Photo Number 813

This is a Postcard from  the Antique Mall in Detroit Lakes Minnesota.
Postcard Ruth and Volney Olson DL Antiques
Postcard Ruth and Volney Olson DL Antiques back
Ruth and Volney Olson are the most likely names of these two children.   The postcard was meant for Mr. and Mrs. C S. Denning.

The Kruxo postcards with the name down the center of the card are from 1911 to 1922.  I almost didn’t purchase this card because Olson is such a common name..but Volney..I wonder how common that name is?

Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)

Updates:
From Crex: 
The 1930 Census that lists

  5. Volney and Margaret had five children (two boys and three girls) born across the years of 1941 and 1952) so it is likely some them are still living.

    I'll see if I can find an address or three.

    2. Frustration doesn't begin to describe it. The last bunch of searches I've attempted have all run against brick walls. Time to take a breather!

  6. Wonder what kind of nickname you give someone named Volney. I have never heard than name before.
