The Omaha World Herald
April 20, 1894

Last Friday aternoon litttle Otto Borcher of Scribner, aged 2 years,
accidently hung himself.  He had been playing around home all the
afternoon and about 4 o'clock his mother missed him, and it was at
first thought that he had toddled off to a neighbor's, but as he
could not be found, there was a search of the place made and he was
found hanging under a self-binder, dead.  It is thought that he
crawled under the machine to play with some puppies, and in going
out, a piece of iron that is intended to prevent straw from wrapping
around the axle, caught his clothing at the back of his neck and he
was unable to free himself and slowly strangled to death.

Obituary

The Hooper Sentinel 
January 4, 1900

Buer - Gerhard Frederick Buer was born in Hanover, Germany, Nov.
29, 1816, and died at the home of his son in Hooper, Nebr., Jan.
3rd, 1900 at the age of 83 years, 1 month and 4 days, of Bright's
disease, after an illness of about 4 weeks.

His boyhood and youth were spent in his native country, but in 1858
he emigrated to the United States, settling in Indiana where he
made his home until 1884 when be removed to Dodge county, Nebraska,
to make his home with his son, John F. Buer, and where he lived
until his death.

Grandfather Buer was naturally strong and healthy, and until about
4 weeks ago his health had been considered good, but the
infirmities of age were slowly but surely undermining his splendid
constitution and he was suddenly stricken down.  His sickness
developed so quickly and was so painful that his attending
physicians decided on an operation, but even this would not do and
his strength was not sufficient to combat the disease and burden of
many years and he sank slowly but steadily until the summons came
to "cross the dark river."

He leaves of his immediate family but one son, John F. Buer, who
with his wife, 9 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren will mourn
his loss.

In religion Mr. Buer was a member of the German Evangelical
Lutheran church and his funeral services will be conducted by his
pastor Rev. Bergt from the home to the German Luth-church in Hooper
at 1 o'clock (tomorrow) Friday afternoon. The interment will be in
the German cemetery north of town.

History of The Elkhorn Valley 
Page 527

John F. Buer, residing at Hooper, came to Dodge County, in the
spring of 1870, and located in what was then known as Logan
Precinct of Dodge County, where he took a homestead of eight acres,
upon which he made good improvements, and lived for about six
years, and kept adding to his land, until he had two hundred and
forty acres.  At the time of his coming, his nearest neighbor was
one and a half miles away.  In 1885, he moved from his place to
Hooper, where he was elected constable, collector and also Marshall
of the town.  He also engaged at auctioneering, which he has
followed more or less for ten years, during which time he has
served as deputy sheriff of Dodge County for one and one-half
years.

Our subject was born in Germany, September 24, 1848, the son of
George and Mary Buer, natives of Germany, whose three children
were; Henry (deceased); Mary and John F.  Our subject was ten years
of age when he came from Germany.  They landed at Baltimore in
1858, and from there went to Jackson County, Indiana, where the
family remained and where he remained until he was twenty years of
age and came to Dodge County, Nebraska, where he has since lived.

He had a common school education, and was united in marriage
October 1, 1871, to Lizzie Trimple, the daughter of Gerhart and
Alesa (Weebold) Trimple, natives of Germany, whose three children
were; Lizzie, George and Hannah.

Our subject and his wife are the parents of eight children, born in
the following order;  Lizzie, August 14, 1870, Louise, July 14,
1875; John, May 20, 1887; George, July 3, 1881; Hannah, June 1,
1884; Martin, August 27, 1886; Henry, July 16, 1889, and Alla,
December 22, 1891.

Politically, our subject affiliates with the Democratic party, and
in religious matters is a Lutheran.  Being among the early settlers
of the county, it was his ill fortune to be in the country when the
grasshoppers made such sad havoc.

Herbert Frese Called

Death entered the home circle of Rev. H. C. Julius Frese, pastor of
the St. Johns Evangelical Lutheran church, northwest of town,
Monday, September 6, and took therefrom the son and brother,
Herbert, aged 9 years and 10 days.  Master Herbert's death occurred
at the Fremont hospital to where he had been taken last week
Wednesday, and was caused by acute inflammation of the pancreas.
His illness dates back but two weeks when he complained of pains in
his legs.  At first nothing much was thot of it, but the pains
gradually increased and went up higher into his body.  All that
could be done by medical skill and loving hands was to no avail,
death coming to relieve him of his sufferings. Rev. and Mrs. Frese
were with their son when the final summons, the former having gone
down with Herbert to the hospital and Mrs. Frese being summoned on
Thursday when it was seen that life on this earth would not be
long.

Herbert, who had just passed his ninth birthday, was born on the
church premises of which his father is pastor, on August 26, 1911. 
His short span of life had been spent out there and during this
time he had endeared himself to all who knew him.  His death cast a
gloom over that community and the heartfelt sympathy of the friends
of the family goes out to them in their time of sorrow. Besides the
parents he leaves to mourn his untimely loss two brothers and two
sisters, Alfred, Elmer, Lydia and Else.  The body was brought home
Monday evening.  Funeral services will be held at the family
residence at 1:30 this afternoon and later at the church.  Rev. H.
Pflug of Scribner conducting the services. Interment will be made
in the church cemetery.

The Hooper Sentinel June 3, 1909

Herman F. Havekost Dead

The community was greatly shocked to learn of the death of Herman
F. Havekost, one of our most prosperous and prominent young
farmers, at his home east of Hooper Sunday afternoon.

He was fist taken sick last Wednesday evening, he grew much worse
Thursday and after a consultation of doctors a surgeon was summoned
from Omaha and he was operated upon for appendicitis Friday
evening. The case was a very critical one and no hopes were
entertained for his recovery, although everything medical skill
could do was resorted to that his life might be saved.

Mr. Havekost was born, Sept. 25, 1879, and has resided in this
vicinity during his entire life time.  He was married to Miss
Eliese Krueger, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Chris Krueger, on February
10, 1904, and to them were born three children, two sons and a
daughter, who with the grief stricken wife are left to mourn his
untimely departure.  The parents of the deceased are Mr. and Mrs.
Herman Havekost, residing north of this city, and he also leaves
several brothers and sisters.

Until about two years ago Mr. Havekost lived on the home place with
his parents, he than purchased the Siebrasse farm, east of Hooper,
on which he has made extensive improvements and arranged into a
model country home.  He was held in the highest esteem by the
entire community and was considered one of the foremost
agricultural men in this section of the country.

Funeral services were held yesterday morning at 10 o'clock from the
German Lutheran church, east of Hooper, conducted by Rev. Lang, and
interment was made in the German Lutheran cemetery north of town.

Mrs. Carl Schulenberg is Called by Death Tuesday

Four years of suffering from a complication of ailments was brought
to a close for Mrs. Carl Schulenberg on Tuesday, May 27, 1930, when
she passed into death at 1:45 that afternoon.  In her illness Mrs.
Schulenberg was a patient sufferer and was given the best of
medical attention.

The death of Mr. Schulenberg removes a life-long resident from this
community.  As Elise Fredericka Katharine Kroeger, daughter of the
late Mr. and Mrs. Christian Kroeger, she was born on the farm north

years, 2 months and 21 days.  She received her early education in
the rural school in that district and was a confirmed member of St.
Johns Lutheran church and of which she was always a faithful
attendant as long as her health would permit.

On February 10, 1904, she was united in marriage to Herman F.
Havekost who passed away May 30, 1909.  To this union were born
three children, all now living.  After his death she moved to
Hooper to make her home with her mother, and after ten years
residence in town moved onto a place 2ę miles northwest of Hooper.
Her marriage to Carl Schulenberg occurred on February 22, 1923, and
since then had lived on a farm. This spring they moved to town and
her last days were spent here.

Mrs. Schulenberg was a woman well liked by all who knew her, a
devoted wife and a loving mother.  By her passing she will be
greatly missed by her family and by her many friends.

