Dear readers,

We need your help. 90% of our expenses are covered by donations averaging $10, though not many visitors contribute. If each visitor reading this right now gave $2, we would have enough to operate DeadFred for a year. That's right, the price of a bottle of soda would do it. If DeadFred is helpful to you, please take a moment to help us. We are a very small group of volunteers serving thousands of readers daily with very little outside support. DeadFred is a place to share and discover the faces of your ancestors. The funds we receive go toward maintaining and improving your chances of discovery. Please help us so we can continue to help you.

Thank you,
Joe Bott

Comments: CHARLES ALTON PENNINGTON (Nee: ) | IN USA | 1901-1920 | Comments: Very nice WWI real photo postcard of a servicemen from Camp Zachary Taylor, Louisville KY. Sent to Mrs Geo. Briggs, Muncie Indiana. After further research, I was able to determine the photo is that of Charles Alton Pennington from Indiana. His sister was "Lillian Pennington" who married George Briggs of Muncie. The address of "429 East Charles" was confirmed as the Briggs residence as of the 1920 census. Charles A. Pennington was born 8.22.1886 and died 10.5.1952. He had married Anna Rachel Rodgers. I believe he was a "bugler" while serving in WWI. The correspondence reads: "11/20 - 17, Dear brother + sister - This is the picture I promised to send. Does it look like me? This leaves me all OK. From your loving brother Chas." It was very common during this time to refer to your brother-in-law as "brother." Postmarked Nov 23, 1917, Louisville KY (Camp Zachary Taylor).
