Hope this helps - let me know!

Marcus Pedir Kobe was born 5 June 1886 in either St. Joseph or Rice, Minnesota and died (I believe) on Oct 21, 1945 in Spokane, Washington. Worked as a construction superintendant. He was married to Clara Winifred Murphy, born July 4, 1985 in Montana. they had two children that I know of: Lucy Louise Kobe, Born Sept 1, 1916 in Spokane, Washington and Marcus Leo Kobe, born 9 May 1918 in Spokane, Washington, died on Oct 3, 1950 in Reading, Pennsylvania and buried Oct 9, 1950 in Spokane, Washington.

DEATH: Construction accident, giving his own life to save others. Article from Spokane, Washington in October 1956 "Marcus L. Kobe Gives Own Life".

Marcus had 2 brothers - Aloysius and Albert Michael, and one sister, Lucy Frances. Their father's name was Michael G. Kobe, and he was born on May 25, between 1859-1864 in Austria/Slovenia/Croatia (boundaries kept moving), he married Hadeece Lucy Hammes in 1882 in Minnesota and died on June 5, 1928 in Hettinger, North Dakota. I have more info on both of them if you want! My Dad's dad was Aloysius!

Profession: Worked for the same construction company as his father, Marcus. Construction superintendant - died on the job. See newspaper article on p. 105 in "Kobe Klan Kissin' Kouzins" book.
