  2. Okay, so this is the "Mrs. Peter Brooks" that Alma Lee addressed her postcard to. Aha! The plot thickens.

    I had also noticed that Clara was a Gordon when I looked it up the other day. I was hoping she would match my husband's Gordons--as some of the family moved from Ohio to Iowa to Minnesota back then--but looks like it isn't so.

    Perhaps, if anyone ever steps up to claim Clara's photograph, that person might have an idea of who Alma Lee was...
