Washinton County History

James Andersen

James, son of Andrew and Mary (Hansen) Petersen, was born in
Venslov, Soro County, Slagelse, Sjaelland, Denmark, on September 13,
1848.  He and all but two of his thirteen brothers and sisters,
their spouses, and families - along with the parents - came to
America in the 1870's or thereabouts, and settled in Burt and
Washington Counties.  However, for a time James was engaged in
railroading in Wyoming.

Maren Sofie Andersen was born in Flemtoft, Denmark, on September 14,
1859, to James and Anna Andersen.  She came to America with her
parents in 1868, settling near Admah, Washington County, where she
lived until her marriage.

Rev. A. M. Andersen united James and Mary in marriage on December
29, 1878, at Clark Creek in Burt County with Christian and Karen
Andersen, his siser, as witnesses.

James started farming in Burt County about 1889, and this is where
they made their home.  Grandsons LeRoy and Alvin Olsen still farm
there.  The first homestead house is still there, although the
larger home was moved in.  Andrew Petersens had many children
farming in Burt and Washington counties, but James was the last and
only one to stay on a homestead site.  All of the others eventually
moved to Blair, Ruskin, Racine, Colorado, North Dakota, or Canada.

There were five children born to this unuon: Albert George, who died
at age five, Mrs. James (Ella) Olsen; Albert James; Julius; and Mrs.
Alfred (Marie) Andersen.  There are two grandsons.

A stroke of paralysis, suffered on January 17, brought on the direct
cause of Mary's death four days later on Januray 21, 1918, at only
age 58.  James died on April 21, 1929, following a lengthy illness
from ailments incident to old age, but not until after he had
attained an age somewhat over eighty.  Both funeral services were
held at the West Admah Church, and they are both buried in that
cemetery near other loved ones.  Submitted my Mrs. Joan Allgor.

Swaburg Pioneer Called by Death

Peter Jacob Andersen, pioneer resident of Uehling, passed away at
his home there on Wednesday evening of last week.  Mr. Andersen
suffered a stroke several years ago which left him a semi-invalid
and since last fall had been confined to his bed most of the time.
He also suffered from dropsy.

The deceased was born in Denmark on November 17, 1855, and
emigrated to the United States in 1878, coming first to Fremont.
For a few years he worked as a farm hand in the Argo vicinity.
Following his marriage to Miss Karen Hansen at Admah on Mar. 2,
1883, they established a home in that vicinity.  Mr. and Mrs.
Andersen observed their golden wedding anniversary last year.  Nine
years ago they retired from the farm and have since resided in
Uehling.

Mr. Andersen was a gentleman of the finest character.  He was a
devout Christian and active in the work of his church. With the
disbanding of the Danish Lutheran congregation at Admah, he and his
family united with the Elim Congregation at Swaburg, where he was a
faithful and regular attendant until his health failed.

Besides the wife, one son and four daughters remain to mourn the
passing of a devoted father.  The children are Mrs. Louis Petersen
(Marie) of near Herman, Mrs. Dena McBroom of Swaburg, Alfred and
Mrs. Arthur Lueninghoener (Emma) of Admah and Mrs. Herman Jacobsen
(Anna) of Argo.  Fourteen grandchildren and four great-
grandchildren, three brothers, and one sister also survive.  One
child died in infancy(1) and one son, Walter (see below), passed 
away in 1921, following an illness contracted when serving in 
the World War.

The funeral was solemnized Saturday afternoon, with a prayer
service at the late home and the formal service at the Elim
Lutheran church, his pastor, Rev. Arnold Thoren, officiating.  Miss
Helen Monson presided at the organ and was accompanist for the male
quartet in several song numbers.  The beautiful floral tribute and
the large attendance bespoke the love and esteem in which the
departed venerable pioneer was held.  Burial was made in the family
lot in the Danish cemetery at Admah.  Relatives of the deceased
acted as pall bearers.

(1) This child is Hans Theodore Andersen, born on Oct. 22, 1883
and died in 1884. He is buried at St. Johannes Argo Cemetery in 
Burt County, NE.

