with his wife Odie, father-in-law Augustus Wildey and all his children. To the right of Linc, is his oldest child, Harry Jessee.

Augustus Wildey & Mary Jane Roberts were wed June 8, 1872 in Albia, Iowa. The Roberts and Wildey families all moved to Jewell County, Kansas between 1872 and 1876. Their daughter, Ossie Della “Odie” Wildey, was born Oct 13, 1877 in Mankato, Kansas.

In the Virginia U.S. census of 1880, Abraham Lincoln "Linc" Jessee was 11 years old, living with his father Archibald Jessee. At 11 years old, Linc was out of school and is listed in the census as "farm labor".
Sometime, between 1880 and 1890, Linc Jessee migrated west from Virginia to Kansas, probably to join up with his sister's family, who had been farming in Kansas for several years.
