Post marked Albert Lea, Minn. Jul 27, 1934. Addressed to Mrs. Phebie Koontz, 1346½ West Broad St., Columbus, Ohio.
“July 27, 1934 Dear Aunt, Well here I am and found everyone getting along nicely. Olive [Olive Smith Sweet, Alta’s sister] seems to feel real good, we hope to take a fishing trip up in the northern part of the state next month. Hope you are all right. Love. Alta [Alta Smith, daughter of Harriett Honora (Hattie) Koontz Smith, Phebie’s sister in law].”
I am not sure why this post card was part of Grandpa’s collection since it was addressed to Grandma’s mother, but it has a number of important pieces of information. First the spelling of Great Grandma Koontz’ first name — there is no o in her spelling of Phebie. And, the address confirmation of where she was living in 1934.
