You are looking at an identified POST CARD that was sent to GRACE S. TIBBETTS from her grandmother. The POST CARD is in very nice shape and looks like it was taken care of, there are no major problems (see scans).

The POST CARD is addressed to MRS. KENDALL TIBBETTS, BERWICK, MAINE and from research I know that MRS. KENDALL TIBBETTS is actually GRACE MAY SCHULMAIER, born March 27, 1897, SOMERSWORTH, NEW HAMPSHIRE.

The postcard is id'd on the back as such "Hello Grace, coming over and have a game with us? Do I hear you say no. Wish many happy Christmases, with a lot of love. Grandmother"

The postmark on the postcard is partially covered with a stamp but I can see what looks like the word NORTH and I'm assuming because she can just stop by and visit her grandmother, they must live relatively close to each other. The location grandmother mailed the postcard from (I think) was NORTH BERWICK, MAINE (GRACE lived in BERWICK, ME).

The date is also obstructed by the stamp but we know that GRACE married JANUARY 1, 1920, so it places the post card in the 20's.





I've done a little research on this family and this is what I've been able to come up with.

GRACE SCHULMAIER. was born MARCH 27, 1897, SOMERSWORTH, NH, she married WALLACE KENDALL TIBBETTS on January 1, 1920 (New Hampshire, Marriage Records Index 1637-1947)

Graces parents were Henry R. Schulmaier, born August 19, 1867, GERMANY. and LILLIAN MABEL AKA MAYBELLE R. THOMPSON, born January 1874, MAINE.


GRACE had the following siblings:

ADLAI TALMAGE, born MARCH 1, 1893, ME.
**Married: LOTTA FOSS JOHNSON on 8/29/1919

ELIZABETH EMMA, born SEPT. 15, 1894, ME.
**Married: HENRY E. LEACH on 5/28/1921

NOTE: ELIZABETH may at one time gone by the name ELSIE.

STEPHANIE LEONA, born DEC. 19, 1898, MAINE
**Married: JOSEPH L. MURPHY on 3/26/1921

CLARINA M., born MARCH 13, 1902
**Married: CARROLL F. HERSEY on DEC. 26, 1921

HENRY R., born May 8, 1906, ME.
**Married: ALICE E. WENTWORTH on Dec 27, 1926, in DOVER, STRAFFORD, NEW HAMPSHIRE.



**NOTE: Henry emigrated to US in 1870 and was listed in the US NATURALIUZATION RECORD INDEX on June 27, 1889, court location is listed as BOSTON, MASS.




In 1930 KENDALL & GRACE are still living in YORK, BERWICK, MAINE and they do not have any children.


MORE ON W. KENDALL TIBBETTS

The W. stands for WALLACE and sometimes he went by Wallace and sometimes by KENDALL.

KENDALL'S parents were BYRON A. TIBBETTS, born January 1864, Maine to WILLIAM & ELIZABETH "LIZZIE" H. TIBBETTS & FRANCIS born January 1865, Maine. BYRON & FRANCIS were married 1888, ME.

WALLACE KENDALL TIBBETTS was living with his widowed grandfather WILLIAM TIBBETTS & his Aunt EMMA E. TIBBETTS according to the 1910 YORK, BERWICK, ME. census. KENDALL would be about 14 years old.

In 1910 YORK, BERWICK, ME. his father BYRON A., is still alive and I think remarried to a woman by the name of NELLIE L. BANFILL, born about 1875. I believe that KENDALLS mother was FRANCIS born 1865, NH. and I'm assuming she died because all the children except KENDALL are living with BYRON and his new wife NELLIE. NELLIE was apparently married before and she brought one daughter to this marriage and her name was DORIS DAYTON, born abt. 1898, MASS.

BYRON married his first wife FRANCIS GILMAN on MARCH 31, 1888, SOMERSWORTH, N.H., see (MAINE marriage records 1705-1922).


NOTE: Marriage Record of BYRON & NELLIE below (there is an original document on ancestry.com, I'd check familysearch.org too if you don't have a subscription).

NOTE: NELLIE BANFILL'S parents were CHARLES W. & OLIVE J. BANFILL, (see 1880 BERWICK, ME. census). Also note that you a may need to search using BAUFIL, it was mispelled.

KENDALL'S siblings were CHARLES, FAY C., NEWELL, WALLACE & (half siblings), JENA ESTELLA, RUBY & BYRON ASHTON, JR.

According to S.S. Death Index, KENDALL died June 30, 1972, YORK, BERWICK, ME. & GRACE died MAY 7, 1969, YORK, BERWICK, ME.


ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

I believe that GRACE'S maternal grandmother was ELIZABETH A. TEED THOMPSON and I do not know who her PATERNAL grandmother was. I'm guessing, from information HENRY supplied, that her father came to the us in 1870 (age 2) with his parents but I've not been successful finding them. My guess is that SCHULMAIER is spelled so many different ways it would take some time to track them down, however, his parents could (just could) have been GEORGE & JULIA SHULMEYER AKA SCHULMAIER, born in GERMANY and residing in PA. Obviously much more research would need to be done to draw that connection.

I'm relatively confident that this is LILLIAN'S parents:

Peter Thompson 46 (born New Brunswick, Canada)
Elizabeth A. Thompson 41 (born Maine)
Peter E. Thompson 20
William A. Thompson 14
Lillian M. Thompson 6
Frances E. Thompson 3

Both of ELIZABETH'S parents were born in NEW BRUNSWICK, CANADA (see 1880 MAINE census)

I'm not positive what grandmother sent her the Christmas postcard, however, I'm leaning toward Grandmother Elizabeth Thompson.

Grandmother Thompson was living in Calais, Washington Co., ME. in the 1920 census, she was only 77 years old at the time and a widow. I believe Peter died in 1899. An interesting note is that she has a grandson MARQUIS L. MacADAM living with her, he was born 1903, NY., he can be found later in life under MARK L. MACADAM aka MCADAM (sometimes mispelled to latter). I believe he married a woman by the name of DOROTHY C. and they lived in MASSACHUSETTS.

It appears that GRANDMOTHER THOMPSON she is deceased by the 1930 census.
