Photo Number 2457

This is a postcard from the antique shop in Pequot Lakes Minnesota.

Aloha 1930 Pequot Lakes

Aloha and Merry Christmas from Monte, Marvin, Ann and Veryl

Aloha 1930 Pequot Lakes back

Dear Agnes, Did you know that I was way over here? It is really an interesting and beautiful place to spend two years, better come see us?  Have been wanting to write a long letter al about it- but the semi –tropical atmosphere does the damage to one’s spirits that household duties seem about all I can manage.  Dad has an operation for appendicitis + gall bladder removed but reports are he is getting along fine.  Hope you are all well and very happy.  Lovingly Ann

The date at the very top of the card is 12 -6-30.

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Kind of makes me think someone was stationed there in the service?

  2. This might be the family: Clifford Veryl Morgan, born about 1902 in Nebraska. Anna Marie Morgan, born about 1903 in Missouri. Monte H. Morgan, born about 1928 in the District of Columbia, and Marvin L. Morgan, born about 1930 in Texas. On the 1930 U.S. census this family is living at Fort Bliss, El Paso, Texas. The father is an officer in the Marine Corps. Also living with the family is a sister of Veryl named Ivy P. McCrory. By the time of the 1940 census the family is living in the District of Columbia and have another son named Walter. Clifford Veryl Morgan is buried at Arlington National Cemetery. http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=49268389

  3. Here is the obituary of the first son (Monte) shown in the photo: http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/washingtonpost/obituary.aspx?pid=173627968

    The wedding registry of Monte's grandson Clifford and his wife Emily can be found here: https://registry.theknot.com/emily-hathaway-clifford-morgan-october-2014-md/6356685

    One of the two comments left in the guestbook comes from Sharon & Ralph Thaman, whose contact details can be found here: https://nuwber.com/person/563aa7d4a219445d52eec195

    Perhaps by contacting the Thaman family, it may be possible to obtain contact information for Monte's grandson and his wife. Good luck and happy hunting!
