scan0096bThis is a photo of my mother’s first cousin, Reba McMenus taken sometime around 1904-05, I think.  Her father, John Francis McMenus, was my grandmother’s older brother.  Her mother was Margaret Moore McMenus, and they lived in Phillipsburg, Laclede County, Missouri all their lives.  Uncle Johnny was stationmaster for the Frisco Line Railway that stopped in Phillipsburg for many years.  Reba married Clarence Harrill, the local barber, and had four children.  Through posting on this blog, I have been able to make contact with some of Reba’s grandchildren.


  1. I’m one of Reba’s granddaughters. I have found a box of old pictures from Stormye’s. Would like to send scans to you to see if you can identify any of the people in the pictures. Please contact me.
