Orphan Photo #47


Orphan 015-B

This real photo postcard was originally featured on my other blog, GenBlog.

Addressee:  Miss Gertrude Bontz, Glasford, Illinois

Postmark:  Hanna City, Illinois, 19 September 1910

The message reads:

Thomas Walter Gibbons at the age of 6 months.

There is no other identifying information.

It is quite possible that this is the Thomas W Gibbons found in Logan, Peoria, Illinois in the 1920 census.  If it’s him, I believe I found an SSDI listing for him as well.  Additional research is needed to determine if this it the correct person and if so, if there are any living relatives to pass this photo on to.





I found your site through Forgotten Old Photos, and for a half a second I thought this was one of my husband's uncles. After looking at our tree, I see we don't have a Thomas Walter, alas. I hope the family does turn up.
