As the inside lists both my grandparent's names, I know that this card was pre-1955 as my grandfather died in June of 1955.
My grandmother bought her cards (and mine too when I was a teenager) from a lady who she described as a "cousin or something of my grandfather". I have figured out who that was and discovered they lived in East Bridgewater, MA which is the next town over from where we just moved away from. Margaret Alexander, the cemetery caretaker and a friend who knows her genealogy stuff helped me locate the gravestones there. That's a story for another day. Margaret even showed me where they lived.
I did not send out cards this year as we sent out change of address cards just prior to moving. However, this card shown here and some others were discovered by the movers we hired. I think it is a Christmas miracle. I thought they were lost.
