Catalog Number 2009.34.1951
Object Name Print, Photographic
Description Black and white photographic print of an Fikee Jumper AKA Annia Faglia, widow of Johnny Jumper and mother of John Josh (Jumper), cooking over an open fire. Annie was born in 1879 and died in 1954 around the age of 75. The boy to the left of the photograph is Howard Micco.

"One day Fikee came to me (William D. Boehmer) at the Day School suffering with swollen ankles and some open sores. She wanted me to doctor her. I said, "Fikee, I am not a doctor, you should go to town to see a doctor." She replied, "Dan Parker says you are a good doctor." Dan had previously hurt his finger and I had cleaned it and bandaged it. The finger healed quickly."

Given the date of ca. 1938 and that the photographer is listed as Dwight R. Gardin it is likely that this photograph was taken prior to the Boehmer's arrival to the Brighton Reservation.
