I recently purchased a picture of a Russell "Casey" Jones. The picture was taken at J&D Studio, Shenandoah, IA. Written on the cardboard frame is Musician at K.7.N.7. (not sure on this, could be K.F.N.F. or K.S.N.S or even something else I don't know about), Shenandoah, Iowa. Picture is old...appears to be early 1900's. Any leads would be appreciated.

Smile Casey Jones

From what I was able to find, "Casey" Jones was a great Missouri fiddler and I believe the initials are KFNF which was a studio owned by a Henry Fields. From that you should be able to google and find further information. I hope this is of some help.

Just want to add that KFNF was a radio station owned by Henry Field (1871-1949) in Shenandoah, IA. The history of the station is pretty interesting. I believe that "Casey Jones died in 1967.

I can probably give you some information on Casey Jones, as he is my grandfather. What would you like to know? Also, I would love to have a copy of the picture you purchased.
