West Michigan Man Finds Bundle Of Love Letters In Attic

Posted: Updated:

A west Michigan man was working on insulating his attic when he found hundreds of lost love letters.

He also found birth and marriage certificates of the family they belonged to.

His first move: turn to Facebook.

The decades-old letters were found inside a cottage in Casnovia, on the border of Muskegon and Kent counties.

The man who found them got a reply within four hours of his social media search.

 It came from the granddaughter of William Kissel, the man who wrote the letters.

 The family says it's a chance for them to get to know their family members who they knew very little about.

The family says the letters were written before Kissel was married.

 It's still not known how the letters and documents ended up inside the cottage.
