Happy Thanksgiving from the Ozarks

Leola McCune  was 14 years old when she received this Thanksgiving greeting from Blanche Myers. Leola was born in Kansas in 1901, but had moved to Missouri sometime between 1910 and 1920. Though the card is postmarked at Mountain Grove Missouri (Wright County), census records show that she lived in nearby Texas County. Leola married in 1942 and had no children. She died in 1996 in Mountain Grove.

Ancestry has an extensive public family tree that includes numerous picture of Leola. I've sent a message to the tree administrator offering to return the postcard to the family.

Wishing a happy and peaceful Thanksgiving to everyone!


  1. Lovely postcard! Happy Thanksgiving to you too!

  2. You are generous to offer to return this to the family through the ancestry tree administrator! There are many public trees of parts of our family, but I've never seen a photo. Glad you have them! Hope your Thanksgiving was terrific!