Close surviving relatives are the husband and three children,
Melvin and Lawrence Havekost and Mr. Fred Johannsen all of this
place and vicinity. She is also survived by two grandchildren and
by three brothers and two sisters, Herman Kroeger of Denver, Colo.,
and Fred and Harry Kroeger, Mrs. Chris Schulenberg and Mrs. G. F.

Pioneer Settler Called By Death Last Thursday

Casper Hoegemeyer, one of the pioneer settlers of this community,
passed away at 10:25 Thursday morning, November 22, 1928, at his
farm home 3ę miles northwest of Hooper.  Death followed an eight
months illness from kidney and heart trouble, and though his health
failed rapidly during this time, yet Mr. Hoegemeyer kept up his
courage and tried to be up and around as usual every day until his
strength failed him, and the sleep that knows no awakening finally
came to him.

His death removes from this community a man highly respected by his
fellowmen, one, who as a pioneer staked his all on the future of
this country and eventually saw his faith in the country rewarded
through hard work with a number of fine and properties. As a
pioneer he suffered and endured the trials of the early days, but
his faith never faltered and he proved himself to be one the
successful farmers of the locality. He was an active man up to his
last, and always took a particular interest in matters that were
for the betterment of the community.

Mr. Hoegemeyer had attained the age of 79 years and eight months,
having been born on March 22, 1849, in Germany.  In 1869 when a
young man of 20 years he came to the United States, coming west by
rail to Council Bluffs, Iowa, and then by boat to Washington county
where he worked as a farm hand for a couple of years.  In 1871 he
took up a homestead in Dodge county later buying the farm northwest
of Hooper and since had been a resident of the county.  On July 11,
1873, he was united in marriage to Miss Anna Stork.  To this union
eight children were born, a son, Henry, dieing in infancy.  The
living children are William of Scribner, August and Mrs. Henry
Heitshusen of Lyons, Casper of Dodge, Christ, Mrs. Emil P. Miller
and George of Hooper.  Mrs. Hoegemeyer died September 6, 1914, and
since then Mr. Hoegemeyer has made his home with his son, George.

The funeral was held Saturday afternoon, with services at 12:30 at
the late home and at one o'clock from the St. Johns Lutheran church
of which the deceased was an active member. The Pastor, Rev. Theo.
Norden, spoke the words of comfort to the sorrowing relatives and
to the large gathering of neighbors and friends who filled the
church to overflowing to pay their last tribute to the memory of
one who had always held their utmost esteem.  Interment was made in
the church cemetery.

Old Settlers Called by Death

Mrs. Mary Hoegermeyer

Mrs. Mary Hoegermeyer, a former highly respected and well known old
settler of the community north of Hooper, and widow of the late
Henry Hoegermeyer, passed away Monday morning at her home in
Scribner following a short illness.  She was past 84 years of age.

Funeral services will be held from the home at one o'clock this
Thursday afternoon and at 1:30 from St. Peters Lutheran church in
Scribner. Rev. G. W. Lobeck officiating, interment will be made in
the St. John Lutheran cemetery north of Hooper.

Mrs. Hoegermeyer was born in Hanover, Germany, April 28, 1850. She
came to the United States in 1873, and that same year was married
to Henry Hoegermeyer.  The couple settled on a farm three miles
north of Hooper which remained her home for nearly 50 years. In
these years she was a much beloved resident of that community and
her friends were everyone who knew her.

Mr. Hoegermeyer died 20 years ago and in 1920 she moved from the
farm home to establish her residence with her daughter, Miss
Augusta, in Scribner.

Surviving her are four sons and four daughters.  They are Henry of

Anna C. Hoegermeyer was born on February 11, 1874 to Heinrich F.
and Maria J. (Schulte) Hoegermeyer.  She died on September 1874 and
is buried at St. John's cemetery, Hooper, Nebraska.

The St. John's Evangelical Lutheran Church Book 1869-1994 lists an
Anna C. born to Heinrich F. Hoegemeyer and Maria J. Schulte on 02-
11-1874, but Henry F. Hoegermeyer's obituary in The Hooper Sentinel
of June 4, 1914, states that "nine children were born to this union
all of whom are now living".  The church book also shows an Anna M.
born to Heinrich F. Hoegemeyer and Maria J. Schulte on 04-04-1875. 
Nine children are listed in the 1914 obituary, Anna C. must have
been overlooked.

Otto Hoegermeyer

Located in a rich agricultural region, Otto Hoegermeyer stands high
amon the enterprising and self-reliant men who are so ably
conducting the farming interests in Everett Twonship, the geater
part of is land being in a yielding condition, and the improvements
on his place being  of a good, practical, and substantial character.
Although native born, his birth having occurred November 18, 1887,
in Dodge County, he is of foreign ancestry, his parents Henry F. and
Mary Hoegermeyer, having been born on German soil.

Brought up in Germany, Henry F. Hoegermeyer was educated in the
public schools, and, in common with his youthful companions, served
the required time in the German army.  He subsequently learned the
blacksmithís trade, which he followed for a while.   In 1872 he came
to the United States, and having settled in Dodge County, Nebraska,
secured work on a farm.  Having accumulated some money, he wisely
invested it in land, and having made good improvements on it
continued life as a farmer and stock raiser, branches of industry
that proved profitable.   On his well cultivated estate he resided
until his death, in 1914.  He was not affiliated with any political
party, being an independent voter.  Religously he was a member St.
Johnís Lutheran Church, to which his widow, who is now a resident of
Dodge County, belongs.  Nine children were born to their union, as
follows: Anna, wife of Mr. Heermann, a farmer in Stanton County;
Louise, wife of William Moeller, who is engaged in farming in Dodge
County; Minnie, wife of Otto Langewisch a Dodge County
agriculturalist; Mary; Augusta; Henry, a farmer in Cuming County;
Fred, engaged in farming in South Dakota; Herman, farming in
Washington County; and Otto, subject of this sketch.

Completing his early education in the rural schools, Otto
Hoegermeyer worked with his father several seasons in the parental
homestead.  Starting n life for himself in 1914, Mr. Hoegermeyer has
since carried on general farming with good results, making a
specialty to some extent of raising a good grade of stock.  He is a
stockholder in the Hooper Mill and Grain Company, which is doing a
extensive business.  In politics he is independent, as a voter being
bound to no party.   Religiously, true to the faith in which he was
reared, he is a Lutheran, being a trustworthy member of St. Johnís
Church.

Mr. Hoegermeyer married, in 1916, Lydia Whitman, who was born in
Indiana, and they have two children, Walter and Hugo.

Hi Harry,       
I was looking at the listing for St. John's Cemetery at Hooper,
NE and saw the obituary for Henry F. Horst and his wife Anna Horst.
For Anna Horst, you were looking for more information. 

I can fill in some details on her.  She was a niece of John
Christian Schulenberg that is also buried in the St. John's Cemetery
at Hooper, NE. I believe her parents and most of her brothers and
her sister are buried at the Scribner, NE cemetery. 

Anna Adaline Gerhardine Schulenberg was born 17 April 1892 at
Babbtown, Osage County, MO. She was the daughter of Bernhard
Dietrich Heinrich Schulenberg and Bertha Dorathea Johanna Ahlers.
Anna married Heinrich F. Horst on 27 May 1915 at the St. John's
Lutheran Church at Babbtown, MO.  This information is from the Church
Record Book at Babbtown. Babbtown was a small German community
centered around the church. When the railroad came through that part
of the country, it was not built near Babbtown, but closer to the
river.  People began building a community near the railroad, and that
place became the town of Meta. Babbtown and Meta are only about 4
miles apart.  

Most of the Babbtown families came from several small communities
near Oldenburg, Germany. There seems to be a strong connection
between the families at Babbtown/Meta and the Hooper area.  Many of
the families that started at Babbtown later moved to the area around
Hooper.

