This photograph was taken in front of 305 West Chatham Street, Metamora, Woodford County, IL. It was the WILTZ family home for many years. It was taken after January 30, 1894 and before March 20, 1895, as Clara Rose DIESEL shown as a baby was born on the first date and Margaret (THEISS) WILTZ, also shown, died on the latter date. Note the wooden sidewalk in front of the picket fence. The house has since been replaced.
