Mary Rainwater
View both sides of postcard

This postcard was offered on eBay in November 2003. The inscription on the reverse reads, "Clara Yolinda, Mary Rainwater & Hester Tall Tree. They all work for the Kingsleys in the big house in Warren. Mary is holding King, the owner's prized spaniel. Aug. 2nd, 1909."

I have no other information about Mary Rainwater. There are towns named Warren in nearly every state. If you have any knowledge of a family named Kingsley that lived in Warren in 1909, and was wealthy enough to employ three servants, I would be interested in learning more.

This photo is now in the collection of Susan Chance-Rainwater & R. Steven Rainwater.
