You can read about Belle Lamunion, 1864-1848, and her amazing box of family memories here. Belle married Henry H Fellows, 1858-1905 in 1879 in Ashland Township, Newaygo County, Michigan.
This series of posts will center around the approximately 405 items in the box which are in my possession. I scanned the items one at at time as they were picked up from the box, in no particular order; and so the scans are not arranged by date or any other method. The posts will be numbered according to the order of the scanned item in my files. It may be that the posts will not appear in number order, especially if extra investigation is needed regarding a given item. So, just to be clear, the cards, clippings, photos and other items that were in the box will be described one at a time, and titled with the file number of the item’s scan.
You can read about the characters whose names appear in the box in Cast of Characters . If you are related to this family, please contact me.
This card is dated march 29, 1920 and postmarked Grand Rapids, Michigan.
The card is written to Belle, and signed “Mart & Myrtle”. I have no Idea who Mart is, but Myrtle could be the second daughter of Henry and Belle, Mary/Merta Fellows. She married twice that I am aware of, to a Featherly and to Benjamin Bush.
Edna Rose Fellows, 1892-1950, and her husband Ross Pressley Fenton, 1884-1957; and the “kids” are M-in-L’s family. Edna and Ross were Papa’s grandparents.
In 1920 there were three “kids” in their family, Laura Mae, 1910-1999; George Emerson, 1912-2001; and Frank Alfred, 1915-1994.
