Belle’s Box – 134

This entry is part 136 of 342 in the series Belle's Box

Read about this series of posts, regarding items in a box originally owned by Belle (Lamunion) Fellows Tinker here. The cast of characters is located here. And, there is an accounting of people about whom I have little information here.

On the 1920 census of Dorr Township, Allegan County, Michigan, which contains the small incorporated place know as Moline, the full identity of the sender of the card is revealed.

The family of Hezekiah R “Kiah” Jones, which includes his wife Harriett “Hattie” (Corkins) Jones is listed, including son Harry. Kiah and Hattie’s daughter, Clara Edith was enumerated with her aunt, Ida Jeffers and Grandmother Ann Jones in the next house. These families were related to Belle’s mother, Miranda Jones. There are several cards in this collection from Jones family members.
