Cover

A little over one-third of the members of the New Lebanon North Family posed on the south side of the second dwelling house. It appeared in the March, 1893, edition of Pomeroy’s Advance Thought newspaper. It was perhaps taken during the summer of 1892, just a few months before Elder Frederick Evans was released from being the first elder.
