John Franklin Jacoby
(5 Jul 1858 - 27 Apr 1934)

Only a few small news items were found on J F Jacoby. Then a couple pages of the
Jacoby family history posted by a family member turned up. It's a very nice, detailed accounting of the life of Jacoby.

A copy of one of the pages is at the right.

The cabinet card here would have been finished between 1890 and 1899.

Des Moines (IA) Register - 12 Aug 1906

The connection in the above news item is uncertain. The E C Jacoby here might be C E Jacoby, a brother of J F Jacoby.

Update 29 Jul 2018:
A descendant has confirmed that this would be C E Jacoby. "You are correct in that the E. C. Jacoby mentioned in the article on the drowning of Glen Jacoby (John Franklin Jacoby's middle son) was Charles Edward Jacoby, Glen's uncle, J.F. Jacoby's brother. Another article erroneously said Glen was the son of C.E. Jacoby. Glen did live with his uncle for a short period of time including, I believe, at the time of the drowning."
