My grandfather sent this same postcard to my grandmother in 1918 on his way to Fort Custer, Battle Creek, Mi. He was en route ultimately to France to serve this great country in WWI. Any info on the steamer Ossifrage, its service route, and ultimate disposition would be appreciated. Jim

My grandmother immigrated to the US, arriving in Detroit Michigan in 1913, on the Ossifrage from Chatham Ontario, a trip of about 50 miles. I don't know what other routes this ship might have been used on.
