||John Plank Geiselman lived on a rural farm about seven miles south of Bonneauville. He often patronized a garage and store in Bonneauville. John was a poet, yodeler, and a kind gentleman. He is best known for his private museums. One housed a completely stocked general store from the 1800's. Another contained an amazing array of Indian artifacts which John started to pick up from Adams County fields when he was just a boy. Thirdly, John had a nearly priceless collection of Civil War artifacts, mostly from the battlefield in Gettysburg where he grew up. The Smithsonian Museum was once in negotiation with John Geiselman regarding the acquisition of his collections. The deal did not materialize because understandably, the Smithsonian could not agree to display the complete collection exactly as it was found in Mr. Geiselman's museum. 216 pages.
