Old Fort Mackinac – 1934


Old Fort Mackinac 547.

Post marked Cheboygan, Mich.  Jul 26, 1934.  Addressed to Mr. & Mrs. L[ee] Weaver & family, 13975 Steel Ave., Detroit, Mich.

“Hello, Yes we found your sweater.  Intended going over Friday but just couldn’t make it.  Sorry.  Watched for you all day Saturday, but thought you had pulled right on thru.  Expect to leave here Saturday or Sunday a.m.  Will bring your sweater with us.   The Adams Family”

Grandma and Grandpa often stayed at the Adams’ cottage on Mullet Lake, near Cheboygan.  It appears they were there just ahead of the Adams family in 1934.  The Weavers and Adamses stayed friends thoughout their lives — Hazel and Reg were two of the closest friends of Florence and Lee.  And their sons were great friends of Leila and Jmae.  Lee and Florence purchased the house on Steel in 1929 and maintained it until Florence sold it in 1974.

The Old Fort Mackinac sits atop the hill on Mackinac Island (pronounced Mackinaw Island for non-Michiganders).  It is still a tourist stop in the mid-teens of the 21st 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.
