A birthday letter to Gladys Strite from her father-in-law, John S. Grist
Status: Located; Ottawa, Oct. 25, 1929

My Dear Gladys,

I rather hate to do it, but it's no use. I must again remind you that you are another year older. But really, from the snaps just to land, you don't look it! Indeed the years just seem to improve appearance s rather than otherwise. Gee! It must be nice to keep on getting three good meals a day. I'm lucky if I get two now that my girl has left me.

But the year has brought such joy! That darling baby [Franklin James Grist Jr.]. Am taking the pictures to the folks to see. The truck comes today to move Vio's [?] furniture to Windsor. Laura proposes to move hers in right away and stay and keep open house to the friends, But Bryson's poor old mother, left alone in the world now -- I feel sorry for.

Am mailing a pair of gloves today. They will do to drive the car. Love to all.

In haste, Your Father, John S. Grist

Appleton Man Injured When Car Hits Train
Appleton Man Injured When Car Hits Train
NEENAH -- a 28-year-old Appleton man, John R. Grist, 1112 N. Leminwah St., escaped without serious injury early this morning when his car slammed into a Soo Line train at the West Cecil Street crossing.

According to Neenah police, the mishap occurred at 2:35 a.m. when Grist's 1960 auto, traveling west on W. Cecil, struck the second car in a five-unit train being pulled by a Soo Line switch engine. Extensive damage was done to the front end of the car.

The Grist vehicle skidded at least eight feet before it struck the train. The impact, police said, knocked one of the railroad cars partially off the track. The railroad car, however, was routed back onto the track a short time later.

Grist was taken to Theda Clark Hospital in the Neenah ambulance and reported in satisfactory condition early this morning. According to a hospital spokesman, his injuries include chin lacerations and abrasions to the nose, arms and legs.

Status: Located; Copies sent out by Julie Grist in February, 1980.

Grams is sorting through her life once again and trying to organize the hundreds of boxes of papers and souvenirs of her life. What a job! I thought this article on great-grandpa Strite was a real treasure and am sending it to all the cousins, sons and daughters. Such an ingenious and humble man! Hope you enjoy it.

I am living with Aunt Ginny in this marvelous city and thoroughly enjoying the warm air, sunny days, rolling fog, big-citiness of it all. Am trying to find my niche in the working world. Keep your fingers crossed.

Take care,

Love,
Cousin Julie

Status: Located; On the back, Dorothy Grist writes to Virginia Grist:

This snap is sixty-one years old this June 1964. You may keep it, Ginny, if you want it.

Uncle ? (Forgot his name. It might be great-grandpa Powers), Franklin Grist, Grandma B. [Hattie Powers] (widow), Dorothy Grist, great-grandma Powers [Eliza Brimmer].

Taken in 1903 in New York State [Virginia Grist thinks it was possibly near Hoosick Falls, N.Y. Census records from 1900 confirm that Hattie was living in Petersburg, NY with her mother, Eliza, who was 74.]

Grandma B. is Grandma Burhans. She's my mother's mother.

Great-grandmother Powers was the owner of the paisley shawl sent you. She was 90 years old when this was taken. She lived some time after this as taken but I don't recall how long. My mother, Grace Grist, took this snap. Sunshine was very bright, so we frown.

-Aunt Dorothy
