192 Messinger1855CabinIn1926
This 1926 photo shows the home east of the town of Fulton, Indiana built around 1855 by Jacob Moeschinger and his two sons, Jacob Jr, and Heinrich (a.k.a. Henry Messinger Sr., my great-great-grandfather). They built it shortly after they arrived there from Baselland, Switzerland.
Standing in front of it are two of Heinrich's children (in their old age): Henry Jr. and his older sister Mary Messinger Richardson. (Henry Jr. either sold or lost the farm this cabin around 1890. I think this cabin was demolished in the 1930s.)
