I lived in Carter, Wisc. from 1946 to 1951 in the Home of Samuel Russell Collins. I remember the Post Office in Carter. The Miner Town on the Southeast side of Carter. Charley French Tavern on Highway 32. Lakeview Cemetery, where I picked blackberries at the back of the cemetery with my grandparents (James & Calista Shepard). I attended school in Wabeno until we moved to Shawano, Wisc in 1951. I have some photos of our family in Carter. I also havethe story of the man who murdered Violet Snow in the Collins house in 1930’s and his capture. I am willing to share this information and photos. I am also looking for any other information and photos of Carter and/or residents. Thank you!

My mother and her family lived in the Crandon area in the early 1900’s to approximately 1927 Her Father was Millard Lee Lowe. He worked in the logging mills. His oldest daughter (My aunt) Olive Mae Lowe Sturm had a collection of postcards that were handed down to me after she died. The postcards were dated from the early 1900’s and on. They are postmarked from Crandon, Elton, Parrish, Polar and other towns. I would be glad to share these with your society. I have them on a flash drive. I have managed to return a couple of the postcards to family members of those that sent them. I would like to be able to return more to other families.
Millard moved to Polor Wisconsin in 1900 from Olive Hill, Carter Co., Kentucky. Hope to hear from you.