History of the Elkhorn Valley 
Page 611

Christian Kroger, one of the enterprising agriculturists residing
on Section 8, Hooper township, Dodge County, came to these parts in
the fall of 1867, and first located in Cuming township, where he
took a homestead of eighty acres, which he improved, including the
erection of a frame house 16x24 feet and bought another eighty
acres of land. He had an artificial grove of five acres and a small
orchard on his place. In 1883 he sold out and moved to Hooper and
engaged in merchandising for one year, when he sold and bought the
farm which he now occupies, which consists of four hundred and
sixty-four acres of partly improved land. He has a good class of
farm buildings including barns, granary and double-cribs; also a
grove of five acres and an orchard of seventy five trees.  He
commenced in Dodge County without one dollar's worth of property
and during the grasshopper years they destroyed nearly his entire
crop.  Not having any oats he was compelled to feed his horses
wheat.

Christian Kroger was born in the German Empire, December 1844, the
son of John and Sophia Kroger, natives of Germany, who had a family
of six children; John Jr., Sophia, Christian, Catharine,
Christopher and Mary, all of whom are living.  He remained in his
native land until twenty-four years of age, during which year he
landed in New York, and from there came direct to Nebraska. His

Mrs. Christian Kroeger Passed Away Dec. 27th

Again the Grim Reaper has passed through the ranks of the old
residents and garnered another of our splendid pioneer women unto
himself. Mrs. Christian Kroeger passed away last Thursday evening
at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Chris Schulenberg, after a long
illness which was complicated and rendered more serious by her age.

Sophia Roggensack was born Sept. 8, 1850, in Mecklenburg, Schwerin,
Germany, and came to America with the parents at the age of 6
years. The family first settled at Chicago where they remained for
three years when they came to Nebraska locating near West Point.
Later her parents took a homestead one mile north of Hooper, the
farm on which Harry Kroeger resides.  On October 1, 1869, she was
united in marriage to Christian Kroeger, who preceded her in death
about seventeen years ago. To this union eleven children were born,
six of whom survive. About twenty years ago Mr. and Mrs. Kroeger
retired from active farm life, moving to Hooper and making their
home in the east part of town. It was here that the husband and
father died in January, 1911.  His widow continued to make her home
in Hooper until about four years ago when she went to live with her
children until her death at her daughter's home on December 27,
1928, at the age of 78 years, 3 months and 19 days.

Mrs. Kroeger was one of the finest types of the pioneer days, a
good mother, a true friend, and a kind neighbor.  There are many
left to mourn the passing of such a woman.

The surviving children are Herman of Denver, Colo., Mrs. Chris
(Anna) Schulenberg, Mrs. Geo. F. (Linda) Rabe, Mrs. Carl (Eliese)
Schulenberg, Fred and Harry, all of Hooper.  She is also survived
by sixteen grandchildren, one great-grandchild and one sister, Mrs.
Lena Koehler of Uehling.  The many friends of these bereaved ones
extend to them the deepest sympathy in their time of sorrow.

The funeral services were held on Sunday afternoon from the Chris
Schulenberg home at one o'clock and from the St.  Johns Lutheran
church at 1:30, Rev. Theo. Norden, pastor of St. Johns church,
conducted the services which were very largely attended. Interment
was made in the church cemetery.

Pioneer Woman Called to Her Eternal Rest

Last Wednesday morning, July 24, at 10 o'clock at the Scribner
hospital occurred the death of another of the grand old pioneer
women of this vicinity when Mrs. Caroline Langemeier, aged 81
years, was called to her eternal rest.  She had been a patient at
the hospital for the past nine weeks when she was taken there for
treatment after a fall which resulted in a broken hip.  Her
advanced age made it impossible for her to rally from the effects
of this accident which culminated in her death.

Caroline Dipper was born at Rising Sun, Indiana, September 24,
1847, and died at Scribner, Nebr., July 24, 1929.  She grew to
womanhood at the place of her birth and was there united in
marriage to H. H. Langemeier who preceded her in death about 14
years ago.  They came to Dodge county 48 years ago and for nearly
half a century this county was her home. For over twenty years she
and her husband and family resided on a farm north of Hooper,
moving to Scribner about 26 years ago.  Since the death of her
husband, Mrs. Langemeier had been making her home with her
children.  She was the mother of nine children, three sons and two
daughters surviving to mourn the loss of a loving devoted mother.
They are George of Hooper; Harry of Wausa; Willie of Plainview;
Mrs. Wm Schiermeier of West Point, and Mrs. Herman Nieman of
Perham, Minn. She is also survived by 35 grandchildren and 12
great-grandchildren. Mrs. Langemeier was reared in the Lutheran
faith and was ever active in the service of her church.  She was a
member of the Scribner Lutheran church and showed her true
Christian spirit by her many acts of neighborly kindness and her
devotion to home and family throughout the four score years of her
life.

Funeral services were held from the home of her son George,
Saturday afternoon at 2 o'clock and from the St. John Lutheran
church northwest of Hooper at 2:30.  The English part of the
service was conducted by Rev. Lobeck of Scribner and the German
part by Rev. Theo. Norden of St. Johns.  A large concourse of
relatives, friends and former neighbors were present to pay their
last respects to the departed. Burial was made in the church
cemetery.  The following out of town relatives were present: Mr.
and Mrs. H. Nieman of Perham, Minn., Mr. and Mrs. Harry Langemeier
and daughter and Mr. and Mrs. Albert Enquist of Wausa, Mr. and Mrs.
Will Langemeier and son, Mr. and Mrs. Raymond Langemeier, and Mrs.
Kate Langemeier of Plainview, Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Schiemeier, Mr. and
Mrs. Henry Will and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Albert Wickert and

Hooper Man Dies of Car Injuries

Family and friends of George Langemeier, retired Hooper farmer,
were grieved and shocked when it became known early Tuesday morning
that he had passed away at 6 o'clock from the effects of injuries
received the previous afternoon when he was struck by an automobile
while walking west with his son, John, on the paved highway near
the Basler service station.

The fatal accident occurred around 3:30 Monday afternoon when
Walter Gosker of Washington county, driving in the same direction
that the two men were walking, attempted to pass them.  According
to all reports, Gosker is exonerated from blame, since he was
driving at a medium rate and sounded his horn as a signal that he
would pass.  It is believed that Mr. Langemeier became confused,
stepping directly into the pathway of the oncoming car and
sustaining shock and injuries from which he could not rally.

George Bernard Langemeier, son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Herman
Langemeier, was born April 9, 1873, at Rising Sun, Ind., and died
at Hooper, Nebr., October 28, 1941, aged 68 years, 6 months and 19
days. He came to Nebraska with his parents in 1882 and settled on a
farm northwest of Hooper in which neighborhood he lived almost
continuously excepting for one year at Central City and three years
at Atkinson, moving to Hooper from the farm when he retired last
year.

He was united in marriage to Miss Bertha Stover on May 25, 1899,
and to their union a family of ten children were born, two dying in
infancy. Surviving to mourn the sudden and tragic death of a
beloved husband and father are his widow, one daughter and seven
sons.  They are, John, Edwin, Elmer and Clara (Mrs. Norman Keller),
all of Hooper, Walter and Arnold of Nickerson, Gilbert of Scribner,
and Wilbert of Snyder; two brothers, William of Plainview and Harry
of Hartington; two sisters, Mrs. Clara Schiemmeier of West Point
and Mrs. Louisa Nieman of Perham, Minn.  Thirteen grandchildren
also survive as well as a host of friends who had learned to trust
and respect him thru out the years.

A member of St. John Lutheran church over a period of 21 years, Mr.
Langemeier was faithful to the doctrines and teachings of his faith

Fred Luecking, who formerly lived in the neighborhood of St. John's
church, northwest of Hooper, and later moved to Scribner, died in a
hospital in Omaha Tuesday.  He had been very sick since Saturday,
and on Monday was taken to the hospital, but nothing could be done
to save his life.  He had reached the age of nearly sixty-two
years, and was highly respected by his neighbors in the community
in which he had lived so long.

Frederick William Luecking was born in Westfalen, Germany, July 21,
1841, and came to the United States and to this community in 1868. 
He had been married twice.  The first time to Margaret Becker in
1870. Of this union five children were born, three of whom are now
living. In 1887 his first wife died, and a few years later he
married Augusta Degner, of West Point, who survives him.

