Court House, Mt Vernon, OH – 1918


Court House, Mt. Vernon, Ohio.  A-67072.  Published by Frank E. Kirby, Mt. Vernon, Ohio.  Made in U.S.A.

Post marked Columbus, Ohio.  Jun 17, 1918.  Addressed to Mrs. Lee [Florence Koontz] Weaver, 91 Tireman Ave., Detroit, Mich.

“Are you satisfied now with Mother [Phebie Ann Gardner Koontz]?  Heinie [Henry Allen Koontz]”

Well, first of all, the address was 92 Tireman not 91, but it got there.  Not sure what Uncle Heinie was trying to convey to his older sister.  Great Grandmother Koontz had been widowed for 4 years at this time and Uncle Heinie as all of 18 years old and just starting out at Ohio State in the Fall.  Grandma Florence and Grandpa Lee had just married the previous May.
