Driveway at Orchard Lake, Mich. 5011.
Post marked Birmingham, Mich. Jul 12, 1912. Addressed to Mrs. Effie [Lee] Weaver, 94 Tireman Ave., Detroit.
“Dear Effie, Did you get caught in the big wind the other day. Do you know whether it done any harm out Redford or Southfield way. How is everybody. I have not heard in long time. Sorry the girls could not stay that night but Irene [Jenks] was at the church all that forenoon and in bed in afternoon had high fever. Aunt Eva [Evelyn Seymour Jenks, wife of Oliver Torrey Jenks, Esther Jenks Lee’s brother.]”
There must have been a big wind storm in July, 1912. Aunt Eva was the family historian for all the Jenks Family Reunions. She wrote biographies of Morris Jenks and each of his children. There is even a write up on the house built in 1852 and the members of the family that lived there over the years. Each of the reunions is faithfully recorded as to who was there, births, deaths, marriages, and what food was served (in specific, what flavor of ice cream was made).
