Eliza and Debbie, I didn't get a notification of your notes and now 11 years later, stumbling back over my posting, I'm not sure you are still out there or email the same? Thank you very much for this info! Not sure if it will totally solve my problem, but them the actual author of my postcard now comes into question. Since my first posting, my Aunt who sent me the postcard saying it was her mothers handwriting has passed a few years ago. At least there are still clues now, and maybe a connection to the Carter or associated family in some way?
