Happy Thanksgiving from the Ozarks
Leola McCune was 14 years old when she received this Thanksgiving greeting from Blanche Myers. Leola was born in Kansas in 1901, but had moved to Missouri sometime between 1910 and 1920. Though the card is postmarked at Mountain Grove Missouri (Wright County), census records show that she lived in nearby Texas County. Leola married in 1942 and had no children. She died in 1996 in Mountain Grove.
Ancestry has an extensive public family tree that includes numerous picture of Leola. I've sent a message to the tree administrator offering to return the postcard to the family.
Wishing a happy and peaceful Thanksgiving to everyone!
