On reverse the card is addressed to: Mrs. R.D. Cline, Eagleport, Ohio, Morgan County, and is handwritten in old dip pen ink. Photo Type: RPPC Real Photo Postcard. Postmarked: Oct. 22, 1913, from Amesville, Ohio, Athens County.
Postcard has handwritten on reverse: "Oct. 1913, Wednesday. Dear Sister, I guess we cant go to the falls fri. Ben is sick is threatened with typhoid fever. I was over last night to see him and I am on my way over there now: will send your hat tomorrow or next day. Katie. Lots of love to all." This was found in Genesee County NY.
Found in Public Records:
Robert Dalton Cline 1869-1951, wife Edith (Davis?) in the 1910 census for Morgan County, Ohio. Son, Robert, 2. They later had a daughter Florence Cline born 1912 (married Mr. Fracker?) and moved to Muskingum County OH. Katie in photo could possibly be a sister or a sister in law.
Amesville, Ohio was quite a small town in 1910. We found a Ben Ellis, 63. living next door to Catherine Henry. He died in 1920 in Ames OH. Catherine (Parks?) 1836-1921, was married to George Henry and they had one son, Almon Henry. born 1868. Robert's wife Edith, was born (we believe) in 1885-1887 and died in 1975. If Katie sent the card to Edith, we think this was her family. Almon never married.
NOTE: Kate, Katie may be a nickname for Katherine, Kathleen. Lets hope dear Ben recovered from typhoid fever!
Size: 3.5 by 5.5 inches
Note: Hello from ~debra. I have spent years collecting over 10,000 ID’d lost family photos & paper from US flea markets & antique shops. I do the best gen research I can, but am always open to corrections. This is an original antique item, not a reprint. A new high quality rigid sleeve is included for extra protection, especially during shipping. You may buy a piece alone, or large intimate 300 dpi scans of the front and back sent immediately via email, or both. Please search carefully, as they are often found together and many may be related. I also invite you to join me at Ancestorville Genealogy on facebook. Thank you, enjoy! ~Debra Clifford (contact info on top bar)
