Funeral Services Held Here For W. H. Bayer
 
Monday morning the body of William H. Bayer, a former Hooper
resident, was brought here from Crookston, and that afternoon
funeral services were held from the Wollmer & Warne funeral home,
the religious rites being conducted by Rev. W. W. Alexander, pastor
of Grace Lutheran church. Interment was made in the Logan cemetery
beside the remains of his mother who died in 1907.
 
The death of Mr. Bayer occurred Saturday afternoon, September 5, at
a Valentine hospital and followed a number of years of failing
health. At the time of his death he had attained the age of 54
years, 5 months and 29 days.
 
William Henry Bayer, son of Henry and Christena Bayer, was born
March 6, 1882, on a farm west of Oakland. In early childhood he
moved with the family to Pender where he grew to young manhood.  As
a young man he learned the tinner's trade and as such had
employment with A. H. Harms in the early 1900's. He also followed
this line of work at Crofton and Leigh. While he never made his
home in Hooper for any great length of time, he, however, had many
friends here among the older residents of the place and also has
many relatives in this locality. On January l3, 1912, he was united
in marriage at O'Niell to Miss Orpha Anderson. To this union two
children were born, both of whom died in infancy. In 1921 they
settled on a farm near Mission, S. D. but due to failing health he
was compelled to retire from farm life and he and Mrs. Bayer then
took up their home at Crookston, which was his home at the time of
his death.
 
Besides his wife, he is survived by his father, Henry Bayer, of
Omaha, and the following sisters and brother, Mrs. George Whistler,
of Crofton, Mrs. Will Murray of Pender, Mrs. W. M.  Zellers and
Mrs. Martha Schwab of Fremont, Mrs. Ord Fenton of Denver, Colo.,

Obituary
 
The Hooper 
October 3, 1918
 
After lingering ten days following an operation, which, at first
was thought would prove successful, for cancer of the stomach.
Henry Bohling passed away at his farm home northeast of Hooper,
Monday morning, September 30, at 6:30 o'clock. Mr Bohling had been
suffering from the disease of which he died for some time before
the operation was performed, and while able to attend to his farm
duties for a good deal of the time, yet his health was broken and
his sufferings keen. Deceased was born in Germany, May 1, 1862 and
came to this country and to this state when a youth of 15.  At
first he was with his brother, later serving out among farmers.
But by hard work and perseverance he became a land holder in his
own name and one of the most substantial farmers in the county.
 
He was married April 10 nearly 31 years ago to Miss Caroline
Siebuhr, who with the twelve children born to their union, survive
him, mourning the loss of the kind husband and father who passed
away at the comparatively young age of 56.  The children are:
Mesdames Emma Katt, Henry Prigge, and Wm. Katt all of Washington
county; Henry, Dora, Lena, Alina, Lois, Adolph, Willie, Otto, and
Emil, at home.  He is also survived by one brother in this country,
Fred Bohling of Lyons.
 
During his many years residence in this vicinity, Mr. Bohling had
formed a large acquaintanceship, and his demise is keenly felt by
all. He was a true friend, a helpful neighbor and a good citizen.
 
Funeral services will be held this afternoon from the home at 12
o'clock followed by church services at the Winslow Lutheran church,
Rev. J. W. Gerdes having charge.  Interment will be in Hooper
cemetery.

Loses Life in Runaway
 
The following taken from the Osmond (Nebr.) Republican gives the
details of the accident which resulted in the death of Alfred, the
16 year-old son of Henry Boschult, whose funeral was held last
Thursday at the Logan Creek church: "Monday evening the people of
this community were shocked to learn that Henry Boschult's son,
Alfred, had been killed in a runaway.  The accident occurred at
3:30 in the afternoon, and the facts as we have them from the
brothers of the dead boy are as follows; Alfred and his brother,
Wilbur, were in the same field shucking. Alfred had reached the end
of the field and was standing on the side of his wagon getting
ready to turn around when he saw his brother's team tearing down
the field toward him.  As they got opposite his wagon he reached
out to stop them, but as he grabbed at them his shucking peg caught
in one of the hames of the runaways and he was jerked under them.
 
"In the meantime his own team ran away, and before he could get out
of the way both wagons had passed over him.  He got onto his feet
and walked a distance and at first it was thought that he was not
badly hurt, but he was injured internally and died at 6 o'clock the
same evening.
 
"Rev. High of the Randolph M. E. church conducted brief funeral
services at the house Tuesday.  The remains were taken to the old
home near Winslow, where Alfred was laid to rest by the side of his
mother, who was called to the Great Beyond last spring.
 
"Had Alfred lived until the 23rd of this month he would have been
sixteen years of age.
 
"The Boschult family, who moved here last spring from Dodge county,
have the sympathy of the entire community".

From Historical Sketch of Logan Mills Community By R. L. Briggs
 
A. C. Briggs was born at Plymouth Vermont, Sept. 12, 1812, the
eldest of a family of five. At 20 moved with his father to
Kalamazoo County, Mich. Selecting the occupation of a carpenter.

half of this flock were lost by drifting snow. He bought and
improved 320 acres of good Iowa land.
 
In the year 1861 he came to Logan, Nebraska, and bought half
interest in the Logan Mills.
 
From "The Nebraskan": 
 
"In 1861 he was in the midst of the Indian scare, his wife, who had
not then moved to Nebraska heard that her husband with other
frontiersmen had been murdered but the glad tidings of safety and
'false alarm' was received in a few days and there was joy again in
that household." Elected County Commissioner in 1867. Reelected
County Commissioner in 1869 for 3 years. Elected to 8th Legislature
of Nebraska in 1870. Elected Treasurer Dodge County in 1874. " I
want to live by the roadside and be a friend to man" must have been
the thoughts and alms of Father and Mother Briggs. Their
hospitality was unbounded and extended to one an all.

Obituary
 
The Hooper Sentinel 
November 20, 1902
 
Mrs. Mary A. Briggs was born Jan. 16, 1813 in Ontario county, New
York, and died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. H. R. Laird, in
Tabor, Iowa, where she had made her home for the past 8 years, last
Friday morning, of heart failure.  Her body was brought to Hooper,
Saturday, and funeral services were held from the Methodist church,
Sunday morning at 11 o'clock, Rev. Wm. Esplin officiating.  The
interment was in the Logan cemetery by the side of her husband who
died in '87.  When she was quite young her family removed to
Kalamazoo county, Michigan, where March 12, 1834, she was married
to Asa C. Briggs.  To this union were born four sons and one
daughter, all of whom are living and were present at the funeral to
say the last sad tribute to the memory of their devoted mother.  In
1856 with her husband and children she removed to Mills county,
Iowa, and in 1866 from there to Dodge county, Nebraska.
 
As one of the pioneer women of the state, she saw many of the
hardships and trials of the early days.  Her life during her long
residence here was like an open book in which can be read obedience
to her God, devotion to her family, faithfulness to her friends and
charity for all mankind.
 
When but 13 years of age she joined the Methodist Episcopal church
and when the church at Hooper was organized she became one of the
charter members and remained a consistent member until her death.
The very large number at the services Sunday was an eloquent
testimonial of the love and esteem in which she was held in the
community.

Obituary
 
The Hooper Sentinel 
March 14, 1901
 
George Briggs, died at his residence in Hooper, Nebr, at 5:30
o'clock Tuesday, March 12th, of cancer of the stomach.  He had been
in poor health for several years, but it was not until about three
weeks ago that he was compelled to remain in the house and for the
past ten days was confined to his bed.
 
Mr. Briggs was born in Plymouth, Vermont, October 1st, 1830, and
age was therefore 70 years, 5 months and 11 days.  He is the last
of a family of nine children.
 
When but two years old his parents removed to Michigan and his
youth and boyhood was passed in that state until he was twenty
years of age when he went to California and Ore. remaining there
five years.  He then returned to Michigan and later to Mills
county, Iowa, where he engaged in farming.
 
March 31st, 1858, he was married to Henrietta A. Dubois who
survives him.  Four children were born to them, two dying in
infancy, Clarence D. Briggs and Mrs. Bertha Ortman surviving and
both grown to years of maturity.
 
In the fall of 1864 he removed to Dodge county and took a
homestead, near the old Logan mills, and where he continued to
reside until about 3« years ago when he turned over the care of the
farm - at this time increased to 640 acres - to his son Clarence
and came to Hooper to live hoping by taking a rest to benefit his
health, but it was of no avail as the deadly disease was too firmly
established in his system to be so easily shaken off, and he grew
gradually worse until Tuesday when he "entered into rest." He was
not a member of any church; he did not believe in creeds and his
religion consisted of the broad principles of the Golden Rule, and
during his entire life, he so lived up to the principles of "Do
unto others as you would have them do unto you," so strictly that
he lived universally respected and died regretted by all.
 
But it is in the home circle that his death will be most severely
felt. Always very domestic in his tastes, he was a most
affectionate and devoted husband and father, and even during his
last hours his thoughts were of the loved ones he knew he must
leave.
 
Mr. Briggs was a member of Hooper Lodge No. 72, A.F. & A.M., Sigma
Chapter No. 8 of Fremont and Friendship Chapter No 122, O.E.S., all
of Hooper, and his funeral services, which will be held today, will
be in charge of the Masonic fraternity, Rev. Amos Allen Luce
preaching the funeral sermon at the church and, according to his
wishes, the remains will be taken to the Logan cemetery for
interment there to rest until the resurrection morn.

History of the Elkhorn Valley 1892 
Page 669
 
George Briggs, a highly respected farmer of Logan township,
residing on Section 24, came to Dodge County in the autumn of 1864,
and first located on the farm where he now lives.  At that time it
consisted of one hundred and sixty acres of wild land.  He built a
log house, 16x18 feet, in which he lived five years, and then built
a frame house, 23x32 feet, with numerous additions, also a good
barn, stabling and cribs. He provided his place with a good well of
water, to which was attached a wind wheel.  A six-acre grove was
planted and an orchard of one hundred trees.  He has since added to
this land until he now has six hundred and forty acres, two hundred
and fifty-five of which is under the plow. During his residence in
Dodge County he has seen vast changes and undergone many hardships.
Many a thrilling incident he relates during the visitation to the
country of the grasshopper.
 
George Briggs was born in Vermont, October, 1831.  He is a son of
Asa and Sarah Briggs, natives of the Green Mountain State, whose
eight children were as follows; Clark, Amelia, Daniel, Lydia,
Artemesia, Esther, Anson, and George.
 
When he was two years of age his parents went to Kalamazoo County,
Michigan, and remained there eighteen years.  Our subject then went
to California, into the mining country, followed that and teaming
three years; then went to Oregon, where he remained but one year.
We next find him in California, then in Michigan, and at last in
Mills County, Iowa, where he broke prairie and farmed for five
years, and then came to Dodge County, Nebraska.  He was married,
March, 1858, to Henrietta, daughter of Henry and Arminta Dubois,
natives of Ohio, our subject's wife being their only child.
 
By this union four children were born; Clarence and Bertha, two
dying in infancy.
 
When Clarence was about footmen years of age he and a neighbor boy
were out hunting and his comrade accidentally shot him through the
arm, by reason of which it had to be amputated.
 
Politically, our subject, like every other intelligent American
citizen, has a choice in parties, he favoring the Republican.  He
belongs to the Hooper Masonic Lodge No. 72, and stands high in the
community in which he lives.

the past few weeks she was very low and death was looked for, to
relieve the patient sufferer, at any time.  The deceased, with her
husband, were among Dodge county's early settlers, and lived on the
home place in Logan township from 1865 until the fall of 1897, at
which time they took up their residence in Hooper, and the husband
passed away on March 12, 1901.
 
She was born in Ripley, Huron county, Ohio, Sept. 5, 1840, and was
married to George Briggs, in Mills county, Iowa, March 31, 1858. To
them were born four children, two of whom, Bertha (now Mrs. Bernard
Ortman) and Clarence, survive and mourn the loss of a kind and ever
thoughtful mother, two having died in infancy.
 
The funeral services were held from the M. E. church, of which she
was a member, on Wednesday.  The interment being in the Logan
cemetery.
 
We wish to thank those who so faithfully assisted during the
sickness and death of our mother. Mr. and Mrs. Bernard Ortman Mr.
and Mrs. Clarence Briggs.

Mrs. Briggs Burial in Logan Cemetery
 
Sunday word was received here that Mrs. Russell L. Briggs of Broken
Bow, a former well known and highly respected resident of Hooper
and locality for many years, had passed away Saturday evening at
her residence in Broken Bow and that her remains would be brought
here for interment in the family lot in Logan cemetery northeast of
town.  Mrs. Briggs was an old time settler of this community and
while living here was active in the affairs of the community and
was held in the highest esteem by all who knew her.  Though having
been gone from here for 25 years she was still well remembered by
the many friends of the family in this locality and word of her
death was regretfully heard by these friends who now extend sincere
sympathy to the family in their hour of bereavement.
 
