Joe Dawson's Brother Albert #2

Joe Dawson had three siblings - his older brother Charles, younger brother Albert and the baby of the family, sister Reign who was born in the 20th Century. Albert Martin Dawson was born December 18, 1895 in Chicago. In the Dawson family's greatest tragedy Albert lost his life in World War I near Chateau Thierry, France on August 1, 1918. According to Larry Snyder (Charles' grandson) who provided this image and information, a Lieutenant Horine was with Albert when he was hit by a machine gun round. He died the next day.
In this 1913 image Albert is pictured in what appears to be a photograph associated with his education at Manual High School. Check out a 1917 image of Albert with his brother Charles.
