"Compliments of C.D. Bausticker, Marble Worker, Goldsboro, Pa."

Indeed, "Compliments of C.D. Bausticker, Marble Worker, Goldsboro, Pa." is all that is written on this thin and tiny old piece of paper. (It measures 2 inches by 3 inches.)

The 1916 edition of the "Industrial Directory of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania" lists C.D. Bausticker under the "Marble and Granite Work" section. The address is listed as "Main Office, Etters," which means Bausticker's Goldsboro-based business had a PO box in the closest York County post office.

Beyond that, I can't discover much of anything about C.D. or his business. What kind of stonework did he create? Is any of it still around, perhaps in cemeteries? I'll have to throw this one out there as a mystery to my York County history-buff friends at Preserving York and elsewhere.
