Whoever owned this photo had the good sense to write a little background on the reverse side. On the left is W.G. McMenus, my great uncles, whose grandparents, Joseph and Sarah (Sallie) McMenus moved from Tennessee to Phillipsburg, Laclede County, Missouri in 1840. On the right is L.D. Helbert, whose family also settled in the Phillipsburg area but moved to Mulvane, Kansas about 1870. Apparently Mr. Helbert returned to Phillipsburg and this photo was taken August 24, 1939 “on the old home-site of the Helberts”. Don’t you just love Mr. Helbert’s hat?
