Jake and Clara Mathes
This picture was taken in late Summer 1974 of Jake (1891 - 1979) and Clara (1900 - 1980) Mathes. After Jake died, I worte Aunt Clara a letter and told her about the move to Colorado and having Uncle Charlie to the house for Easter dinner. She sent back an Easter card and then along came a letter about a week after that. She died about a month after that. Clara was very much interested in family history. I wish I could have gotten to talk to her at length about some of the people she remembered.
