The Summer of 1914


In the summer of 1914 Adelle took the girls to Michigan to stay at a cottage near Green Lake. A.D. joined them later and they had a nice time. Margaret recalls hunting for Petoskey stones and, still that summer, eating so many blueberry muffins that she threw up, leaving an indelible stain on the floor of the bedroom. 


Landon, Margaret (1903-1993)


January 1, 1914
