A Bright and Happy Easter.  O Lord of all, with us abide. In this our joyful Eastertide.  From every weapon death can wield thine own redeemed froever shield.    369.  

Post marked Birmingham, Mich.  Apr. 6, 1912.  Addressed to Mrs. Effie [Lee] Weaver, 94 Tireman Ave., Detroit, Mich.

“Wishing you all a very happy Easter. Aunt Eva [Evelyn Seymour Jenks] and Irene Jenks.”

[then, angled, upside down, is written]

“I intended to come down vacation but had so much sewing to do did not get away.  Love to all. Aunt Eva”

Aunt Eva [Evelyn Roselia Seymour Jenks] was the widow of Oliver Torrey Jenks.   Oliver was the brother of Effie’s mother, Esther Jenks Lee.  Irene Jenks and Grandpa Lee were first cousins, once removed, but of the same generation (they were born the same year) and were close friends.    Aunt Eva served as the Jenks Family Historian for many years during the early 20th century and provided numerous Histories of the various branches of Morris Jenks and his descendants.




About Pat Shaul

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.
