I wonder what happened?  Was she born with just one arm?
Postcard Elvera and Clayton Felton DL Antiques back
The children are Clayton Felton and Elvera Felton .  The photo was taken In Mishawaka Ind. by C. F. Kaylor  and was sent to Miss Katie Shuber So. Bend RFD 6 Ind. Box 66

This is an AZO postcard  that we can date from 1904 to 1918.

Thanks for stopping by.  Do come again:)

Update from Iggy:
The 1910 US census shows Clayton E Felton (age 8) living with his parents George A and Emma in Madison, St. Joseph county, Indiana along with sister "Alvera" (age 4).
Clayton is listed as a school teacher and later principal in South Bend, Indiana.
He married M. Mae, and is buried  next to his parents.

Sister Elvera (30 Apr 1905 - 10 Dec 2001), married a George Marker and they are buried in nearby Woodland, St. Joseph County, Indiana. 

The 1940 US Census shows they had a daughter named Jennifer (b. circa 1932)


Elvera's daughter, Jennifer Marker, married Milton E. Shaul (2 Oct 1924 - 13 Mar 1990) and had a family that is still living in South Bend area.

  1. I think the boy might be the same as the one in the previous photo (1204).

  5. P.s., Katie Stuber (Catherine L. Stuber) was a neighbor circa 1910 in Madison, St. Joseph County. She was born 1893 and married Harry J Witwer on Feb 17 1912. Katie died in March 1977 in Mishawaka, St Joseph County.

    I've not a clue as to how this photo ended up in Minnesota. None of the Witwer's seem to have ever lived there.

  6. The arm: that was the first thing I noticed, too. Wonder if we'll ever find out...this does look like Full Circle material...

  7. This is my great grandmother, I lived with her for awhile. I did keep some of her belongings when she passed. She has two arms, she may of had a slims on under the dress from an injury. She and her husband George lived in South Bend and Florida.
