Volga City Baseball Team, undated photo
ca 1895 - early 1900's
This photo was discovered in my Mother's things. We had not seen before. It is a baseball or softball team picture. They have shirts on with Volga City on them and bats and gloves on the floor. I believe my grandfather, A.C. "Bert" Fobes (top row standing, 2nd from left), moved to Volga about 1895 from Ohio. He was a teacher and worked in the Post Office and I think a census enumerator. My grandmother lived in Volga with her parents J.W. & Rosetta Hold who ran the mill in Volga. Bert Fobes married Elsie Hold 23 June 1903 and began farming in Clayton County. I would love to know the year of the photo, and anything else anyone can tell me about it.
