The first page of Grandma’s scrapbook is dedicated to her oldest child, Margaret Jane Yearnd. There are 10 photos of Aunt Jane, her husband, Leo Devereaux, and a person who may be her husband’s sister, Catherine. Aunt Jane called her, “sister Kate”. This page seems to contain photos related to a home Leo and Jane owned in Detroit.
The house is in the 7 mile and Southfield area, on Ashton Road. Papa and I drove past it a few years ago, and it’s still there, and looks much the same. The main difference is, when the Devereauxs purchased the home, there was open area in the back. Now, this section of Detroit is packed with houses. There was a lot of new building and expansion in Detroit right after WWII when they probably bought this house.
