My Christmas Wish for You – 1920.


My Christmas wish for you – Lost of good wishes, Each friendly and kind, In this Merry Christmas Today you will find.  169.  Xmas Kid Series — 6 designs

Post marked Detroit, Mich.  Dec 23, 1920.  Addressed to Little Miss Weaver, 92 Tireman Ave., Detroit, Mich.

“Dear Little Girl,  We all wish you a very Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year.  From all the Shimmans”

This card was sent to 14 month old Leila Marie Weaver.  The Shimmans do no appear anywhere in the family records, so I assume they were friends of Grandma Florence and Grandpa Lee or possibly Great Grandma and Grandpa Weaver.  At this time, Florence, Lee, and Leila lived in the upstairs of the duplex owned by Lemuel and Effie on Tireman (hence the addresses 92 and 94 Tireman Ave.).

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.
