Stecher monument photograph   Save
Harry Kinley Collection
Description: The photograph shows a headstone in a cemetery reading "Stecher," which sits between two small pines. More headstones sit before and behind the Stecher monument, with large trees growing throughout the cemetery lawn. The stone most likely marks the grave of George J. Stecher, Harry Kinley's maternal grandfather. George J. and Christina Stecher immigrated from Germany to Upper Sandusky, Ohio in 1854. Photograph by Harry Evan Kinley (1882-1969), a native of Upper Sandusky. Kinley was active in local events and organizations, and spent his professional career as a clerk at his father's store, and later as a traveling salesman for the Marion Paper & Supply Company (1934-1962). Kinley was also an avid lifelong photographer, and the bulk of the Harry Kinley Collection is comprised of glass plate negatives documenting the Kinley family, the city of Upper Sandusky and Wyandot County and surrounding areas.
