    A Handmade Greeting Card from Princeton, Illinois(undated, front and back)
    Unsigned, but very likely from Nettie and/or Walter Paddock in Malden, Illinois, addressed to Walter Theodore Lett at RR 4, Mediapolis, Iowa. No written message but two small pictures of Princeton, Illinois, were glued to one side of the card (on another card in the collection, it was mentioned that the Paddocks were in Princeton). The card is round, not rectangular.

    Nettie Marie (Johnson) Paddock
    Nettie Marie (Johnson) Paddock
    Nettie Paddock (1885-1963), my grandaunt, was a daughter of Hannah Marie (Honson) and Samuel Edmond Johnson, immigrants from Sweden who settled in the United States in about 1869. Nettie was their youngest child who lived into adulthood. She married Arthur William Paddock, a native of Arkansas born in 1884. Their marriage was in 1906 and by (no later than) 1910 they were living in Malden, Illinois. Both Arthur (who died in 1939 in a house fire) and Nettie would die in Malden.
    Nettie Paddock
    Nettie Paddock
    This photographic portrait of Nettie Marie (Johnson) Paddock was likely taken in about 1920, though possibly a bit later. Nettie lived in Malden, Illinois, with her husband, Arthur William Paddock. He died in 1939 when their house caught on fire. She lived a pauper's life after that until she died in 1963. I have some vague memories of going to her home in Malden to visit when I was a child in the 1950s. She did not have electricity, which was unheard of then. Kerosene lanterns provided night light. It was a bit strange for me, having never seen anything like it before.
    Five Women of the Mediapolis, Iowa, Presbyterian Church
    Five Women of the Mediapolis, Iowa, Presbyterian Church
    The back of this photograph identifies these women as Lucille Hutchcroft, Pearl Bailey, Aunt Nettie, Mayme Shutt, and Bertha Brumm.

    More fully described, these women are: Martha "Lucille" (Vannice) Hutchcroft (1896-1979). Lucille was the wife of Clarence Arthur Hutchcroft and the grandmother of Deborah Sue Trevitt, who is married to Earl "Wayne" Lowe. (Earl is a great grandson of Charles Francis Walker, and is a maternal side relative. The others identified as relatives in this photograph are on my paternal family side.)

    Margaret "Pearl" (Burgess) Bailey (1893-1983). Pearl was married to Glenn Ruble Bailey when this photograph was taken. Later she married my grandfather, Oliver "Clayton" Brumm, after the death of his wife, Bertha (far right, she died in 1953) and the 1950 death of her husband, Glenn.

    Aunt Nettie is Nettie Marie (Johnson) Paddock (1885-1963), the daughter of Samuel Edmond and Hannah Marie (Honson) Johnson. Nettie was an aunt of Bertha Brumm (far right). She did not live in Mediapolis, and probably was visiting the day the photograph was taken.

    I don't know for certain who Mayme Shutt is, but if she is Mary Shutt and "Mayme" is a nickname, she is Mary Francis (Friedemann) Shutt (1887-1976), who is the sister of Charles Friedemann, and her brother married Ruth Ellen Brumm.

    Bertha Leota (Lett) Brumm (1893-1953) was my grandmother, the wife of Clayton Brumm.
