The McKinstry Family Bible

Below is a picture of the McKinstry farm, early 1900's.  
This was taken from the field across the road from the farmstead.

This is the same farm, decades later.  
I believe it is Robert McKinstry (Wayne's Dad) standing in the road near the mailbox.

Winnie McKinstry and her future daughter in law, June Mills

The old McKinstry house, where Wayne McKinstry grew up.  This is probably the 1950's because I see a TV antenna.  Otherwise, it is much the same as decades before.

Elmer and Mildred Gladish married on June 5, 1948 in Zeigler IL.
