  2. Interesting how life circles back around. These postcards are the same as the ones I receive as Christmas cards or as save-the-date (for a wedding) cards.

    The baby seems to know that he is being photographed. :)

  4. This one has me stymied. I have a feeling that baby Clayton might have died as an infant (and missed the 1910 US census). I tried Rist, Rust, Rast, Rost and Clay, Clayton, Sy, Syl, Sly, and Sylvester in most if not all the various combinations.

    Of Lula Crowder, I only have a theory - I found one in Roland, Bottineau County, North Dakota, the daughter of Horatio Crowder - who apparently married a Carl Nystrom (the spelling also varies all over the place) and moved to Minneapolis who seems to fit - but not knowing who/where Clayton Sylvester R*st was I can't verify anything.