Her death was due to a paralytic stroke she suffered Friday
evening. Funeral services were held in the Methodist church at
Broken Bow on Monday afternoon, these being conducted by Rev. E. A.
Baldwin, pastor of the Christian church.  The body was brought here
Tuesday and interment took place at 2:30 that afternoon in Logan
cemetery. She was the first of the third generation of the family
to be buried there. The services at the grave were in charge of
Friendship chapter No. 122, Order of the Eastern Star of Hooper of
which she was a charter member and a past Worthy Matron.  The below
is the obituary as given at the funeral services:
 
"Emma L., daughter of William and Mary Ann Lee Simms, was born at
Greenfield, Green county, Illinois November 1, 1857, and deceased
at her home in Broken Bow, Nebraska, April 23, 1932, having lived
more than 74 years.  She attended school in Greenfield, finishing
her education at the St. Louis Mo., normal school thus fitting
herself for teaching. She came to Nebraska at the age of 18, and
began her work. Her first school was near Fremont, in Dodge county.
She taught also at Jalappa and Logan schools in that county, and
later at Hooper, Wahoo and Ashland. Thru the summer months she was
one of the instructors in the county institutes.  More than 50 year
ago she became member of the Episcopal church and held to that
faith, but was  not locally identified with the church here.  In
her earlier life she espoused the Blue Ribbon crusade, and during
the campaign of Fisk and Brooks, spoke at numerous meetings. A
consistent temperance advocate, she was always earnestly in favor
of the 19th amendment.  She became interested in the Woman's Club
movement and was active in the organization at Hooper. After moving
to Broken Bow she continued her activities in the cause as much as
her health would permit.
 
"She was married to Russell L. Briggs June 1, 1882, at Wahoo,
Nebraska, with whom she has lived almost a half century, and who
survives her. They set up housekeeping in Logan township in Dodge
county, where Mr. Briggs was engaged in the milling business and
living on a farm. They came to Custer county in 1907, settling on
the farm 12 miles south of Broken Bow which they still own.  They
came to Broken Bow to live in 1926 and have resided here since that
time.  Four daughters and three sons were born to Mr. and Mrs.
Briggs, all of whom survive their mother.  They are Mrs. Alta M.
Brown,  Beatrice; Mrs. Angeline M. Morrison, Lincoln; Frank J.,
Fremont; Arch L., Alliance; George E., Broken Bow; Mrs.  Esther L. 
Banks, Clark, S. D.; and Miss Mary Lee Briggs, Broken Bow.  There
are eleven grandsons and three granddaughters.  None of her
father's family are living.
 
"About eight years ago Mrs. Briggs had a stroke from which she
never fully recovered and has had slight recurrences since. Friday
of last week about 5 o'clock she was again stricken, and in a few
hours was unconscious and never revived, passing on Saturday
evening, practically 23 hours after the stroke.
 
"Thus has passed a good wife and mother, and a loyal neighbor.  A
strong character, with a thoughtful, enquiring mind, and one whose
convictions of right were intelligently acquired and firmly held.
She has many friends in her home community and in Broken Bow."
 
Briggs, Emma Simms

Obituary
 
The Hooper Sentinel 
September 22, 1898
 
Died - On last Sunday, Sept. 18th, at the home of her daughter,
Mrs. Henry Lueninghoener, 6« northeast of Hooper, of cancer of the
liver. Mrs. Catharine Eisley, aged 67 years, 6 months and 7 days.
Catharine Hennemann was born in Herschweiler, Rhine Province,
Germany, on Feb. 21st 1831, where she lived until 1856, when she
came to America and settled in the state of Ohio.  In 1859 she came
to Nebraska and was united in marriage to Fred Eisley.  An only
daughter was given to them, who still survives her.  She has two
brothers and two sisters, Chas. of Hooper, Nicolis of Wipple, Ohio,
Mrs. Karl Kirsch of Enterprise, Nebr., and Mrs. Jacob Fauss of
White Oak, West Virginia, who mourn the loss of a kind, devoted
mother and sister.  In 1888 she was converted and joined the
Methodist Church.
 
Several months Mrs. Eisley had been gradually failing, but always
expressed herself as having a good hope beyond the grave.  She will
be greatly missed by the church as she has always been helpfully
associated with it since the time of her conversion.  But in "The
Temple not made with hands," we feel assured that she is reaping
her reward, waiting for those who she so tenderly loved, to join
her.
 
The funeral, a very large one, was from her home; Rev. Wagner, from
Talbasta, conducting it. The interment was in Logan Cemetery.
 
This closes another earthly life and one that has made the place
where she has lived, better, more beautiful and happier by her
indefatigable labor and affectionate and unselfish disposition.
Those who loved and respected her covered her casket with beautiful
flowers, which were the last tokens from those who will miss the
bent form and faultering step, but always kindly face of one they
dearly loved.

Lydia M. Eiseley, infant daughter of Charles F. and Josephine
Eiseley, died on August 30, 1873.  She was about 8 month old, and
is buried at Logan cemetery.  No additional information was found.
 
The following item is a brief history of her father.
 
History of the Elkhorn Valley Page 359
 
Hon. Charles F. Eiseley, one of the leading hardware merchants at
Norfolk, was born in Wurtemburg, Germany, July 3, 1838, and
emigrated to America in 1852, his brother being the first to
establish the family name in this country.  He fist located in
Dodge County, Nebraska, on Logan Creek.  He paid the government
price for a quarter section of land and afterwards took a homestead
which he partially developed.  In 1866 he, with E. H. Clark,
represented Washington County , in the Territorial Legislature,
held at Omaha.  At that meeting the Constitution of the State was
formed, and ratified the following year. In 1874 he removed to the
village of Hooper, where he opened the first hardware store, and
continued to operate the same until 1882.  He represented Dodge and
Burt counties in the Legislature in 1877 and 1879.  In 1882 he
removed to Norfolk, and five years later, 1887, was elected as
representative of Madison County.  It was through his
instrumentality that the enlargement of the Insane asylum was made
at Norfolk, for which an appropriation of one hundred and seventy-
five thousand dollars for the buildings, was obtained.  It may
truthfully be said that Mr. Eiseley is a self-made man.  He
received his education in his native country in the public schools,
and followed teaching several years, after coming to America. He is
deserving of much credit for the manly position he has taken on all
public measures.  He enlisted as a member of the Second Cavalry
during the civil war period at Omaha, and participated in the
Indian war; serving one year and was mustered out at Omaha in 1864.
 
In 1865 he was married to Josephine Whitney, a native of Medina
County, Ohio.  By this union the living children are; Francis,
Clyde and Horace.
 
Our subject votes the Republican ticket, feeling assured as he does
that by so doing he is best subserving the interests of the people.
At the time he came to Nebraska all was one prairie wilderness, and
its future brightness had not yet been dreamed of, much less
realized.  He has lived to see the prairies subdued, school houses
scattered in every direction, with church spires pointing skyward. 
He has lived to see countless manufactories established in the
Elkhorn Valley, while railroads cross and recross each other,
penetrating every nook and corner of the commonwealth.  Over
telephone and telegraph wires, man is permitted to carry on
conversation through all parts of the State. Surely the age of
wonders is upon us.  To be an eye witness to these great changes is
an honor, but to be an actual participant is not accorded to all,
but among this number may be enrolled the name of Charles F.
Eiseley, one of the pioneers of Nebraska.

Mrs. Jacob Fauss Called by Death Last Thursday
 
Mrs. Katherine Fauss of Winslow, widow of Jacob Fauss, and a
resident of this locality for about 57 years, passed away at her
Winslow home at 5:30 o'clock last Thursday morning, February 7,
1929, at the age of 77 years, 7 months and 7 days.  Her demise was
due to a complication of ailments from which she had been a
sufferer for some time past. Katherine Henneman was born on June
30, 1851, in Washington county, Ohio, where she grew to womanhood
and where at Lowell she was united in marriage on February 1, 1872,
to Jacob Fauss, who passed away August 14, 1911.  The spring
following her marriage she came to Dodge county, Nebr., and with
Mr. Fauss settled on the farm 5 miles northeast of Winslow that is
now occupied by her sons, Otto and Jacob. Since then this community
has been her home, having since 1918 lived in Winslow.
 
In the many years she lived in this locality Mrs. Fauss was highly
respected by its people and her death is sincerely regretted. She
was a true Christian woman, for forty years being a faithful member
of the Evangelical church, and one who was deeply devoted to her
home ties.

the loss of a kind and loving mother.  She also raised one
granddaughter, Delsie Boschult.  The living children are C. F.

Death Comes Suddenly to Aged Pioneer Friday

This week it becomes our duty to chronicle the passing of another
of the pioneer settlers of this community in the death of Henry
Hahlbeck on Friday evening, November 16, at the county farm near
Fremont, at the age of 93 years and one day.  Death came to him
suddenly, and was due to an attack of heart failure that came upon him
while seated at the supper table.  Previous to the fatal attack Mr.
Hahlbeck had seemed in his usual good health, and hence the news of
his passing, came as a shock and surprise to his grandchildren, Mrs.
E. A. Ruwe and G. G. Hahlbeck of this place, as well as to his many
friends in this locality.

The remains were brought to Hooper to the Bucholz Bros. undertaking
parlors from where the funeral services were held at two o'clock
Sunday afternoon, with Rev. G. F. R Duhrkop, pastor of Zions Lutheran
church officiating.  Interment was made in Logan cemetery beside the
remains of his wife who preceded him in death nine years ago.  Out
of town relatives here for the funeral were Mr. and Mrs. Herman
Hahlbeck of Norfolk and Mr. and Mrs. George Harms and Mr. and Mrs.  A.  J.
Keohn of Fremont.  Mr. Hahlbeck and Mrs. Harms being grandchildren
of the deceased.

Henry Herman Hahlbeck was born in Severene, Mecklenberg, Germany,
November 15, 1835.  He came to America in 1855 locating at
Watertown, Wisc, where he was united in marriage to Miss Maria
Goothzmacher.  In 1865 he and family came to Nebraska the trip being
by oxteam, they being a group of a number of families who came west
to make their home in those early days.  Mr. Hahlbeck located on a
homestead seven miles northeast of the present site of Hooper.  On
this place he resided for ten years enduring all of the hardships
incidental in pioneer life.  In 1875 he  moved to Hooper and engaged
in the hotel business on the site now occupied by the Ewald & Schwab
garage building.  He engaged in this business for four years, after
which he applied himself to his trade of carpentering for a number of
years, advancing age finally compelling him to quit this work.  He
had been at the county farm about four years.  In his many years of
residence here, Mr. Hahlbeck had gained a wide acquaintanceship
among the older residents of the community, and by his friends he was
held in much respect.

He was the father of five children, two, Mrs. Christopher Kroeger and
Henry, having preceded their father in death.  The surviving
children are Mrs. Wm. Pueppke of Rockville, N. D., Mrs. Herman
Ihde of Plainview and George Hahlbeck of Tilden.  He is aslo
survived by twenty-two grandchildren, over thirty great-
grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild.

Mrs. Henry Hahlbeck

A tolling church bell Saturday noon announced to this community the
death at 10:30 that morning, October 25 of Mrs. Henry Hahlbeck, who
for over 54 years had been a resident of this city and vicinity.
Her death came after an illness of ten days with pneumonia.  For a
time it was thought she would pull through but her age, 85 years, 11
months and 13 days, was against her in her fight against the ravages
of this disease.

As Mary Grutzmacher, she was born at Lahnkuhle, Meckenberg Schwerin,
Germany, November 12, 1833.  She came to America in the year 1854,
locating near Watertown, Wis.  Here on October 10, 1856, she was
united in marriage to Henry Hahlbeck.  Watertown remained her home
for ten years.  1865 saw the family starting westward and for
Nebraska, settling on a homestead in Dodge County, Nebraska.  This
farm now known as the Martin Luther farm, east of Hooper, was her
home for ten years.  In December, 1875, the family moved to Hooper,
thus for 44 years this place has been her home.

She was the mother of five children, two sons and three daughters of
whom George, of Wisner, Mrs. Herman Ihde, of Plainview, and Mrs. Wm.
Pueppke, of Shelton, N. Dak., remain to cherish the memory of mother
along with the aged husband, who for over 63 years was her
companion.

Funeral services were held Monday afternoon, first at one o'clock
at the home and then at the Zions Lutheran church, the Pastor, Rev.
J. Schrader, officiating.  They were largely attended by sorrowing
relatives and friends of the family, many coming from Fremont,
Uehling, Scribner, Norfolk and Walthill.   Interment was made in the
Logan cemetery.

visiting her relatives and friends and to all appearances was in
perfect health, the contrary was however the case and death came to
her, as to many others, when least expected.  In her daily life she
was cheerful, jovial and above all a friend, in the truest and best
sense of the word.
 
Her body was brought here on the 5 p.m. train, Thursday, by her
husband and the funeral services were held from the house of her

was held.
 
She leaves to mourn her loss, a husband and daughter, father,
mother and four brothers, and to these sorrowing ones the sincere
sympathy of this entire community is extended.

Casper Heller Passes Away
 
Died very Suddenly Tuesday at Noon Hour. Funeral to be Held Friday.
 
This community was surprised and shocked Tuesday noon when the word
was passed around that Casper Heller, a prominent farmer living
five miles north east of Hooper, had passed way very suddenly while
at the noon meal.
 
When eating his dinner, he was taken with a fainting spell and a
physician was hastily summoned, but the good man had passed to his
final reward before medical aid could arrive.  His death was due to
heart failure.
 
For several years Mr. Heller has not enjoyed good health, but this
last year he was more vigorous than for several years and Tuesday
forenoon had been out assisting in digging potatoes.  He made no
complaint of being ill and the blow coming so suddenly, must have
been an awful shock to the wife, children, relatives and friends.
 
