Rockefeller Building, Cleveland, Ohio – 1918


Rockefeller Building, Cleveland, Ohio.  6831.  Pub. by J. Sapirstein, Cleveland, Ohio

Post marked Gary, Ind.  Jul 4, 1918.  Addressed to Mrs. L. G. [Lee G. / Florence Koontz] Weaver, 92 Tireman, Detroit, Michigan.

“7-3-18  Hello Sis,  Well I go farther each time and this is the 3rd time, so Oh, you Bill!  You had better figure on driving to Chicago for your vacation.  Sailor Bill. [William P. Koontz]”

Uncle Bill was stationed at the Great Lakes Naval Station in Chicago — apparently he made three attempts to visit Grandma and Grandpa in Detroit.   With a third failure, he was telling Grandma that she had better come to Chicago!

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.
