    I_L_S: I think I solved your genealogical puzzle on the addressee of the cover -- I venture to guess we weren't looking early enough into 19th century history!

    Anyway, the cover bearing a Scott #26 stamp would have first been in use circa 1857. Well, it seems that the addressee died less than a decade later (1867) at the young age of 39.

    The addressee is one Anna L. Studebaker (a/k/a Anna Louise (Burrell) Studebaker) (b. 10/30/1827; d. 02/11/1867), daughter of Samuel and Lydia Burrell and wife of Reverend Elias Studebaker, all of Pennsylvania at time.

    Here are images of the gravestones of both Rev. Elias Studebaker and his wife, Anna L. Studebaker (and their infant son):

    Since the burials were not in Jersey Shore or even Lycoming County for that matter, here's the connection with Jersey Shore, PA, which suggests that if Reverend Elias Studebaker was a Pastor in that region for 18 years from 1854, he would have continued on with his ministerial duties there until 1872, well after the death of his wife in 1867:

    I wonder if these Studebakers are related to the wagons/cars Studebakers.

    Welcome back Jay. I hope you will enjoy being here. I have enjoyed this site so far. I get a little bored not working a steady job anymore. Looking at some of these forums is a way to kill the boardum.
