lawmen? 1

This vintage real photo postcard features two lawmen posing in front of a house or office building. Both men are wearing badges which likely indicates they represent some form of law enforcement. An inscription on the reverse of the card identifies the men as Josiah and Joel “Cade”. I am unsure that I deciphered their last name correctly. The men are nephews of the inscriber. Not quite the Earp brothers, but this is a nice portrait of two brothers serving as serving in small town law enforcement. The AZO stamp box on the reverse of this postcard, indicates that the card was produced sometime between 1904 and 1918. The postcard is in good condition (see scans).

ADDENDUM: A viewer of this postcard offered additional information concerning the men in this image. His genealogical research revealed that the subjects are Josiah Eade Jr (1887-1911) and his brother, Joel Eade (1891-1963). They were born in Republic, Michigan.  This photograph has to have been taken before 1911.

  1. I read the last name as “Eaole” possibly.

    • Thanks for the suggestion. You may be correct about the spelling, but I couldn’t find the men under that spelling when i investigated genealogically. The mystery continues.

  2. Another possibility for the surname is “Eade.”

    • Thanks for the suggestion of “Eade” as the men’s last name. I could not find them under that name but you still may be correct.