The funeral will be held this afternoon from St. John's church,
conducted by Rev. A. Bergt, and the remains will be interred at the
cemetery three miles northwest of town.

Grim Reaper Saddens Another Hooper Home

The home of Mr. and Mrs. George L. Meyer, of north of Hooper, was
cast into the depths of mourning last Thursday, when their three-
year-old son and brother, Lynes, passed away at 9:15 that evening
at the Nicholas Senn hospital, Omaha, to where he had been taken
that morning by Mr. Meyer for treatment and operation for an
ailment diagnosed as appendicitis by physicians at the hospital,
but death came before an operation could be performed.  He had been
sick about four days. The suddenness of his death came as a great
shock to the family at home and to their relatives and many
friends.

Mr. Meyer brought the body of his little son home, Friday
afternoon, where it was kept until Sunday, when funeral services
were held that afternoon at 1:30 at the home and at 2 o'clock at
the St. Johns's Ev. Lutheran church, the pastor, Rev. Theo. Norden
conducting them and speaking words of comfort to the sorrowing
family, and to the relatives and many friends assembled there.
Interment was made in the church cemetery.

Master Lynes was born on June 16, 1921, and had thus only reached
the tender age of 2 years, 8 months and 12 days when summoned to
the heavenly home.  He was a bright young child, much endeared by
his parents and brothers, as well as by relatives and friends of
the family. His loss is deeply mourned and the sympathy of the
community goes out to the family in their time of sorrow. Besides
his parents he is survived by two brothers, Louis and Donald.

Casper Moeller Called By Death

After a span of life which covered about a century of time, Casper
Moeller, Hooper's oldest pioneer resident, laid down his earthly
burdens and passed away to his eternal rest at about 3:20 Saturday
morning, October 31, 1936, of infirmities due to his advanced age. 
Had Mr. Moeller lived until next spring, he would have been 98
years of age, an age vouchsafed to few of us and one which sees
almost unimaginable changes in world history.

During his more able days, Mr. Moeller loved to relate tales of the
experiences he had lived through as a pioneer settler of a new
undeveloped country.  His life history is also a history of this
community, of Hooper since its very beginning.

Born March 30, 1844, in Westphalia, Germany, he grew to young
manhood there and was united in marriage to Joanna Langemeier, and
in 1869 they with their eldest son, C. Henry, left their native
land, making their crossing in one of the slow sailing vessels of
that time. They came directly to Dodge county in search of a
favorable location, Mr. Moeller first finding employment near
Arlington but not for long, as he soon purchased a 160-acre tract
of school land three miles northwest of the present site of Hooper
where they made their first permanent home, the place now occupied
by his son, John H. C. Moeller. Mr. Moeller worked and prospered,
adding to his land holdings from time to time and becoming
generally known as a successful farmer and stockraiser, by his
thrift and careful management attaining a place of prominence and
influence throughout the county.

Besides, his farm interests he was also active in other affairs of
the community.  He helped form the Farmers Mutual Home Insurance
company in 1872 and remained its president for 42 years, being
president also for a number of years of the former Dodge County
Bank of Hooper.

Mr. Moeller retired from active farm life in 1909 and came to
Hooper to live in the home where his death occurred.  His wife
preceded him in death, passing away in 1925.  He is survived by
three daughters and one son, John H. C. Moeller.  The daughters are
Mrs. E.  G. Niebuhr, with whom he made his home since the death of
his wife: Mrs. J. H. Hartenberger, Redbud, Ills., and Mrs. E. J.
Rink of Hooper.  He is also survived by 25 grandchildren and 29
great-grandchildren.

Funeral services for this highly respected citizen were held
Tuesday afternoon, first from the home here in Hooper and then from
St. John's Lutheran church, northwest of Hooper, which Mr. Moeller
helped to found many years ago and in which he remained a faithful
worshipper to the end of his days, attending its services as long
as his health permitted. Rev. Theo. Norden, pastor of the church,
conducted the services which were largely attended by old time
neighbors and friends of the deceased and his sorrowing family.
Interment was made in the church cemetery with Wollmer & Warne in
charge.

Additional Notes Casper Moeller emigrated from Bremen, Germany
aboard the ship "Donau" arriving at New York on April 26, 1869.

PIONEER HISTORY OF CASPER MOELLER

Casper Moeller, probably Hooper's most aged citizen, who became
ninety March 30th of this year is a native of Germany.  A citizen
of two counties, a resident of two countries.  What great changes
have taken place in his native land since the day of his birth.
When he came into the world Germany was a confederation of states
with Prussia as the strongest in the group.  He was twenty years
old when Schleswig-Holstein was taken from Denmark. He was a
citizen of the German Confederation until 1866 then a citizen of
the North German Confederation until he left for America in 1869.
By coming to the United States when he did he escaped serving in
the Franco-Prussian War of 1870-1874.  The second year after coming
to this country Germany became an empire and the King of Prussia
was made the emperor of Germany. Since the World War Germany has
become a republic and now under the dictatorship of Hitler. Mr.
Moeller is a peer of his community and also of the state of
Nebraska having settled here sixty five years ago, when Nebraska as
a state was but two years old.

It was his privilege to cross the Atlantic Ocean on one of the
first steam ships used by Germany.  The time he came over was the
second trip the vessel had made.  They were three weeks in coming. 
This was considered a remarkable feat in that day. He and his wife
and a baby son Henry constituted the family. The baby was a year
old on the second of March.  On the seventh of the same month they
started west.  Severe storms were encountered all the way.  The
lightning and thunder were terrible. Everyone of them was
desperately sick.  The baby had started to walk before they left
Germany but it was a month after they landed that he was able to
walk again.  The fear of storm and the dread of the sea sickness
were so marked that though they longed to return to their native
land they dreaded the possibility of going thru another such
experience and never attempted it.  They encountered fog so much of
the way that travel was difficult and dangerous.  While out in mid
ocean their vessel collided with an English boat and sprang a leak.
Fortunate for them that it was not more serious and that they were
able to proceed on their way. Casper Moeller and his family came
direct to Arlington, Neb. Here lived an uncle, one of the Storks.
He soon registered for a quarter of section of land three miles
north of Hooper. There was no Hooper then.  It was school land and
he bought it for $7 an acre. It was raw prairie sod. Securing some
cotton wood lumber at the Uehling saw mill he built a two room
house. Later as circumstances permitted he added a kitchen to their
small prairie home.  He used oxen to break up the sod.  When asked
why he did not use horses he replied "we could not afford it". His
yoke of oxen cost him $320.  He paid $500 for his first team of
horses.  When Mr. Moeller first settled here Indians were numerous.
Often he would not see a white person for several weeks. He never
had any trouble with the red men.  In the earlier years he employed
an Indian and his family.  There was the man, his squaw and four
children, two of them being boys old enough to assist.  He used
them during the harvest season. On one occasion a large band of
Sioux warriors came from the north and were going south to battle
with another tribe of Indians. All day long this band of war
painted redskins, mounted on their ponies, rode across his farm.
There were no modern means of communication then so he never knew
what Indians they attacked or with what results.  If any of them
survived the battle they returned home by another route.

The Munderloh family were their nearest neighbors. Along the
Elkhorn river were the Gerd Monnich, the Rogensack, the Schwab, the
Weigle, and the Busch families who had come in an earlier day.  To
the north of them was an open uninhabited prairie.  Those earliest
settlers selected land close to the streams so as to have plenty of
water and timber for fuel and shelter.  Before he finished digging
a well on his place Mr. Moeller had to get his water out of Logan
Creek.  The knowledge of microbes did not haunt these early
pioneers.

