Another summer vacation at a lake cabin sounds so nice as this brutal winter is winding down! So, I thought I would continue my Wordless Wednesday (Almost) posts in that mode. This is a photo that I scanned from my Uncle Bob Weber’s scrapbook via the generosity of my cousin, Janet Weber Jenkins.
The Weber and Kuhn families took vacations from 1925 into the 1940s to Lake McCoy in Decatur County, Indiana. The families would rent cabins, such as this one where we can see them enjoying the porch and hammock. These vacations included mostly fishing and swimming, and as the children got older they went to dances with other teenagers. Even after growing up, they brought their spouses and friends to good ole Lake McCoy. This scene looks to be around 1926. The man standing against the railing is Harry Weber and Tillie (Kuhn) Weber is seated behind him on the porch. They are the parents of three of the girls in the forefront: on the hammock on the left is Gin and next to her is Peg. Just behind them is Rose. The other girl on the hammock, on the right, is Helen Kuhn, their cousin. Helen’s mother, Lillie (Stumph) Kuhn is barely visible on the porch.
I’m happy that Uncle Bob saved this special memory and appreciate that Janet shared.
Thanks for visiting Indiana Ties. Let me know if you’d like to share a family photo here. Or do you have one of your parents’ or grandparents’ memories of Lake McCoy to pass along?
