I may be "barking up the wrong tree" here...LOL, but you may be able to help me. I recently received some very old Christmas postcards from a friend as a gift. I have a total of 6 of them. This friend purchased these cards in an antique shop, and she knows how much I love genealogy and family histories, so when she sent me my Christmas card in the mail this year, she enclosed these 6 old postcards as a gift. I LOVED getting them, but at the same time, I realize that someone who is actually a family member to these people would appreciate them even more than I do. So, I am making an effort to locate someone who might like to have these cards.

Two of the cards are addressed to a Mr. and Mrs. Shull Burrier of Harlem Springs, Ohio. They both are stamped with the date December 20, 1910 and they both have a one cent stamp on them.

There is a small bit of writing on each postcard that might help you to determine if this came from or was sent to someone in your family history.

One card says "With sincere congratulations and best wishes for the merriest of Christmas tides and a very happy New Year and a long and useful life. Your friend, G. W. Huddleston" And, the person sending it has written the date of 11-20-10 at the bottom.

The other card says "Have never had a scratch from you since you was up. Lillie was at Carlton(?) yesterday P.M. and Oh, the crowd! Jessie Hamlin came home last night. Come up and see us. Blanche is married." And, this one is signed "Alice Box 322".

I am replying to this particular email because you list some "Burrier" children here and one is named Alice and one Blanche, so I am wondering if the Alice who wrote that 2nd postcard and mentioned a "Blanche" may have been the same Alice you mentioned and she may have been talking about her sister Blanche.

If anyone reading this can prove to me that these cards may have been written by their direct ancestors or family members, I would be glad to snail mail them to you.
