Card given by Teacher May Norton to Mertie Ludwick

Charming vintage card given by teacher May Norton to her student Mertie Ludwick.

Searching online, I found several possibilities for a Mertie Ludwick.  My hope is that a reader will be able to tie teacher May Norton and Mertie Ludwick together.

There was a Myrtle Ludwick who was born 4 September 1885 in Portage County, Ohio, the daughter of John Henry and Mary Delilah (Cope) Ludwick.    Her paternal grandparents were George W. and Margaret (Reader) Ludwick.  Her maternal grandparents were Jacob and Mary (Mapels) Cope. Myrtle married Charles P. Kasserman.  She died in Ravenna, Ohio in 1975.

And there was a Myrtle Mary "Mertie" Ludwick who was born 15 December 1886 or 1887 in North Plains Township, Michigan, the daughter of Harvey Milton Ludwick and Emaline Melinda (Dick) Ludwick.  Her paternal grandparents were Samuel G. and Maria (Davis) Ludwick.  Her mother Emaline Melinda Dick was, according to one source, the adopted daughter of Joshua or Joshaway and Mahala C. (Dick) Dick.  Mertie married Henry Harder.  She died in 1952.  

And there are perhaps several other Mertie Ludwicks across North America.  If you happen to have knowledge of a May Norton who was a teacher in the late 1800s to early 1900s, please leave a comment or contact me directly.  Thanks!

Thanks for stopping by.
