Christian Church, Sharon, Kansas, 1917-1918.
Photo postcard courtesy of Douglas Lyon.
I'm attaching a picture postcard of the Christian Church in Sharon, KS. It was sent around Christmas about 1917/18 to my grandfather, Albert Paul SCHLOETZER, from his sister, Lillian SCHLOETZER. She wrote "Merry Christmas" on the front and signed it.
Lillian SCHLOETZER married Jess Cushenberry, also of Sharon, about this time. I don't know any more about the church. If I come across any more information I'll pass it on.
My great-grandfather, Francis Louis SCHLOETZER was a veterinarian in Sharon also about this time.
Of course, I welcome any contact about the SCHLOETZER or CUSHENBERRY families.
