The "mill folks" family reunion, 1905
Neighbors of Opal's who live around the "mill by the far woods".

Photographs of Opal's neighbors

This is a photo of the McKibben and Patten family reunion of 1905. These are the families whom Opal calls "the mill folks" who worked at the "mill by the far woods".

This picture is the only known photo of Sadie McKibben. The man who wears gray neckties is also in this picture. Most of the people either live near or work at the McKibben Mill and are mentioned in Opal's diary.
