City Water Works, Ligonier, Ind. – 1918


City Water Works, Ligonier, Ind.   33203-R

Post marked Ligonier, Ind.  Aug. 26, 1918.  Addressed to Mrs. Lee [Florence Koontz] Weaver, 92 Tireman Ave., Detroit, Mich.

“Can’t you drive down next Sunday?  Russel is coming there Sunday.  asw Henry [Allen Koontz, Forence’s brother]”

Ligonier, Indiana, is where the Koontz family had settled for a number of generations prior to Florence’s and Henry’s father remove to Ohio.  Much of the family, including their Grandfather, Ezra Peter Koontz, stayed in Indiana.  I have no idea who Russel was or why his presence would mean Grandma should drive to Indiana.

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.
