The Overland Limited Going East

Location Unknown


Written to Mr. R. A. PARKER of Paris, Lamar County, Texas, this card starts out "Dear Grampa," but closes "Your Nephew." You figure that one out! It's signed only "Johnson," and thus I do not know if this was the young man's first or last name...presumably his first.

In case "Grampa" was as confused as I am, young Johnson thoughtfully  included his photograph pasted to the front of the postcard.

It was postmarked in Murrayville, Illinois on April 30, 1910 April 11, 1938,   and bears a 1 cent stamp. 

Had this PARKER family migrated from Illinois to Texas, or from Texas to Illinois?
