From the Wood County Times [Nekoosa, Wood Co., Wisconsin], 28 October 1909. I am indexing the Wood County Times and thought this might be of interest to descendants of Walter Moldenhauer.

"Farmer Boy Builds Flying Machine"

Walter Moldenhauer, a farmer boy near Granton, Clark County, is at work on a flying machine of the monoplane type. The parts are now about ready to be assembled and he recently received a four-cylinder 16-horsepower gasoline engine to furnish the power for the flying machine.

Mr. Moldenhauer is quite a mechanic, having already built a motor cycle and an automobile for his own use.
