[Postmarked] Stockport, Ohio, Feb 22, 1909

[To] Miss Bessie McGiss [correction:  McGirr - see comments]
1067 Linden Ave.
Zanesville, Ohio

[From] Dorothy Johnson


  1. shows Dorothy - Windsor, Ohio is just outside (2 miles) of Stockport.

    Dorothy is of few words? :)

    I couldn't find Bessie. McGiss is such an unusual name too.

  2. Do you think it might be McGirr? To me, the second last letter looks like an 's' but the last one, more like an 'r.'

  3. Yes! McGirr!! :)

    Bessie May Mcgirr (birth: 09 Oct 1891 Stockport, Morgan, Ohio), daughter of John and Mary, married Herbert E. Parr on 25 Dec 1917. She died 15 Jun 1979 in Newark, Licking, Ohio.

    Her findagrave page: shows it was added by a Jani Parr, perhaps a relative?
