The Elmer McMenus Family – About 1885 or 1886


I have posted photos earlier this week of two of the children of Elmer and Emma (Forkner) McMenus, Lelia and Vivian.  Here is a photo taken about 1885 or 1886 in Lebanon, Missouri at Gordon’s Studio, showing Elmer, Emma and Lelia and baby Charlie.  Elmer McMenus was the oldest brother of my grandmother, Inez McMenus Shank.


  1. I don’t know why, but when I saw this photo, I thought of Nietzsche 🙂
