Thanks again, I am glad you mentioned you were not kin to this family because my news is not complimentary. It appears that Chris McGuire mailed his sister, Maud, a picture postcard in October 1906 from Mobile, AL of a lynching that had occurred there. I am actually researching the lynching but this information is very important as well. I haven't yet learned the names of the persons lynched. There were two and the lynching took place in Sept. 1906, notes Chris. If you would be interested in pictures of this item, please just e-mail me directly at Joy@JustaJoy.com I will be glad to e-mail pics.

This item will most likely end up in a museum. Your info adds a lot.
Joy