Mr. Heller was a man 48 years, 4 months and 21 days of age and has
been a resident of Dodge county some 45 years, coming here from
Wisconsin when about three years of age.  He is a man who is
honored and respected by all who have had the pleasure of his
acquaintance and the influence for good that he has exerted both in
the home and the community, will be greatly missed.
 
He leaves a wife and eight children, four sisters and two brothers,
besides a large circle of friends to mourn his departure. The
children are: Mrs. Frank Daubert, Leona, Bernard, Clara, Carrie,
Elsie, Julia and Luella.
 
The sisters are: Mrs. Edward Fleishauer, Mrs. W. C. Hecker, of
Hooper; Mrs. Kusel of Watertown, Wis.; and Mrs. Buetow, of
Oklahoma.
 
The brothers are: William and August J. Heller, residing on farms
near this place.
 
Mr. Heller was a member of the Logan German Lutheran church, of
which Rev. E. Osthoff is the Pastor, and the funeral will be held
at that church Friday at 2:00 p. m., preceded by a short service at
the home.

Mrs. Dora Heller Called by Death
 
Services will be held this (Thursday) afternoon at 1:30 o'clock
from Zion Lutheran church for Mrs. Casper Heller who passed away at
8:30 o'clock Tuesday morning at a Lincoln hospital after a lengthy
period of failing health.  Rev. W. J. Wolff will officiate and
interment will be made in the family lot in Logan cemetery.
 
A daughter of one of Dodge county's earliest settlers, Mrs.  Dora
Heller was the last of the thirteen children of the pioneer Gerhard
Monnich family who came by ox team to take up a homestead claim in
Everett township in the spring of 1857.
 
It was on this homestead that Mrs. Heller was born November 20,
1865, and at the time of her death on January 9, 1945, she was 79
years, one month and 19 days of age.  She was united in marriage to
Casper Heller on February 23, 1884 thereby bringing into closer
relationship two well known pioneer families.
 
The couple made their home on a farm northeast of Hooper for 25
years until three years after the death of the husband and father
which occurred on October 5, 1909.  In 1912 the widow and her
daughters moved to Hooper, leaving the son to operate the home
farm.
 
It was not until failing health about four years ago prevented Mrs.
Heller from living alone that she left her Hooper home to be with
her daughters in this locality, in Scottsbluff and in Lincoln,
where he death occurred.
 
Mrs. Heller was member of the Zion Lutheran church and by her
Christian character, her love and her devotion to her family and
her fine qualities as a neighbor and friend, she was ever held in
the highest regard in this community which was home to her
throughout most of her life.
 
Surviving children are one son, Bernard, of Britton, Okla., and
five daughters, Miss Elsie Heller, Lincoln; Mrs. Julia Reid and
Mrs. Luella Hauser, both of Omaha; Mrs. Clara Eagan, Scottsbluff;
Mrs. Carrie Dau, Hooper; also 19 grandchildren and 18 great-
grandchildren.
 
Two daughters preceded their mother in death, Lenora on February 5,
1914, and Dora (Mrs. Frank H. Daubert) on December 27, 1943.

this city on her twenty-seventh birthday.
 
Deceased is the second daughter of Mrs. Caspar Heller. She was born
Febr. 15, 1887 on their farm five miles north-east of our city, and
moved here with her mother and sisters about two years ago.
 
She had been an invalid for about fifteen years suffering from
nervousness and heart trouble.  She was a patient sufferer and
always hopeful of becoming strong and well again.  She had been
planning she would go to Omaha for an operation during the coming
summer, after which she had no doubt she would be well.  But in
reality, she was slowly failing in health but seemed as well as
usual when she retired Saturday night.  It is not known when the
end came but it is thought that it was not long after midnight.
She no doubt fell asleep and did not awaken again as when a member
of the family went to her bedside in the morning it was thought
that she had not moved after lying down.
 
Funeral services were held from the Lutheran church in our city at
1:00 p. m., Wednesday. Rev. J. A. Matthiesen officiating. Interment
in Logan cemetery beside her father.
 
The bearers were: Messrs W. M. Kusel, W. A. Hecker, Ed and Maurice

Gone to Her Reward "So Shall those go"
 
A sleep -A sleep in death. The great mons'er called death has again
brought sorrow to this community.  One more loved one stands
waiting on Jordan's shore the arrival of those who today mourn her
loss. The gray down of the future has became blackened and the star
of hope lost on the sea of uncertainty to those who feel so keenly
her departure.
 
Catherine Margaretha Peters was born at Fammback, Germany Oct. 15,
1817. She was married to Mathew Heller Nov. 1, 1841 and with her
husband and family emigrated to America in 1858 settling first in
Wisconsin. In 1864 removed to Dodge County, Nebraska.  Here she
made her home until death which occurred Oct. 22, 1896.
 
Such is the simple tale of one life. "We spend our years as a tale
that is told."  But how much of this life can never be told or
written. Until the messenger of death hovered around and within the
house-hold, not even the nearest and dearest to the departed one
realized the beauty of her life or the grandeur of her character.
 
Coming here in an early day she endured the privations and trials
of the early pioneers but lived to see the country of her adoption
"blossom as the rose."  She leaves an aged husband and seven
children, William, August, and Casper Heller, Mrs. Ed Fleishhauer,
Mrs. W. C. Hecker, of Hooper, Mrs. Mary Beatow, of Hollowayville,
Ill., and Mrs. Margaretha Kusel, of Watertown, Wisconsin, to mourn
her departure for that better world.
 
Early in life Mrs. Heller espoused the faith of the German Lutheran
church and died a consistent member of that denomination. Rev. L.
Grauenhorst officiated at the funeral services which were held last
Sunday morning at the Logan German church and the remains interred
in the church cemetery. As usual large number of sorrowing friends
attesting by their presence at the last sad rites, the very high

Death Sunday of John F. H. Herrmann

factors in the sudden death Sunday of John F. H.  Herrmann, 55, at

discovered in the late afternoon hours by Mrs. and Mrs. Clarke upon
their return home from Hooper where they had spent the day in a

to his disposition had been anticipated.

of his life in Hooper before going to Fremont some years ago to
make his home with his sister, Mrs. Oscar Clarke.  For many years
while a resident here and at Fremont he worked at his trade as a
mason.

Death Comes to Relieve Young Lad of Sufferings
 
The home of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur J. Kriebel, of northeast of Hooper,
was saddened and darkened last Wednesday, November 30, 1927, when
the specter of death entered therein at 8:45 that evening and took
from them their only son, Marvin G. H., at the age of 10 years, 10
months and 2 days.  A tumor of the brain is ascribed as cause of
death. Although ailing practically all of his life, it was not
until a year ago that the real seriousness of his condition
manifested itself and since then he had been given the best medical
attention that loving hands could do for him.  About nine months
ago blindness came upon him to add to his misfortune.  But through
it all Master Marvin bore his sufferings with much fortitude and
was cheerful in spite of his affliction.  Recent treatments were
beginning to clear up his vision and reduce the cause of his
ailment, but his vitality had become so weakened through his years
of illness that he could not further withstand the ravages of the
disease and on Wednesday evening went into that sleep that knows no
awakening.
 
Master Marvin was born on January 28, 1917, on the farm that had
always been his home, and was the only child of Mr. and Mrs.
Kriebel. Despite his ailment he was a bright and cheerful boy and
had regularly attended school until blindness came upon him.  That
he will be missed by his parents is needless to say, and in the
time of their bereavement they have the deepest sympathy of their
many friends as they had it during their young son's illness.
 
The funeral was held Saturday afternoon with short services at the
Kriebel home at 1:30 and then at the Zions Lutheran church in town,
the pastor, Rev. G. F. R. Duhrkop, conducting them.  The services
were largely attended by relatives and friends, a number of the
relatives coming from a distance.  Interment was made in the Logan
cemetery northeast of Hooper.

Death Comes to George Kriebel
 
George R. Kriebel, one of the most widely known and respected
residents of the community northeast of Hooper, passed away on last
Sunday evening around six o'clock at the farm home that had been
his home all his life. He was 68 years, 5 months and 7 days of age.
Though he had been in failing health the past couple of years he
was able to be up and around and it was not until last week that
the critical nature of his ailment manifested itself.  His passing
is sincerely regretted by a large circle of friends.
 
Mr. Kriebel, son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Karl Kriebel, pioneer
settlers of this locality, was born on the Kriebel homestead farm
five and a half miles northeast of Hooper on April 16, 1866.  There
he spent his boyhood, grew to manhood, assisted his father in its
management and after the death of his father continued to make the
farm his home until his own death.  As a life long resident he
always took an active part in the affairs of that part of Hooper
township in which he lived, holding several positions of trust.
For many years he was secretary of the Logan Creek Cemetery
association, and in various other ways he gained the high respect,
trust and confidence of his neighbors and friends.
 
Mr. Kriebel was married to Miss Eliza Kindschuh in Burt county on
April 26, 1890, who with one son and one daughter now mourn the
loss of a devoted husband and father.  The children are Arthur J.
Kriebel of Hooper and Mrs. John W.  Urban of Winslow.  He is also
survived by one brother, Henry E. Kriebel of Oakland and four
sisters, Mrs. John Gaster and Mrs. Frank Gaster of West Point, Mrs.

Old Soldier Called
 
The many friends of Karl August Emil Kriebel, charter member of
Upton Post No. 133, G. A. R., and for over fifty years a resident
of this community, will be grieved to learn of the passing away of
that splendid old soldier on Wednesday evening, April 24, 1918, at
7:15 o'clock. Death occurred at the home of his son, George,
following a six weeks' illness from kidney trouble.  Deceased had
reached the ripe old age of 82 years, 10 months and 24 days.
 
Mr. Kriebel was born in Karzen, Silasia, Germany, May 30, 1835, and
was a cabinet maker by trade.  As was usual in Germany, he was
called for military training at the age of 21, and served for three
years and three months in the 11th Regt. Infantry, being a
sergeant at the time of his discharge in November, 1859.  The year
following he came to Wisconsin and worked through the winter on a
farm.  In 1861 at the outbreak of the Civil War he enlisted in Co
C. 1st Regt. Vol. Infantry, at President Lincoln's first call for
volunteers for three months. Immediately after his discharge he re-
enlisted, this time in Co. E. 10 Regt. Vol. Infantry.  He served
in this three years, receiving two wounds, one in thee face and one
in the right arm, where he carried the bullet for the remainder of
his life.  He was discharged in November, 1864, with the rank of
sergeant.
 
After his discharge he returned to Wisconsin, where in April, 1865,
he was united in marriage to Miss Henrietta Marquard, who preceded
him in death thirty six years ago.  He and his bride came to this
state by ox-team route and homesteaded the farm northeast of Hooper
where the remainder of his life was sent.  Mr. and Mrs. Kriebel
were the parents of eight children, six of whom are living. They
are, George on the home farm; Mesdames John Gaster and Frank Gaster
of West Point; Mrs. Henry Klatt, Norfolk; Henry Kriebel and Mrs.
Elmer Stoner, of near Craig. He also leaves twenty-one
grandchildren and twelve great grandchildren.
 
During his half century of life in this vicinity, Mr. Kriebel had
formed a large acquaintanceship, and his demise will be keenly felt
by all.  With the passing of this old soldier, the ranks of the
Civil War veterans of Upton Post are reduced to nine.
 
Funeral services were held from the home of his son, George,
Saturday afternoon at one o'clock and from the Logan church at
1:30. Rev. J. Schrader, the pastor, had charge.  Interment was made
in the church cemetery.

Sophia Kroeger died at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Martin Uehling, at
the age of seventy-nine years, eight months and nineteen days.  She
was born in Wittenford, Mecklenburg, Schverin, Germany, September
14th, 1819(1), was married to John Kroeger in 1838 and emigrated
with her family to Dodge County in 1867, where she lived up to her
death.  In 1870(2), three years after she came to this country, her
husband died and left her alone with six children, who are still
living.  Three sons, John of Los Angeles, Cal., and Krist and
Christopher of Hooper, Three daughters, Mrs. Sass of Beemer, Mrs.
Fred Uehling of Oakland and Mrs. Martin Uehling with whom she made
her home up to her death.  Besides her own children she had 26
grand children and 28 great grandchildren.
 
The funeral services were held at the German Lutheran Church, of
which she for many years had been an active member.  A host of
friends, who on account of her earnest Christian life and noble
character, had learned to love and respect her, were present at the
funeral.  Her only desire and constant prayer in the last days of
her life was to be relieved from her suffering and transferred to
the mansions above where she knew God according to his promises had
prepared a place for her.  As her life had been a constant battle
so her death was a grand victory.  She is gone but her life still
shines forth in the memory of those who surrounded her as a worthy
example to follow.

June 3, 1898 and was 79 years 8 months and 17 days old, which would

Obituary
 
The Hooper Sentinel 
November 4, 1920
 
William Langewisch
 
After we had the paper off the press last week we learned that we
had overlooked the fact that William Langewisch, of Winslow, had
succumbed on Thursday, October 21, to his self-inflicted injuries. 
It was unintentional on our part and one that we regret.
 
