Title: Bessie Maxwell Cronkite relative
Posted by: Maribeth Coll Griessel
Date: 20 June 2010

My father, now deceased, along with others in his family told me Bessie was a second cousin.  In sorting through another cousin's belongings (as executor of her estate) I found a postcard from Brussels, Belgium, with handwritten message, "Merry Christmas and a happy New year to all your family from Bessie and Walter".  Cannot determine date, but postage stamp says 2F as the cost, and "Belgie Belgique".  The picture on the postcard is a painting of a childrens' nativity scene, appearing to date from the 1930's or 1940's.
