Isaac Jaques — a photograph guessing game

Isaac Jaques

Isaac Jaques

The reverse of this photo has “Isaac Jaques” written on the back, but unfortunately it is not dated. Could this be my third great grandfather Isaac Jaques (1791-1880)? I don’t think so, but I’m not absolutely sure.

Over the last year, I’ve discovered other “Isaac Jaques” in the family tree: one a son of the aforementioned Isaac, one a grandson, and one a great grandson (see accompanying tree image). Could this be a photo of one of them?

CORRECTION: Walter Jaques was married to Catherine Nichols.

Could this be Isaac Sr’s son Isaac (born between 1820-1825)? There is somewhat of a resemblance to his sister (my second great grandmother) Wealthy Ann–around the eyes, maybe.

If it’s from the 1870s, the image seems like it could be that of Isaac Wellington Jaques (1851-1909), a pharmacist* who had a store at 854 Elizabeth Ave, Elizabeth, NJ, in the late 1890s. I think it is safe to rule out Isaac Jaques (b. 1872). N’est-ce pas?

If you have any thoughts on this topic, please don’t hesitate to share. I would love to solve this little family mystery. Thanks for reading, and have a great week.

*The Druggists’ Circular and Chemical Gazette, October 1898, Volume 43: p. cv; also, a brief obituary in The Pharmaceutical Era, issued January 7, 1909, stated: Isaac Wellington Jaques, aged fifty-nine, died recently at his home in Elizabeth, N. J. He had been engaged in the drug business in Newark, Trenton and Elizabeth. A second wife [Mary F. Randolph], whom he married three years ago, and a daughter survive him. He belonged to several organizations, including the Masons and Elks.

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel is essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
