William Fleming and his wife Nancy Ann (Leigh) homesteaded a quarter section of land south of Beaver City on a hillside overlooking to the south the Sappa river valley. The homestead became known as Sunny Slope Farm to the family members.
The original house was a sod house built into the side of the hill. A wooden house was constructed after the turn of the century.
They had five boys and one girl. William, Pierce, Seigel, James, and John. The girl was named Lulu. All of them were born before the family came to Nebraska from Illinois, by the way of Kansas.
One of the boys, William S. Fleming eventually bought the homestead. The other four boys settled in the Wilsonville area and all lived out their lives there with the exception of John who moved to Washington state.
