What a great old vintage Christmas card I have hear. Holly frames it and we have a carriage and horses pulling the passengers through the snow.
This post card is probably from 1907 to 1914 . It is not postmarked or written on.

The colors are soft and show us a time about 85 years ago in Houston.
DH and I am now living in the Houston area for a few years. It is busy and crowded and nothing like this beautiful post card of course.
Post card is dated Jan 8 1925 Bellaire Texas and addressed to Mr. J W Foster of Clarita Oklahoma.
This postcard is from Mr Foster's son Albert.

Mound Cemetery in Marietta, Ohio is home to the Great Mound (aka Conus, Mound Cemetery Mound), built by the Mound Builders, and is reportedly home to the largest number of American Revolutionary War officers buried in one location. The Great Mound was preserved by the original pioneers and city founders of the Ohio Company of Associates. Many of the founders were officers of the Revolutionary War who received land grants for military services. Among the officers of the American Revolutionary War buried in Mound Cemetery are General Rufus Putnam, General Benjamin Tupper, Commodore Abraham Whipple, and Colonel William Stacy.
It was stated at the Conference that “more officers of the Revolution are buried in the Old Mound Cemetery, Marietta, than at any other place in the United States.”
— DAR, American Monthly, Vol. 16 (Jan-Jun 1900), 329.
General Lafayette of France, who fought with the Americans during the Revolution, visted Marietta during 1825, and described these Marietta settlers and former soldiers: "I knew them well. I saw them fighting the battles of their country…They were the bravest of the brave. Better men never lived."