Mr. Langewisch, one of the old settlers of this community, was born
in Germany, on February 10, 1839.  In the year 1856 he came to
America, locating in St. Louis Mo., which place he made his home
until 1877, and where he was united in marriage on May 22, 1865, to
Miss Mary Winker. In 1877 he and family came to Fontanelle,
locating on a farm. He sold this place and in 1881 moved on to the
farm in Dodge county, now occupied by his son, Adolf.  About eleven
years ago he and his wife retired from active farm life and moved
to the home in Winslow to enjoy their declining days in the peace
and quiet they had deservedly earned. He was the father of sixteen
children, eleven of whom are living, and who, with the widow, have
the sympathy of the community in their bereavement.  The children
are Mrs. Henry Schroeder of Phoenix, Ariz., Mrs. George Geisler of
Lyons, Henry, Edward, Fred, Otto, John, Julius, Adolph, Mrs. Fred
Geisler, and Mrs. G. C. Panning of this city. Funeral services were
held Sunday, October 24, at the home and Lutheran church in
Winslow. Rev. J. H. Gerdes officiating.  Interment was made in
Logan cemetery.

Harry,
Thank you for your kind reply.
Your information confirms that this William Langewisch is not the
one I am looking for.
I have additional information on William Langewisch from Dodge
County, Nebraska:
He was born as Friedrich Wilhelm Langewisch probably at Stockhausen,
Minden-Lubbecke Kreis, Westphalia on 10 February 1839, the sixth
child of Hermann Heinrich Langewisch and Anne Marie Ilsabeth
Stiegelmeyer.  He was baptized at Blasheim on 17 February 1839.  He
arrived on 16 December 1856 at New Orleans on board the ship Neptune
from Bremen; he was passenger #77 listed as a boy age 19, a laborer
from Stockhausen to St Louis.  Stockhausen is a small village about
two miles from Blasheim.

History of Dodge and Washington Counties, Nebraska 
Volume II 1921
 
Henry H. Lueninghoener.  Until he recently retired Henry H.
Lueninghoener, a prosperous farmer of Dodge County, was actively
engaged in the prosecution of his calling and has been very
successful in his operations, having made improvements of practical
value on his estate, which is one of the most attractive and
productive of any in Hooper Township.  A son of the late Peter
Lueninghoener, he was born May 30, 1860, in Quincy, Illinois.
 
Born and brought up in Germany, Peter Lueninghoener, impressed by
the wonderful stories he had heard of the glorious opportunities
afforded the poor man in America, immigrated to the United States
at the age of eighteen years, and soon secured work as a farm
laborer.  He lived in Illinois until 1868, when with his wife and
children, he came to Nebraska, bringing with him the $800 he had
accumulated by hard work. He came up the river as far as Omaha in a
steamboat, and thence made his way to Dodge County, where he bought
a tract of wild land.  As his means increased, he bought other
tracts, becoming owner of 800 acres of farming land ere his death,
which occurred when about seven-eight. His wife, Anna Monke, was
born in Germany, and as a lass of eighteen years came with her
parents to this country.  Nine children were born to their
marriage, three sons and six daughters, a family of which they
could well be proud.
 
Eight years old when he came with his parents to Washington County,
Nebraska, Henry H. Lueninghoener well remembers the desolate aspect
of the country roundabout, and the arduous toil required of the
courageous pioneer ranchmen.  Familiar with agricultural work from
his youthful days, Mr. Lueninghoener succeeded to the occupation in
which he was reared, and at he age of twenty-three years bought the
farm which he now owns, and in its management met with unquestioned
success, it now being one of the best in regard to its improvements
and appointments of any in the neighborhood.  He recently turned
over the management of the farm to his son, Irvin, and retired to
Fremont to live.
 
Mr. Lueninghoener married in 1884, Helen Eisely, who was born in
Omaha, where her father, Carl Eisely, was an early settler, while
her mother was said to have been the first white woman to settle
west of Fontanelle, Dodge County, Nebraska.  Three children bless
their union, namely; Alma Marks, of Winslow; Irvin, operating the
home farm; and Gilbert, living a home.  Mr. and Mrs.  Lueninghoener
are valued members of the Evangelical Church.  Politically an
independent voter, Mr. Lueninghoener has served as a member of the
local school board for ten years.

Pioneer Woman Called by Death
 
Mrs. Helena Lueninghoener, 74, pioneer resident of Nebraska since
territorial days, passed away at the home of her daughter, Mrs.
Otto R. Marks, in Winslow Tuesday morning, October 26, after a
lingering illness which became critical about ten days ago.
 
Mrs. Lueninghoener, as Helena Eisley, was born in Omaha, August 2,
1863, and while still a small child she came with her parents to
reside in the vicinity of Fontanelle, where her mother, Mrs.
Catherine Henneman Eisley, came in 1856.  After the death of her
father, her mother kept house for her two brothers, Christy and
Jake Henneman, then residing four miles east of the present site of
Winslow, or six miles east of Hooper.
 
When Mrs. Lueninghoener was 13 years of age, she and her mother
moved to the Henry Lueninghoener farm four miles northeast of
Winslow which was her home for 44 years.  On January 7, 1884, she
was united in marriage to Henry Lueninghoener, moving with him to
Fremont in 1920 where they resided until his death on September 4,
1933, and where his widow continued to live until 1935 when she
went to Winslow to make her home with her daughter where her death
occurred.
 
Mrs. Lueninghoener was a true pioneer woman and a devout Christian,
a member of the Evangelical church and active in its interests
throughout her long and useful life.  By neighbor and friends she
will be remembered for her kindly helpfulness, and by her children
for her love and devotion to their welfare.  Surviving to mourn her
loss are two sons, Irving of Hooper and Gilbert of Fremont, and one
daughter, Mrs. Otto R. Marks of Winslow, and five grandchildren, as
well as many distant relatives and a host of friends.  Funeral
services will be held this Thursday afternoon at 2 o'clock at the
Evangelical church with the Rev. J. H. Williams of Telbasta and
Benjamin Hillier of Fremont delivering the sermon.  Burial, under
the direction of Wollmer and Warne, will be made in the Logan
cemetery northeast of Winslow.

Obituary
 
The Hooper Sentinel 
April 5, 1923
 
Pioneer of This Place Passes Away in Iowa
 
Once more we are called upon to chronicle the passing of an early
settler who played a big part in bringing this community from a
wilderness to its present high state of productiveness. This man is
Martin Luther, sr., who passed away at his Colfax, Iowa, home on
Thursday, March 29.  He was in his 81st year, he having been born
at Moehr, Germany in the year 1842.
 
Mr. Luther came to America with his widowed mother when he was ten
years of age.  He started then to provide for his mother, to make
preparations for the responsibilities that lay before him, and to
become a true American citizen - a citizenship that to its full
extent he enjoyed all thru life.  At the age of 19 he volunteered
his service and entered the military service of the United States,
serving as a member of Co H, 2nd Reg. Wisconsin cavalry.  On Nov.
3, 1862, he was honorable discharged at Keokuk, Iowa, by reason of
surgeon's certificate of disability. He was married on April 29,
1864 to Miss Caroline Heller in Wisconsin.  He embarked with his
wife and other relatives for the west, driving through with a team
of oxen and wagon, and took a homestead northeast of the present
site of Hooper, this farm now being the home of his son, Albert.
Here with his wife he settled down and started his career where the
home place still stands as a monument to his success.  To this
union eight children were born, two sons dying in infancy, while
Edward, George, August, Martin C., Carrie and Emma (now Mrs. C. J.
Rabe of Saginaw, Mich.), survived to mourn the loss of their
beloved mother who died here on December 10, 1876.
 
With the responsibility of a large family on hand and facing the
hardships of those days, he felt he needed a companion and a mother
for his children, so on February 24, 1878, he was united in
marriage to Wilhelmina Ulrich, who then took up the duties that lay
before her. She departed this life on January 20, 1918, at the home
of her son, Albert. To this union ten children were born, one
daughter dying in infancy, leaving Minnie (Mrs. H. F. Sinske),
Albert, John, Otto, Richard, Karl, Walter, Laura and Clarence to
mourn for the companionship of their mother.  Although cherishing
his home with his son, he wished to spend some of his remaining
days with his children at Colfax, his home for several years and
there the end came.
 
He was a good man, a good citizen, a faithful husband and father
and a loyal Union soldier, and this latter loyalty to this county
was exemplified in his offspring through four of his sons serving
in the World War.  He was a member of Hooper Lodge No. 72, A. F. &
A. M., and in this lodge's early days was one of its most faithful
workers, as also in the later years when he moved his family to
Colfax, the change of residence being made for the benefit of his
health.
 
He was a professing Christian, and in early life joined the
Lutheran church, and in this faith he always remained inviolate,
and it was through his efforts that the Logan church was organized
and built.  He was its first secretary.  While a resident of Colfax
he served for fifteen year as president of its board of education
and always took pride in the advancement of the schools.  Mr.
Luther faced the hardships of the west bravely, and all the trial
and dissappointments that come in this life were met with the
patience of a true man.
 
Following funeral services at Colfax, the remains were brought here
for burial.  They came early Monday morning to Fremont and were

Obituary
 
The Hooper Sentinel 
March 29, 1917
 
This community was shocked hear that John Moll, sr., an old time
resident of this vicinity, had suddenly passed away at his home in
Winslow Thursday morning, March 22, 1917, at the age of 68 years,
10 months and 2 days.  The cause of his demise was an attack of
heart failure.  Prior to this attack he was in his usual good
health and was up and around doing his daily tasks when stricken.
 
Deceased was born in Germany on May 20, 1848, coming to this
country with his parents in 1867, and locating on the farm east of
Hooper now occupied by his son Louis.  This was his home until
about seven years ago when he and his wife moved to Winslow to
enjoy the rest they so justly deserved from their labors on the
farm.
 
Mr. Moll was married twice, his first wife dying twenty-three years
ago. He later was married to Mrs. Katherine Middendorf of this
place, who survives him with him with his five children, Adolf,
Louis, John and Mrs. Louis Kuss of this vicinity, and Mrs.  John
Brandert of San Francisco.
 
The funeral services were held Sunday morning at 9:30 from his late
residence and then at the St. Paulus Lutheran church at Winslow,
the pastor, Rev. J. H. Gerdes, having charge of the services at
both places. Interment was in the Logan cemetery. A large concourse
of sorrowing friends followed the body to its last resting place.
 
The sincerest sympathies go out to the widowed wife and children in
their time of sorrow.

Salute to German Pioneers By Dale Moseman Lincoln, Nebraska
 
My great-great-grandparents, Johann Diedrich Moseman and Anna
Behrens, got married in northern Germany in 1852, living at
Elmeloh.
 
During the winter, he was a cabinet maker, but in the summer, he
was a well-paid ship's carpenter. On a summer trip to Greenland,
the ocean waters froze over before the crew could return, so they
waited until spring.
 
Eventually, they ran out of provisions, and he had to eat Eskimo
food all winter long.
 
America-Bound In Germany, the young men were trained to be soldiers
and were required to serve in the Prussian army.
 
The people had no voice in the government, so avoiding conscription
was courageous.
 
The family decided to immigrate to "free land" of the American
West.
 
Johann, Anna and their four sons--plus Anna's youngest sister,
Lena--sailed across the Atlantic Ocean by ship to New York City.
 
They took a train to Buffalo and went slowly by boat and on to
Newton, Iowa.
 
The trains averaged 20 mph, were smoky and sooty, and there were no
sleeping or dining cars.
 
The Havekosts... One-and-a-half years earlier, Herman Havekost and
his wife, Beta Behrens, and their two sons had come to Newton,
Iowa. (Herman had also been a ship's carpenter in northern Germany,
Beta was the younger Behrens sister.
 
After a three-week stay in Iowa, the Mosemans and the Havekosts
bought teams and two covered wagons for their possessions.
 
They came west on the old Mormon "hand cart" trail, reaching the
Missouri River over a week later.
 
Then they ferried across the river to Florence in the new state of
Nebraska.
 
On the Oregon Trail to Fremont, they continued to cook and camp
along the wayside until arriving in the Logan Creek area north of
Hooper.
 
Renounced Old Country Johann and Anna settled in the Admah area in
Sheridan township of Washington County, near Little Bell Creek
stream.
 
Herman and Beta settled in Logan township in Dodge County.
 
Their prairie schooners served as dwellings until they could build
their "claim shacks".
 
On March 16, 1868, in Omaha, Johann Diedrich Moseman declared his
intent to become a U.S. citizen by renouncing the Grand Duke of
Oldenburg and his country.
 
The soldiers from Ft. Calhoun provided protection to the early
settlers of the territory.  The Mosemans got their mail via a U.S.
Calvary horseback rider from the fort until Admah's post office
opened in 1874.
 
Built Claim Shack Johann Diedrich broke a little prairie sod and
built a small "claim shack" from trees growing along the Missouri
River.
 
This "sodbuster" plowed the tall grass prairie and cultivated 65
acres of land.  The orchard was 4 1/2 acres of fruit and forest.
 
Mid-winter, on January 29, 1869, inside the "shack" on the
settlement near Admah, Anna's first birth was to a boy--the
namesake Johann.
 
During those cold winters, "cow chips", corn cobs, wood and even
corn stalks were burned to keep warm.
 
When the U.S. Congress passed the Homestead Act in 1862, it opened
up 40% of Nebraska's land to be claimed by homesteaders.  On March
4, 1869, Johann Diedrich Moseman paid $14.00 for his homestead
application at the land office in Omaha.
 
