Mass Copper Taken from Michigan Mine – 1914


Mass copper taken from Michigan mine, weight 8 tons.  Photo by A.W. Buck.

Post marked Trimountain, Mich.  Aug 5, 1914.   Addressed to Mr. Lem [Lemuel] Weaver, 94 Tireman Ave., Detroit, Mich.

“Having the time of my life.  Hope you are feeling better. F.”

Again, assumption that this is from Great Grandpa Weaver’s future daughter in law, Florence Koontz.     The card itself is a testament to the copper industry in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan in the early Twentieth Century.

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.