Calhoun, near Omaha, was then their main trading post. There were
no bridges across streams, they followed the earlier trails which
led them to the places easiest and safest for fording the creeks
and rivers. It required several days to reach their destination,
they had to wait their turn at the mill. These were great occasions
for fellowship.  Here they gathered news about other sections of
the county.  In the dining room of their present home in this city
is a clock purchased the year they came, 1869.  It still is the
family time piece and its presence is a constant reminder of the
experiences of those first pioneering days.  Coming across the
Clark Creek bottom, the highway's ice and his horses not being
shod, the first thing they knew the entire outfit slide off the
grade into icy water. Provisions, clock and all got a good
drenching. It is interesting to hear those aged pioneers tell of
the prices they paid in their day.  Of course time, place,
circumstances varied the schedule considerable.  The first heifer
he bought was valued at $90. He bought it for $80, his uncle made
this reduction as a gift to give encouragement to the new settler. 
Wishing to raise some hogs he bought a piggy sow for which he paid
seventy dollars.  Coal oil was sixty cents a gallon.  No wonder
they used it as little as possible and went to bed early.  We
probably would do the same if we had to pay such a price for it.

90 YEARS OLD

Casper Moeller, one of the very few remaining real pioneer settlers
of this locality, was 90 years old last Friday, and in honor of
this event a gathering of his children and grandchildren was held
at the home of his son in law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. E. G.
Niebuhr, in this city that afternoon.  Others also dropped in to
pay their respects to this highly esteemed and well known pioneer
citizen.  Though his health is not what it might be and being kept
to his home by his ailments. Mr. Moeller is able to be up and about
the house and still maintains a great deal of interest in life, his
reading keeping him well posted on the events of the day.

Born in Germany March 30, 1844, he resided there until young
manhood, and came to America in 1867 and took up a home on 160
acres of school land he purchased north of the present site of
Hooper.  His place is the present home of his son, John H. C.
Moeller.  By thrift and careful management Mr. Moeller acquired
other tracts in that community and eventually became one of the
large land holders in this locality. Besides his farm interests he
also became active in other affairs of the community.  He helped
form the Farmers Mutual Home Insurance Company in 1872 and remained
it's president for 42 years and for a number of years was president
of the former Dodge County Bank.  His long time residence in these
parts is full of many tales of interest of early day life and he
takes much pleasure in telling stories of incidents that made life
interesting in pioneering days and worth the while to "stick it
out" when many others became discouraged and left for other places.

He retired from active farm life in 1909 and came to Hooper to live
and enjoy the last years of life in the rest and comfort he had so
well earned and the respect and esteem of friends.  All join in
extending him best wishes in having reached this venerable age in
life.

Mrs. Casper Moeller Summoned by Death Monday

News that came as somewhat of a surprise to most Hooper people and
friends of the Casper Moeller family was the announcement Monday
afternoon that Mrs. Moeller had passed away at the home in this
city shortly after the noon hour that day.  Death followed an
illness of a week's duration and was due to ailments incident to
old age, she having attained the venerable age of 82 years, 7
months and 29 days. As Johanna Langemeier, she was born at
Westfalia, Germany, on July 10, 1842. There she grew to womanhood
and in 1867 became the bride of Casper Moeller, and thus fifty-
eight years of happy companionship is broken by her death.  In 1869
she and Mr. Moeller came to America and settled on the farm three
miles north of Hooper that is now occupied by the son, John H. C.
For forty years this farm remained her home, enduring during that
time all of the vicissitudes accompanying pioneer days and then the
comforts that came with the years of toil and perseverance of the
early day settlers.  1909 found her and Mr. Moeller retiring from
the farm and moving to town to enjoy the sunset of life in the ease
and comfort they so richly deserved.  Since then our little city
had continuou sly been her home.  But the joy of the new home was
somewhat saddened for her through blindness that came upon her
about nine years ago, the duties of the home being looked after by
her daughter, Mrs. E. G. Niebuhr. But in spite of her great
affliction she was ever patient and became resigned to her fate of
darkness.

Of kindly disposition, gracious and friendly, she constantly added
to her golden-chain of friendships and there were many who
recognized her sterling worth.  Always patient, loving and kind,
more concerned about others than herself, a loving devoted wife and
mother, a gentle Christian friend, she leaves a vacant place that
cannot be filled. She was the mother of eight children, a daughter,
Anna, and two sons, William and August, preceding her in death.
The surviving children are C. Henry, John H. C., Mrs. E. J. Rink
and Mrs. E. G. Niebuhr, all of this locality, and Mrs. J. H.
Hartenberger of Red Bud, Ill. These and the aged husband have the
deep sympathy of the community in their hour of bereavement.  She
is also survived by twenty-five grandchildren and eleven great-
grandchildren.

The funeral services for this estimable and beloved woman will be
held this Thursday afternoon, with services first at one o'clock at
the late home and at two o'clock at St. John's Lutheran church, 5
miles north of Hooper, of which she was a devout member.  The
pastor, Rev. Thoe. Norden, will conduct the services.

In respect to Mr. Moeller, who has long been a director and for
some years its president, the Dodge County Bank will close its
doors during the hours of the funeral.

C. Henry Moeller Called by Death

Sorrow entered a happy home Wednesday morning, November 11, at 9
o'clock when the final call came to C. Henry Moeller to depart from
this earth and to be withdrawn from his dear ones, never to return
again. Although it was known that he was seriously ill, his death,
nevertheless, came as a great sorrow to his relatives and friends. 
Mr. Moeller, whose death was caused by cancer of the liver, had
attained the age of 63 years, 8 months and 9 days.

C. Henry Moeller was born March 2, 1868, in Westphalia, Germany. At
the age of one year he came to this country with his parents who
made Hooper and vicinity their residence.  In the schools of this
region he also received his education, and in 1882 he pledged
allegiance to his Maker and Redeemer in his confirmation.  On March
15, 1887, he was united in matrimony with Miss Johanna Busch and
made a farm home located six miles northwest of Hooper his domicile
the remainder of his life.  Seven children were born to this union,
two of whom entering their heavenly home at an early age.  His wife

Life Time Resident is Called by Death Sunday

The last sad rites for a life time resident of this community, Mrs.
C. Henry Moeller, was held Monday afternoon, March 25. Short
services were held first at the family home northwest of Hooper,
and were attended by many friends and neighbors.  Afterwards the
funeral proper was held at the St.  John's Lutheran church,
northwest of Hooper, and in spite of the cold weather of the day
was very largely attended.  The pastor, Rev. Theo. Norden conducted
the services, preaching in both the English and German languages.

After the church services, the body was tenderly borne to the
church

cemetery and there consigned to its last resting place.

Mrs. Moeller's death occurred at 1:30 last Friday afternoon, March
23, 1928, and was attributed to pneumonia and complications. She
had been in failing health practically all winter but it was not
until about two weeks before death that her condition became
serious, and from then on she rapidly declined until the end. At
the time of her death she had attained the age of 64 years, 5
months and 24 days.

Her maiden name was Johanna Busch, a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Fred
Busch, deceased, and pioneer settlers of the Fontanelle locality
where she was born on September 29, 1863.  She was baptized by Rev.
E. Frese, sr., and received her Christian training and was
confirmed by him in the St. John Church when it was located on the
Busch farm north of Hooper. On March 15, 1889, she was united in
marriage to C. Henry Moeller.  To this union seven children were
born, two sons passing away in infancy. The surviving children are
Alfred, Emil, George, Henry and Mrs. Oscar Siebrass, all of this
locality and who with the father, have the sincere sympathy of
friends in the loss of their beloved mother and wife.
A brother, Henry Busch, also survives her.

Mrs. Moeller was a quiet, unassuming woman,  much loved by those
who knew her best.  Her home and her family were her greatest
interests in life.  She always had a kind word for every one and
she was glad to be of service to anyone, and her death was a cause
of much regret among her many friends.

Emil Moeller Home Cast into Darkness by Death

The farm home of Emil Moeller, 7 miles northwest of Hooper, was
cast into deep gloom early Tuesday morning, July 2, 1929, when the
angel of death entered therein and took there from the wife and
mother, Kathryn Amelia Moeller, at the age of 30 years and 10
months.  Death was due to complications arising following the birth
of a baby daughter the day before.  Her death came as a great shock
to the family and relatives as well as to the family's many
friends.  In their hour of darkness the family has the deepest
sympathy of the community.

