    Notes 
    • My name is Fran Johnson and I work on the family tree and it many branches in my family. I also like to help others with information for their family trees.
      I like reading Dallas County Texas Archives. They have a page call Santa's Letter Box. These letters were written by children in 1899 and 1900 and printed in the Dallas Morning News. I came across Marie and Verne's letter. I researched the Rootsweb site and found your family. I believe these children are in your family and I am sending the letters to you. These letters were printed on December 14, 1900 and read:
      (presumably Dallas, Dallas To., Tex.) Dear Santa Claus: Although I am a little 5 year old boy, I am a good one for I can read in my first reader and can write, as you can see, but my mama has to spell all the big words. Now, Santa Claus, please bring me a desk and blackboard, a book, a horn, some caps for my pistol, a pair of bridles to play horse with, and a popgun, and anything else you think is good and pretty for a little boy of my size. Now, Santa Claus, I will tell you something about my two little sisters. Marie Louise who is 3 years old, you already know. She says she will write you herself so please bring her what she wants. But now I have the sweetest little baby sister you ever saw and she can't write you. She is only 8 months old and her name is Aurelia. So please look out for her little stocking and put some pretty rubber toys in it.
      Fill our stockings with goodies and some fire crackers and we will be good children all next year. Bring mama and papa something nice and also The Dallas News for giving you our letters. Good-by until next year. Your little boy,
      Verne Harrell
