Money Talks … – 1918


Money talks — but all it says to me is good-by.  1555.

Post marked Columbus, Ohio,  Aug. 14, 1918.  Addressed to Mrs. Lee [Florence Koontz] Weaver, 92 Tireman Ave., Detroit, Mich.

“We will come Sunday on the morning boat.  If not, I will send you a telegram but look for us .  Leave here 3 P.M. Sat.  As ever, Heinie [Henry Allen Koontz]”

Not sure who the “we” constitutes.  Based on the 1918 date, I assume it was Grandma’s brother, Uncle Heinie and her mother, Great Grandma Koontz [Phebie Ann Gardner Koontz].

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.
