Dear Aunt Myrtle
I was glad to hear from you. Otis and Warren are sick. But Warren is better.
Love to all From Lois
Lois was easy to find. 1910 was a census year and there was one family in Seymour, Texas with children Lois, Warren, and Otis. The children's father was Otis E. Carter, a clergyman. Virginia E. Carter was his second wife and the stepmother to his children. Otis and Virginia were married in 1908. Her sister was Myrtle Cloud of Austin, Texas. The children's mother was Alice Doman who passed away on March 9, 1907.
