  1. Samuel Porter Howland was my great grandfather. The above image appeared on a postcard (dated June 20, 1920) announcing his retirement from his position carrying the mail on a Rural Free Delivery route out of Juniata, NE. More than likely that he had the portrait made for his retirement a little bit before that date.
