    We initially thought the wedding picture was that of Tom and Leah. However, after careful analysis of this photo and one of Horace and his brother Leslie, we are convinced this the wedding of Horace and Dolly. Thanks to Janet Thomas for the picture of Horace and Leslie.

    From the wedding pictures of Horace and Dolly we are pretty sure that this is Dolly. Confusing, as our grandmother, Leah, was also known as Dolly!

    Now then, the postcard was in Rene's album and therefore it must have been sent to Leah. The only other Dolly was Tom's sister, Clara Elizabeth Ellis, who married Horace Edgar Bradley.
