine historical performing group. The Osawatomie Journal reported that she gave the students a living history lesson of the life of Emma Adair during the days of Bleeding Kansas. Emma Adair was the daughter of Osawatomie pioneers and abolitionist activists Rev. Samuel and Florella Brown, and the niece of John Brown.
