Hi! I've decided to make a new feature called "Ten Days of Family" in which I share a photo from my family's history each day. Day one is brought to you by my Great Great Great Grandfather Clark Lockwood. He illustrated this post card and sent it to my Great Grandmother Lucille Zeigler some time in between 1896 and 1910 when McKinley was president of the United States. There is no date on this post card, just Mckinley's face on the stamp and the "POSTAGE ONE CENT" writing under. In fact, he didn't even have to address the post card.. it simply says Lou Zeigler (for Lucille) on the back of it. The family portrait below is my Great Great Great Grandfather Lockwood's family. He is the man with the beard in the photo.
Apparently the town was so small that it got to her safely without a problem.
I really love learning about my family history.. I am so fortunate that my mother has all of these old photos and post cards of our family from so long ago!
