In October 1853 with his family he started for the United States, going via Paris to Harve. At the port they were detained nearly a month waiting for a vessel with which he had contracted passage. The voyage took 42 days and landed in New York January 1854. Due to the severe winter of 1853-4 the family remained about 6 months in Williamsburg N.Y.. September 1854 they reached Delphos Ohio and made this their home.

16: STRANGER IN A BOX Anonymous Come, look with me inside this drawer In this box I've often seen, At the pictures, black and white, Faces proud, still, and serene. I wish I knew the people, Theses strangers in the box, Their names and all their memories, Are lost among my socks. I wonder what their lives were like, How did they spend their days? What about their special times? I'll never know their ways. If only someone had taken time, To tell, who,what, where and when, These face of my heritage, Would come alive again Could this become the fate, Of the pictures we take today? The faces and the memories, Someday to be passed away? Take time to save your stories, Seize the opportunity when it knocks, Or someday you and yours, Could be strangers in the box | believed to be John H Trame photo postcard back inscribed John Henry Trame

25: Colon Michigan, St Joseph County Michigan The founding of the community began 1829. St Joseph County was described as the best county in the state "..the soil is exceedingly fertile, and consists principally of oak openings, and prairies with innumerable water privileges." The village of Colon lies between Palmer Lake and Sturgeon Lake. Colon grew and developed much the same as other rural Michigan communities. By 1889 Colon had a Doctor, a Druggiest, flour mill, tannery, canning factory, a machine shop for repairing windmills, 2 good hotels, a daily stage to Leonidas, and railroad links to major cities of Michigan, Indiana, and Illinois. By 1903 another industry had come to town, a the Lambs Knit knitting factory. Men of the community worked in the factory producing the woven materials, while the women did piece work at home sewing the gloves and mittens together. Colon became known as the Magic Capital of the world after Harry Blackstone, a prominent magician, in 1926 bought Angel Island in Sturgeon Lake as the summer residence for him and his crew to refit equipment, build new effects and relax during the off season. Blackstone invited Australian magician/ventriloquist Percy Abbott to Colon and the two founded what was to become the largest magic manufacturing company in the world. A monument to Harry Blackstone resides in Lakeside Cemetery.
