Won’t You Say Yes? -1912


Won’t you say yes?

Post marked Birmingham, Mich,  Dec 2, 1912.  Addressed to Mr. Lee G. Weaver, 94 Tireman Ave., Detroit, Mich,

“To what we were talking about.  I feel much better than when I left.  Take my advice and cut her out.  Keep cheerful and let me know if you get the job.   Lovingly, Irene [Jenks]”

Wow, is Grandpa’s cousin, Irene, telling him to dump Grandma?  Or, maybe some other young lady?   Irene was one of Grandpa’s confidants, so she probably knew more than most what was going on in his mind.  Part of the reality of being an only child with a very strong mother force.

Genealogist / Family Historian; Blog started as a record of my Grandfather's post card collection which ran for 15 months. 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.
