On verso: "This photograph was taken on September 7th, 1899, the last meeting of the five brothers, being the occasion of the stock-holders' meeting of Jacoby Bros., at Jerseyville, Ill. Brother P. W. Jacoby died on Dec. 23d, 1899, aged 48 years, 11 months and 19 days; We miss thee from our homes, dear brother, We miss thee from thy place, A shadow o'er our life is cast,- We miss thy sun-lit face, We miss thy kind and willing hands, Thy fond and earnest care; Our homes are dark without thee, brother, We miss thee everywhere. The Angels' care is well bestowed To worthy sons of God, Tho' 'twas forbid that we might see Where our dear brother trod. Be this God's plan. We know so true, In God's eternal Dome, Our brother's safe, and waiting there To welcome us all home."
