John Edward King
1837-1921

JOHN E. KING with a dog that he allegedly used in a circus act. This is the family story, and I don't know if it is true or not. But it's still a great picture.

Born July 24, 1837 in Ireland; died July 25, 1921, in Whitwell, Marion Co., TN. Occupation: MINER.

Photo was taken about 1900.
