Those Places Thursday ~ West Union School Yearbook 1916 – 1917

This was my Great Grandma Jessie Opal CONN FENN BRITTON yearbook from when she was in 8th grade at West Union School.  The book was made of paper with pictures glued in it. I believe some of her siblings are in the younger grades.

Amaneunsis Monday ~ Addie WARD CONN ~ Letter 28-40

This letter was written by Addie WARD CONN to her daughter Jessie Opal CONN FENN BRITTON. This letter confirms the names Nancy PRICE and William WARD that I thought were the parents. My great aunt had this letter but she must have forgotten about this information. I was excited when I found it.