March 24, 1921

A World War Veteran Amswers Taps

Death at 4 o'clock a.m., Sunday, March 20, 1921, took from this life
Walter H. Anderson, aged 27 years 10 months and 4 days, son of Mr.
and Mrs. P. J. Anderson of the Admah neighborhood, ten and a half
miles northeast of Hooper.  Death occurred at the Wise Memorial
hospital, Omaha, where Mr. Anderson had been for the past two months
receiving treatment for nephritis under government care, he having
served in the army during the recent World war.

Mr. Anderson was born at Admah on May 16, 1893, and that
neighborhood has always been his home and among whose people he has
been known as a young man of sterling worth and character.  He was
known and highly esteemed by all, and his death brings a sorrow to
the friends and neighbors as well at to the immediate family.  In
the late war he was called to the colors September 23, 1917, leaving
Tekamah for Camp Funston, Kans. for training as private in Co. K.
355th infantry.  He was later transferred to Co. C. 137th infantry,
35th division, serving with this company throughout its twelve
months' stay in France.  He went through the Argonne battle and
other conflicts.  He was gassed during an engagement, and his demise
is an outcome of this injury.  He spent a month in a hospital in
France and two months in one after his return to his home country.
He received his discharge from service July 22, 1919, returning to
the farm home at Admah.  During all this time the gassing received
in service had been bothering him and about two months ago he was
taken to Omaha to secure relief.  The government all this time
looked after his care, and he also was receiving a disability
pension payment.

The remains were brought to Hooper Tuesday morning and taken out to
the Anderson home in Admah, where funeral services were held at one
o'clock that afternoon, and also at the Admah Danish Lutheran
church.  The services were conducted by Rev. Hald of Davey and Rev.
Petersen of Fremont.  Six members of Cornelius Tillman post, No. 18,
American Legion of Hooper, acted as pallbearers.  Interment was made
in the church cemetery.  The services were largely attended by those
who came to pay their last respects to one whom had grown up among
them as a man well thought of.

His death brings deep sorrow to the parents, one brother, Alfred,
and four sisters, Mrs. Louis Petersen, Mrs. McBroom and Misses Emma
and Anna.  Their bereavement is consoled if such can be, by the true
heartfelt sympathy of all in this community.

Swaburg Pioneer is Called by Death

Anders Christensen, one of the last of the old settlers of the
Swaburg community, passed away Sunday evening, July 21, at the
Lutheran Good Samaritan hospital in Fremont, at the age of 83
years, 11 months and 23 days.  His death followed a long siege of
illnes from ailments incidental to old age.

Mr. Christensen was born on July 27, 1851, at Kielby, Magle paa
Morn, Denmark, where he was baptized and confirmed in the Lutheran

lived.  He took up a homestead 2 1/2 miles northeast of the present
town of Uehling, but after a couple of years sold it and bought the
farm in the Swaburg vicinity that had ever since been his home, and
in which community he had become to be a highly respected resident.

He was united in marriage on May 16, 1886, to Nielsine Laurentse
Nielsen, and they took up their married life on the farm he owned.
Though no children were born to this union, they, however, took
into their home a nephew and a niece, Leslie W. and Martha
Lauersen, the later now Mrs. Henry Egbers, whom they gave the
tender care of devoted parents.

He is survived by his wife, and beside the above named nephew and
niece, the following nephews and nieces as the close surviving

funeral to be held Friday afternoon with services at 1:30 at the
home and at 2 o'clock from the Admah Danish Lutheran church, with

The Washington County History

Hans Christiansen

Hans Christiansen, a harness maker by trade, was born in Sjaelland,
(Zealand) Denmark, September 13, 1825.  His wife, Christine, was
born in Copenhagen, Denmark, November 19, 1833.  Their only child,
our father James Robert, was also born in Copenhagen, September 3,
1859.  After service in the Danish-German War our grandfather
decided to migrate to America to seek a better life for his family. 
They arrived in Omaha in 1863 and moved on to Utah by ox-train,
reaching Salt Lake City before winter.  Christine walked the 1,100
miles, sometimes carrying their son.

