“Fort Terry, N.Y.  9-30-18.  Dear Wife — Just a card tonight to let you know I am well. It us awful lonesome here and nothing to write about.  Was some sick this morning with my stomach.  Wish I could have some of your coffee  Hope to hear from you soon.  Lovingly yours, Lee [Weaver]”

Grandpa Lee was stationed at Fort Terry, near Syracuse, New York,  during World War I.  He reported shortly after he and Grandma Florence married in May of 1918.  He really liked Grandma’s coffee — in later years he would be quoted as saying, “Flossie, put the coffee on.” when company arrived at their home.

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.
