Dr. Dubois is one of the well and favorably known physicians not only of Boise but also of the entire state of Idaho. He is a native of Springfield, Illinois, where he was born November 16. 1848, and is of French descent. His grandfather, Dubois, came to America from France and was chief of the staff of General William Henry Harrison. Jesse Dubois, the father of our subject, was born in Illinois when that state was a territory. He married Miss Adelia Morris, of Kentucky ancestry. He was a prominent lawyer and a stanch Republican, having been a neighbor, friend and colaborer of Abraham Lincoln and other well known public men of that time. He served for a number of years as state auditor of Illinois. Mr. Dubois departed this life in 1876, at the age of sixty-six years, his wife surviving him ten years. To them were born three sons and one daughter, one of the former being ex-United States Senator Dubois.

Jesse K. Dubois attended the public schools and later entered Yale College, at which he was graduated in 1872. He then attended the medical college at St. Louis and was graduated with the class of 1875, after which he practiced his profession in Springfield for five years, and then came to Idaho as the physician of the Indian agency at Fort Hall. In 1883 he moved to Boise, where he has since followed his profession most successfully, building up a large and remunerative practice.

In 1884 Dr. Dubois was united in marriage to Miss Anna Curtis, a daughter of Hon. E. J. Curtis, one of Idaho’s most prominent citizens whose biography appears in another portion of this work. Of this union one daughter, Susie, has been born.

In his social relations Dr. Dubois is a member of the Masonic fraternity and was a Master Mason in the lodge of which his father was a charter member. He enjoys the high esteem of a wide circle of friends.
