Dear Bro Jess, Just a postal to let you know Lou got letter and contents ok yesterday and will forward same M or will write Monday.  Glad to hear you are getting along fine, we are nicely settled in our new home and like it fine.  How do like the looks of the bunch, will send you some postals later.  Best Wishes from Lou and Myself  Your sister Sadie

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. I wasn't able to find either party.

  2. This one seems easier to find than it is turning out to be...

    Wonder if Estherville was big enough to have a "city" directory back then. Either that, or perhaps Sadie's over-written letter "c" for her brother's surname is misleading us. Tried several approaches, but nothing here, either :(

  3. I think the last letter could be 'y' for Recoy. I have found plenty of Recoy names, but not a for sure match. I haven't yet connected a Sadie from the Hutchinson/McLeod county area, though there are a few of those, as well.
