Relatives of couple named on 1945 letter sought

MUSKEGON, Mich. (AP) — Postal officials in western Michigan are searching for relatives of a Muskegon couple to whom a recently found World War II-era letter was mailed nearly 70 years ago.

The Muskegon Chronicle reports (http://bit.ly/1jI2ez1 ) Wednesday that the letter bears an Army Post Office postmark from 1945 and was addressed to "Mr. and Mrs. Sensabaugh" on Washington Avenue.

Sgt. Myron C. Cook's name was listed as the sender. He was based in New York.

Postmaster William Rowe says it appears someone in Minnesota recently mailed the letter again. A 2013 postmark from Minneapolis was stamped over the original postmark. The letter also appears to never have been opened.

Historian Richard Mullally has documented Muskegon County World War II veterans and plans to do research on the names.
