Grandma Lizzie’s Letters

Grandma Lizzie was born Elizabeth Agnes Golden on April 15, 1873 in Dennison (Ottawa County), Michigan.  She married my grandfather (William Henry Fitzpatrick) in November 1897.  Grandma Lizzie died on May 20, 1943.

 

Before she married my grandfather she was a school teacher and taught in a number of the local one room schools.

 

As a young woman she corresponded with friends and family through the mail.  She saved a lot of those letters and kept them in a small wooden box.  The following are some of those letters.
