Postcard – Greetings for your Birthday

This is the last item I have from the Gray family postcard collection, which I believe came from the estate of Bernice Erma Gray.

This wasn’t mailed, so has no postmark. It was addressed to Mr. Alex Gray, Craig, MO.

Compliments of Mrs. J. B. Reynolds

Joseph B. Reynolds was married to Nancy J. Parrish Reynolds, daughter of Simeon Parrish, who raised Alex after his parents died. She was two years older than Alex. Her Find A Grave memorial is here.
