Upon Which Lennie Goes For a Buggy Ride With His Sister Ollie

Sunday, July 3, 1898
Nice day.
Went out buggy riding with Ollie.

Ollie is Lennie's sister, older than he, and married for three years to Charles (Carl) Emil Schulz. Lennie is back row, center. His two sisters are Myrtle, left, and Olive (Ollie), right. And look at Lennie's brothers. Did you ever see such handsome moustaches? Their parents are Josiah Davis and Mary Jane (Crawford) formerly of Ohio.
