Pastoral Scene – 1912


No markings.

Post marked Redford, Mich.  Jan 23, 1912.  Addressed to Mr. Lee Weaver, 94 Tireman Ave., Detroit, Michigan.

“Redford, Mich.  Jan. 23, 1912  Dear Cousin: How are you?  I am well and the rest are sick.  Our folks are well, but I mean Justin’s [ Justin Rosenthral Jenks, son of Leman Case Jenks, the brother of their grandmother, Esther Jenks Lee] folks and Arley’s [Albert Arlington Jenks,  son of Leman Case Jenks, the brother of their grandmother, Esther Jenks Lee] they are sick.  If nothing prevents I will be down Friday night. Well, so long.  Mae W.[right]  P.S. Have you gone to work yet or haven’t you got a job.  How is Florence?  Mae Wright [Mariam Mae Wright, daughter of Marietta Lee Wright, Lee’s mother’s sister]”

It appears the illness in the ½ brothers’ homes was not fatal — no one died that winter.   Justin and Arley had the same father, but different mothers.   This is the first mention by Mae of Florence.   But with recent correspondence, it is a question of which of Grandpa’s Florence friends she is inquiring.

Then, in June, 2017, I changed over to reporting and commenting on notifications from the ANCESTRY app "We're Related" I then started to provide snippets into ancestor biographies on the dates that were significant anniversaries.
