Note: We also found information on the addressee S.F. Williams:
Vermont Phoenix Newspsper from Brattleboro, Vermont on April 15, 1910: "Mrs. S.F. Williams Is visiting her daughter, Mrs. Fred B. Pier, In Brattleboro." Fred was also listed as a postmaster and farmer. He married Helen Arvilla Williams in 1867. His father was a minister named Orris Pier. (twin of Orrin Pier) The addressee is Sarah F. Williams, mother of Helen Arvilla Williams, maiden name Sarah F. Barrus Williams. Her father was Charles R. Williams, son of Savannah Williams of New Hampshire, born in 1800. We do not know the relation of these Williams folks to Harold and Hattie Williams.

Note: Hattie may be a nickname for Harriet Williams, Harriett Williams.

A wonderful one of a kind Williams family piece, and a rare old Vermont RPPC card. They would have hired a local or traveling photographer to take the photo to proudly advertise their US post office and Winhall VT general store. This is a New Years Greeting for the year 1912. Found in Danvers, Essex County, Massachusetts.
