[Postmarked] Jul 11, 1929, Jewett, OH

[To] Mr. Ralph Shambaugh
Jewett, Ohio
Route 1

Hello Buddy:
Took S. R. Everything O.K.  Signed my contract and sent it back this morning.  Do you want to go with us to Unionsport Sunday?  If you do we would be glad to have you.
So Long,


  1. Unionsport, OH is about 10 miles due east of Jewett.

    Ralph Marion Shambaugh (b. 06 Mar 1908 in Ohio d. 03 Dec 1991 in Harrison, Ohio)

    The 1930 US census shows him as an adopted son of John and Bertha Shambaugh. There is a William Chambaugh living nearby - but there isn't any proof at all that this is "Billy".

  2. Yes, unfortunately "Billy" didn't give us any clues as to his relationship with Ralph. Could be a friend or family member. Thanks for the info on Ralph!
