Post marked Columbus, Ohio. Apr 24, 1910. Addressed to Mr. Lemuel Weaver, 94 Tireman Ave., Detroit, Michigan
“April 24 – 10 Dear Brother, Will write you a few lines. Ellora [Weaver] and Charlie [ Charles Lewis Weaver, her father] left here this morning for Mount Clemens. They took your address. Charlie will call on you before he comes home and she will write to you folks. Lora [Ellora] is in bad shape. I wish you all can go to see her. Christeen [Christiana Weaver Rinehart, Lemuel ‘s and Charles’ sister]. Hope you are all well [written upside down across the top of the message portion of the card]”
By 1910, Aunt Teen was a widow, her first husband, David Rinehart died in 1907, and had pretty much taken the role of matriarch for the Weaver family. She was the primary information source and “suggestion” giver to her younger brother, Lemuel, my great grandfather.
