Early Oregon ~ Postcards to Litha:

These Oregon Pioneers, John and Sarah Letsom, are my great-great grandparents:

They had a daughter named Talitha.  In 1909, my great-grandmother Talitha (or Litha, for short) received these postcards in the mail:

Love this! I have some of those postcards fact I think I have some that Ben sent to Talitha while he was courting her. Soooo romantic! That was all pre-Facebook of course.

Thanks! Did Nanny give you a picture frame with four of them? That is where these came from. I'd love to see yours. LOL, pre-FB ... how did we live?

I love that you have a "trail" of postcards through the years! The one of the lighthouse is beautiful. I wonder why it was called Cape Disappointment. You could weave many stories around that. :)

Hi Sheila,

Oh, thank you! I'm not sure why it is called that, but I'll find out and put a link on here to Cape Disappointment. Great idea. I appreciate you stopping by to say hi!

God bless,
