Postcard Priscilla Charlott Giswold DL Antiques back
To Grandma from Priscilla Charlott Griswold edited to  Gisvold 3 months old

This is a Cyko postcard so it could be from the years 1904 to the 1920’s.

Thanks for stopping by.  Do come again:)

Update from grandmavickiann!
Priscilla Charlotte Gisvold was born on August 1 1912 to Martin and Pauline Gisvold.  Nine years later a brother named Paul enters the family.  Priscilla died July 27 1998. 

Apparently Priscilla never married and lived in the Hennepin County area of Minnesota all her life.

Update from Iggy:
According to the 1940 US census, Priscilla Gisvold was single, 27 years old, and worked 48 hours a week as a saleslady at a retail department store in Minneapolis. Her father is shown as a Chiropractor. Her brother Paul (who may still be living at the age of 91 with his wife Dorothy in Minneapolis) is shown as 18 years old.

    I could not find a birth record, but if he is the Paul Matthew Gisvold born on March 21, 1921, the above is accurate.

    According to US Dept of VA BIRLS Death File, he served in the Army from Sept 9, 1942 to Dec 7, 1945, and is buried at Fort Snelling National Cemetery.
