In the History of Sidney, 1827-1976 the

(1892-1988), wife of Frederick Hilbert Prior (1892-1958), was born in Carlisle, Indiana. She lived in Sidney
for 56 years. In the early 1900s, when the picture was taken, this cottage belonged to P.N. Fightmaster

no children. The house is still standing (2016) at 215 East Byron Street, Sidney, Illinois.
