This old Yohey family calling card was found at the intersection of Michiana, Niles, Berrien County, Michigan, and South Bend, Saint Joseph County, Indiana. This beautiful card will be sent in a new clean archival rigid sleeve for your collection.

These Victorian era cards were used to "call" and announce your Victorian "calling" at homes of friends, acquaintances, family members and business contacts. Generally the home had a tray or "Charger," which was a large vessel, often silver, to hold the beautiful cards.

Her nickname was Claudie, as seen engraved on her gravestone. This was Claudie's own personal card and features a beautifully colored lithographic flower scene, with iconic Victorian hand graphics. This surname is also seen spelled as Yohe and Yohie. This family is buried at Union Cemetery, Eaton, Delaware County, Indiana
