BIOGRAPHY
David Cooper's recollection of Ivah Calhoun...  as a child David Cooper would stop each morning before school and pick up Ivah's mail for $0.10 per day and deliver it to her home on the northeast corner of 3rd and North Street.  Ivah later raised this to a flat $1.00 per week.  In addition to money received, Ivah made breakfast each Saturday morning for him.  Fast forward 25 years just prior to Wendall's death; Wendall, her son, recalls how much Ivah looked foward to Saturday mornings and David's company.  David also recalls Ivah saying that many of the women congregated in the home on the southwest corner of 2nd and North Street the day of the 1925 fire that destroyed the business district of Ostrander where they cooked egg sandwiches and supplied water to those fighting the flames.  Although unimportant, David Cooper recalls that Ivah's desk was always well-supplied with pens that wrote in green ink.  Ivah always used green ink.

J. Calvin Calhoun and Ivah Ebert became members of Ostrander Presbyterian Church by letter on Jan 14, 1923.  He as an Elder from 1929 to 1937.  (31)