Kathryn Amelia Dorfmeyer, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Dorfmeyer
of our city, was a life long resident of the community in which she
died, having been born on the Dorfmeyer farm, northwest of Hooper,
on September 2, 1898.  There she grew to womanhood and on December
14th, 1916, was united in marriage to Emil Moeller. This union was
blessed with five children, Helen, Laverne, Eunice, Merlin, and the
little daughter for whom she gave up her life, all of whom now will
greatly miss the fond care of a devoted mother's administrations.
In her life time Mrs. Moeller was a dutiful daughter, a loving and
devoted wife and mother, and an esteemed friend, she holding her
friendship by the gentleness of her character.

Besides her immediate family she is survived by her parents, two
sisters, Mrs. Anna Cutman of Scribner and Mrs.  Meta Lucas of
Omaha, and five brothers, Herman, Henry, John, Fred and Merlin of
this community.

Funeral services will be held this Thursday afternoon at 2 o'clock
from the home and at 2:30 from St. Johns Lutheran church, these
being conducted by Rev. J. H. Gerdes of Winslow in the absence of
her regular pastor, Rev. Theo. Norden.  Interment will be in the

John H. C. Moeller. An active, enterprising and practical farmer,
John H. C. Moeller of Cuming Township, is an able assistant in
maintaining the reputation of Dodge County as a  superior
agricultural and stock-raising region, his success as a husbandman
being unquestioned.  A son of Casper Moeller, he was born, September
22, 1885, in Dodge County, where he has always resided.

Born, bred and educated in Germany, Casper Moeller left his native
land in 1859, crossing the ocean in a slow-sailing vessel, and came
directly to Dodge County, Nebraska, in search of a favorable
location.  Homesteading a tract of land, he improved a fine farm,
and was not only very successful as a farmer and stock-raiser, but
attained a place of prominence and influence in the community where
he lived, having served at one time as president of the Dodge County
Bank, and having, also been president of the Farmer s Mutual
Insurance Company.  Giving up active pursuits in 1908, he has since
lived retired at his pleasant home in Hooper.  He married Joanna
Langermeyer, a native of Germany, and of their union five children
were born, as follows; Henry, engaged in farming in Dodge County;
Louise, wife of Rev. J. H. Hargtenberger of Red Bud, Illinois;
Caroline, wife of Amiel Neiborn, a farmer; Fredericka, wife of Emil
Rink, a Dodge County farmer; and John H. C. of whom we write.  The
father is an independent voter, and both he and his wife belong to
St. Johnís Lutheran Church.

Completing the course of study in the common schools of Dodge
County, John H. C. Moeller attended the Fremont Normal School, thus
materially advancing his education.  Working with his father, he
early acquired a thorough knowledge of the modern methods of
farming, and in 1908 embarked in agricultural pursuits on his own
account.  He has since carried on general farming extensively and
prosperously, as a stock raiser, making a specialty of Poland China
hogs, in the raising of which he has been very fortunate.  He is
also interested to some extent in other affairs, being one of the
stockholders of the Hooper mill.

Mr. Moeller married February 24,1908, Frieda Rink, who was born in
Dodge County, where her father, Jacob Rink was a pioneer settler.
Five children have been born of the marriage of Mr. and Mrs.
Moeller, namely Lois, Agnes, Eugene, Elhardt and Etta May.
Independent in his political affiliations, Mr. Moeller votes
according to the dictates of his conscience.  Religiously he and his
wife are members of St. Johnís Lutheran Church.

John Moseman

John Moseman, a prominent farmer and stockman living five miles
north of Hooper, passed away March 7, 1919, at 11:30 a.m., cause of
death being kidney trouble and cancer of the backbone, from which
he had been a sufferer since last September.  On January 13 he was
taken to Mayo Bros. hospital at Rochester, Minn,, where he remained
until March 3, when physicians declared his case hopeless and he
returned to the home where his death occurred.

Mr. Moseman was born in Oldenburg, Germany, May 18, 1865, being 53
years, 9 months and 19 days old at the time of his death. He came
to this country alone at the age of fifteen years, coming to
Nebraska from New York about six months after his arrival. He
rented a farm near West Point, remaining there until 1900 when he
moved to the Gerhard Monnich farm where his last days were spent.

On March 15, 1892 he was united in marriage to Miss Anna Rudebusch
at Hooper, his wife preceding him in death about eight years ago.
They were the parents of nine children, eight of whom survive to
mourn the death of a beloved father.  They are Mrs. George Nieman,
Mrs. Henry Eisen and John Moseman, jr., of Sidney,, and Emma,
Regina, Herman, Willie and Adolph at home.  All were present at the
burial of their father, as was also his brother, Henry, of S. Dak. 
Two sisters and one brother remain in Germany.

Funeral services were held at one o'clock Monday afternoon, Rev. H.
C. Jul Frese of St. John's Lutheran church being in charge.
Interment was made in the church cemetery.

The many sincere friends and neighbors of the deceased man will
mourn with the bereaved family in their great and irreparable loss.

The First Settlers A Little Biography and History of Some of the
Early Pioneers.

(Paper No. 2) The experience of Mr. Munderloh and family were very
similar to that of the Monnich's.  Mr. Munderloh's family at this
time consisted of a wife who was a sister of Mr. Monnich, and two
daughters, now Mesdames Herman Bohling and Wm. Hilgencamp. They
settled near Monnich's on what the government survey afterwards
called the S. E. 1/4, section 12, township 1, range 19.  In 1858
Mrs. Munderloh died and in 1860 Mr. Munderloh married Mary Stork.
George, Henry, Louisa, Lena and Amelia all now living were the
children left when she died in 1880. Mr. Munderloh died in 1869. Of
this family George now lives near Beemer, Henry and Louisa, now
Mrs. C. H. Milverstedt, are residents of Hooper, Lena married Henry
Klempke, and lives in Scribner and Amelia resides in Fremont, the
wife of Mr. Kasebaum.

Mr. Munderloh was born in Germany in 1820 and with his family came
to the United States in 1854.  He always believed this was destined
to be a great country, but his death, eleven years after coming
here gave him but little opportunity to see the fulfillment of his
predictions. After his death the widow assisted by the family
carried on farming operations with the same success as did her
husband.  Of course they in common with others saw hard times, but
by the exercise of economy and much work they weathered the floods
and blizzards, drouths, hot winds and grasshoppers firmly believing
that deliverance would come sooner or later, and who can deny that
their faith has not been rewarded while the transformation of the
country has been great indeed.

Old Time Settler Called By Death

William Nieman, an old time settler in the community in Cuming
county, 14ę miles northwest of Hooper, passed away Sunday morning,
April 2, at his farm home at the age of 77 years and 27 days. In
1926 Mr. Nieman suffered a stroke of paralysis, the effects of
which resulted in his death.

Mr. Nieman was born March 6, 1857 at Venne, Hanover, Germany, where
he grew to boyhood and was baptized and confirmed in the Lutheran
faith. He lost his father by death in early youth, and at the age
of 14 years he came with his mother to America and took up his
residence at Brownstown, Indiana.  Later he and his brother,
George, came to Hooper. He bought a farm in Cuming county which had
since been his home.

On October 19, 1883, he was married to Miss Elise Becker, and last
October these two were privileged to celebrate their golden wedding
anniversary.  To this union eight children were born, five of whom
survive and with the mother now mourn the loss of a devoted father
and husband.  They are George and Mrs. Sophie Engelland of Sidney,
Henry and Miss Louise at home and Mrs. Martha Schroeder of Hooper. 
Surviving him are also one sister, Mrs. Herman Eggerman, of
Seymour, Indiana, nine grandchildren, one great-grandchild and
other relatives.

His funeral, in charge of the Wollmer and Warne mortuary service,
was held yesterday afternoon with services at the late home at one
o'clock and at 1:30 from the St. John Lutheran church north of
Hooper, of which the deceased had been a faithful member for many
years.  The religious service was conducted by the pastor, Rev.
Theo. Norden, and interment was made in the church cemetery.

