Minor Photographs and Memories Surnames

Vintage Photo Postcards of Southwestern Pennsylvania — Wordless Wednesday —

This post is prompted by the ongoing series, Wordless Wednesday, at Geneabloggers.

From the sleeves of my grandfather’s postcard collection come these wonderful examples of early 20th century photo postcards.  These notes were sent to Donald C. Minor of Carmichaels, Pennsylvania by his sister, Helen Minor, (1910) and his cousin, Laura Stephenson (1909).  All these individuals were living in the southwest corner of Pennsylvania.  Donald lived with his parents and grandfather on the Ceylon Road farm outside of Carmichaels and Helen attended school in nearby Waynesburg, a town north and west of the farm’s rolling hills.  Cousin Laura Stephenson lived in Uniontown, a large town just a short distance to the east, across the Monongahela River.

I am a keeper of my family's lore, chasing after my ancestors' tales in south central New York, southwestern Pennsylvania and Southside Virginia. The stories and photographs that I share on this blog are my intellectual property. While I do my very best to provide well researched posts, I do not pretend to have reached genealogical proof standards. Therefore, much of this work is to generate conversation among interested parties. If you would like to share my work or my records, please contact me: dkaysdays (at) gmail (dot) com.
