Thomas Henry Harrison Letter

Envelope mailed 1900 from Thomas Harrison, Treasure of Caswell County in Yanceyville, NC addressed to J M Sires in Oxford, NC. On the back it shows a Danville, Va transit mark and an Oxford, NC receiving mark. Evidently the envelope went north across the border to Danville, Va and was probably put on a train that went to Oxford, NC. Danville apparently was a processing center for that part of NC.

This Thos. H. Harrison may have been Thomas Henry Harrison, son of Thomas Satterwhite Harrison (1842-1927) and Adeline Hannah Slade (1843-1878).
