Description:
I've "rescued" an old photograph of Will H. JACOBY of Amsterdam, NY which was taken in Amsterdam at the Dan B. Wheaton Studio in 1901. Will is noted as 5 years 10 months and 2 days old at the time and Carrie and Zackie's son. The address 27 Dewitt St. is also noted on the back of the photograph. Based on limited research I was able to gather the following information regarding Will and his family:

William Henry JACOBY was b. 20 Jan 1896 in Amsterdam, NY to parents Zachariah Radcliffe JACOBY (1859-1932) and Carrie or Carey A. SHULER (1863-1945). Will had one sibling, a sister Mable Laurane JACOBY (1890-1898). Will married Wilhmenia MCGIBBON (b. 1901) and together they had a son, William Richard JACOBY (1929-2005). Will died 13 Aug 1966 in Amsterdam, NY and is buried in the Fairview Cemetery in Amsterdam, NY.
