green mail Letter from Reynoldsville Reynoldsville, Pennsylvania
Hello there. Part of a letter dated Sept 18th 1895 held in my family was found among my Grandfather's papers when he died in 1976. The letter begins "Dear Cousins" and the writer refers to a recent trip taken, presumably to visit relatives in Co Durham, England. The second page of the letter is missing so we do not know the name of the writer, nor do we have the name of the recipient. I assume the writer to be male. The writer states he arrived home on the 11th day of Sept after being away from home for 11 weeks, spending 11 days on the water (name of ship not known) and then spending 3 days in Philadelphia before returning home to Reynoldsville. My Grandfather's name was WILLIAM JAMES born 1900 so the letter was clearly not sent to him, but it obviously had sentimental family value to be kept for all those years. My Grandfather's father was also called William James, he was a coal miner and lived in a mining village called LITTLETOWN, CO DURHAM, ENGLAND. I believe there were coal mines in Reynoldsville area, and a story in our family tells of an unknown family member who emigrated to USA but we have no details. Other family names apart from James include: CUMMINGS, SIMPSON, GREEN, LLOYD, all in Co Durham, England. If anyone has any info on the writer of the letter or thinks they may be related to my family please contact me sending all known details. Thank you.
