My Hometown on Monday - Week 13 - The Pingrey Sisters

My Hometown on Monday - Week 13
The Pingrey Sisters - 1910

This picture of the Pingrey Sisters in 1910 in the Coon Rapids Centennial 1863-1963 Book is very important to the town of Coon Rapids, Iowa,  over the following 100 years, in my humble opinion.

Along with their brothers, these siblings, their spouses and their descendants, have continued to make major contributions to the business and social fabric of the community of Coon Rapids... to this day, and beyond. Perhaps we can go into more details, as the weeks go by.

In the 1910 U.S. Census, the W. H. (Wilson H.) Pingrey family is listed - actually in Orange Township, Guthrie County, Iowa, near Coon Rapids:

W.H. Pingrey, 44, Aug 1855, parents born in Vermont, married Lucretia in 1879
Lucretia Pingrey, 37
Grace O. Pingrey, 19 (Grace)
Jessie B. Pingrey, 18 (Jessie)
Mary G. Pingrey, 16 (Gertrude)
Frederick W. Pingrey, 15
Franklin A. Pingrey, 12
Jennie  M. Pingrey, 10 (Maud)
Ada L. Pingrey, 7 (Adah)
Bertha L. Pingrey, 5 (Bertha)
plus two others.

Families are Forever!  ;-)
