Frederick Hamilton Jeffryes

I'm looking for any info on Frederick Hamilton JEFFRYES or his wife Julia. They were listed in the 1930 Stanislaus census. His brother Dr. William Thomas JEFFRYES was my great-great grandfather.

Fred was born 1865 in Illinois to Thomas William JEFFRYES and Eliza Jane HAMILTON. He moved to Iowa before the age of four and was living in Page County, IA in the 1900 census. In this census is listed as a photographer with his wife Clyde and daughter Isa. In 1910 they are living in Manitou, El Paso County, CO and still in El Paso County in 1912 according to his mother's obituary.

Here's where it gets interesting. In 1914, Mrs. Clyde JEFFRYES of Manitou, CO is credited with writing the lyrics to a published song called "Why Do I Love Thee." In 1920, Clyde and Isa are living in Wichita, Sedgwick County, KS and Clyde is listed as a widow. But, in 1930 Fred shows up in Stanislaus County listed as a photographer with his wife Julia F. Fred's listed "age at first marriage" is 25 which is his age when he married Clyde.

In all of these census, Fred lists his father's birthplace as England which is correct.

I'd love to find out any info or to see any photos listed as being taken by Jeffryes of Modesto
