“Dear Children, I suppose you got home all OK.  Chester & Bettey [Chester Arthur and Elizabeth Merle Leeper Smith] came that evening after supper.  They stayed all nite.  Had a nice time – went up town all around.We all had our supper at the Park Grases [sic.]and all got home about 11:30.  Came home Saturday.  H {Henry Allen Koontz] was tired,  Me.  Well, more later.  Mother [Phebie Ann Gardner Koontz]”

It seems that Great Grandma Koontz knew to start with guilt.  Chester and Bettey were were Phebie’s nephew and his wife.   Chester was the son of Harriett Honora Koontz Smith, the sister of Casmear Koontz, Phebie’s late husband.

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.
