Happy Thanksgiving! Here’s a charmer from publisher Raphael Tuck & Sons, a turkey couple out for a drive in 1907.
Mailed to: “Miss Grace Snyder. Stevensville, Sull. Co., N. Y.” That’s Sullivan County. Stevensville later became Swan Lake.
The sender wrote: “We are all well and hope this finds you all the same. I wish you and your mamma a happy Thanksgiving – With love from Anna Budd. will write soon.”
Grace Snyder, born about 1892, was the daughter of Nelson H. Snyder and Evelyn Racine. On December 4, 1911 Grace married William Hathaway, born about 1887, son of Eli Hathaway and Lettie Van Orden. Bride and groom were both living in Stevensville, NY at the time of marriage.
Anna is Anna H. Budd, born January 1893, daughter of Morris D. and Carrie E. Blackmon. The 1900 census shows Anna, her parents, her old brother John (all born in New York) and her younger sister Florida, who was born in……..Florida (awww!)
