One of the unusual ephemera finds from my visit to the auction of items from Salamonia, Jay County, Indiana was this cancelled check written to the Montgomery Ward & Co. by J. Murl May drawn on the Peoples Bank. In the memo field is written "Lemaster Bird Repairs".
Which LeMaster family member was this in reference to? And what was being repaired? A birdhouse? Who knows? Still, an interesting reference to my family.
