      Christmas Comes Early to the Cedar Rapids Children's Home
      By Lynne Jordan

      Mrs. Joseph Cartwright celebrated Christmas Friday because her 15 children will be visiting friends in Christmas day.

      Mrs. Cartwright is the resident director of the Children's Home of Cedar Rapids and her 15 youngsters have all been invited to spend Christmas eve and Christmas day with families in the area.

      We have our Christmas early here and if you have never had an exciting Christmas, this is the place to be," said Mrs. Cartwright.

      An early Christmas present joined Mrs. Cartwright at her desk just inside the door of the Home. The present, named Nellie, was a five-month-old German shepherd puppy presented to the children by a Cornell college social group.

      All Had Fun

      "Nellie, named for Cornell, was brought to us by the social group that gave a party for the children Monday evening. The boys and their dates gave a candlelight dinner and the children were simply delighted with it.

      "About 10:30 that evening, the boys arrived with Nellie, then came back Tuesday morning and had breakfast with the children. It was hard to tell whether the children or the college men enjoyed the party and Nellie more," related Mrs. Cartwright.

      At this point, the door opened to two small boys with arms full of toys and games, followed by their mother. The toys were presents to the children that the boys had chosen themselves.

      Santa is Generous

      "People are wonderful," said Mrs. Cartwright when the boys had left. "They bring toys and games and clothing to us and we have a wonderful time deciding which gifts to give each child. The children receive nearly everything they ask for in their letters to Santa."

      Toys were a large part of the Christmas party Friday. The party was given for the children and their families, or the families which invited them for Christmas. Dinner was followed by a program presented by the children. Then Santa arrived loaded with presents.

      "We have it at 6:30 because the children simply can't wait any longer. Each dormitory has a party, too, for family gifts and a more private time. This winds up a whole week of parties for the children," she explained.

      Two Years

      Mrs. Cartwright, who is a native of Osceola, came to the Home two years ago last April as resident director. "I love children," she said, "and was looking for a position that would allow me to be with my husband most of he time. This was the perfect place and we both love every minute of it."

      The Cartwrights have a farm in Clarke county, where they farmed until 1959. Mr. Cartwright's health made it necessary for them to move, and they came to Marion.

      "We thought we would try an employment agency before leaving Marion, and when they discovered that I had taught elementary school in Osceola and was interested in the foster home plan, they suggested this position," she recalled.

      "If I had known all that was involved, I might have been too frightened to accept, but I didn't know and have found it the most wonderful place in the world."

      The phone rang, and Mrs. Cartwright consulted the letter to Santa written by the boy the caller was having as a guest for Christmas.

      "We never ask the people to give gifts to the children they have in their homes," she said. "We think that having a special friend is enough, but the hosts always want to present the children gifts. They are just wonderful about it."

      Varied Duties

      Mrs. Cartwright's duties at the Home include hiring and supervising the staff, training sessions for the staff, menu-planning, and deciding, with the social worker, Mrs. Herdis Snyder, whether the home is the best place for a child and if there is adequate room for him.

      "Actually, it's just like a home, but on a large scale," she explained. "We have to make dental and medical appointments for the children, order food and clothing, see that the Home is kept in order, and listen to the problems and the achievements of the children."

      A small boy ran into the room to give Mrs. Cartwright a hug and tell her his models were all put together. He proudly informed her that he was going to take advantage of the bubble bath he had received.

      Crave Advice

      When the young man had left, Mrs. Cartwright said "You know, they have a housemother in each dorm, but they love to come tell Mrs. Snyder and me things that have happened to them, both good and bad. Even if we tell them the same thing the housemother does, it makes them realize that we care about them."

      As if to prove this point, a teen-age girl came to show Mrs. Cartwright a doll she was dressing for a group of retarded children. The sleeve was too big, and Mrs. Cartwright showed her how to make it fit.

      "These children need a lot of love and attention," she explained, "and we are fortunate enough to have the right number of children for our staff. I remember that when I came here, we had 15 small children, in addition to many more older ones. It was heartbreaking because we just didn't have time to give them all the love they needed -- and that we wanted to give."

