Great stuff! The lower cover appears to be Gustavus, Ohio, 1825 to 1912, in Trumbull County.

Great stuff! The lower cover appears to be Gustavus, Ohio, 1825 to 1912, in Trumbull County. And from Google:

Banning, J. W. - Tuesday. The funeral of J. W. Banning, who died at Ashland, Friday night, took place at Cincinnati yesterday. Submitted by Amy. [Richland Shield & Banner: 01 March 1890, Vol. LXXII, No. 41]

Cover addressed to Mrs. J. W. Banning about 4 months later, in Cincinnati, so there are two connections.

If you post a high resolution scan of the 1 Franklin we can take a shot at identifying it and plating it.

Set your scanning area to about 2 x 2 inches, so it will just pick up the stamp, not the envelope. Use 600dpi setting. Make your scan, and save it in "My Pictures."

Right-click on the image in the list in My Pictures and choose "Open With" "Microsoft Office Picture Manager" -- You will get a screen where you can make all kinds of changes, including size. Reduce down below 100KB SIZE (as required by this site) then SAVE in that smaller size; this is sort of a trial-and-error process. Then you're ready to post it here.

There are easier ways to do this, but this one uses standard Windows tools and procedures.
