 Miss Annie Alice LANKFARD married Christopher Columbus Smith on April 11, 1912.
Annie must have been her nickname.
The index spelling was LANKFORD.
If you read the actually document, it reads LANKFARD.

Sallie who was Mrs. James LANKFARD.
Note: neither Anna or Sallie had any children.

  1. Just a thought on the last name listed on postcard. "Lankford", the "a" touches the line, the "h" is barely a "k", the "o" does not touch/land on the line.. Do not know how it appears on the other "possible" references written by Anna Alice Smith.