Germany and came to this country in 1881, making her home with a
sister in this county until her marriage to Wm. Nieman October 19,

mother of eight children, five of whom survive to mourn her loss.
They are George and Mrs. Sophie Engleland, Sidney; Mrs. Martin
Schroeder, Hooper; Henry and Louise; at home.

formerly Ella Mae Wike and she was born June 17, 1892, in North
Carolina. She came to Fremont in 1911 and in 1913 was married to

northeast of Hooper now occupied by B. H. Monnich. As a pioneer
settler Mr. Raasch saw and went through all the struggles and
hardships of those early days, but with a tenaciousness of purpose
stuck thru it all and had seen this community grow into the garden
spot of the country.  His life was an open book and held the
highest respect and confidence of all the people of this community.
In 1904 he and Mrs. Raasch moved to town to spend their declining
years in the quiet and comfort they so deservedly earned.
Celebrating their golden wedding anniversary in the year 1907.

He was the father of eleven children, six of whom, with the widow,
survive. The children are Casper, of Inman; Henry, Ashland;
Gottlieb, Denver, Colo.; Emil, Omaha; Mrs. Henry Paulsen, Bancroft,
and Mrs. Wm. Hoefner, West Point.  With the exception of Gottlieb,
all of the children were here when the end came.  He is also
survived by forty-nine grandchildren and forty-three great-
grandchildren.

Short funeral services were held at the home at 1:30 Sunday
afternoon and at two o'clock at the Methodist church, Rev. H. C.
Julius Frese, pastor of the St. John's Evangelical Lutheran church,
northwest of town, and of which Mr. Raasch was one of the founders,
preaching the sermon. Interment was made in the St. John church
cemetery.  The pall bearers were six grandsons of the deceased. The
funeral was largely attended by relatives and friends, those from a
distance being; Mr. and Mrs. Harry Hartung, Omaha; Mr. and Mrs. A.
E. Hartung and Albert Hoefner, Wisner; Emil Hoefner, Pierce, Martin
Hoefner, West Point; Mrs. John Raasch and two daughters, Mr. and

Pay Final Tributes To Former Resident Here

Following a brief illness from ailments incidental to old age, Mrs.
John Raasch, one of the pioneer residents of this place, departed
this life Tuesday evening, March 6, 1923, at the home of her
daughter, Mrs. H. G. Paulsen, of near Bancroft, at the age of 83
years, 11 months and 23 days.  The remains were brought overland
Friday afternoon to the St. John's Evangelical Lutheran Church,
northwest of Hooper, where at two o'clock funeral services were
held, with the pastor, Rev. H. C. Jul. Frese, having them in
charge. They were largely attended and many followed the remains to
their last resting place in the church's cemetery.

As Barbara Uehling, deceased was born in Saxony, Germany, March 13,
1839. When still a young girl, she came to America with her
parents, locating at Watertown, Wis., which was the first home of
many of the first settlers of this community. There in 1857 she was
united in marriage to John Raasch, who preceded her in death two
years ago, and there she made her home until 1865, when the
westward trip to the new home in Nebraska was made. The family took
up a homestead north of our present city. This place, which is now
farmed by B. H. Monnich, remained her home until 1902, when she and
her husband removed to Hooper to occupy the home they had erected
in the southeast part of town and spend the sunset days of their
life in retirement and ease. A year ago last January she went up to
Bancroft to make her home with her daughter.

The passing of this beloved woman is once more a reminder that the
sturdy pioneers who helped to make this land one of plenty are fast
answering the final summons and passing to the Great Beyond. She
was a woman who through the trials of pioneering bore her lot with
much fortitude and her ever-ready willingness to lend a helping
hand in those days to neighbors in need caused her to become well
beloved by all; and so her demise is mourned by many. She was a
Christian woman, a woman dutiful to her home ties and devoted to
relatives, friends and neighbors.

She was the mother of four daughters and seven sons, two of the
former and four of the latter surviving. They are Mrs. H. G.
Paulsen of Bancroft, Mrs. Wm. Hoefner of West Point, Casper of
Prairie Home, Gottlieb of Denver, Emil of Omaha, and Henry of
Ashland.  She is also survived by two sister, Mrs. August Wagner
and Mrs. John F. Meyer of Hooper, as well as over forty
grandchildren and over forty great-grandchildren.

The out-of-town relatives who came for the funeral were Mr.  and
Mrs. H. G. Paulsen and son, Harry, of Bancroft; Mrs. Wm. Hoefner
and Martin Hoefner of West Point, Casper Raasch of Prairie Home,
Mrs.  John Raasch, Jr., Mrs. Chas. Toelle and Mrs.  Harry Nellor of
Beemer, A. E. Hartung of Wisner, and Harry Hartung and Arthur
Hoefner of Omaha. Owing to illness, her sons Gottlieb, Emil and
Henry, could not come for the funeral.

Obituary

The Hooper Sentinel 
January 22, 1903

John Jacob Ludwig Rink was born July 4, 1842, in the village of
Spierbach, Wiesbaden, Germany, and died at his home near Hooper,
Nebraska, January 19th, 1903, of pneumonia.

His boyhood and youth were spent in his native village. In 1866 he
came to the United States, locating first in Indiana. In 1869 he
came to Dodge county, Nebraska, and shortly afterward engaged in
the hardware business in Hooper which he continued until 1879 when
he moved onto his farm, 4 miles northwest of Hooper and where he
made his home ever since.

In 1877 he was married to Miss Bertha Pagenkopf, of Scribner, and
who died December 23, 1899.

A family of ten children are thus left orphaned, six of them being
minors, the youngest being 4 years old.

Deceased was a gentleman in every respect, whose aim in life was to
do right and treat his fellow men with kindness and honesty. This
won for him the highest regard and esteem of everyone. To his
family he was always a kind and devoted husband and father. In his
death the community has lost one of its best citizens and will feel
deeply his loss, and his orphaned children will have the sympathy
of everyone.

Mr. Rink was a faithful member of St. John's German Lutheran church
and lived and died a Christian.

Funeral services were held at the house and church yesterday at 12
o'clock, his pastor Rev. A. Bergt, officiating.

Chris Sass Succumbs to Lingering Illness

Following a several months lingering illness from Bright's disease
and complications, Chris Sass passed away at 9 o'clock Monday
evening, June 14, 1926, at the farm home six miles northwest of
Hooper, aged 58 years, 2 months and 15 days.  The last illness came
upon Mr. Sass last February and since that time he had received the
best care that the medical profession and loving hands could give
him.  But it was of no avail and on Monday evening he sank into
that sleep from which there is no awakening.  His demise is deeply
regretted by a very large circle of friends in this locality.

Mr. Sass was born on March 29th, 1868, on the farm northwest of
town where death came to him, and thus he can be classed as one of
the truly native pioneer sons of this community.  During his 58
years of life here Mr. Sass had become very widely known and had a
very extensive acquaintanceship among our people.  He was always a
rad worker, a devoted husband and father, a worthy friend and
always held the highest respect and esteem of his fellowmen.

He was united in marriage on the 30th of June, 1891, to Miss Anna
Meyer, and to this union eight children were born, all living to
share with their mother the heartfelt condolences of friends The
children are Mrs. Herman Horst, Alma, John, Norman, Werner, Chris
and Roland of this vicinity and Harold of Grand Island. He is also
survived by two sisters living at Beemer, a brother at Denver,
Colo., and five grandchildren and other relatives.

The funeral will be held this Thursday afternoon with services at
the late home at 1:30 and at two o'clock at the St. Johns Lutheran
church 5 miles northwest of Hooper the pastor, Rev. Theo. Norden,
conducting them.  Interment will be made in the church cemetery.

worked such sad havoc with the growing crops, and also the years of
1882-83, when the chinch-bugs ruined the wheat crop.

Chris Sass Fatally hurt in Auto Accident Sunday

This community and especially the one northwest of Hooper, was
greatly shocked Sunday evening when word was heard of the death of
Chris Sass, 16-year old son of Mrs. Anna Sass of about seven miles
northwest of town, as the result of injuries received in an auto
accident near West Point in the morning.

