My paternal grandfather, Leonard C. Anderson, loved to write songs and poetry. One song was actually put to music and released (that's a story for another post).
Most of his writings are on plain white paper, written in tiny pencil writing - there are at least a hundred of them. Unfortunately many of them are not dated, but then there are some which are and these could be very telling as to what was happening in his world during the days listed.
Among the pile I also came across some that were typed and behold, we also have the typewriter! This typewriter was made by Underwood at my best guess sometime in the 1920s or early 1930s (honestly I've not done much research on it). It has it's own case which snaps on and has a little slide latch on the front, and at one time had a handle for easy carrying.
CAN YOU HELP ME FIND THEM? This blogger is searching for a couple of specific people, maybe you can help me find them:
A cousin, her maiden name was Brenda Anderson. Brenda was born in 1960 in Maryland. She is the daughter of Russell Keener Anderson and Peggy.
My Uncle (or any descendants of) Hugh Bellew. Last heard from sometime in late 1950s, believe to be in the Chicago area at that time. Born in 1916 in Preston, Lancashire England. Came to the US, grew up in Rhode Island and Massachusetts. Hugh's parents were John and Margaret Bellew and he had two brothers in the US, Al and William.
If you have information about either of these family members please get in touch with me!
