This is a postcard photo of Jesse Hinman. I don't know a lot about Jesse, just that he was related to my grandmother, Laura Hinman Morris. This postcard was sent to her and postmarked in Oct 1919. I can't read the day.

The mystery of Jesse goes further. After my grandmother married, he came by in his new car to visit her in Concord, IL. He left her house and was never seen, nor heard from again. Later, his car was found abandoned. Many think Jesse ran away. They contend his wife was a shrew and that he was totally under her control. Jesse had three small children at the time he disappeared. My grandmother thinks someone killed him for the car.
