Amanuensis Monday - Letter from Alfred Bake

Among the second batch of grandma Hazel's stuff is another letter from Alfred Bake talking about Bake genealogy. I thought I would go ahead and share it on the Amanuensis Monday.

          April 26, 1951


Dear Cousin,
   It has been some time since we have heard from you. We have been writing lots of letters to different people & can't find any connection in the Henry Bake & Gilbert Bake families.  We received some pictures from one man & on of the Bakes resembled John Bake quite a little. However I am still trying.
  Do you have a picture of Henry Bake & his wife? I would like to get them if you do to put in my genealogy book.
  I have written to Mary Bake at Malad & asked for Henry Bake's naturalization papers but haven't heard from her since.
  If you have any other pictures that you don't want or would let us use to get prints made from them we would surely like it.
  Thanks a lot.
              Yours truly
               Alfred & Gladys Bake.

I had never heard of Grasmere, Idaho before so I went to Google and I found out that it is a ghosttown.

  1. I think it's fantastic to have old letters from our ancestors - something so very special to see their actual handwriting, and to touch the same paper that they once held.
