Birthdays, Lots of Birthdays!


The horse and wagon that belonged to Lee Weaver.

15 May was a pretty busy day for birthday cake baking in the family!  My grandmother’s grandfather, Ezra Peter Koontz, was born on this day in 1832; my grandfather, Lee Norton Goodliff Weaver, was born on this day in 1893, and my grandfather’s cousin, Estelle Wright, was born on this day in 1894.

Now, grandma’s grandfather died in 1864, so there was no way he would have met her or her husband, Lee.  But, Lee and Estelle were thick as thieves as children.  Lee was the son of Effie Clarissa Lee Weaver and Estelle was the daughter of Effie’s sister Marietta Lee Wright.  If you wish to be super industrious, you can page way back in this blog to when I was showing Lee’s postcard collection.  There are a number of postcards from Estelle to Lee or  her Aunt Effie.

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.
