An Easter Thought – 1920


An Easter Thought.  Easter means “Optimism” set to Music and adorned with Beauty.  I wish for you it’s truest happiness!     1832C. 

Post marked Columbus, Ohio. April 2, 1920.   Addressed to Florence [Koontz] Weaver, 92 Tireman Av, Detroit, Mich.

“Dear Florence, Received your card yesterday glad you got home all OK.  Essie [Koontz Postal] had a nice visit too.  A round got home Ethel [Koontz Griste] or coming to Co [Columbus].  C [Charles McKinley Griste] starts to work Monday M. I guess Ethel is glad.  I hope they will get a house close by.  I am sorry that I put a bug in Lela [Leila Marie Weaver] ear.  I told her if she wanted to come back to Grandma she should cry real hard so you will have to bring her back.  Mother [Phebie Ann Gardner Koontz]”

Well, a full report from Great Grandmother Koontz!  Aunt Essie also came to visit.  In 1920, Aunt Essie was still married to Louis Postal and living with his family.   Aunt Ethel and Uncle Charles were married for 7 years, had 2 children and a third on the way. So, it was a good thing Uncle Charles was starting work!  Now, not sure how effective the bug in Aunt Leila’s ear was going to be.  In April of 1920, she would be closing in on 6 months of age.   Obviously, her Grandma Koontz, wanted to see more of her.

It is really a great find to have a post card written by my Great Grandmother.
