Rummaging Through the Archives
This week of rummaging we bring the archives, Vol. IV (not included in the OkieLegacy Ezine database). We found these three scanned images of postcards around the Fort Supply, Oklahoma area.
These Old Fort Supply, Oklahoma penny postcards date back to around 1908. They were mailed to my grandmother from T. Lowe (an alleged a cousin of Constance Warwick).
Mr. Lowe was supposedly a residence of Old Fort Supply, Oklahoma back in 1908 when he wrote, sent these postcards to my grandmother Constance Warwick, while she was single, rural teacher, living in Alva and teaching at one-room school houses in Old M (Woods) county, in Oklahoma Territory.
The middle postcard shows a picture of the Old Man Custer building. Its was one of the old buildings located down at the Fort (Fort Supply). Here is the backside of the penny postcards.
The last postcard shows a picture of Flora & William Martindale, a couple who resided about 4 miles north of town during 1908. Flora was an English woman, according to the information written on the backside of the postcard by T. Lowe, Feb., 1908 to my grandmother, Miss Connie Warwick, in Alva, Oklahoma. If you have any information concerning Flora & William Martindale, do not be shy, leave a comment below or send NW Okie an email with your information.
