I have an old letter from 1936 written by Mary (Smith) Aungst to a cousin of mine, Louise Boche in Chicago. Mary lived in Climax, Michigan and was 72 years old when the letter was written. I didn't know of her existence until I found the letter and I don't know how she's related to me. Louise Boche's mother's maiden name was Liesveld, and I know how they're related to me.
Since Louise never married as far as I know, it would be through someone else. In the letter Mary mentions a Cousin Myrtle, Aunt Tillie and her husband (possibly named Will), but no other surnames.
In checking the censuses I think this is the same Mary who was married to Abraham Aungst and had five children, Thomas, Bessie, Walter, Una and Ernest.
I'm hoping someone will recognize some of these names and write back. I'm happy to exchange information and would be willing to share a copy of the letter, too. Thanks.
