scan0368This is my mother and her siblings around the end of 1915 or beginning of 1916.  She is the baby in the middle, Anna Marie Shank, and she was born May 7, 1915.  That’s oldest sister Laura standing left, next is Mabel, standing right, then brother Press, with sister Marguerite on the right and the next youngest to my mother, Minnie, in front.  They lived on a farm about two miles west of the little town of Phillipsburg, Missouri, Laclede County.


  1. You have a typo. It says the baby was born in 2015.