$800 for 80 Acres On May 15, 1869, the family moved into a house
that Johann Diedrich had built.
 
It was a shingled one-story house, 13 X 18 feet, and it had 3 doors
and 5 windows.  He also built a board frame stable that was larger,
22 X 40 feet.
 
The 1870 U.S. Census shows that the 80 acres of land was valued at
$800 and their personal property valued at $980.
 
Anna 37, kept house for Johann Diedrich, 48; Heinrich, 15; Herman,
12, Arndt, 9: Diedrich, 6; and Johann, 1.
 
The next children were born in the spring time; Bernard in 1870 and
Annie in 1871.
 
The community of Admah had a general store, a creamery, a
blacksmith shop and a barber shop by 1870.
 
5c/Dozen Eggs could be carried 1 1/2 miles to the store--getting 5
cents per dozen in trade.
 
When the post office opened in 1874, mail was brought in by
horseback from Herman, Nebraska.
 
Two pioneer physicians from Ft. Calhoun rode the area on horseback
with saddlebags carrying liquid bottled medicine that tasted
horrible.
 
Johann Diedrich was declared a U.S. citizen on May 25, 1874, giving
citizenship to his family and their descendants. He purchased 32
acres of private sod for $5 per acre and planted it to wheat.
 
The wheat was hauled 40 miles by team and wagon to the Renard flour
mill at Elkhorn City, Nebraska.
 
Grasshopper Attack Anna gave birth to a girl, Lena, in the fall of
1874.
 
On Saturday, August 11, 1875, the corn that had reached shoulder
high was eaten to the ground by grasshoppers in one day.
 
The slickened railroad tracks stopped trains, and farmers had to
pay 60% interest to procure new seed grain.
 
By 1876, the 46 school districts in Washington County employed 74
teachers and enrolled 2,323 students.
 
Brandert country school #34 had 21 pupils in attendance in 1873--
but no privies.
 
2-Year Mail In October of 1877 the "New Oldenburg" church records
the deaths of three children, Diedrich, Bernard and Annie.
 
In the winter of 1881, Johann Diedrich died of dropsy. He was laid
to rest in the Logan Cemetery near Winslow on a hill overlooking
the creek that had become his vision of America.
 
The 48-year-old widow, Anna, gave birth for the 12th time to a
girl, Mary Betty, one month after her husband's death.
 
The final homestead patent was received by mail in Admah on April
26, 1883--over two years after his death!

Anton Nelson, A Pioneer Resident, died Thursday
 
News of the death of Anton Nelson old time resident of Dodge

last week Thursday, as few had known of his serious condition
resulting from a paralytic stroke the week before.  Mr. Nelson was

sixty years, suffering the hardships and privations which the
pioneers knew so well and doing his share to build up the country
during his younger and more active days.
 
Anthony Nelson was born May 11, 1867, at Hausen, Denmark, and died
in Fremont October 1, 1936, at the age of 68 years, 4 months and 20
days. 66 of these years were spent as a resident of this community.
 
Mr. Nelson with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Hans Sorensen, one sister
and two brothers immigrated to the United States in April 1870,
settling on a farm 8 miles northeast of Hooper where he grew to
manhood.  He was united in marriage to Miss Mary Keller on July 26,
1892.  To this union were born five sons, two of whom died in
infancy.
 
These remain to mourn his death, his wife, Mary, and three sons,
Julius, of San Gabriel, Calif., Christian of Hooper and Earl of
Herman, and four grandchildren, and also one brother, Soren Nelson,
of Hooper.
 
Funeral services for Mr. Nelson were held Sunday afternoon at the
Wolmer & Warne mortuary in Hooper with Rev. W. W. Alexander of
Grace Lutheran church, of which the deceased had been a member
since 1921, in charge. Interment was made in the family lot in

Adolph Panning Dies
 
It is with profound regret that we are called upon to chronicle the
sorrow that came to the Fred Panning home at 2:10 o'clock last
Saturday morning when the Grim Reaper appeared and removed the
well-beloved son, Adolph, who was at this time the comfort and
mainstay of his aged parents, having charge of the home farm where
they reside. Diseased was ill about a week, cause of death being
given as bronchial pneumonia.
 
Adolph Panning was born on the old home farm near Winslow where his
death (birth) occurred, on Aug. 31, 1891 being 27 years, 4 months
and 21 days of age at the tine of his passing away.  He spent his
life in the community where he was born, taking an active part in
its church and social life, growing to young manhood.  And what a
fine young man he was, robust good-natured and brimming over with
life and enthusiasm. He was the friend of everybody and everybody
was his friend.
 
During the time our country was at war there was no more zealous a
patriot than this young man.  He was one of the October draft
selects, but owing first to the prevailing epidemic and later to
the signing of the armistice, he was never called.  At the last Red
Cross election he was elected as vice chairman of the Hooper
Township Chapter, a position made vacant by his death.
 
Besides his parents he leaves six sisters and three brothers to
mourn his early death.  They are Mesdames Ed Stuenkel, Herman;
Albert Koch, Cologne, Minn.; Fred Hartung, Fontanelle; Will
Henneman, Hooper; Lottie and Margaret at home; Henry F., Ernest and
Fred P., near Winslow. To the sorrow of the relatives is added that
of the people of this entire community.
 
Private funeral services were held at the home Tuesday at 12
o'clock, his pastor, Rev. J. G. Lang, having charge.  Interment was
made in Logan cemetery.

Death Comes to Fred Panning Sr.
 
With the passing of years, the ranks of the real pioneer settlers
of this locality are thinning quite rapidly, and this week it
becomes our duty to chronicle the passing of one such resident in
the person of Fred Panning, Sr.  The death of Mr. Panning occurred
about 11 o'clock last Friday evening, September 20, 1935, at the
farm home, four miles east of Hooper, that had been his home for 71
years, or ever since he came to this locality, and a record locally
for living in one place. His death followed several years of
illness from ailments incidental to old age. He had reached the age
of 89 years, 3 months and 21 days. Mr. Panning was born at Hanover,
Germany, May 29, 1846. When a lad of 5 years, he came with his
parents to the United States, his first home in the new country
being at Watertown, Wisc., where the family lived until 1864. In
July of that year, Mr. Panning, then a young man of 18 years, came
with his parents along with a number of other families of hardy
pioneers to this locality, the long, tedious trip being made by
covered wagons drawn by teams of oxen, while the trip was one of
hardships, to the then young man it was an interesting experience,
and in his later years he delighted in the recounting of the
journey as well as of the trials and tribulations that beset the
early day settlers in their new homes in the unbroken prairie lands
of this section of the country. On arriving here his father took a
homestead right four miles east of the present site of Hooper and
that place had since remained his home.  In the passing years Mr.
Panning labored hard and grew to see the barren land blossom into
the rich and fertile fields now to be seen on every side.  His was
an active life and his labors were well rewarded.  In his younger
days he took an active part in the affairs of his community,
becoming widely known for his services and helpfulness and enjoying
the very highest respect of neighbors and a large host of friends.
 
He was married in 1873 to Miss Doris Schrader who died on August
20, 1888, this union being blessed by the birth of five children
who survive him, these being Mrs. Albert Roch of Cologne, Minn.,
Mrs. Edward Stuenkel, Herman; Mrs. Fred Hartung, Nickerson, and
Henry F. and Ernest G. of this locality.  May 10, 1889, Mr.
Panning was married to Miss Lillie Wager, who preceded her husband
in death November 15, 1922. From this union the following children
survive their father; Mrs. Wm. C. Henneman, Fred T. and Miss Lottie
Panning of this community and Mrs. Robert L. Schwab of Fremont.  A
son, Adolph, died on January 4th, 1919, during the influenza
epidemic of that time.  Also surviving him are 32 grand children
and 8 great-grand-children and a large number of other relatives.
 
His funeral, under direction of Wollmer & Warne, was held Monday
afternoon with brief services at the home at one o'clock, and with
the final service at 1:30 from the Immanuel Lutheran church of
which Mr. Panning had been a faithful member for many years.  The
sermon was preached by Rev. E. Eckhardt, who touchinly spoke of the
high attribute of the departed.  The services were very largely
attended by relatives and friends, who thus paid a final tribute to
a highly respected resident.  Music was furnished by a male
quartet, and the choirs of the church, with Prof. F. A.  Vonderlage
at the organ.
 
The pall bearers were Clyde Panning, Lavere Henneman, Louis
Panning, Walter Stuenkel, Paul Panning and Harry Stuenkel, all
grandsons of the deceased.
 
Interment was made in the Logan cemetery.
 
Out of town relatives here for the funeral included; Mrs. Albert
Koch, Cologne, Minn.; George Wager, Gus Wager and son, Clarence, of
Haney Creek, Iowa, Mrs. Dora Master, Mrs. Gertrude Pfeiffer and
Ernest Wager and son, Vernon, of Arlington, Mr. and Mrs. George

History of The Elkhorn Valley 1892 
Page 716
 
Fred Panning, an enterprising farmer living on Section 19, of
Hooper township, came to this part of the Elkhorn Valley, with his
parents, July 5, 1864.  He remained at home and worked until he was
twenty-one years of age.  He purchased one-half section of land
which was partly improved. He added other improvements, and also
bought more land until he had four hundred and forty acres; he then
sold out and purchased the farm he now occupies, consisting of one
hundred and sixty acres. Upon this tract he built a good house,
granary, machine-house and cribbing, with cattle sheds; he also
provided a well two hundred and ninety two feet deep, to which wind
power was attached and a system of waterworks put in, the fountain
head of which was a tank holding one hundred barrels; the water is
used for domestic and stock purposes, He has an orchard of two
hundred trees, and an artificial grove of four acres. He has since
added to his land until he owns five hundred and twenty acres, one
hundred and thirty-five of which are under the plow, and the
balance in pasture and meadow land.  He commenced in Dodge County a
poor man; was here through the grasshopper years, when the crops
were nearly all destroyed; was also overtaken by hail storm and
experienced all of the ups and downs of frontier life.
 
Fred was born in Germany, May 29, 1846, the son of Henry and
Margaret Panning, who were also natives of Germany, and the parents
of three children; Catharine, Henry and Fredrick. When six years of
age, our subject came to America with his parents.  From New York
harbor, they went to Dodge County, Wisconsin, where they lived
until their coming to Nebraska. His advantages for schooling were
very poor, as they lived five miles from a school house.
 
June, 1877, marked a new era in this man's life for it was during
that month and year that he was united in marriage to Dorothy
Shrader, of Germany, who was of a family of five children.
 
May 10, 1889, for his second wife, our subject married Lillie
Wager, daughter of Gustave and Dorothy Wager, natives of France and
Germany, respectively.  By this marriage union seven children were
born: Henry, June 2, 1878, Katie, July 2, 1879; Earnest, January 6,
1882; Anna, March 5, 1884; Ida, January 6, 1886; Lulu, December 15,
1890; Adolph, August 13, 1891.  The two last named are children by
his last marriage.
 
Politically, Mr. Panning affiliates with the Democratic party,
while he and his wife are both believers in the Lutheran faith.

Pioneer Resident Called By Death Last Sunday
 
A heart ailment superinduced by the excitement incident to an
automobile accident resulted in the death of Henry Panning of
Winslow, a pioneer resident of this locality, last Sunday morning,
September 15, 1929.
 
The auto mishap happened two miles east of Thayer to where Mr.
Panning, Mr. and Mrs. Henry Kuss, and Mr. and Mrs. Fred Kuss were
bound for a visit at the home of Mr. Panning's daughter, Mrs. Paul
Schmidt. They were riding in the car belonging to Fred Kuss with
Mr. Kuss driving. When near Thayer a tire blowout occurred, causing
the auto to swerve and go into a ditch.  Fortunately Mr.  Kuss was
driving slowly and when the auto went into the ditch it slowly
toppled over on its side.  The only damage to the car was a broken
spring and a crushed fender. Though the occupants of the car were
shaken, Henry Kuss was the only one to receive any injuries, these
consisting of a bruised shoulder and a few cuts resulting in an
endeavor to get out of the car.
 
When the car upset, Mr. Panning who was in the front seat with Fred
Kuss, toppled over onto Mr. Kuss, and it was not until other
occupants went to assist Mr. Panning from the auto that it was
noticed that he was dead.  He bore no marks or bruises to indicate
any injuries that might have caused death.  Mr. Panning had been
afflicted with a weak heart and the excitement of the accident is
thought to have aggravated his case and caused death.  When word
was received here of the death of Mr. Panning, it came as a shock
to relatives and friends, and the latter in turn expressed their
deep sympathy to the family in their loss.
 
His remains were brought back to Winslow the same day, and
yesterday afternoon the funeral was held, with services at 1:30
from the late home and at two o'clock from St. Paul Ev. Lutheran
church of Winslow, The pastor Rev. J. H. Gerdes conducting them.
 
The funeral was a very largely attended affair, in due keeping with
the honor and respect the deceased had been held in his many years
of residence in this community.  Interment was made in the Logan
cemetery.
 
Mr. Panning had attained the age of 85 years and 5 months, he
having been born at Hanover, Germany on April 15, 1844.  When a lad
of eight years in 1852 he came with his parents to the United
States, locating at Watertown, Wisc.  Here he made his home for 12
years, and in 1864 he came by the ox team route with his parents to
Nebraska, and settled on a farm five miles east of the present site
of Hooper that his father purchased and which is now farmed by his
son, G. C.
 
