The shape of the banner across the badge has to be a small clue. Maybe there's a site that shows the different badges from the time period in question. That's as much help as I can offer.

I have ruled out Ford, due to the shape of the emblem and the shape of the framing of the grill. The Ford emblem is very similar to todays emblem. So I am off to look at other makers

bethzaring: You have a pretty good picture of the license plate in the first picture. I pulled up some license plate history sites and that is where you may find some information.

You can also check old newspapers from that town. This car could have been used in a parade.

This car is rather fancy for the time period because it had a finished paint and was waxed and shiny. The body had more detail than usual.

Some of the names do but I was a small kid at the time; the owner of the ranch we worked used to restore these beauties. I did come across a car club site that has decent photos and so far the ones that look the closest are Buick, Overland, and a couple of others from the 1910's. I'll keep looking too because I can't shake this from my mind yet, lol.