Disapponted and disillusioned by Utah, Hans worked in mines up in
the mountains until he had enough money for a team of oxen, a wagon
and provsions to take Christine and James Robert back to Omaha.
They left Utah in the spring of 1865 and arrived in the fall.  It
was a long and dangerous journey for the little family through
hostile Indian territory.

Back in Omaha, Grandfather worked in the railroad yards and
Grandmother fed borders until they accumulated enough money to begin
farming.  In 1869 they filed a claim on eight acres.  This became
the Homestead.  Later, nintey acres were purchased from the railroad
and were always called 'the railroad land.'

Our maternal grandmother, Valtabor Larson, was born in Norway,
December 2, 1824, and died July 2, 1916.  As a young widow with two
small daughters, Sarah and Elizabeth, our mother, she accompanied
her brothers and sisters and their families to the United States.
They settled near Huxley, Iowa.  Later, she and her daughters moved
to Burt County, just north of Washington County.

During the early years on the Homestead the nearest store and post
office was Fontanelle, eight miles away.  Each week Christine walked
across the meadows, lacking roads, to get the mail and a few
groceries.  The long walk to Utah had trained her for this 'short
walk.'  Later, the Admah store and a blacksmith shop were built
close-by.  When she died September 27, 1876, there was no cemetery
near so she was buried on the Homestead but was moved to the West
Admah Cemetery when it was established.

When Grandpa Christiansen remarried, Father went to work for the
railroad and helped lay the first rails from Fremont to the Wyoming
border.  After he returned home his father and stepmother purchased
a farm near Oakland, Nebraska, on which they built and operated a
store until Grandpa's death, March 25, 1901.  Meanwhile, our
parents, James Robert Christiansen and Elizabeth Larson, had met and
were married September 12, 1885.  They lived on the Homestead until
Father died July 24, 1922.  The Homestead is now owned by his son,
E. R. Christiansen.

As a boy our father attended Hewett School District 17 which, in
turn, all of his children attended.  For may years he served as
Director of this said school.  He was also Justice of Peace and was
township assessor until his death.

Grandpa and Grandma Christiansen found the better life they were
seeking right here in Nebraska.

Obituary

The Hooper Sentinel 
August 3, 1922

James Robert Christiansen was born in Saland, Denmark, September 3,
1859, and died at his home near Admah, July 24, 1922, from over
four months' illness.

He came to the United States in March, 1863, reaching Salt Lake
City that fall.  Early in the spring of 1865 he left Utah with ox-
team for Omaha, Nebr., arriving there late in the fall of the same
year.  He lived in Omaha until the spring of 1869, when he moved
with his parents to a homestead in Sheridan and took a prominent
part in the upbuilding of the county, and in his active days was a
leader in the prohibition movement.  He was a man of high ideals, a
thoroughly Chris- precinct, Washington county where he has since
made his home.

In 1886 he was married to Elizabeth Larson and to this union ten
children were born, two of whom died in infancy.

Besides many friends who esteemed him as a man of honest, upright
character, he leaves to mourn the loss of a kind, affectionate
husband and father, his wife, five daughters - Mrs. N. A.
Greenwood, Craig; Mrs. Carl Hanson, Lyons; Mrs. T. W. Petersen,
Herman; Ella and Lillie at home - and three sons, E. R., living
near, and Calvin and William at home, and two granddaughters.

The funeral was held at the home at 2 o'clock last Wednesday, the
services being conducted by Rev. James Petersen, pastor of the
Admah Lutheran church.  An escort of Masonic brothers conducted the
body to the West Admah Lutheran cemetery, where the burial was in
charge of the Masonic order of Herman.