Since then this community had been Mr. Panning's home and by reason
of these many years he became one of the best known and prominent
old settlers of the community, he always taking an active part in
its affairs and holding positions of trust.
 
He was very successful as a general farmer and stock raiser, and
continued his work until twenty-one years ago when he retired from
active farm life and turned the management of the farm over to his
son G. C.
 
About fifteen years ago he left the farm and with his wife moved to
a new home he had built in Winslow, and since where he had enjoyed
the comfort of life he had so justly earned through hard labors.
 
On November 8, 1868, he was united in marriage to Meta Meyer, and
last fall they were privileged to celebrate together sixty years of
successful wedded life.  To this union eleven children were born,
five of whom survive to mourn with the widow the departure of an
ever devoted husband and father.  These children are Mrs. J. C.
Bergt of Altona, Mrs. Henry Kuss of Winslow, Fred G. and Gus C.
Panning of Hooper and Mrs. Paul Schmidt of Thayer.  He is also
survived by 24 grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren.

History of Dodge and Washington Counties, Nebraska 
Volume II  1921
Page 467
 
Henry Panning of Winslow, now retired, belongs to the real pioneer
element of Dodge County, coming here when he was twenty years of
age, and for half a century contributing an important share in the
labors by which this wilderness region was reconstructed and made
into a wonderful landscape of valuable farms and homes.
 
He was born April 15, 1844, in Hanover, Germany, and was eight
years of age when in October, 1852, with his parents he reached the
United States.  His parents, Henry and Margaret (Wolf) Panning,
located at Watertown, Wisconsin, but left there in 1864 and with
wagons and ox teams crossed the country beyond the Missouri to
Nebraska.  Henry Panning, Sr., paid $1,200 for 360 acres of land
partly improved, including a small house.  At that time any amount
of land was still open for homestead settlement, but he preferred
this and was willing to pay a larger price for just what he wanted.
On that farm he and his wife lived out the rest of their years, she
dying at the age of fifty-eight and he at sixty-seven.  Henry
Panning early took his sons, Henry and Frederick, into partnership
with him, and their holding increased to about 1,000 acres, were
kept intact until after the death of Henry Panning, Sr., when the
land was divided.
 
Henry Panning, Jr., acquired most of his education after coming to
this country and in the State of Wisconsin.  He was just twenty
when he came to Nebraska and many of his youthful years were
devoted to the clearing up and improvement of the land in the
community where the family settled.  He was very successful as a
general farmer an stock raiser, and continued his work in the rural
district until 1916 when he turned the management of his farm over
to his sons and then build his present house in Winslow and
retired.  He is on of the men of property in Dodge County, is a
stockholder in both the Winslow State Bank and the Hooper Telephone
Company, and has always assumed his share of duties and obligations
in the community welfare.  He is a stanch democrat and both he and
his wife are valued members of the Lutheran Church at Winslow.
 
Mr. Panning married Miss Meta Meyer, who was born in Oldenburg,
Germany. Eleven children were born to their union, six dying young.
Those to grow up were: Mary, wife of J. G. Berght, a farmer in
Wayne County, Nebraska; Louise, wife of Henry Kuss, manager of the
Nebraska and Iowa Gain Elevator at Winslow, whose individual career
is sketched elsewhere; Anna, wife of Paul Schmidt, manager of an
elevator at Thayer, Nebraska; Frederick G.  and Gustave C., each of
whom receives individual mention in this publication.

Obituary
 
The Hooper Sentinel 
June 8, 1933
 
Mrs. H. Panning, Sr. Dies at Winslow
 
Mrs. Henry Panning, Sr., a resident of this locality and county
since 1868, passed away at 6:40 Wednesday morning, June 7, 1933, at
the home of her daughter, Mrs. Henry Kuss, at Winslow, at the age
of 83 years, 9 months and 22 days.  Her death was due to a stroke
of apoplexy suffered earlier that morning, a contributing cause
being an accident in which she sustained a broken leg about four
weeks ago.  Her passing removes another of this community's
gradually diminishing ranks of pioneer settlers.
 
Margaret Catherine Meyer was born August 15, 1849, at Hatten,
Oldenburg, Germany, where she grew to young womanhood, received her
educational schooling and confirmed in the Lutheran faith.  4th
April 1868, she came with her parents to the United States and
direct to Dodge county, Nebraska, this locality having ever since
remained her home.  In November, 1869, she was united in marriage
to Henry Panning, and settled on the Panning homestead, east of the
present sites of Hooper and Winslow.  This farm was her home until
1915 when she and Mr. Panning retired from active farm life and
settled in Winslow to enjoy a well earned rest.  Mr. Panning passed
away September 15, 1929, and for the past year and a half she has
made her home with her daughter, Mrs. Kuss.
 
In the many years of residence here she had gained a very wide
acquaintanceship; and the high esteem of all.  As a pioneer
resident she endured the trials and cares of the early day life of
a sparsely settled country and her reward has been to see the land
become a real garden spot of the nation.  As wife and mother she
was highly devoted to her family and as a neighbor and friend she
was ever beloved and respected.
 
She was the mother of eleven children, six of whom have preceded
her in death.  The surviving children are Mrs. J. G.  Bergt of
Altona, Mrs. Henry Kuss of Winslow, Fred and Gustav Panning of
Hooper and Mrs. Paul Schmidt of Thayer. 24 grandchildren and 15
great-grandchildren also survive her.
 
Her funeral will be held Friday afternoon, with services at 2
o'clock at the Kuss home and later, from the St. Pauls Lutheran
church in Winslow, Rev. J. G. Gerdes officiating.  Interment will
take place in Logan cemetery, northeast of Winslow.

Obituary
 
The Hooper Sentinel 
January 30, 1902
 
Martha Panning died at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Henry
Panning, 4 miles east of Hooper, last Friday night, of exhaustion
produced by an operation of appendicitis.
 
She was born Nov. 24, 1885 and was consequently, at the time of her
death 16 years and 2 months old.
 
Sometime last September she was taken with an acute attack of
inflammation of the bowels and for nearly three months she battled
for life and several times it seemed as though she must give up the
struggle, but careful nursing and a good constitution enabled her
to rally and a week before her death she was thought entirely out
of danger and her parents were happy in the thought that she would
be saved to them, but their joy was of short duration.  On Tuesday
she was suddenly taken sick again and it was decided by her
physicians that the only hope of saving her life was in an
operation which was done last Thursday, but the little frail body
was so weakened by disease that it had no strength to rally and she
only lived about twelve hours.
 
During her long and painful illness she was a patient sufferer and
her death was to her a release for suffering.
 
Flowers fall as well as oaks, youth in its buoyancy, manhood in its
prime, or old age, with its hoary lock is brought to the sepulcher
and yet in the language of the poet.  "There is no death!  The
stars go down to rise upon some other shore."
 
She that sleeps will live in the memory of those who knew her, in
the hearts of those who loved her.
 
The bereaved parents, brothers and sisters will have the sympathy
of the community in this sad and trying hour.
 
Funeral services were held at the Clark Creek German Lutheran
Church last Monday, Rev. Lang, her pastor officiating.

that the newspaper intended to say daughter instead of son.  If so,
the paternal grandparents were Mr. & Mrs. F. G.  Panning and the

Last Rites Held For Fred Peters
 
Funeral services were held at the Redeemer Lutheran East Church on
Sunday afternoon for Fred Peters, 63, of Snyder, who was killed in
a two-car collision at the east edge of Scribner Wednesday
afternoon.
 
Sheriff Pelham McGee's report stated that Peters was attempting to
cross Highway 275 from the south on a country road when his car was
in collision with one driven by Lloyd A. Smith of Neligh, who was
trveling east.  Peters was thrown from his car at the point of
impact, and died while being taken to a doctor's office by the

Henry Schwab,Sr. Dead
 
A resident of Dodge County for over 41 years
 
Henry Schwab, Sr. died at the home of his son, Jacob, last Sunday
evening, about 11 o'clock.  The immediate cause of his demise was
trouble incident to his old age, he being 93 years and six months
old.
 
Deceased was born in Rhenish(1) Bavaria June 14, 1809. He was
married to Katherine Vight(2) and to them were born seven children,
four of whom, Jacob, Adam, and Henry Schwab and Mrs. Theodore
Uehling are still living and were with him at the time of his
death.
 
In 1855 Mr. Schwab, with his family emigrated to the United States
settling first in Dodge County, Wisconsin, removing in 1861 to
Dodge County, Nebraska, making the trip by ox team.  When he first
came here, he took a homestead and like many of the early settlers
saw all the trials and suffering of pioneer life, but his faith in
the country was not shaken and long before he died he had the
satisfaction of knowing that his judgement was correct. Owing to
failing health, he has not for a number of years taken any active
interest in business matters and since the death of his wife about
7 years ago, he has made his home with his son, Jacob.
 
Mr. Schwab was a man of sterling character, upright and the soul of
honor and was held in the highest esteem by all who knew him.
 
Funeral services were held at the German Lutheran Church last
Tuesday morning at 10 o'clock, Rev. E. Walter officiating.  The
interment was in Logan Cemetery.
 
(1) According to the IGI, he was born in Rieschweiler, Germany.
Rieschweiler is now in Rheinland-Pfalz. Rhenish is a term for the
Rheinland-Pfalz area of Germany.

is now the Fieishhauer farm. He afterwards gave this up and in 1864
took as a homestead the se1/4, section 9, township 19, range 8.
This farm is now the property of his son Henry.
 
At the time of his coming here Mr. Schwab's family consisted of
wife and four children; Catharine, now Mrs. Theodore Uehling,
Jacob, Adam and Henry.  Mrs. Schwab died in 1887.
 
It was after Mr. Schwab came to the country that the first school
house was built, and the Indian scare being over matters for the
settlers were just beginning to get straightened out when the Civil
war broke out. Volunteers were wanted to hold the Minnesota Sioux
Indians in check, and in the fall of 1862 Jacob Schwab enlisted in
the 2d Nebraska cavalry and was sent to Fort Randall.  After eleven
months service the regiment was mustered out without having seen
any actual fighting.
 
Politically and socially this family has been quite prominent in
the history of this part of the country.  In 1886 Henry Schwab,
Jr., was elected a member of the Nebraska legislature and served
one term.
 
Mr. Schwab, Sr., is now 91 years old and is in the best of physical
health, and for a number of years has made his home in Hooper with
his son Jacob.  This family endured all the hardships incident to
pioneer life, but as that has been already given in detail before
this it will be omitted in this connection, but of their connection
with the development of the country we will have more to say in a
future paper.

Obituary
 
Fremont Weekly Herald 
March 8, 1888
 
Obituary - Mrs. Kate Schwab, wife of Henry Schwab, Sr., died at her
home in this place at 10 o'clock Monday night, aged 71 years, 2
months and 27 days.
 
Mrs. Schwab was born in Bavaria, Nov. 30, 1816, her maiden name
being Viet.  She was united in marriage to Henry Schwab May 6,
1836, and with her husband emigrated to America in 1855, when they
settled in Wisconsin.  Mr. and Mrs. Schwab were pioneers of
Nebraska, coming to Dodge county in 1861.
 
She had been sick for about six weeks with a complicated stomach
trouble and finally death came, but found her prepared; she died as
she had lived, at peace with all mankind.
 
Her life has been an open book in which can be read all that is
good in a wife and mother, uneventful, perhaps, in the
accomplishment of any great deed, but a model worthy of example; an
affectionate and devoted wife and a loving and self-sacrificing
mother, a friend to be prized and trusted and one whom friends
mourn and miss when death takes them.
 
She leaves, besides an aged husband, four children, Henry, Jacob
and Adam Schwab, of Hooper, and Katie, now Mrs. Theodore Uehling,
of Logan township, to mourn the loss of one so true.
 
Mrs. Schwab was a member of the German Lutheran church, and the
funeral services were conducted from Logan German Lutheran church
yesterday at 10 o'clock a. m., Rev. Mr. Sieck, of Fontenelle,
officiating, and the body was laid to rest in the Logan cemetery in
the presence of a large concourse of sorrowing relatives and
friends. - Sentinel.

Obituary
 
The Hooper Sentinel 
November 22, 1934
 
Joseph Stecher Called By Death 
 
Another of the early day settlers of this community entered into
his final reward when death called Joseph Stecher of Winslow early
last Saturday morning November 17, at the St. Joseph hospital in
Omaha.  On Wednesday Mr. Stecher had undergone a gall stone
operation to secure relief from an ailment that had troubled him
for some time. While he passed through the operation nicely,
complications suddenly set in and the end came rapidly and as a
surprise to his many friends here. His death removes a Dodge County
resident of 69 years standing.
 
Mr. Stecher had attained the age of 76 years, 11 months and 22
days, he having been born near Vienna, Bohemia, on November 25,
1857.  At the age of 12 years he came to the United States with his
parents and two brothers and settled on a farm near Dodge, and
began a residence that made him widely acquainted in the county. On
February 6, 1878, he was married to Miss Rose Wagner of Hooper.
Following the marriage a home was established near Dodge followed
later by a short residence in Kansas, after which they returned to
Dodge county and settled on the farm four miles northeast of Hooper
now managed by his son, Louis.
 
