Memorial Card printed upon the death of Lydia Park, age 66, in March of 1902. The card was printed by the Ideal Memorial Card Company of Bluffton, Ohio.
The card was found in an album of cabinet photographs, Cartes de Visite, tintypes and memorial cards, which I thought were from the same family. But when taking out the individual items for scanning, I noticed that some of them had antique mall markings. Some of the items in the album have an obvious relationship, but others may have been randomly inserted to fill the spaces. Irritating for those of us who like to tie up loose ends.
If you have corrections and/or additions to the information above, or if you feel that Lydia was a different person, please leave a comment or contact me directly.