The accident happened three miles west of West Point and occurred
as young Sass and Walter Langemeier, a neighbor boy, were returning
from a visit over Saturday at Beemer.  On reaching this spot in the
road, the Ford Touring car, with Langemeier driving, struck some
loose gravel which caused the car to skid and to overturn, the two
boys being pinned underneath the wreckage. Langemeier was able to
extricate himself and then put forth his efforts to getting out
young Sass in which he was assisted by passing motorists.  Sass was
taken immediately to a West Point hospital where it was found he
had suffered a broken leg and serious internal injuries.  He
lingered until evening when death came to him with members of the
family at his bedside.  Young Langemier escaped with a bruised leg
and a few other contusions about the body, and is now about
recovered from his experience. The car was completely wrecked.

The Bucholz Bros. ambulance was summoned and driven to West Point
the same evening to bring the body back to Hooper for preparal for
the funeral.  This was held Tuesday afternoon, with short services
first at the Sass farm home and then at the St. Johns Lutheran
church, the pastor, Rev. Theo. Norden conducting them, and who took
his German text from Isaiah 45:15 and the English text from Luke
7:11-17.  A very large number of people attended the services and
followed the remains to the final resting place in the church
cemetery.  Pall bearers were Avillus Kroeger, Henry Lueking, Howard
Uehling, Arnold Langemeier, Roland Rink and Leonard Schulenberg.

Chris Sass was born on the home place northwest of Hooper on
September 13, 1911, and had thus but attained the age of 16 years,
10 months and 29 days.  He was a bright and industrious lad, one
who was very well liked by all and always took an active part in
the affairs of the young people of his community and was a faithful
member of the Young Peoples Society of St. Johns church.  He had
spent all his life on the farm and in recent years had been a big
help to his mother in the conduct of the farm.  That he should be
called at this time in life is indeed sad, and the members of the
stricken family have the sincerest sympathy of the entire
community.  His tragic death is mourned by his mother, one sister,
Anna and four brothers, Harold, Norman, Werner and Roland.

Mini Biography

Ernst August Schurmann, 64, was born on November 13, 1818. He died
on December 25, 1882 and is buried at St. John's cemetery, Hooper,
Nebraska. According to the History of St. John's Evangelical
Lutheran Church, in 1878 Rev. E. A. Schuermann, of Homestead, Iowa,
donated a tract of land to be used for the church building.  This
land was 4 miles northwest of the then present church, which was 
1 1/2 miles north and 1 mile east of Hooper.

The following paragraph is from an item written by Henry Mass.
http://www.rootsweb.com/~iaiowa/maas2.html
 
Revered Schuermann was of the 'Missouri Synod' and began to
introduce its customs and principles. 'This lead to dissensions.' As
time went on, it became more aggravated and caused a division.
Reverend Schuermann, weary of the same, resigned in 1881 and went to
Dodge County, Nebraska, to his children.

Franco-Purssian war and father of Mrs. J. D. Frese.

Funeral rites were conducted from the home of J. D. Frese and in

Hooper.

Heinrich Taeger was born August 1, 1848 in Gross Schwaszlosen,
Germany. During his early youth the war of 1870-71 between Germany
and France claimed his service.  While engaged in active combat he
received various citations, medals and official decorations of the

of hostilities he received his honorable discharge.

In the year 1877 the departed was united in marriage to Ida Eckel.

to make his home with his only living daughter, Mrs. J. D. Frese.


The departed enjoyed excellent health for the greater part of his
long life.  It was only in the last few years that he began to show
his age, but at all time he was able to be about.  Shortly before
his death he suffered a stroke which paralyzed his entire left
side.  Very peacefully he closed his eyes in death on the evening
of February 23, 1934, having reached the age of 85 years, 6 months
and 22 days.  He leaves to mourn him his daughter, Mrs. J. D.
Frese; five grandchildren, Mrs. John Wacker, Mrs. George J. Tonjes,

History of the Elkhorn Valley 
Page 643

John G. H. Teebken, of Section 34, Bismark township, Cuming County,
was born near the City of Oldenburg, Germany, March 24, 1852.  He
is the son of John C. and Anna (Oltmans) Teebken. The former died
in 1882 and the latter in 1889.  They were the parents of ten
children - two sons and eight daughters - our subject being the
only one in America.  The first fourteen years of our subject's
life did not vary much from other German youths.  He attended
school and worked with his father at blacksmithing at intervals,
and then left home and  began life as a body servant to the chief
secretary of the Grand Duke, or ruler of Oldenburg, (Graf von
Monnig).  Later he worked in a brewery, but in 1869 he came to
Marengo, Iowa, where he worked at farm labor.  In 1881 he came to
Scribner, Nebraska, near which place he rented land one season, and
then bought wild land which forms a part of his present farm, which
now contains five hundred and sixty acres.  His residence is one of
the best farm houses in the Elkhorn Valley.  He is extensively
engaged in stock raising and feeding; he usually keeps over one
hundred head of cattle. He is a stockholder in the State Bank at
Wisner.

Politically he is a Democrat, always taking a great interest in
public affairs.  For two years he represented the township on the
board of supervisors.  He was also justice of the peace for several
years and is now town treasurer.  In educational matters he is
quite active, and is giving his children a good educational
opportunity.  He belongs to the German Lutheran Church, and was a
liberal contributor towards the church building erected in hs
township.

He was united in marriage December 3, 1871, to Gesine Luschen, a
native of Oldenburg.  Our subject and his wife have three living
children and three deceased; Fritz accidentally drowned; Johanna,
Anna, Emma, died of diphtheria; John died of scarlet fever, and
Mary.  The older children are being educated in German as well as
English.  Since Mr. Teebken first located farm land in his
neighborhood has increased from four to five hundred per cent. When
he arrived in Marengo, Iowa, he had seventy-five cents in money
left, and owed thirty-five dollars of his passage money, which he
afterwards sent back to the old country.  But he has come to be one
of the most prosperous and progressive farmers of Cuming County,
Nebraska.  To one who comes from the Old World without means and
builds for himself a home in a new prairie county, and finally
becomes wealthy, there must be attached no little credit. And be it
said of the German people that they furnish a large per cent of the
successful farmers and business men of this country today.

Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Uehling

Elmer Uehling now farms the land in Section 2, Township 19, Range 7.
He is the grandson of John Uehling.

John Uehling and his wife, Ottilie Trautvetter, purchased 160 acres
of land from John Seeley in 1864.  He also purchased an additional
six acres of hay meadow and woodland.  On the six acres, a log
school house was built; and on April 26, 1868, church services were
started in this log school house.  The minister was Rev. Frese from
Rock Creek south of Beemer.

The people from that community brought grain to the mill near Hooper
to have flour made, and in this way people found out about a
minister being in that community.  Three men went to see Rev. Frese,
and he began services in the log schoolhouse on April 26, 1868. A
year later St. John's build their first church.

Mr. and Mrs. John Uehling had six children; Mrs. Henry (Rosena)
Marquardt, Oswald, Mrs. Ed. (Molly) Realph, August, Mrs. August
(Francisca) Keller, Mrs. Phillip ( Amelia) Bergquist.

John Uehling farmed until his son, Oswald, who was working at the
mill, was married.  Oswald was born August 30, 1870 and was married
Feb. 11, 1903 to Margaret Schellenberg.  She was born April 20, 1883
and was the daughter of Henry Schellenberg and nee Katherine Erb.
They had five children: Alvin, Mrs. Werner (Roma) Sass, both
deceased; Elmer, a daughter who died in infancy, and Howard who
lives in Omaha.

The Oswald Uehlings farmed until Elmer took over the farming. Elmer
has spent his entire life on this farm, never having lived
elsewhere.  He married Mildred Meyer on Nov. 24, 1934. Elmer and
Mildred have one son, Jerry, who is married to Virginia Applel, and
lives in Fremont.  They have one grandson, Timothy Shawn Uehling.

Both Mildred and Elmer are lifetime members of St. John's Lutheran
Church which is now located in Hooper.
