To Wish You a Merry Christmas


To wish you a Merry Christmas.  

No post mark [not mailed]  Addressed to Mr. Lee Weaver, Detroit, Michigan.

“Dear Nephew, I hope you will have a Merry Xmas and a happy new year and don’t be fickle minded about the girls.  Aunt Rose [Roseanah Weaver Fisher]”

I have no idea when Aunt Rose sent this to Grandpa Lee, but there was more than just a Christmas message here!   Aunt Rose was Great Grandfather Lemuel Weaver’s sister and she lived in Columbus, Ohio.   The Weaver and Koontz families were close friends.   Possibly Grandpa Lee was giving Grandma Florence the business and Aunt Rose was reprimanding him?

The postage requirement on the card is the only clue as to the dating of it:  1 cent to United States, Canada or Mexico.  2 cents to all other Countries.  This would indicate it was before 1916.

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.