Obituary

The Hooper Sentinel 
July 8, 1915

Christian Clausen was born in Denmark on the 28th day of December,
1841 and passed to the Great Beyond, June 27, 1915, at his home one
mile north of Admah,  on his farm where he has resided for forty-
six years.  Mr. Clausen served as a soldier in the Denmark and
Prussian war of 1864, and was receiving a pension for his services
at the time of his death.  After the war he came to America.  After
being here several years he returned to his native country and was
married to Miss Maren Anderson the 22nd of March, 1869. They
emigrated from there to Nebraska and settled on the homestead in
Washington county the same year.  To this union eleven children
were born, seven boys and four girls, nine of whom are still living
to mourn the death of a father.  All were present at the funeral
except Mrs. Phillip Dern, of Salt Lake City, Utah.  His wife
preceded him the 4th of April, 1896.  By hard work and hardships in
the pioneer days of Nebraska he accumulated a fortune any man might
be proud of.  He was laid to rest by the side of his beloved wife
in the Danish cemetery, two miles west of Admah Wednesday
afternoon.  He was followed to the grave by a large concourse of
friends and neighbors.

Christian Clausen

Maren, the third child and third daughter of Andrew and Mary
(Hansen) Petersen, was born in the Venslov Parish, Soro County,
Slagslse, Sjaelland, Denmark, on October 28, 1842.

Christian Claus Clausen was born December 28, 1841, in a small
parish near Copenhagen, Denmark.

My grandparents were married at the Venslov parish in 1864.  Grandpa
came to America in 1866 and worked in the woods near Rice Lake,
Wisconsin.  Grandma came with her inlaws to Wisconsin in early 1867.

In April of 1869 my grandparents moved to Admah, Nebraska, where
they farmed.  They built a large home, and they later became the
parents of seven boys and four girls.  The eleven children born to
this union were; Alfred, born October 17, 1870, was killed in Salt
Lake City by a train on October 12, 1899.  He left one daughter
Elfreda Davidson and his wife Mary Passlam.  Viga married Phillip
Dern of Salt Lake City.  They had two sons, Ira and Floyd.  Walter
married Nora Christensen, and they resided at Hartington, Nebraska. 
They had five children.  Ludvig (Louie), who married Anna Clausen,
moved to Wisconsin.  They had two daughters.  Eva married James
Frank and lived at Ogden, Utah.  There were no children.  Edgar
married Irene Jacobsen.  Five children were born to this union.
Howard Clausen, the oldest son, is the only remaining grandchild
living in Washington County.  Ella married Peter B. Clausen of New
Lisbon, Wisconsin.  They had two sons.   Anna married Horatio Oberts
of Tekamah.  After his death, she married Raliegh Dunn of Siverton,
Oregon.  Henry married Mary Larsen, of Spiker, Nebraska.  They had
the largest family of eleven children -  four boys and seven girls. 
Herman married Clara Whitney Ladd.  They had three daughters, and
they resided in Fremont, Nebraska, since 1920.  Two of these
daughters still live there, and the third is deceased, as are all of
Maren and Christian's children.  Of the 31 grandchildren of
Christian and Maren, nineteeen are still living.  Six live in
Nebraska - Howard, Tekamah; Thelma Clausen and Betty Dunn, Fremont;
Everett, Peru; Edna Norby, Hartington; and Alfreda Davidson,
Stanton.

Eight of the grandchildren live in and near Breckenridge, Minnesota,
and five are living in Clafornia.

There are forty great-grandchildren, 66 great-great grandchildren,
and to date 37 great-great-great grandchildren.

Maren Clausen died at age 54 on April 4, 1896.  Christian died June
27, 1915.  Both are buried in the West Admah Cemetery by other

Mrs. Margret Clausen

Mrs. Clausen, wife of Christian Clausen, died at Omaha April 4.

She was born in Denmark in 1843, came to America in 1871, and
located with her husband near Admah, in Washington county, Neb.

Six sons and four daughters blessed her married life; only one of
which is married, Mrs. Philip Dern.

Three sisters, four brothers and her aged mother survive her.

Some time ago a blood vessel ruptured in her brain which gave her
much trouble.

She was advised to travel some for her health.  She accordingly
went to Omaha about two weeks ago.  While there she was stricken
with apoplexy.  She survived the attack only a few hours, and died
on Sunday, April 4.

