South Range, Mich. – 1914


South Range, Mich.  Published by United Post Card Co., New York,

Post marked Trimountain, Mich.  Aug 11, 1914.  Addressed to Mrs. L [Lemuel] Weaver, 92 Tireman Ave. Detroit, Mich.

“Aug 10 – 1914   Dear Friend, Having a fine time.  Expect to go camping next week at White City.  There are seven cows and a calf at the front gate now.   All you can hear is cow bells.  Hope you had a fine time at reunion.  Hope Mr. W [Lemuel Weaver, Effie’s husband] is improving in health.  With love & best wishes. F.”

This was addressed to Effie Lee Weaver.  It appears to be from her future daughter in law, Florence Koontz.   This card, more than the others in this series, look like Grandma’s handwriting.  The reunion was the Jenks Family Reunion which was held each year with the descendants of Morris and Prudence White Jenks.   In 1914, the reunion was held at the Southfield home of Albert Arlington Jenks, the son of Leman Case Jenks.  Arlington, as he was called, was Effie’s first cousin.