      From 7 to 15

      The 15 children now in the Home range in age from seven to 15, with eight girls and seven boys. They are assigned to dormitories on the basis of personalities and emotional needs, rather than age.

      Mr. and Mrs. Cartwright have a daughter, Mrs. Carl Anderson, 1251 Washington drive, Marion, and two granddaughters with whom they will celebrate Christmas.

      Mrs. Cartwright summed up her feelings by saying, "You are never lonely here, nor do you have time to worry about what you NOT doing. There are a lot of problems, but the children don't all get upset at once, so it can be handled. We miss them when they leave. but the feeling that they have gone on to something good, in an adoptive or foster home, or back to their own homes, is wonderful. There couldn't be a more rewarding life."

    Personal Recollection 
    • C.P. Walker by Doris Frizzell Cartwright

      The following, regarding my Grandfather, Charles Percy Walker, was told to my family by my Mother, Grandpa's daughter Everna.

      Shortly before his death he called Mother into his room and told her this story;... ...

      After enlisting in the Union army he became very disturbed by the hard drinking of his superior officer. At sometime during that period Grandpa deserted and joined another company as Charles Percy. I do not know when this happened but have a feeling it might have been when he was sent to Chicago from Kansas with rebel prisoners. He received his honorable discharge as Charles Percy.

      He told Mother he had never cashed any of his pension checks, that they were at the back of his closet tied in a red handkerchief. He was afraid it might start an investigation which would embarrass his family. I do not believe they were aware of any of this. I know they didn't know he was not cashing his checks. He told her after he was gone they could do as they wished with the checks. Mother brought them home with her to Garden Grove, Iowa, and with the help of our town lawyer and an old family friend, who was at that time a United States senator, she was able to get the checks cashed and also to obtain a widows pension for our blind Grandma Sally.

      While writing this I began wondering how much pension a Civil War veteran recieved per month. Guess that will be my next project!

      Grandpa died March 8, 1922.

    The 'Walker Homestead'
    The "Walker Homestead"
    Marge Kimble calls the house in the photograph the "Walker Homestead." It was the home of Charles Pearsey Walker in the 19th century, built in 1903 by Samuel Dotson (1858-1931). It was later the home of Samuel Nathaniel "Sam" Walker when Charles moved to a smaller home on his property.

    Several of the people in the photograph can be positively identified, and several others inspire some educated guessing.

    The woman on the left, with the horse, by all rights should probably be Hattie Mae "Harriet" (Moyers) Walker. But she doesn't look anything like the other photographs of Hattie. At the moment she is an intriguing mystery. The man second from the left is Samuel Nathaniel "Sam" Walker.

    The woman sitting in the chair is Everna Ida "Vernie" (Walker) Frizzell. I believe some of the four children are probably hers, and it would seem likely the man sitting with the youngest child is likely her husband, Eli Frizzell. By 1906, which is the date that was written on the back of the photograph, Vernie and Eli six children. Sam and Hattie Walker had seven.

    The couple on the right in the back do not seem to match in any sense faces of people who are already identified.

    General Newsprint Marion News
    A short report that the families of Samuel Clinton Walker and William David Walker were attending a family reunion in Ottumwa, Iowa; Also that Jerry Dean Walker was leaving town to attend Southern Methodist University.

    The reunion in Ottumwa, Iowa, puzzled me until I spoke to Marge Kimble regarding it. She replied that there were frequent reunions held in Ottumwa because the extended families of the Frizzells (mostly around Osceola and Woodbine, Iowa) and of Sam and Reil Walker (around Morning Sun and Wapello, Iowa) determined it was about a half-way point between the two regions of Iowa, saving traveling time that would be required if they were held in either of the actual locations. She also reckons that this reunion in 1955 was likely about the last one the two sets of family held in Ottumwa.

    I imagine a number of photographs of family reunions that are posted here probably were taken in Ottumwa. (At least one living or private individual is linked to this item - Details withheld.)