The remains were taken to Admah and laid to rest in the Danish
Cemetery, on Monday.

Edwin Dam

Edwin W. Dam and Lucinda M. Busch were married September 26, 1937 at
Zion Lutheran Church in Hooper, Nebraska.  We live on the 80 acre
farm where Edwin was born in 1907, in the northwest part of
Washington County, Sheridan Township.  The farm was purchased in
early 1900, when buying land was a sacrifice.  There were few
buildings at that time, but it was home amidst a beautiful grove of
shade and fruit trees.

I was born only two miles south, the oldest daughter of Fred and
Orphia (Armstrong) Busch.  Edwin remembers the time I came with my
Dad and sister to get apples one summer, and claims he looked at me
then when I was only seven!  I don't remember it.

As years went by, my family moved to Dodge County where I attended
grade school and graduated from Hooper High School.  Our paths never
crossed again until 1936 when a romance began and we were married
the following year.

Edwin began farming when he was thirteen, due to his father's ill
health.  He used three horses on a walking plow and walking
cultivator, and recalls hauling sand in a box wagon with four
horses, from Winslow, Nebraska in 1925 when a horse barn was built. 
It cost $1,295.00 then and still stands, being reroofed only once
after 53 years.  At one time it served as a milking barn and now is
a farrowing barn for sows.

The original home was added onto by his parents, and at the time of
our marriage the older part was removed and a two-story of four
rooms was built.  A completely new home was built in 1970.  The old
house was sold and moved away.

Edwin's occupation has been farming and livestock feeding.  He
started by feeding two calves and gradually increased over the
years.  He was honored in 1976 for having been a shipper to the
Omaha stockyards for 50 years.

We have both been active in the community, Edwin served as director
of Hewitt school for twelve years, served on Farmers Union board,
and was a 4-H leader and assistant leader.  I was also a 4-H leader
a number of years, belonged to an Extension club in Hooper, and
taught Sunday school for over twenty years.  I served various
auxiliaries of the Redeemer Lutheran church in Hooper where we are
members.  We both serve as officers on West Admah Cemetery
Association and presently belong to Danish Brotherhood lodge 206 of
Blair.

We have one son James E. born in 1939.  He is married to Alice
Wittman, daughter of Wallace and Hilda Wittman of the Hooper area.
They have four children, Dwight born in 1962, Virginia born 1964,
David born 1967, and Eric born 1975.  James and his family reside on
the former Hewitt farm purchased in 1955, and a new home was built
in 1966.  James has taken over the farming, now amounting to 920
acres, and livestock operation of feeding cattle and rasing hogs.
We enjoy our semiretirement living in the country having a garden
and flowers, and watching the crops grow.  This has been our life.

Obituary

The Hooper Sentinel 
February 7, 1929

Death's Summons came to James C. Dam on Jan. 30

Town friends, in common with the country friends of the James  C.
Dam family, of northeast of Hooper, were grieved last Thursday
morning when word was heard that Mr. Dam had passed away about five
o'clock the evening before from an affliction of heart trouble and
complications.  He had been in failing health for about three years
but not ill enough to keep him bedfast any length of time and on
the day of his death he had been up and around as usual. Tho he had
suffered a recurrent attack from his malady that day his condition
was not considered dangerous and when death came to him it came as
a sudden shock to relatives and also friends. His death removed
from the Admah community one of its most highly respected resident.

James Christian Dam, was born in Skandeborg, Denmark, on December
25, 1872, and departed this life on January 30, 1929, at the age of
70 year, 1 month and 5 days.  When a young man he came to this
country and after spending some years in the vicinity of Fremont he
returned to Denmark where on March 29, 1893 he was united in
marriage to Marie Dam, after which they came to this country to
make their home.  They spent a few years at Fremont and then moved
to a farm in the Argo locality, where they lived for 9 years. Later
they purchased the farm on which the family has now lived for the
past 24 years.  He was confirmed and brought up in the Lutheran
faith at an early age, and has always been faithful to his church.

