    All of Anton's and Catherine's children were born and raised in this cabin in Turkey Creek (Merrillville), Indiana. This picture was taken 16 Aug 1903. Shown in the picture are Peter Fagen (far left) and his wife Hanna (far right). Their son Roy sits on the door-way steps. Peter's brother Nick is sitting on the ground and his wife Elizabeth is holding their daughter Margaret. Margaret's brother Michael sits to his uncle Peter's left and Michael's sister Catherine is the girl in front of her Grandmother Fagen on the left. The girl to Catherine's right is her 1st cousin Mary Schneider.

    (Thanks to Jim Hilbrich for the above description.)

    This cabin was still standing in Merrillville, Indiana until around 1997 when it was destroyed by fire.
