Joseph Marks Treatment Doesn't Work

My great grandfather - Joseph Marks, died 91 years ago on Sunday  (December 26, 1919) of gastric issues.  Apparently the remedy that he promoted in the advertisement below didn't work.


  1. Kenneth... I have chosen your blog to receive the Ancestor Approved award. Please visit my secondary blog,, to pick it up. :-D Lisa

  2. Joseph must have used this AKOZ product, and it must have given him some relief, or he wouldn't have given them his picture and the quoted letter to use in this advertisement. Since there is no date on the ad, how long did Joseph live after the ad appeared?
