Continuing to go through items from the Champion household:

Found this business card:

Doc Gatesman frontDoc Gatesman back

 

Who would have thought so much could be learned from a business card!

Apparently, A. H. Bringe (Albert Henry – my husband’s grandfather) sent this to one of his brothers.  On the card, it mentions that he had “got this to day.”  Which means he probably went to visit the doctor that day.  And, he mentions that “Minnie and Ester got the Thiford fever”.  The only Minnie known to my husband was Minnie Burr, the wife of Albert’s half-brother, John B. Bringe.  And, Minnie and John had a daughter, Esther.
