The Mysteries of the Two Fiddles

The photograph on this page was taken on May 10, 2009, which    happened to be both Mother’s Day and the birthday of Edna Micheau Penny, who’s shown here.  She’s examining a violin which belonged to her father, Joseph Perry Micheau (1888-1975) of Prairie du Rocher, Illinois.  It had been many years since she had seen the violin.  Apparently, there is another violin like it at Creole House in Prairie du Rocher.

Where did these instruments come from?  Who taught their owners to play?  When and where did they play?

These are some of the mysteries of the two fiddles.
