90-Year-Old Love Letters Found in Attic

From the Grand Rapids [Michigan] Press:

Happy Valentine’s Day … from Joel and Liz Leo’s attic.

That’s where they unearthed 44 letters written in the days following World War I that demonstrate an uncommon love between Mildred Terrell and George C. Ohland.

Both are long gone but, in resurrecting some of their legacy, they give us a peek into courtship circa 1918-19, and remind us that perhaps nothing is as binding and beautiful as love…

The Leos are researching the Ohland and Terrell family trees in an attempt to place the letters in the hands of deserving descendants. Their preliminary findings show the Ohlands possibly had two sons — George T. and Otto. There also is evidence of possible grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
