1916 Postcard Addressed to Charles H. Lurchin (1886-1965), then of Eastport, Maine

Postcard postmarked Worcester, Massachusetts, March 30, 1916, sent to Charles Lurchin, 36 High Street, Eastport, Maine.

The postcard shows a locomotive emerging from the State Line Tunnel of the Boston & Albany Railroad.

The postcard recipient was presumably Charles H. Lurchin (1886-1965), a native of Lubec, Maine, son of Israel W. Lurchin and Susan Rebecca (Morang) Lurchin.   By 1910,the family had moved to Leominster, Massachusetts.

According to Charles' record in the Massachusetts Mason Cards collection, he was a paper cutter, living at Leominster, Massachusetts.  Although he died in Leominster, his funeral and burial were in Eastport, Maine.

 If you have information on the Lurchin and Morang families of Lubec, Maine, Eastport, Maine, or Worcester, Massachusetts, please leave a comment for the benefit of other researchers.
