Recently went to an estate sale, and found a treasure trove of Covert information and pictures. Collection that was orriginaly in Farrer-Shattuck families. Wish Pearl was here to enjoy this. I dont want to sell the treasures, but will donate them. I am in contact with a dec. of William Justus Shattuck and will send her a lot of her family pictures. Could post some of them. Live a hop and spit from covert....Below is "Birdseye View of Covert, MI" not dated. .Daundra
