MAPPY MONDAY


POSTCARD TO LIZZIE EWING

Lizzie Ewing was the daughter of Aaron and Mary Ann Richael. I have another postcard addressed to Lizzie around the same time period, dated 1906. In both the 1900 and 1910 census, she was living in Bruin, Butler county Pennsylvania. First with her mother and siblings, and 1910 with brother Thomas. During the period of 1906, she was in Pittsburgh. Perhaps in school. She would have been about twenty-six years of age. Christy Anna Ewing was her sister and married Abner Snow. I have yet to find Lizzie in the 1930 census.

What is interesting is, the postcard appears to be from Elmer Snow, Christy and Abner’s son. This was not a romance, as far as I can tell. He married someone else. Maybe just a note to a dear sister-in-law while he was away working.

Most my family was either in Mercer, Butler , Lawrence or Venango counties in the 1800-1900’s. Some of the Aaron Ewing family went west for a while to work.
