Happy 123rd Birthday, Cousin Mae!


Estelle, Claire, and Miriam Mae Wright

It was 123 years ago, 4 November 1896, that my first cousin, twice removed, Miriam Mae Wright was born in Southfield, Oakland County, Michigan, to Stephen A. D. and Mariette Lee Wright.   Marietta was my  Great Grandmother’s sister.  Cousin Mae was a frequent writer to both my Great Grandmother and to my Grandfather in the postcards that appear in earlier editions of this blog.  Mae was the second child of Aunt Ettie and Uncle Steve whose brood numbered 8 in total.

On 29 January 1924, in Pontiac, Oakland County, Michigan, Mae married Henry Ray Coons.  The couple had two daughters, Shirley Jeane (1926), and Wanda Mae (1927).   Mae passed away on 6 November 1944, just after her 48th birthday, and was laid to rest in the family plot in the Southfield Cemetery.

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.
