I have a photo of Jacob Haddox 1834-1899, taken by Daniel Bowers, Photographer, Payne, Ohio (on reverse of photo). Jacob Haddox located in Payne in 1881 and was a merchant and a proprietor of a hotel in Payne. He came back to his native state of Ohio from Cedar Rapids, Cedar Co., Iowa.

I would like to know the name of the hotel and/or his mercantile store and would love, love, love a photo of the building then or now if it still stands. I also would like to know how long he ran the hotel and who he was married to at the time as he had 3 wives. I need the death date of wife #2 Louisa A. Leiter, d/o Andrew and Susan Cook Leiter, and her children.

I have much to share on the Haddoxes. Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks, Lee
