A cropped postcard postmarked as “Neshannock Falls PA, Sep 30, 9AM, 1908.” It was sent to Miss Mary Blevins at R.F.D. #1 in Volant. The inscription reads, “Hello Aunt Mary! Would this weather freeze your nose? I have been wondering whether this was Oct. or Dec. I had a card from Uncle Rob to-day. Isn’t that sad about Don Lusk? Uncle R.K. told me about it on the card.” I’m trying to figure out what happened to Don Lusk. I did find a mention that the 69-acre Samuel Lusk farm near Volant was sold at auction in late November 1908. Perhaps that’s what the card refers to? (1908) Full Size
