About 1910: "Uncle Jake" (Jacob Stingely Jr.) and his wife and a daughter pay a visit to the home and farm of Henry Messinger Jr., his brother-in-law. At the far right is my grandfather William Messinger, sitting in front of him is his father Henry Messinger Jr.; the woman behind him is Henry's wife, Jacob's sister, Mary Elizabeth; Uncle Jake is there with his arms folded; the little girl is Helen Messinger (born 1905). She has her arm on, who I believe is Sadie Bish Stingely, Jacob's wife. The girl at far left, I believe, must be Essie Stingely, Jacob and Sadie's youngest daughter (born 1894). My thanks to Barbara Williams Hattery for letting me scan this photograph. (Helen is her mother.) The Messinger Farmstead was a mile and a half southwest of the town of Fulton, Indiana.
