My Ancestry-Tragedy Strikes

I’ve often been curious about certain ‘stories’ passed down. Here’s one that still remains a mystery. I’ll be posting several articles of the next few weeks about this particular mystery and my thoughts.

Today, however, I won’t say much as this newspaper article from a November 1925 Benzie Banner says a lot. For those of you who are wondering, this story is from my mom’s side. The man, Seth Coleman Gates, is my Grandma Jerome’s grandfather.

This photo was taken by a distant cousin who is as curious about these mysteries as I am. You’ll have to click on the picture and then click again to get it magnified.
