One of those affected was desperate to receive a $900 check in December 2007. The letter just arrived on Thursday.
"I got mail today from 2007. Paychecks, things like that that I needed. Stuff from the Social Security Administration, I.R.S.," resident Kevin Carpenter said.
Carpenter asked the worker he knew as "Dave the mailman" to be on the lookout for the check.
"I asked Dave and Dave said he hadn't seen it, but as soon as he got it, he would call me," Carpenter explained.
Some of mail found in the postal carrier's home dated back to 1997.
