April 1910 Postcard
postmarked April 5, 1910
addressed to L. A. Newby in Denver
names of the men on front are ? Hollingsworth, John Long, and Quitman Long
Liddie was my grandmother's sister. Liddie would have been 15 years old in 1910. She was writing to her grandmother Lydia Newby (her father's mother). Lydia Newby was living in Denver, where her daughter Mattie Newby Burdick lived. From this postcard it appears that her son Tom Newby was also living in Denver in 1910.
John Long and Quitman Long were Uncles on her mother's side of the family. Since she was asking if Uncle Tom remembered who the men on the front of the card were, they must have been friends. We are not sure when the Newby family moved from Franklin County,Tn to the Walker County,Ga. area, maybe this will help.
