'The Drive' Iowa State Hospital, Mt. Pleasant, Iowa
"The Drive" Iowa State Hospital, Mt. Pleasant, Iowa
This postcard features the grounds near what was the state insane asylum in Mount Pleasant, Iowa. It was, I believe, intentionally laid back from the main road in a peaceful setting. As a junior in high school (1968 or 1969) my Sociology class at high school toured the facility, as well as the prison in Fort Madison, Iowa, and at that time I could offer the assessment that neither were joyous or even bearable institutions.

Walker (Samuel Nathaniel), Rural Route 2, Wapello, Iowa, from Pr7 Paul M. Walker, 423 ru. B Sq. AA7, Wilmington, NC. He drew a sailor (apparently) and wrote the message, "Ahoy!!

A Deed for Land Transferred from Andrew Stone to Samuel Fortner
A Deed for Land Transferred from Andrew Stone to Samuel Fortner
This document is a hand written acknowledgment of transfer of property in 1849 between Andrew Stone and Samuel Fortner, with a note from Thomas "Tom" Walker (son of Charles Pearsey Walker) on it referring to its origins in Knoxville, Iowa. This would most likely be Samuel Fortner who was the grandfather of Roy Grant Fortner (who married Maude Mae (Walker) Umphrey).

Provided by Marge Kimble, it is not clear how this document fell into the possession of our immediate family, but likely Roy had something to do with that.

A Descendancy Chart of Ernst Brumm (born 1874) of Sternenfels, Württemberg
A Descendancy Chart of Ernst Brumm (born 1874) of Sternenfels, Württemberg
My paternal Brumm family emigrated to the United States from a small town named Sternenfels in what used to be the duchy of Württemberg, presently the state of Baden-Württemberg in the federal republic of Germany.

There are still a number of Brumms living there today, whom I imagine are my relatives (even in Germany Brumm is not a particularly common name), although I have no connections presently to these people. I am always hopeful that some day such connections will be made.

I came upon this descendancy chart of Ernst Brumm of Sternenfels in one of my online research forays. He was born in 1874. (Note: this document is in .pdf format.)

A Graduation Congratulations Card From Helen Laverne (Brumm/Wuellner) and Edgar A. "Ed" Dressler to Dennis William Brumm
This was probably sent in about May 1970. Dennis graduated from New London High School (Iowa) in May 1970. The message of the card is, "Congratulations from Both of Us. With Best Wishes on your Grauation. This brings our warmest wishes, On your Graduation Day. For more good luck and happiness, Than words could start to say... With it come Congratulations, And a note to tell you, too, We're hoping that the future, Will bring all your wishes true."

The card is round, not rectangular.

A Land Grant From President Andrew Jackson to a Nathaniel Fox in 1831
A Land Grant From President Andrew Jackson to a Nathaniel Fox in 1831
This document was sold on eBay in the year 2000. It is a grant of land in Ohio given to a "Nathaniel Fox" by President Andrew Jackson as payment for services rendered during the War of 1812. Although this land would not have been given to my second great grandfather, the Nathaniel Fox who married Kitturah McFarland in my family tree, it could have been granted his father, who was also Nathaniel Fox. It has potential as a family document, but is unproven.

A Letter From an Unknown Person to 'Friends'
A Letter From an Unknown Person to "Friends"
Marge Kimble provided the scan of this partial letter, written in Winona, Minnesota, March 2, 1856. It apparently was to the family of Francis Samuel "Sam" Walker, but the greeting of the letter is to "Dear Friends." Four pages long, it is not complete. The letter is encouraging further settlement in Minnesota, despite its apparent reputation at the time of being dangerous during the winter months. No family members of the Walker family are known to have settled in Winona or in Minnesota at this time period. (Note: this document is in .pdf format.)

A Letter From Anna Justine Mahler (June 15, 1904–June 3, 1988) to Dennis William Brumm
A Letter From Anna Justine Mahler (June 15, 1904–June 3, 1988) to Dennis William Brumm
Anna Mahler, the daughter of Austrian 19th/20th century composer Gustav Mahler, wrote me a letter about a year or two before she died in 1988. This was in answer to an invitation to visit San Francisco and come to a party where two friends of mine (Mahler aficionados) were "unveiling" a painting of her father which they had commissioned by a local artist friend of theirs. The scheme was to bring her here and surprise them.

A strange series of coincidences right before their party had transpired which put me in contact with Ms. Mahler. The photograph of her below was taken in the 1930s.

The text of the Letter:

13 June

Dear Mr. Brumm

My friend Harry Freidenberg told me about your kind invitation to San Francisko. I am sorry I never got it.

Maybe you could be kind enough to send me a snapshot of the head of Mahler you are unveiling.

Many thanks.

Yours,
Anna Mahler

More biogrphical data about Anna Mahler:


ANNA MAHLER (1904-1988)
sculptress & Alma's second daughter

Anna ("Gucki") Mahler lost her father, Gustav Mahler, at the early age of seven, and thereafter shared the inconstant life of her mother, Alma. As a small child, she would sit for hours in Oskar Kokoschka's studio (Oskar was one of Alma's lovers), watching him painting "The Bride of the Wind." Walter Gropius (her mother's lover and later one of her husbands) and Franz Werfel (ditto) became her stepfathers. Frequent changes of place, coupled with Alma's changing friendships, characterized her youth. After showing an initial interest in music, Anna became a painter and sculptress and, in 1937, was awarded the "Grand Prix" at the Paris World Fair for her sculpture "Female Nude." In 1938 she emigrated to London, which meant, above all, a painful end of her close attachment to her mother's pitiful third husband, Franz Werfel.

Anna lived in Los Angeles by about the 1930s; many of her sculptures are featured prominently in different places in L. A.
