Irene Draper, Magnolia Delaware


Irene Draper, Magnolia DE Posted by Picasa

Greetings from Magnolia Delaware, part of Caroon Manor and formerly Millichop's Woods! I have several postcards to Miss Irene Draper of Magnolia Delaware. This particular card was mailed from Magnolia DE while Miss Draper was staying in Asbury Park, New Jersey, and soon after she had traveled to hear President Taft speak. This paper relic was mailed sometime around 1911, a long time prior to the housing boom in Magnolia. I wonder if Miss Irene may have been a descendant of Magnolia's Captain Thomas Draper, the man who bought the old Banning Church near Magnolia and moved it away to convert it into a barn. Captain Tom ... predecessor to Trashcan Dan?
