suppose you think we wer disapeared by this time since we haven’t written but we have been kind of busy for some time Have been at our new place two weeks now + I like it first rate, tho it was rather dirty when we came here.  The owner of the place is going to have the house fixed some this spring it will be one muss all the time.

Update from MJM:
The 1910 census shows Jenny Moster living at 3614 5th Ave South in Minneapolis. Jennie was 19 years old then and shown as niece to the head of household, Edward and Rose Goodrich. Although the name was indexed as Moster, it is most likely Mostu. Jennie Mostu was born 22 Aug 1890 to Ole and Mary Mostu. In 1895 the family was living in Madlia Village, Watonwan, MN. Father Ole A Mostu, mother Mary Mostu, and siblings Clara, Oscar, Rosa, Carl, Jennie, and Otto Mostu. Sibling Clara Mostu (1882-1958) married Theodore L Carlson (1881-1946). Sister Jennie Mostu (1890-1974) married Fay A Butts (1889-1959). The Mostu names have been indexed with several variations; Moster, Master, Mostu, Mastu.

  1. On the 1910 census living at the address on the post card, I found a Jenny Moster age 19. She was listed as niece, and living with Edward and Rose Goodrich. The Moster name may in fact be Mostu instead. I found it indexed both ways on other census records and MN birth records. On the 1900 census the Mostu/Moster family was living in Watonwan County, MN. Father Ole, mother Mary, and children; Clara (writer of the postcard), Oscar, Rosy, Carl, Jennie (recipient of postcard), Arthur, and Edward. I have not been able to find a marriage record for Clara to determine what her married name might be.
