High Street North from Capital, Columbus -1920


High Street North from Capitol, Columbus, Ohio.  336. Published by the Haenlein Brothers Co, Inc., Columbus, Ohio.   Made in U.S.A.   R-67039

Post marked Columbus, Ohio.  Jun 8, 1920.  Addressed to Mrs. Lee [Florence Koontz] Weaver, 91 Tireman Ave., Detroit, Mich.

“Mr. Cowling fell over dead last night.  He was eating supper in bed.  Two more exams and I’ll be 1/4 of a doctor, maybe.  Here’s hoping.  As ever, Heinie [Henry Allen Koontz, Florence’s brother]”

Very wierd transition:  Mr. Charles E. Cowling died to exam status!  Mr Cowling was a neighbor of the Koontz family on Broad Street in Columbus.

Anyway, Uncle Heinie never quite made it to M.D.  He did become a pharmacist upon graduation from Ohio State University.  He opened his own Drug Store and later entered politics.  He served on the Columbus City Council and later was elected as a Franklin County Commissioner.

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.
