Wish you were here on my birthday. Papa gave me $10 and mama made me a nice large kite, a baseball suit, a wading suit, candy, and a birthday cake with ice cream. I flew my kite all after noon & had a lot of fun –

Dear Grandma
Something all rolled up came from Connersville this morning. Santa will open it tomorrow night.
Yours
Willard


In 1910, Willard was only 3 years old. It is likely that the postcard (and the one posted yesterday) were written by Willard’s father, Huston Hackleman.

Dear Folks: – We are expecting Grandma Miller today. J. Jr. wants an automobile (big one), bicycle, and a box of chocolates. I wonder if she’ll bring all of them.

Yours Huston


Huston’s first wife was Elizabeth Irene “Bessie” Miller. They were married on 25 April 1906 in her hometown of McGregor, Clayton County, Iowa. They had one son, Willard Wesley Hackleman, who was born in the spring of 1907. Six months later, in October, Bessie died suddenly while they were visiting family in Iowa. John Carl Hackleman, Huston’s brother, lived with the family in Appleton for many years. In Huston’s postcard, J. Jr. could possibly be his son, Willard, or his brother, John Carl!
