Thanks for stopping by.

Update from Iggy:
this might be Charles Wesley Jobes (Oct. 21, 1891 - Aug. 20, 1969)

This photo went Full Circle Number 126 on August 28, 2015


  1. According to Find A Grave Memorial# 15890759 created by Michael Jobes. this might be Charles Wesley Jobes (Oct. 21, 1891 - Aug. 20, 1969)

    Charles Wesley Jobes, son of George Jobes and Annie May Martin. Charles served as a Private, Company C, 352nd Infantry, in WWI. He was inducted 26 February 1918. He then transfered to Co. C, 130th Infantry till discharge. Discharged 29 May 1919.

    He is buried in Fort Snelling National Cemetery, Minneapolis, Hennepin County, Minnesota.

  2. Perhaps, he is wearing a buffalo hide coat. Whatever it is, it's interesting and probably very warm.

  3. I sent an email to Michael at Find a Grave.

  4. Is this the month for adorable children photos? Love this one. Wonder if Tired Teacher is right about the buffalo hide coat idea...

  5. I mailed this photo to Michael in Pennsylvania yesterday. I found his email at Find A Grave.
