Friday's Photo: Another Postcard From Seymour, Texas

I have mentioned Seymour School in previous blogs. My father and his older siblings attended this school and my Aunt DeRay Bryan taught at the school for a year or two. 

The three story rock building was completed in 1902. It had 12 classrooms, two offices, and an auditorium. 

Postmarked November 25, 1910 in Seymour, Texas, this postcard was addressed to
Myrtle Cloud, 409 E. 2nd, Austin, Texas
Dear Aunt Myrtle
I was glad to hear from you. Otis and Warren are sick. But Warren is better.
Love to all From Lois

Lois was easy to find. 1910 was a census year and there was one family in Seymour, Texas with children Lois, Warren, and Otis.  The children's father was Otis E. Carter, a clergyman. Virginia E. Carter was his second wife and the stepmother to his children. Otis and Virginia were married in 1908. Her sister was Myrtle Cloud of Austin, Texas. The children's mother was Alice Doman who passed away on March 9, 1907.
