I have an original postcard photograph of “Charles Batchelder”, signed by him, which I’d like to get back to descendants or family members. Photo was mailed on July 18, 1912 from Troy, NY to a Mr. Jack Morris, North Bennington, VT.He looks to be about age 21 in the photo.
I found a Charles P. Batchelder in the 1900 census for Lansingburgh, Rensselaer Co., NY, showing birthdate of Mar 1890, and son of Elroy and Louise Batchelder. In 1912, he would have been 22, which matches the man in the photo.
There is, however, another Charles Batcheldor (with an o) living in 1910 in Troy (Rensselaer Co.) NY, age 36, which would make him 38 in 1912; he was son of Lucia. This is the same Charles Batcheldor who was in the 1900 census for Lansingburgh (Rensselaer Co.) NY, age 25 and single, son of Lanso and Lucia Batcheldor. This man, born in about 1874 is not the man in the photo I have.
