Full Circle 126

This Full Circle began when I left a message at Find A Grave.

Thank you for your email. It was quite a surprise, as that I have very few photographs of my Jobes family.  I have no doubt that it is Charles Wesley Jobes, my grandfather's first cousin. I would love to have the photograph. What would it take to obtain it?

Charley Jobs DL ant Numbwer 1961

Photo Number 1961

I mailed the photo on August 10 2015.  I know that Michael was very busy taking care of a very ill parent.

In the meantime I wrote this:

Hi Michael,  I have a photo of Sarah Martin I believe she is Annie May Martin Jobes Mother.  OR Charleys Grandmother.   Sarah was a Pryor, I also have some photos of the Pryor Family and then some of The Swanson family.... they all seem connected.

You should check out Photos 1981 Sarah Martin,1980  Irene Martin for sure and then backwards into the Pryors and Swensons 1962,1963,1964, 1965,1966,1967 and 1968.

  I mailed the photo of Charley Jobes yesterday, you should have it Thursday.  Connie

I will wait to hear from Michael to see if he wants the other photos.

As for Charlie, we know this much about him from Iggy’s tireless research!

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.

From Michael:

Charles Wesley Jobes was born 21 October 1891, Maple Grove township, Hennepin county, Minnesota. He died 20 August, 1969 at Robbinsdale, Hennepin county, Minnesota. Son of George Jobes and Annie May Martin. He served as a Private, in the Army during WWI, and is buried at Fort Snelling National Cemetery. He never married.
Both of his grandfathers served in the Civil War. His paternal grandfather, Bishop Jobes, served as a Corporal, in Company K, 1st Ohio Light Artillery. Bishop fought at several battles, including being at the Battle at the Brickyard, about 4pm Day I, at Gettysburg. Bishop's artillery unit held off Hay's and Avery's Confederates, while the Union line collapsed and retreated into and through Gettysburg on Day I. Charles's maternal grandfather, Stewart Martin served as a Private, in Company K, 2nd Ohio Heavy Artillery.
Both Bishop and Stewart are buried at Weaver Lake Cemetery, in Maple Grove.
Charles had two siblings, Alvin Earl Jobes and Hazel May Jobes. Alvin was married to an Edna Susan Moore. Hazel was married to Floyd J. Gilbert.
Again, I greatly appreciate this photograph. Probably was pulled from a group of photos due to its very uniqueness. An example of how quick old photos can be lost, usually forever. Should you ever come across any other Jobes photographs, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. I hope Michael's very ill parent is feeling all better now. Taking care of one's parents is a hard job.

  2. Great research and thanks for sharing. Best wishes!

  3. Even though I'm not related to any of your "full circles", I find the stories interesting. Thanks for all your interesting work.

  4. It will be interesting to see whether those several other photos line up in the same family. Then you'll have a string of Full Circles!

  5. All these people are my relatives i am blown away at all the info ive gathered here its a bit overwhelming trying to get it all straight. Stewart Martin was my Great grandfather and Sarah Pryor was my Great grandmother..... my heads spinning LOL
