The above photo is of John Poe Hobaugh with his second wife, Molley [Molly].  His first wife was Mary Ann Patterson.  The back of this photo identifies the two children as Ethel Hobaugh and Clarence Hobaugh.   John Poe Hobaugh was killed by this team of  horses in an accident in 1912 near the community of Little Vine, Missouri.  His son, Eli Hobaugh, fetched home the body of his father for the funeral.  Before his death, John Hobaugh changed his name to Hobeck.  Eli Hobaugh married Jessie Forchee, daughter of Rebecca (Hildebrand) Forchee & Joseph Forchee.  Rebecca was daughter of Samuel "Sam" Hildebrand and Margaret "Hampton" Hildebrand, therefore, Jessie, wife of Eli Hobaugh, was a granddaughter of the notorious Samuel Hildebrand.
