More about the photo: John writes: In 1939 our Leelanau house was about 40 or 45 years old.
It has been through a lot of Michigan winters. The Honke family owned the house back then , I assume one of them took this photograph
. He also has a photo of the Honke Family in front of the house in 1918.

    I am trying to find out if there was a Korean war vet from Northport who lost a leg or legs. He lived on the corner of the first street past the bridge in Northport. Is there anybody who remembers him or has any knowledge of him?
