Ashland County Ohio pictures raby richards eichelberger


This postcard was purchased on ebay and was listed by a seller in British Columbia, Canada.   The card is signed with only the initials "M R".   It was sent to "Mrs Jane Eichelberger, Magnetic Springs, Park Hotel".   The postmark is dated 1[?] Nov[ember] [19]14.   Below is a view of the postcard back.   The note states: "Ashland O - Hello Janey. how are you better I hope.   I am sending you the old house where I was born.   next tuesday 17 allready so soon look out for mail man.   I will come again this week"

[Notation - Based on M.R.'s remark: "the old house where I was born. next Tuesday 17 all ready" and the cancellation date of Nov 1(?) [19]14 a check of the 1897 Ashland County birth records was made. There were no males with the initials M.R. born in November of 1897, but there were two females: Mable Raby, born 24 Nov 1897, Loudonville and Martha Richards, born 26 Nov 1897, Ashland. The hunt is on!]

Note - Carol, CJADLD [at] aol [dot] com, has Raby connections. Through her research she does not believe this to be the birth place of Mable Raby. Contact her for further information. [Sept 2006]
