Dead Fred's Genealogy Photo Archive, a free, fun photo genealogy research web site devoted to helping you visualize your heritage!

Dear readers,

We need your help. 90% of our expenses are covered by donations averaging $10, though not many visitors contribute. If each visitor reading this right now gave $2, we would have enough to operate DeadFred for a year. That's right, the price of a bottle of soda would do it. If DeadFred is helpful to you, please take a moment to help us. We are a very small group of volunteers serving thousands of readers daily with very little outside support. DeadFred is a place to share and discover the faces of your ancestors. The funds we receive go toward maintaining and improving your chances of discovery. Please help us so we can continue to help you.

Thank you,
Joe Bott

Comments: Herman Heinrich Jacob (Nee: ) | Westfalen Germany | 1851-1900 | Comments: I believe that the man standing second from the left is my great-grandfather Herman Jakob (Jacob), (born 16 October 1861; died 15 May 1936). Herman immigrated to St. Louis, Missouri around 1881 probably from Radiwig, Herford, Westfalen. For the first few years he lived in St. Louis he lived with Ernst Jakob, who was his brother. Ernst was also a cigar maker and appears in the St. Louis directory for 1884-1885 and then disappears. Anyone with information about Ernst Henrich Jacob born 6 August 1859 and baptised at the Evangelische Kirche Münstergemeinde, Herford, Westfalen, please contact me. This picture was in the possession of Herman's son, Arthur, and on the back is written "H. Jackobs, 2116 Madison" one of Herman's earliest addresses in St. Louis. Herman was a cigar-maker by trade, and he played the zither for amusement. He married Annie Wirth of Knittlingen, Wurttemberg, Germany, in St. Louis, Missouri on 20 July, 1886. I believe this picture was taken in Germany, before Herman left, and might be the family he left behind. Do any of these people look familiar?
