From the Files of Marguerite Cook Clark: A Bienville Parish Christmas Card

This card was found in the collection of Marguerite Cook Clark. It was sent to her grandparents Rev. Thomas J. Martin and Laura Bryan Cook from the Wesley Hammett family. Laura, Wesley, and Wesley's wife, Sally, were first cousins. The stamp indicates the card was probably sent in the 1920s - before 1928 as Thomas Martin died in April of 1928. 

I had planned to explain how Laura Martin and the Hammetts were related, but I felt I was writing in circles so made this chart.
