An invitation from her friend Viola to "come and take Xmas with us" was included in the message to my grandmother, Miss Nora Inman, in Llano, Texas. Viola also states, "I went to church yesterday and had a nice time. [can't read the name] and Virgia started school today."

This card was sent by Emett Handy on Nov 19, 1908 from Pilot Point which is in Denton County, Texas. I do not know how he and my grandmother knew each other, but found on the 1910 Lampasas County, Texas census, the families of William H. and Jefferson D. Handy near her and her husband, Frank Conley on Hamilton Road.
The postmark looks like TIOCA, Nov 24. The rest is too faded to read, but the last number of the year is an 8. It was addressed to my grandmother in Llano, Texas and signed "guess who". Other postcards to her from Emett E. Handy from TIOGA, Texas solved that mystery. In 2008 I contacted one of Emett's descendents through Ancestry and sent images of the postcards, but neither of us knows what their relationship might have been.
|My grandmother's sister, Earl Ophelia Inman Myers, sent this one to my grandmother some time after my grandmother's marriage to John Franklin Conley on 23 December 1908. The top part of the postmark shows Llano [Texas] and the one cent stamp is still attached.|
|This was to my mother from her "granmama". Unfortunately I do not know which one. There is no date, but it was after 1911.|
