This 1893 photo was taken the day twins Albert and Alvina Brickner were baptized. This family photo shows nine of the 12 Brickner children. The two oldest, Henry and John F., were away working. The youngest, Edward, was not born yet. The twins were the first children born in the new farmhouse John and Christina Brickner had built, but not the first children in the family. The older eight were born in the two log cabins on Crocker Road. Henry, the oldest, was born in Illinois. This new house was on Crocker Road, which later became Ind. 149.
