Submitted by: Sara Dianne Austin Myers
Post Card dated July 17, 1909, was sent to Mrs. George Root, Mulliken, MI.
(Florence Elma Ervay-Root) from her brother, Zeph D. Ervay.
Zeph D. Ervay made up his mind
go into the livery stable
hustled around and sold his stock
fast as he was able,
got rid of his horses, cattle and hogs.
He didnít know what to do
he hunted around until Dean was found
got rid of his dollars too.
go into a thing like that they said
surely had no sense.
he proved it square that he had his share
what is called common sense.
went to Spring Port, so goes the report
brought horses, buggies and sled.
there he has stuck by the fire of mere pluck
will stick until he is dead.
And there heíll stick till heís dead.
Poem By: Florence Elma (Ervay) Root (no year and no name for poem) written about her brother Zeph D. Ervay when he went into the livery stable business with someone named Dean. Dean who?? I donít know.
