It looks like Olia Reed was forwarding mail to Belle, and perhaps to her mother who may have lived near Belle in Wexford County, or been visiting in the area.

In the period from 1900-1920, several women who might be this Olive/Olia Reed/Reid/Read show up on various census in west Michigan. Perhaps later items will reveal more clues about her identy.
