Oldest Messinger family photo (family of Jacob Moeschinger who emigrated from Baselland Canton, Switzerland to Fulton, Indiana, USA in 1855). This photo was taken probably February of 1880 on the occasion of the marriage of Mary Elisabeth Meshinger (seated left) to John Clinton Richardson (standing left). Seated right is her mother, Anna Maria Wagner Moeschinger; standing right is her younger brother, Henry Messinger, Jr., my great-grandfather.
