Secretary House,Greenfield Village – 1935


Secretary House, Greenfield Village, Dearborn, Michigan.  Artcraft Photo Co., Rutherford, N.J.

Post marked Greenfield, Mich.  Aug 13, 1935.  Addressed to Leila Weaver, 13975 Steel, Detroit, Mich.

“Dick [Richard  Darwin Koontz, Leila’s cousin]”

In August, 1935, Dick had just turned 7 years old.  It is obvious the card was addressed by either Uncle Heinie [Henry Allen Koontz] or Aunt Betti [Bettinna J. Henry Koontz], his parents.   All that is written in the message is a 7 year old’s script signature.   Grandma Florence’s brother and family must have been up from Columbus for a visit.

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.
