52 Ancestors #4 - Herbert Cain Weddle

I'm participating in Amy Johnson Crow's challenge for geneabloggers called  "Challenge: 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks".  Amy challenges genealogists to write about one ancestor once a week.  .  #52Ancestors



Herbert Cain Weddle was born in Waterloo, Pulaski, Kentucky, USA on the 6th of October 1887.  He was the son of Abraham Lincoln Weddle and his wife, Emily Elizabeth Cain.  Herbert was the oldest of five children and the only son.
This is a family photo taken about 1903.  Abraham Lincoln, Nancy Helen, Herbert Cain, Lida Ellen,  Minnie Pauline, and Emily Elizabeth Cain Weddle.  Minnie Pauline was born in 1901 and she looks to be at least two years old - maybe three.

Herbert married Verda Mae Strunk on Nov 13, 1911.  Date is found in a transcription of Abraham Lincoln Weddle's Family Bible available at: has Herbert's WWI Draft Registration card filed on June 5, 1917.  He and Verda and Ruth lived in Rim, Bell, Kentucky USA, and he was a Physician for the Indian Creek Coal Company.  Rim doesn't seem to be a locatable community today.  Indian Creek Coal is listed on as being located at Fourmile, Bell County, Kentucky.

Herbert died August 21, 1926
His death certificate lists Dysentery and Collapse as the cause of death.
