Post marked Columbus, Ohio. Jun 8, 1920. Addressed to Mrs. Lee [Florence Koontz] Weaver, 91 Tireman Ave., Detroit, Mich.
“Mr. Cowling fell over dead last night. He was eating supper in bed. Two more exams and I’ll be 1/4 of a doctor, maybe. Here’s hoping. As ever, Heinie [Henry Allen Koontz, Florence’s brother]”
Very wierd transition: Mr. Charles E. Cowling died to exam status! Mr Cowling was a neighbor of the Koontz family on Broad Street in Columbus.
Anyway, Uncle Heinie never quite made it to M.D. He did become a pharmacist upon graduation from Ohio State University. He opened his own Drug Store and later entered politics. He served on the Columbus City Council and later was elected as a Franklin County Commissioner.
