Christmas Greetings from Vedia’s Postcards

Vedia Eggleston Jones’ Postcard Book contains several cards with Christmas Greetings, some sent exactly 100 years ago. It appears that Vedia was in Malad, Idaho for the holidays, probably attending school there.

  1. These are so wonderful!! I wonder if any are from cousins on my dads side??
    He is Arlo Eggleston his dad is William Jesse and Sina is his mom.

    • These are mostly between the children of Orson and Mariett. I do have a few other postcards, but they are between Annie Christine’s children, Joe, Theron and Mattie May. William Jesse was a son of Constance and I don’t have any from those siblings.
