My Dear Sister,

Why don't you write?  I have wrote three times since we have heard from you.  Now please write right away I am anxious to hear from you.  I'm afraid you might be sick.  With love from your sister, [????]a  Richards

  1. Gosh, I wonder if this postcard ever caught up with Mrs. R. T. Maloney!

    In the 1910 US Census, I found Robert T Maloney living in Mace, Shoshone, Idaho. He was born abt. 1863 in Canada, immigrated 1875, and married Mary E. Maloney (b. Oct. 10, 1859 in Oklahoma (which wasn't a state yet)).

    In 1920 and 1930 they were in Webb, Jasper, Missouri.

    The 1920 and 1930 US Census shows they had a daughter Ruth May Maloney (b. abt.1909 in Missouri) but she doesn't appear in the 1910 census.

    Mary E.'s FindAGrave Memorial ( indicates her maiden name was Mofford.

    I think the sister was Emma Richards ( but am unable to confirm this.
