Dear Friend Bertha, Am sorry I did not get to see you before I left.  Am sending this postal to you as a remembrance, If you have any left of yours, please send me one too. I like it real well here. Mrs. E.H.Mueller
The Postcard was mailed to Mr and Mrs. John Luepke Jr. Parkston S Dak
Thanks for stopping by.  Do come again.

Update from Iggy:
Emil Heinrich\Henry Mueller (14 Dec 1889 - 18 Aug 1981 in Orange County, California) married Leontina Magdelena Winters (11/15/1896 - 01/08/1984) in 1916.

The 1930 US Census shows them living in Rock Rapids, Lyon, Iowa. The town of Parkston, ND was settled by a large Mueller family (the patriarch had 13 children!)

Emil was born in Hutchinson County, SD, for which Parkston is the County seat. His parents were Daniel Mueller and Rosina Klaus.

  1. Looking at the I in Iona, and the "H" in Edmund, I think the man's name was actually Edmund M. Mueller.

    Rev Edmund Martin Mueller (Sep. 17, 1896 - Oct. 6, 1999) His Find A Grave memorial has an extensive obituary complete with Iowa connection. Find A Grave Memorial# 101267378.

    "The following August 10 [1924], he married Martha Pietz in Salem Lutheran in Parkston." She is Find A Grave Find A Grave Memorial# 65902980.

    Of Mr. and Mrs. John Luepke Jr., I can't locate them --

    2. I am not sold...perhaps a brother? The date on the postcard indicates an earlier wedding date for this couple:)
