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.
The Christmas card is addressed to Belle Fellows, Manton, Mich; and postmarked December 24, 1912. I can’t make out city from which it was mailed. William H. Puff, about 1910-?; was a son of Etta May Murray, 1883-1964 and Fred Puff, 1884-1910. His mother, Etta, was one of six children of Mary Ann Lamunion, 1850-1899; and her husband John H. Murray, ca 1847-1922. Mary Ann was Belle’s sister.
