Divided back, unused with writing, Real Photo Postcard. AZO stamp box. Circa 1907 – 1910.

Availability Status:  SOLD

Written in pencil on the back of this Real Photo Postcard is:   Gokee Farm, Petoskey Mich.”   Actually, it looks more like Gekee, but records were not showing under this spelling. The postcard obviously is showing quite a bit of land, along with some farm buildings and some gorgeous horses and colts, so is possibly the land in neighboring Bear Creek Township that was owned by John B. Gokee, as verified on the 1900 Federal Census. This one was found at an antique fair in Watsonville, California.

Update:  See the comment below from descendant, Sam Gokee.

  1. This is my Great Grand Fathers property on Gokee Rd in Emmet Co. Michigan, it makes sense that this post card was found in California as he had two sons that lived there.
