While trying to find info on a hard to find family name, Samuel Oatzes,I found post cards sent between he and his wife before and after they were married. Through these cards I learned that her maiden name was Cecelia Sroufe. The ledgible post marks for SROUFE started in 1921 and were OATZES by 1923. The cards that were sent before they were married were mostly from Battle Creek and Kalamazoo, MI. The later cards were from and to Kimmel, Huntington and Syracuse IN. There were also cards to her from a brother Wesley and a neice Lena. My grandmother thinks that Cecelia was Samuels 2nd wife and they lived in Syracuse when she knew them. She remembers a son ,Sam but I do not know from what marriage. Samuel died in 1960. I have no information on her and have had alot of trouble finding any Oatzes anywhere. I would appreciate any help and would be glad to share copies of the cards with any family.
