The Block Home
This is the hmoe of John and Margaret (Schluneggar) Block taken between 1905 - 1915. It was just east of the Blue Mound Road, near where Darwin and Weta Forth lived. John and Margaret are seated near the cetner of the porch in rockers. George is to his father's right and Willie is between his father and mother. Ben Block, is just behind his mother. There are three girls on the porch, most liekly the three block sisters, but I cannot yet tell you which is which. Ther other older couple may be Margaret's brother Alfred Schluneggar and hiswife, but I can't be sure of this just yet. Will post more about this picture at a later time, so keep checking.
John Blocked lived here until his wife's death in 1924. Shortly after that he moved in wioth his son George and family and remained there until his own death in 1926. They are buried in the Cisne Cemetery .
Jan 12 - I blew up the section of the picture with people in it and perhaps made it easier to see by adjusting the lighting and focus. Also used a cooler lens. can anyone name the people? There are three children, I assume the three oldest gfrandkids - Ben's probably.
