My Great-Great Uncle George R. Garnand in Front of His Smithsburg, Maryland, Farm, Real Photo Post Card, 1916

Written on the reverse: "“The house of G.R. Garnand Smithsburg 1916 Md."

 

My Indiana cousin just sent me this picture and I am thrilled. This is the farm of my Great-Great Uncle George R. Garnand, son of Daniel Uriah Garnand and Catherine Dutrow. This was in the possession of the Ira Shively, of whom my cousin writes, "My great grandfather, Ira Carl Shively traveled a lot with his wife, in fact they visited all 48 (at the time) states. They bought a lot of postcards just for a picture of where they had been. They stopped frequently at Aunt, Uncle and Cousins homes and 'camped' before moving on. Carl had inherited a lot of money and it is said he never worked a day in his life!"
