(Not so) Wordless Wednesday: Metzner cabin

On the backside of this photo is written "Cora B. (Metzner) Haley born in this log house. August 21, 1868". There is no date on the photo.

Cora was my paternal great-grandmother. She was born August 21, 1868 in Jay County, Indiana, the daughter of John Adam and Clara (MOULTON) METZNER. Cora married my great-grandfather Eli Weldon HALEY on July 21, 1888 in Jay County, Indiana and she died in Jay County on April 28, 1955.

At some point, someone had taken a photo of the original in an attempt to make it larger.
