The Forks, Ligonier, Ind. – 1917


The Forks, Ligonier, Ind.  Auburn Post Card Mfg. Co.  Auburn, Ind.

Post marked Ligonier, Ind.  Aug. 24, 1917.  Addressed to Miss Florence Koontz, 826 S High Street, Columbus, O.

” O hit I am sick of this place already.  It seems as if I couldn’t learn to like the place. Henry”

This is from Henry Allen Koontz to his sister, Florence.   Ligonier was the home of their grandfather and uncle.  “O hit” must have been a 1917 version of an expletive.  And Uncle Heinie must have really hated it since he signed it Henry instead of Heinie as was his custom.

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.
