Description

The glass negative for this picture as well as 200+ others were found in the house’s attic in 1946, by Everett Block. Archibald Thompson and his family lived in the house in the early 1900s. The Kammin family lived in the
house from the 1920s-1930s, and Everett Block and his family resided there from 1946-1963. The house
was torn down in 1993. Pictured here are Archibald Thompson (1838-1915) and his daughter Eva. Eva would later move to Lander, Wyoming. The house was at the West edge of the NE ¼ of Section 21, in Sidney Township, south of Sidney, Illinois.
