Toledo Club, Toledo, Ohio -1918


Toledo Club, Toledo, Ohio. 47047 – Pub. by Progressive News Co., Toledo, Ohio.

Post marked Ligonier, Ind.  Aug. 22, 1918.  Addressed to Mrs. Lee Weaver, 92 Tireman, Detroit, Mich.

“Arrived O.K. Missed train today.  Will go to Kort’s at 7:15 a.m.   As ever, Henry [Henry Allen Koontz]”

The post mark looks more like 1916 than 1918, but Grandma and Grandpa were not married and living in Detroit in 1916, so it had to be 1918.  Uncle Heinie [Henry, Grandma’s brother] was 18 at the time.   I am not sure why he was back in Ligonier, Indiana (the home town of the Koontz family) or who Kort was.
