Cute Postcard Birth Announcement of Maxine Leola Knapp, born 1915, Kingfield, Maine
Cute postcard birth announcement for Maxine Leola Knapp, born 3 January 1915 at Kingfield, Maine, the daughter of Ray Donald Knapp and wife Bernice L. (True) Knapp.
Maxine's paternal grandparents were Philo R. and Cora D. (Larrabee) Knapp. Her maternal grandparents were George Henry True and wife Flora (Voter) True.
I believe Maxine never married. She graduated from Colby College in 1936 and worked as a secretary at various banks in Augusta, Maine and Portland, Maine, and at the Ski shop at Sugarloaf Mountain near her hometown of Kingfield. She died in 1999 at Farmington, Maine.
The card was addressed to Mrs. John Shepard at Phillips, Maine. I found more than one possible John Shepard in the Phillips area, a John and Lucy Shepard, a John and a John and Clista Shepard, and perhaps more.
