Miss Agnus Jenkins Woodside DE Christmas 1909













Elizabeth Caulk mailed this Christmas postcard to her friend, Miss Agnes Jenkins, in Woodside Delaware. Agnes was the daughter of Phillip and Mary Jenkins of Woodside. Mary ran the old Jenkins Store (Reeds Store) on the other side of the railroad tracks in Woodside.

Mailed on December 23, 1909, this is a whisper from Christmas past.


The Christmas postcard below was also sent to Agnes Jenkins. This one was sent on December 23, 1907 (from Rosie) and features a cloth Santa. Note the American Flag in Santa's sack, and that he's being helped by angels, not elves.



















This old postcard was mailed on November 20, 1906 from Felton Delaware to Glancy Jenkins in Woodside. I believe that Glancy was Agnes' brother. This postcard was mailed 100 years ago.... imagine.

Just in case someone is looking....my husband is Ken....his grandfather was Caleb Jenkins....Caleb's father was James Jenkins....James's father was Andrew. In Felton, there is a road called Barney Jenkins Road...James and Barney are brothers. Barney was a twin to Hazzard Jenkins, born in 1879. Do you know what happened to Hazzard..he was not listed on the 1890 or later census records. He is on the 1880 census. Thanks for your info....Joanne
