18-year-old Helena Muffly wrote exactly 100 years ago today:
Monday, August 18, 1913: Left Alma’s this morning and walked over to Ottawa. Called on my uncles this afternoon. Came home on the afternoon train. I met quite a few people while away.
Her middle-aged granddaughter’s comments 100 years later:
This was the last day of a three-day trip that Grandma took to Montour County to visit her cousin Alma.
They visited their uncles, Samuel and George Muffly. Samuel and George were brothers of Grandma’s father, and lived on a farm at the very small hamlet of Ottawa. According to the 1910 census Samuel Muffly was a 43-year-old single male, and George was a 34-year-old single male.
