Abel and his wife, Thankful Wilkinson
- Haystack (17 KB)
This is one of my favorite pictures. It was taken early 1900's. Little boy is Delbert Kress, man with beard is Henry Elliott, man on right is George S. Wilkinson, son of Abel. Boy on top of haystack is one of Sarah Wilkinson Devines sons.
Delbert is my father and grandson of George S. Wilkinson. Delbert says they started pitching hay around a pole until it got that high. I believe there is some kind of scaffolding underneath the haystack.
