I've "rescued" an old photograph of John SCOLES of Knoxville, IA which was
taken at the Parker Studio in Perry, IA sometime in the 1890's. John appears
to be in his 20's or 30's at the time the photograph was taken. Based on
limited research I was able to locate the following information regarding
John and his family:
John C. SCOLES was b. 1866 in Knoxville, IA to parents Curtis W. SCOLES
(1837-1899) and Sarah Francis "Fanny" CRADDICK (1841-1881). John was one of
5 children born to this couple including, Albert Haynes; John C.; Hamilton
W.; Keziah; and Louisa SCOLES all born between 1861 and 1876. John married
Blanche Adella "Della" BATTLES (1867-1954) on 31 May 1893 in Dallas, IA and
together they had two daughters, Ruby I. SCOLES (1894-1895) and Thelma
Frances SCOLES (b. 18 Jan 1901 in Perry, IA-d. 1964). John died 10 May 1927
in Perry, IA and is buried in the Violet Hill Cemetery in Perry, IA. John's
death certificate lists his occupation as Photographer.
His daughter Thelma Frances SCOLES GROVES died in Las Vegas, NV on 3 Mar
1964 and her daughter Bonnie Lea JOHNSON of Las Vegas, NV was the informant.
