Why don’t you … – 1914


Why don’t you come across with a letter?      C S 508

Post marked Redford, Mich., Dec 7, 1914.  Addressed to Mrs. Effie L[ee] Weaver, 92 Tireman Ave., Detroit, Michigan.

“Redford, Mich.  Dec 7, 1914.  Dear Aunt,   If I came down the last of this week would you go downtown with me?  I want to go down before Xmas.  If this is convenient for you, please let me hear from you.  Your niece, M.W.  [Mariam Mae Wright]”

The extended Lee family made use of Effie being in Detroit for when they needed to come to town for shopping.   She was the only one of the siblings that did not live on a farm.   Mae and Effie were close.

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.
