You are looking at an identified postcard that was sent to ABIGAIL A. TURNER from MARGARET on May 8, 1912 to wish her a happy 29th birthday.

More on ABIGAIL A. TURNER (receiver of card):
ABIGAIL married FREDERICK FERNANDES(Z) on NOVEMBER 28, 1912 (she received the postcard about 6 months prior to her marriage) from a woman by the name of MARGARET whom I've not been able to identify.
As far as I can tell, ABIGAIL & FREDERICK stayed married atleast until 1942 because that's the last time I can find them in any records.
ABIGAIL & FREDERICK had one child (maybe more but I cannot find them in the 1930 census records ANYWHERE!) so for now I do know that they had one child they named FREDERICK FERNANDES(Z), JR., who married a woman by the name of JENNIE.
Up until 1942, ABIGAIL & FREDERICK live on DARTMOUTH ST., NEW BEDFORD, MASS., like I mentioned above I searched hi and low for those two in the 1930 census records and could not find them at all. My guess is that their names are really messed up and it will take a lot of looking to find them eventually...whenever I find a name that is messed up, I always send in a correction.
