Wishing a Joyous Easter for You! – 1919


Wishing a Joyous Easter for You!   E-145.  Made in the U.S.A.

Post marked Chicago, Ill.  Apr 19, 1919.  Addressed to Mr. & Mrs. Lee [& Florence Koontz] Weaver, 92 Tireman Ave., Detroit, Mich.

“4/19/19  Dear Cousins,  Will B home in a few days – will write then.  I feel ashamed for not doing so B4.  Cousin, Fay. [Dwight Fay Koontz]”

Grandma Florence’s cousin, Fay was the son of Orrin Deforest Koontz, the brother of her father Casmear (aka C,P.) Koontz.     Fay was an infrequent visitor to Lee and Florence’s home over the years, but he and Grandma kept in contact.  There are photographs of Grandpa Lee and Fay together in their WW I Army uniforms.

Note the use of text shorthand in 1919 – almost 100 years B4 the use of text messaging.

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.
