1898 picture of Henry Messinger and Mary Stingely Messinger's family. The children are, starting from the left, Belva, Anna (in the back), Eva (in front), and my grandfather William Henry Messinger on his mother's knee. (Not pictured is Helen, who was born in 1905.)
(Note the watch tucked in Anna's belt. It appears to be attached to a lanyard around her neck.)
The father, Henry, looks pretty mean, ...kinda scary, doesn't he? Dad reassures me that this was not the case --these expressions are simply due to the fact that they were told by the photographer that they must diligently refrain from blinking while the photo was being taken.
