Christmas Greetings – 1909


Christmas Greetings. No. 9001 Relief / glait.  No. 9002 Brillant.  Reg. U.S.A. Pat. Off.

No post mark.  [not mailed] Addressed to Mr. Lemuel Weaver, 94 Tireman Ave, Detroit, Michigan.

“12-23-09  Columbus, Ohio.   Dear Brother, I thought I would remind you that we are braving cold weather.  I am at home since Saturday and glad over it for I am not very well.  Hope this will find you well and you will have a prospers [sic.] new year.  Yours, Christeen [Christiana Weaver Rinehart, Lemuel’s older sister]”

Aunt Teen was a fixture in Great Grandpa Weaver’s life and then on until her death in 1934 she was in contact with his widow, Great Grandma Weaver, and his son, Grandpa Lee Weaver.   Grandpa Lee always spoke fondly of Aunt Teen.  I chose this card as the first of the Christmas post cards for the blog since it is one of my favorites in the set.  This is the first day of Advent 2016, 107 years after the card was produced.  It is with this card that I will be closing off the first volume of the printed Blog Book of Grandpa’s post cards.  I will be continuing with the Christmas Card set through Christmas Day and then switch over to the New Years cards.



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.