In 1916 he and Mrs. Stecher retired from farm life to enjoy a well
earned rest and moved to Fremont, which city remained his home for
the next 16 years.  In the fall of 1932 Mr. and Mrs. Stecher moved
back to the old familiar landmarks to make their home in Winslow,
but shortly afterwards or on January 15, 1933, death took away Mrs.
Stecher and broke up a companionship that had lasted for fifty-five
years.
 
In his years of residence in this locality Mr. Stecher proved
himself to be a successful farmer and stock raiser, keeping abreast
with the times of those years.  He was active and prominent in the
affairs of the community in which he lived and gained the high
respect of his fellow citizens.
 
He was the father of four sons, one, Frank, dying in infancy and
another, Francis, passing away in 1928.  The two who survive him
are Lester of Potter and Louis of Hooper.  He is also survived by
four Grandchildren.

Mrs. Jos. Stecher Called By Death 
 
Slowly, but surely, the real pioneer residents of this community
are, being called to their eternal rest, and this week it becomes
our duty to chronicle the passing of one who has been a resident of
the locality since 1861.  This is Mrs. Joseph Stecher, who passed
away about 3 o'clock, Sunday after noon, January, 15, 1933, at the
old farm home, the present home of her son, Louis, about four miles
northeast of Hooper. An illness of a week which developed into
pneumonia was the cause of her death. Previous to that time she had
enjoyed good health.  She passed away at the age of 79 years, 9
months and 26 days, and of the original family that came to
Nebraska in the early days, Mrs. Stecher was the last.  As Rose
Catherine Elizabeth Wagner, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George Wagner,
she was born on March 19, 1853 in Cleveland, Ohio. When a child of
three she went with her parents to Madison, Wisc., residing there
until 1861.  On April 1st of that year the family in company with
the Schwab family started for Nebraska by ox team arriving here on
July 4.  The trip, while a hard and tedious one, was, however,
filled with much to interest a girl of eight years and according to
a sketch give by her at the unveiling of the Logan Mills monument
in 1930 was also filed with impressions that remained with her the
rest of her life.  The hardships of the trip and the rigors of the
early winters moulded a depth of character in the pioneers which is
difficult to find among the present day people.
 
Her first home in this community was an abandoned two room log
cabin about a mile from the Logan Mills that was shared for a time
by both the Wagner and Schwab families.  Her father then pre-empted
a 160 acre claim which he later homesteaded and on which a log
house was built in 1862. From then on this county has been her home
and among its people she had become beloved and widely known.
 
Her marriage to Joseph Stecher took place at Fremont on February 6,
1878.  Following the marriage they located on the farm now the home
of her son, Louis.  Here she and Mr. Stecher resided until
seventeen years ago when they retired from farm life to enjoy a
well earned rest and moved to Fremont.  Four months ago they came
back to the old familiar landmarks and took up their home in
Winslow, but death destined her not to remain long amid the circle
of her old time friendships.  As a wife and mother Mrs. Stecher was
ever devoted to her family, as a friend ever faithful and helping
and as a resident always held in the highest esteem by all. Her
passing is sincerely regretted by everyone who knew her and all
extend sympathy to the family in their loss.
 
She was the mother of four sons, two having preceded her in death,
Frank in infancy and Francis in 1928.  Surviving sons are Lester of
Potter and Louis of Hooper, who with the father now mourn the
passing of a much beloved mother and wife.  Four grandchildren also
survive her. Following her death her body was taken charge of by
the Wolmer & Warne mortuary service until the day of the funeral.
This was yesterday with short services first being held at 1:30 at
the Louis Stecher farm home and at 2 O'clock from the Grace
Lutheran church, in which faith she had been reared and maintained.
An audience that filled the church was present to pay their tribute
to the memory of this beloved woman and pay heed to the words of
comfort as pronounced by the pastor, Rev. W. H. Moeller. Interment
was made in the Logan cemetery, which is a part of the original
Wagner homestead and in which her father, who passed away in 1865,
was the first interred.

An other old settler of this vicinity passed to his reward Sunday

Biography - Johannes (John) Uehling
 
John Uehling, 86, was born April 23, 1797 at Gumpelstadt,
Thüringen, Germany.  However, the church records in Gumpelstadt
show his year of birth as 1798.  His parents were Johann Martin
Uehling and Anna Dorothea Kallenbach.  He married Dorothea
Elisabetha Trautvetter on April 27, 1819 in Germany.  They had 3
children; Anna Margaretha, Margaretha Elisabetha and Andreas.
 
His wife, Dorothea, died November 14, 1828 in Germany and on April
12, 1836 John married Cordula Elizabeth Trautvetter at Witzelroda,
Thüringen, Germany.  John and Cordula had the following children
born to them in Germany; Dorothea Elisabetha (Odelia), Oswald,
Barbara Margeretha, Evalynn Christina, Barbara Rosina, John Martin,
Johann Martin and Elizabeth.
 
The family except daughters, Dorothea Elisabetha (Odelia), who was
deceased and Margaretha Elizabeth, who was married to Johann Caspar
Kaiser, emigrated to the USA in 1852.  They travelled on the ship
"Jason" from Bremen, Germany to New York City, New York.  They
arrived at New York City on August 10, 1852, and then went to Dodge
county, Wisconsin.  The following children were born to them in
Wisconsin; Frederick, Ernestine Henrietta and Anna Catharine. They
remained there until 1864, when they moved west to Dodge county,
Nebraska.  They arrived at Logan Mills, Dodge county, Nebraska on
June 26, 1864. Also on this migration were the families of Mathias
Heller, Ed Fleishhauer, Martin Luther Sr., Heinrich Panning, Fred
Wolf Sr., Oswald Uehling and Conrad Schram.  Of this group, all
except the Fleishhauers are buried at Logan cemetery.  They
homesteaded on the bluffs of the north bank of the Elkhorn River
north of the present town of Hooper, Nebraska.  His wife, Cordula,
died July 2, 1880, and John died May 1, 1883 at Hooper at the home
of his son, Oswald.  John and Cordula are buried at Logan cemetery.
 
He was survived by Anna Margaretha Kallenbach Moeller, Andreas,
Oswald, Barbara Margeretha Raasch, Evalyn Christina Erhardt,
Barbara Rosina Wagner, John Martin, Johann Martin, Elizabeth
Wagner, Frederick, Ernestine Henrietta Ollerman and Anna Catharine
Meyer.  He was preceded in death by daughters; Margaretha Elizabeth

Biography
 
Cordula Elizabeth Trautvetter, 65, was born on September 20, 1814
in Saxony, Germany.  She was born in or near the village of
Gumpelstadt, and her birth is recorded in the church records there.
However, her date of birth is shown as November 20, 1814. In the
1975 Logan cemetery survey by Mares and Petersen her date of death
is shown as July 2, 1880 and that she was 65 year 9 months and 12
days old.  Using this death date and age, her birth date computes
to be September 20, 1814.  I assume that this is the date she used.
 
On April 12, 1836 at Witzelroda, Thüringen, Germany she became John
Uehling's second wife.  The following children were born to them in
Germany before they emigrated to the USA; Dorothea Elisabetha
(Odelia), Oswald, Barabara Margeretha, Evalynn Christina, Barbara
Rosina, John Martin, Johann Martin and Elizabeth.
 
Odelia died in Germany, and some family historians believe that she
drowned at the age of 2 years.  John's daughter, Margaretha
Elisabetha from his first marriage, married Johann Caspar Kaiser
and remained in Germany.  Cordula, John and the other children
emigrated to the USA in 1852.  They travelled on the ship "Jason"
from Bremen, Germany to New York City, New York, and arrived in New
York City on August 10, 1852. Their first home in this country was
in Dodge county, Wisconsin, and they remained there until 1864.
The following children were born to them in Wisconsin; Fredrick,
Ernestine Henrietta and Anna Catharine.
 
Cordula, her husband, John, and some of the children joined a wagon
train coming to Nebraska.  They arrived at Logan Mills, Dodge
county, Nebraska on June 26, 1864, where they homesteaded north of
the Elkhorn river, north of the present town of Hooper, Nebraska.
Cordula Elizabeth died July 2, 1880, and is buried at Logan
cemetery.

Oswald Uehling Dead
 
Oswald Uehling, a pioneer of this city, and vicinity for many
years, passed away at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Albert Fritz
of Hooper, Monday morning. Cause of death being a paralytic stroke.
Mr. Fritz was with his father-in-law until 12:00 o'clock, Sunday
night and when Mrs. Fritz went to her father at 7, Monday morning,
she found him dead in his bed.

In 1870 Mr. Uehling and family moved into Hooper and he built the
mill and conducted it until a few years ago when he exchanged it
for a ranch in Cherry county.  He lived on the ranch until about a
year ago when he suffered his first paralytic stroke when he gave
over its management to his two sons, John and Joe.  He then came to
Hooper and had since made his home with Mrs. Fritz.  He was sick
all winter but was some better lately and was able to be up and
around as late as last Saturday. Sunday, however, he was confined
to his bed.  He was also a sufferer from asthma for a good many
years.

1864. He first took a homestead on one hundred and sixty acres,
upon which he placed improvements, including a half sod and half

feet, two large barns, 26x100 feet. He also set out an orchard and
an artificial grove. He added to his land until he claimed four
hundred and eighty acres, three hundred acres of which are under
the plow.  He lived on this place twenty-eight years and still owns

Obituary
 
Hooper Sentinel 
Thursday, Dec. 17, 1896
 
Once more the death knoll has sounded in our mist.  Once more we
are reminded that the earthly tabernacle is a thing of time and
that sooner or later each in turn must join the innumerable caravan
that has gone before.  "Flowers fall as well as oaks". Youth in its
buoyancy, manhood in it's prime, old age with its hoary locks is
brought to the common level of the sepulcher.
 
Elizabeth Keller was born Oct. 10, 1838, in the village of Schnet,
Saxony Meinige, Germany, and died at Hooper, Nebraska, Dec. 15,
1896, of cancer of the liver and stomach.
 
In 1852 she emigrated, with her parents, one sister and two
brothers, to the United States.  The family settled first at
Watertown, Wisconsin. In the year 1859 she was married to Oswald
Uehling, and in 1864, came to Dodge county, Nebraska.  In common
with the pioneers of those days, she with her husband and little
family, located on a homestead about 5 miles northeast of Hooper
and this was her home until 1891, when she removed to Hooper. Mrs.
Uehling was the mother of twelve children, four boys and eight
girls.  The oldest, a boy, died in 1865. at the age of 3 years. The
living are Mrs. Christena Bayer, of Pender, Mrs. Elizabeth Bott of
Manning, Utah, Mrs. Lizzie Heller, Mrs. Barbara Monnich, Mrs.
Lottie Fritz, John M., Conrad H., Martha, Susie, Rena, and Josie
Uehling, all residing in or near Hooper. For several weeks
immediately preceding her death, her sufferings were very severe
but she was at all times cheerful and resigned.
 
As a wife she was a model: loving, kind and ever thoughtful while
the children feel and realize that they have lost that most
precious of good gifts, a patient, loving mother.
 
Besides her husband and children she leaves to mourn for her, a
sister, Mrs. Burger, of Watertown, Wis. and two brothers, August
and Wm. Keller, of Hooper. The funeral services will be held from
the German Lutheran church in Hooper tomorrow (Friday) afternoon,
at 2 o'clock and will be conducted by Rev. Grauenhorst.  The
interment will be in the cemetery here.  The sorely bereaved family
will have the sympathy of a large circle of friends in their
affliction.
 
Uehling, Elizabeth

A Resident Since 1861 Passes Away Suddenly
 
When word was passed around Friday evening that August Wagner had
been stricken with heart failure and passed away soon afterward, a
sense of deep regret was heard on all sides.  His demise was
sudden, as up to that time he had seemed to be enjoying his usual
health and had partaken of a hearty evening meal.  He had risen
from the table and had started for another room when he was
stricken, with death coming a few moments later.
 
The death of this respected and well known man again brings us to
the realization that the ranks of the real pioneers of this section
is rapidly thinning.  In his sixty years' residence in this
community, Mr. Wagner shared the vicissitudes, trials and hardships
of the early settler and had seen this country grow from a land of
unbroken wilds and prairies to one of plenty and prosperity.  In
those early days he took a prominent part in the community's
affairs and was a man always ready, and never failing, to do any
task asked of him, and always unselfishly gave his aid to any
friend in time of need.  He had a large acquaintance and among
these he was always held in high esteem.
 
Carl Ludwig August Wagner was born in Middleschefland, November 7,
1845, and died at Hooper, Nebr., February 23, 1923, at the age of
77 years, 3 months and 16 days.  He came to America in 1852,
locating in Ohio and later removing to Wisconsin.  In 1863 he made
the overland trip to Nebraska and located on a farm near Logan
Creek, northeast of the present site of Hooper.  He was united in
marriage to Miss Elizabeth Uehling on October 9, 1868, and thus a
union of over fifty-four years is broken through the death of the
husband.  To this sacred union fifteen children were born, of whom
twelve survive.  They are Henry, Edward, Gilbert, Mrs. Henry
Mallette, Mrs. Ben Ott, Mrs. Herman Janssen, Mrs. Alfred Stroh, and
Mrs. Fred Dierking of Hooper, Mrs. John M. Uehling of Elizabeth,
Nebr., Wm. Wagner of Neligh, Mrs. Isaac Mallette of Craig and
Alfred Wagner of Ignacio, Colo.  A sister, Mrs. Joseph Stecher of
Fremont, also survives him.
 
