Thanksgiving Greetings – 1914


Thanksgiving Greetings.  2168.  Printed in Germany.

Post mark not readable.  Addressed to Mr. Lee Weaver, Detroit, 92 Tireman Ave., Mich.

“Corning, O. Nov. 24, 1914   Dear Cousin & All, How is everyone out there I hope all are well.  We are having nice weather here now just at present.  I hope you will forgive me for not answering your letter.  I have been so bad with the Rematics [rheumitics].  Will write some time.  The rest are all well.  Ellora [Weaver]”

Ellora Weaver was the daughter of Lemuel Weaver’s brother Charles Louis Weaver.  She sufffered from rheumatoid arthritis and would travel to Mount Pleasant for treatment at the mineral baths there.   She would always stay with Uncle Lem, Aunt Effie, and  cousin Lee, in route.

Another of the raised image cards from Germany.  Again, the picture looks great, the writing on the back, a bit more challenging.  The addressing on the card is in the order noted above.  The Weaver home on Tireman was a duplex — they owned both 92 and 94 Tireman.  Great Grandma and Grandpa Weaver (Lemuel and Effie) lived in 94.  They rented out 92 except for a period between 1918 and 1929 when Grandpa Lee, Grandma Florence and their daughters lived there prior to moving to the house on Steel.


About Pat Shaul

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.
