McMenus, Phillipsburg, Laclede County, MissouriThis photo was taken about 1904-05 and it shows the original McMenus family home near Phillipsburg, Missouri.  That is Rebecca Frances Smith McMenus (Aunt Frank) in the rocking chair, and her half brother, Wesley Smith, on the ground.  Standing to the left are John McMenus and wife, Margaret Moore McMenus, Aunt Frank’s son and daughter-in-law.  They lived with his mother in this house when they were first married as her husband, Joseph McMenus, died in 1901.  She eventually became ill and moved into the town of Phillipsburg before she died in 1908.  Click on the image for a larger view.
