Note: The record is not clear. As the postcard was mailed from Oneida, that must have been her brother's address. It is just below the Kalamazoo address. This makes sense, as that is the area were she still lived in the early 1960's. However, the street name is hard to read. "Teener Ave.? "Feener Ave."? Neither street exists in present-day Oneida.
