Union Bank, Pittsburgh – 1919


Union Bank Building, Pittsburgh, PA.  A-23466. Published by I. Robbins & Son, Pittsbutgh, PA.  Made in U.S. A.

Post marked Pittsburgh, PA.  Jul 18, 1919.  Addressed to Mrs. L. G. [Lee G / Florence Koontz] Weaver, 92 Tireman Ave., Detroit, Mich.

“7-18-19   Well sis.  afar a little stay at home I think I’ll come to see you .  If Ethel hasn’t gone away yet, she may come with me.  Home Sunday.  Bill [William P Koontz]”

Uncle Bill was Grandma Florence’s younger brother.   In 1919, he has just returned from WW I.   I cannot be sure which Ethel he was referring to in his note — there is Ethel Koontz Griste, Bill’s  and Florence’s sister and then there is Ethel Chidester, Uncle Bill’s future wife – they were married in 1921.  There should be a rule that you cannot marry someone with the same first name as your sibling!
