These two items belonged to my grandfather, Rosmer Kerr. On the carte-de-visite at left, someone has identified the girl pictured as Chick Kerr. I don't know whose handwriting that is, and except for these two items, I've never heard of anyone called Chick Kerr.
To the right, the picture side of this postcard was inscribed by two people. The first, presumably the sender of the card, wrote This is "Betty" in the back yard. Later someone added Chic Kerr's daughter. The card was mailed from Mercer, Pennsylvania on March 22, 1909 to brothers Milton and Rosmer Kerr in Slippery Rock. The message is:
Kids, We just heard that you have 9 weeks vacation. Come up and hear about the trip south and see the new Court House. Uncle R.I believe the uncle who wrote this card was Ralph Kerr, brother of the boys' deceased father.
I'd like to find out how Chick Kerr and her daughter Betty were related to the descendants of Andrew Jackson Kerr. If you can help, please use the Comments feature to share information.
