I have a letter addressed to Miss Beatrice M. J. Griffton c/o Mrs. J.(? Jacob / Jake) Scherer, 628 Main Street, Toledo, Ohio dated May 3 1921 by the postoffice from a Catholic Priest in Alice, OH.
The letter mentions Minnie (possibly her sister Marian GIBERSON LAZEL PETTIT) as a relative of Beatrice; and Jake as an uncle asking about a doctor named Scherer.Rev. John / Jean P. Vonville only knew about another priest named Scherer whogrew up in Alsace and was trained in France as he was.
