I came across Margaret Elizabeth Bond's death date, tonight. Margaret is the wife of Jacob Lewis Mansker. I was reading through Jake's military file on Fold3.com, and came across Ed Mansker's request to be reimbursed for Margaret's funeral expenses. It gives her death date as 22 Jan 1921. Her grave marker gives her death year as 1920, however, this is clearly in error.

Hmmm Don't remember this one. Rose gave me her old photos. This one must have been one she missed. Anyway I have the others.

I had all of these postcards deciphered and have copies on my computer

A postcard addressed to Hattie in 1910. Hattie had a collection of 300+ post cards, which will be posted online, soon.
