Belle’s Box – 3-20

This entry is part 274 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.

The numbering of these posts had been modified to signify that I am posting items from my archival book three, a three precedes the item number.



Well, I have searched our family tree backwards and forwards and I don’t have any Kathleen, Kathy or other derivative which would fit this announcement. She was a small baby, or the scales were in need of calibration.

Since most of the children in rural Northern Lower Michigan who were born before 1930 or so were born at home, I suspect this baby arrived later. I wonder if private homes just wouldn’t have had a scale to weigh a baby.
