An archive of pre-1930 vintage greeting postcard art and correspondence
The postmark is for the Merriam Park branch of the St. Paul, MN post office.Rose LaCombe was born in Garnes, Red Lake, Minnesota on 20 Oct 1889 to Alphonse LaCombe and Marie Morinville.Rose married James Maurice Kearney. She passed away on Sep 1974 in Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada. I suspect J. M. was her future hubby. :)
Ah, a Nanaimo connection! I happened to find this card in Nanaimo. It sounds as if Rose's parents were of French descent, perhaps French-Canadian. In Alberta there are two towns, Morinville and Lacombe; both were first settled by Francophone missionaries.
