Walnut Ave, Lakeside, Ohio – 1919


Walnut Avenue, Lakeside, Ohio.  44232 – Pub. by Mrs. C. S. Gould, Lakeside, Ohio.

Post marked Lakeside, Ohio.  Aug. 4, 1919.  Addressed to Mrs. Lee [Florence Koontz] Weaver, 92 Tireman Ave, Detroit, Mich.

“Having a good time over here.  Am I not quite a traveler?  Going to Put-in-Bay Sun or Mon. As Ever, Heinie [Henry Allen Koontz, Florence’s brother]”

Lakeside is just that, on the side of Lake Erie, just above Cedar Point.  Uncle Heinie lived in Columbus.  Not a huge distance!  In 1919, Heinie was 19 years old and still single.   He would have been a student at Ohio State University.  And, yes, Heinie was his nickname.   It is from the German equivalent of his first name, Heinrich.  Between his father’s Koontz (Kunz) and his mother’s Gardner (Gaertner) German roots, there was no hope.
