Myrtle Garavanta was the Davenport Postmistress

Does anyone remember Myrtle Garavanta? Do you have a photo of Myrtle? What happened to her collection of photographs and letters and memorabilia?

Robin Caldwell says:

Myrtle was the daughter of Norman Edward and the granddaughter of Charles Edward Steele. She was the postmistress in Davenport for about 25 yrs. She had all of the genealogy and many old family photos. She was the only connection our family ever had with the California Steeles. She shared many pictures and letters from the Ohio families with us after my father met her in about 1974. Myrtle didn’t have children so I don’t know what became of her collection, but it was a treasure.
