JOSEPH McMENUS about 1875 – 1880

001eeThis is a photo that was copied from a tintype.  It is my great grandfather, Joseph McMenus, born 1838, died 1901.  He was born in TN and was only a baby when his parents, Joseph and Sally Selvidge McMenus, moved from Monroe County, TN t0 Laclede County, Missouri in 1840.   The family name was originally McManus, but through the years, spelling variations commonly occurred and the name today is still McMenus in this branch of the family.