The funeral services were held at the Zion's Lutheran Church at
1:30 Monday afternoon, the pastor, Rev. J. Schrader, preaching the
words of comfort to the sorrowing family and the large gathering of
friends who had come to thus pay their last respects to a friend
and neighbor. Interment was made in the Hooper cemetery(1).
 
The pall bearers were grandsons of the deceased, Harry Wagner,
Edward, Harold, Lester and Sherman Mallette and Fred Ott, Jr. Out
of town relatives here for funeral were: Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Wagner of
Neligh, Mr. and Mrs. Isaac Mallette and family of Craig, Mr. and
Mrs. Jos. Stecher of Fremont and Mr. and Mrs. Walter Binger of
Neligh, and Mrs. John Uehling of Elizabeth.

Another Pioneer Woman Answers Final Summons
 
Again we have been reminded of the frailty of our lives and of the
end of our days, in that one more of our numbers has been summoned
from this earth.  This time the call came to Mrs. August Wagner,
who passed away at 2:50 p.m. last Thursday, October l6, 1924, at
the home of her daughter, Mrs. Alfred Stroh.  The cause of her
death was due to a paralytic stroke she suffered the morning of the
day before. Previous to the stroke, Mrs. Wagner had been in her
usual health and the news of her illness and the shortly following
death brought to her immediate family, relatives and friends a
profound sorrow.
 
Elizabeth Uehling was born in Saxony, Germany, January 10, 1850,
and thus had attained the age of 74 years, 9 months and 10 days.
When a young girl she left the home land and emigrated with her
parents to the United States, the family locating in Dodge County,
Wisconsin. In 1864 they came to Nebraska, settling on a homestead
northeast of the present site of Hooper, and this community had
been her home ever since. On October 9, 1868, she was united in
marriage to August Wagner, and continued to reside on the farm
until twenty-five years ago when she and Mr. Wagner moved to town. 
Mr. Wagner died February 23, 1923, and since then she had made her
home with her daughter, Mrs. Stroh.
 
As a pioneer settler of this vicinity, Mrs. Wagner had gained a
wide acquaintanceship and her friends were legion.  She was a woman
intensely devoted to her home ties, beloved by friends as well as
by her family, never failing to giving her assistance to those
desiring her services and was always held in the highest esteem by
all in the community that had so long been her home.
 
This esteem was attested to Sunday afternoon when an assemblage
that completely filled and overflowed Zions Lutheran Church were
present to pay their last respects to the memory of this beloved
friend and neighbor.  Services at the church were held at two
o'clock and followed brief services at the Stroh home, the pastor,
Rev. G. F. R. Duhrkop, conducting them at both places. The pall
bearers were Lester and Sherman Mallette, Harold and Clifford
Mallette, Fred Ott and Earl Janssen, all grandsons of the deceased.
 
She was the mother of fifteen children, twelve of whom survive.
These are: Henry, Edward, Mrs. Henry Mallette, Mrs. Ben Ott, Mrs.
Herman E. Janssen, Mrs. Alfred Stroh and Mrs. Fred Dierking all of
Hooper and vicinity; Mrs. John M. Uehling, of Elizabeth; William of
Neligh: Mrs. Isaac Mallette of Craig; Alfred of Ignacio, Colo. and
Gilbert of Dodge, all of whom but Alfred were present at the
funeral. She is also survived by one sister, Mrs. John F. Meyer, of
Hooper and fifty grandchildren and twelve great-grandchildren.

The Hooper Sentinel 
November 1, 1900
 
George Wagner was born in Germany, June 12, 1836, and died at his
home near Hooper, Tuesday, Oct. 30, 1900 of cancer of the stomach.
 
The news of Mr. Wagner's death was a painful surprise to his
friends, many of whom were not aware of his sickness, which only
lasted about a week.
 
George Wagner came to the United States with his parents when but
15 years of age.  The family first settled near Cleveland, Ohio,
removing from there to Wisconsin.  In 1861 Mr. Wagner came to
Nebraska and filed on a piece of government land and which is now a
part of his old homestead.  In 1862 he enlisted in Co. A 2d
Nebraska Cavalry and with his regiment was sent northwest to guard
the frontier settlements against the Indians.  After eleven months
service the regiment was mustered out of service and he returned to
his Dodge County farm. As one of the pioneer settlers he
experienced the vicissitudes and privations of the early days of
the country, but his confidence in the state of his adoption never
failed.
 
In 1864 he was married to Miss Rosa Uehling.  To them were born
nine children, eight of whom are now living.  They are Edmund and
John, of Oklahoma City, Rosa, now Mrs. John Pueppka, of Sommeville,
Albert, Louis, George, Frank and Charles.
 
In his family Mr. Wagner was a kind husband and an indulgent
father, while as a friend and neighbor the was ever loyal and
accommodating. He was a member of the Logan German Lutheran church,
and the funeral services will be conducted from that church at 1
o'clock this afternoon, Rev. Walter officiating.
 
The interment will be in the cemetery near the church.

Page 671
 
George Wagner, Jr., one of the highly respected citizens of Hooper
township, residing on Section 11, came to Dodge County in June,
1861, over three decades ago.  He first located on the place he now
occupies. He filed on Government land, and at once commenced
improving it; he built a log house 16x20 feet, in which he lived
for thirteen years, and then built his present residence. His farm
is supplied with a good class of buildings through out, it also has
a fine orchard of two hundred trees, and a good grove, which he
planted at an early day.  He now has six hundred and forty acres of
land, one-half of which is under cultivation.  He has lived on this
place continually, since he effected his settlement in 1861.  In
October, 1862, he enlisted in Company A, Second Nebraska Cavalry
under Captain Peter S. Reed, and was mustered in at Florence;
served in the Border campaign eleven months and was discharged at
Omaha, after eleven months.  It was his ill fortune to live in the
country during the grasshopper years, and as a consequence saw many
hardships.
 
George, Jr., was born in Germany, in June, 1836; his parents were
George and Christena Wagner, natives of Germany, whose five
children were: Christena (deceased), George Jr., William, August,
Rosa.
 
He of whom we write remained in Germany until fifteen years of age,
when he in company with his parents came to America.  They landed
in New York, and from there went to Cleveland, Ohio, where he
worked at the carpenter's trade.  In 1856 the family moved to
Wisconsin, and remained there until they moved to Dodge County,
Nebraska.  He received a common school education.
 
He was united in marriage in August, 1864, to Rosa Uehling,
daughter of John and Eliza, Uehling, natives of Germany, whose
fourteen children were: Margaret, Andrew, Eliza, Odelia (deceased),
Oswald, Barbara, Christena, Rosa, John, Martin, Elizabeth,
Frederick, Henrietta (deceased), Catharine.
 
Our subject and his wife have the following children: Eliza
(deceased), born May 8, 1865; Edmund, born June 12, 1867; Rosa,
born August 21, 1869; John, born April 7, 1872; Albert, born
October 3, 1874; Louis, born January 12, 1877; George, born October
7, 1879; Franklin, born March 6, 1882; Charles, born December 6,
1884.
 
Mr. and Mrs. Wagner are members of the Lutheran Church and
politically he believes in the principles of the Democratic party.

The First Settlers A Little Biography and History of Some of the
Early Pioneers.
 
(Paper No. 2)
 
George Weigle with his wife and three children left Long Grove in
May 1857 in a covered wagon drawn by an ox team.  At this time Iowa
was but sparsely settled consequently after leaving Iowa City the
country was about all the same, prairie as far as the eye could
reach. All summer, practically, was spent in making the trip.  Many
inducements were held out to him to locate in Iowa but having heard
so much of the country west of the Missouri river he resisted all
temptations to stop before reaching his destination.  The crossing
from Iowa to Nebraska was made by ferry at Council Bluffs.
Fontanelle had opened up for business and the towns along the river
were jealous of the prominence likely to be attained by the inland
rival, so the land agents at the river directed them to Lyons, then
a city on paper only, and from there they went to West Point, which
was at this time a very small village. The winter of 1857 and 58
was spent in West Point where Mr. Weigle constructed a log house,
then the fashionable material.  Finding themselves running short of
provisions, Mr. Weigle, in company with a man by the name of
Frenchman, started for Council Bluffs to lay in a supply.  They
were gone so long that the family gave them up for lost. When they
did finally get home they had but little left of their original
purchases and the flour was so mouldy it was with difficulty that
it could be used.  Salt was a luxury and it was for years that none
could be had. Cattle suffered for the want of it and many of them
died.  In the spring of 1858 Mr. Weigle moved to Dodge county and
located on sw1/4 section 4, Twp 19, R 8, filing on the land and
afterwards adding to it by homestead and pre-emption rights. His
first house was built of logs thatched with slough grass.  This
soon gave way to one of frame and now the old place is adorned with
as neat and modern a farm house as is to be found anywhere and is
occupied by Gustav Weigle.
 
Mr. Weigle was born in Germany in 1820 and came to the United
States in 1853 and was followed by his family in 1855.  At the time
he came to Nebraska his family consisted of wife and five children,
Paulina, now Mrs. Jake Schwab, Frederika, now married to Adam
Schwab, and at present residing in Denver; Godfred, John and
Louisa, the wife of Henry Schwab. Mr. Weigle died Feb. 15, 1893.
His wife is still living and resides with her son Gustav on the old
place.
 
After building his first house he commenced, breaking prairie but
the family had to live, and as food was scarce and as fish were
abundant in Logan Creek the family lived at times on a fish diet
for weeks. During the Pawnee Indian scare of 1858 the family was
compelled to leave their home -as in fact did all the settlers at
that time - and go to Fontanelle for aid and protection.  While
they were away the Indians ransacked their homes and carried off
what of any value they could find. During one of these raids they
killed one of Mr. Weigle's oxen thus breaking his team and for some
time after he was compelled to put a cow to work in order to make
out a team.  While on another of these raids the Pawnees came to
his house and compelled the family to give up all the flour,
potatoes and meat-which happened to be about half a barrel of
catfish.  This left the family destitute and well nigh discouraged,
but with indomitable pluck they persevered and like all others won
out in the end.  From 1860 to 1872 it was a hard and trying time
but nothing to what the years 1873 to 1878 were.  Drouth and hot
winds burnt up most of the crops and the "hoppers" took what was
left. Some of the settlers who came in later became discouraged and
pulled up "stakes" but no so with this family and right well have
they been rewarded, but it is safe to say that their early
struggles won a foothold on the American desert and will never be
forgotten by any of the family who participated in them. Up to this
time the question of schools had occupied but little of the time of
the pioneers and this will occupy a portion of our next paper.

Obituary
 
The Hooper Sentinel 
March 29, 1900
 
Mrs. Christiana Weigle was Born in Wittenberg(1), Germany, August
3, 1824, and died at the residence of her son Gustave, near Hooper,
on Tuesday, March 27, 1900, the immediate cause of her death being
dropsy.
 
Mrs. Weigle came to the United States in 1855, and settled first
near Buffalo, N. Y., removing to Illinois in 1856, and to Nebraska
in 1857. In 1858 with her family she came to Dodge County, and
settled on a homestead and died at the same place although not in
the same house.
 
During the early years of her Nebraska life she saw many hardships,
and at times suffered from enforced privations, but a strong
constitution enabled her to endure it with great fortitude.
 
About seven years ago she was attacked with a dropsical affection
but with good care practically recovered, but the effects of this
severe illness were never entirely eradicated from her system.
 
Mrs. Weigle's death will recall to many of the pioneers incedents
in the early settlement of the county.  Many times was she called
on to go long distances to nurse the sick, and was always found
willing and happy in the knowledge that she could help to relieve
distress. In her home life she was devoted to her children and
husband, kind and affectionate, ever looking after their comfort
and wellfare.
 
She was the mother of ten children, seven of whom survive her. They
are Mesdames Jacob, Adam and Henry Schwab, Gotfred, John, Gustave
and Mary Weigle.
 
In religion she was a German Lutheran and the funeral services were
held from the residence to the Logan German Lutheran Church, Rev.
Grauenhorst being the officiating minister.  The interment was in
the Logan Cemetery by the side of her husband, who died in 1893.
 
(1) She was born at Bittenfeld, Baden-Württemberg, Germany.  In the
1860 and 1870 U.S. census she lists her birthplace as Württemberg.
Wittenberg is a city southwest of Berlin. Württemberg, a state, is
now combined with Baden to form the state Baden-Württemberg.

Biography
 
George Weigle Jr., 28, was born on February 8, 1859 in Nebraska.
There is a question about his actual birth place.  Some sources
report his birth place as West Point, Nebraska, but if the family
moved from West Point to the Logan Creek community of Dodge county
in 1858, then he would have been born at Logan Creek in Dodge
county.  I believe that his birth place is Logan Creek in Dodge
county.  He died at Logan Creek, near Hooper Nebraska, on November
23, 1887, and is buried in the Logan cemetery.
 
His parents were Johann George Weigle and Christena Friederika
Kraemer. George Jr.'s parents are natives of Bittenfeld,
Württemberg, Germany, and after emigrating to the USA they lived in
Black Rock Dam, New York and Long Grove, Illinois before coming to
Nebraska.
 
On October 2, 1887 George Jr. married Maria Josephine Ithen at
Hooper, Nebraska.  His wife was a native of Switzerland.  They had
