Republican News Hamilton Ohio June 29, 1914

"Little Miss Margaret Moorehead of St. Louis, daughter of the Reverend and Mrs. John Moorehead, has come to spend the summer months with Mr. and Mrs. J.L. Blair, of North Seventh Street."
It seems the habit of shipping Margaret off to one place or another started when she was very young.  At the point she was shipped off for the summer in Hamilton, Ohio she was 8 years old.  It makes me wonder what the issue was and why you would send your child to unrelated individuals for an entire summer.  I know I spent a couple of weeks each summer with my grandparents but this just seems odd.