Since coming to this country Mr. Dam has prospered in his
agricultural pursuits, became a man well liked among his fellowmen
and was one it was a pleasure to have as a friend. He, also, was
active in the affairs of his neighborhood and his passing is
sincerely regretted by the many acquaintances he had made while
living among us.

He leaves to mourn his departure his wife and four children, Mrs.
Anton Petersen of Hooper, Mrs. J. K. Larsen of Davey, Mrs. W. R.
Christiansen of Herman, and Edwin at home; three grandaughters, two
sisters in Denmark and one brother in Indiana.  A son preceded him
in death

The funeral was held Saturday afternoon with services at one
o'clock at the home and at two o'clock from the Danish Lutheran
church near Admah, with Rev. J. C. Petersen of Audubon, Iowa in
charge.  The services were largely attended, with a number of
friends being present from Davey and Fremont.  Internment was made
in the church cemetery.

James C. Dam

James C. Dam came to America from Jutland, Denmark, as a young man,
after serving his country in the Danish army and as a guard for the
King.

He worked his way  from New York to Chicago and to Nebraska where he
was employed as a hired hand in the vicinity northwest of Fremont.
We remember his telling how he helped cut ice on the Missouri River,
the year of the blizzard of 1888, and how he swapped his fur
overcoat for a gold watch with cousins John and Mads Dam who were
going on west to seek their fortune.  He never heard from them, but
some 50 years later, descendants have been located in the Valentine
and Gordon, Nebraska area.

James C. then returned to his native land and married Marie Dam in
1893, and came back to America to establish their home.  They spent
two years on a farm in the Bluffs area northwest of Fremont which
belonged to John Hendricksen.  Here a daughter Emelie and a son
Martin were born.  Mr. Dam contacted typhoid fever and was very ill.
Doctor Zellers drove his horse and buggy out from Hooper every day
to attend him.  It was a miracle he lived.

Those were difficult weeks for his wife who could not speak English,
but kind Danish neighbors helped her through it.

They then moved to a farm in the Argo vicinity in Burt County and
rented a farm for 9 years.  Here their son Martin died of a rupured
appendix at the age of 3 1/2 years.  He is buried at West Admah
Cemetery.  Two more daughters were born, Anna and Emma.

In 1905 they purched an 80 acre farm in Section 33 of Washington
County, from Mrs. H. V. Hansen.  Here a son Edwin was born in 1907.

James C. Dam died in 1929.  Edwin had taken over the farming at a
early age due to his father's ill health.  Edwin and his mother
continued living on the farm until 1937 when he married the former
Lucinda Busch, daughter of Fred and Orphia Busch of Hooper.  Marie
Dam then moved to a home in Hooper, purchased by her son, but now
residing at the home farm place at the time of her death in 1938. 

The descendants of James C. and Marie Dam are; Emelie Dam married to
Anton Petersen of Admah, have one daughter Lillie married to David
Woodcock of Fremont.  Their children are La-- and Rodney, and Emily
married to Davlid Smith have one daughter Stacy.

Anna Dam married to J.L. Larsen of Davey, Nebraska have one daughter
Marie married to Eric Rasmussen of Fairmont, Nebraska.  The children
are E. Clark and Luann marrried to Robert Ohlinger.

Emma Dam married to William Christiansen of Admah, have one daughter
Bergette married to Alfred Lang of Lincoln.  Their children are Pat
married and has a son Billy, Margaret married to Kenneth Felsing,
Charles is married and Grace is at home.

Edwin Dam married to Lucinda Busch of Hooper area.  They have one
son James E. married to Alice Wittman.  Their children are Dwight,
Virginia, David and Eric.  Submitted by Mrs. Edwin Dam

Uehling Dairy Worker's Death Termed Suicide

Uehling - Harvey Gerhardt, 44, Uehling dairy worker, died Thursday
aftrernoon in a farm field about 5 miles southeast of here from what
County Attorney Forrest A. Johnson said was apparently a self-
inflicted gun wound.

The circumstances were pieced together by Johnson as follows:
Gerhardt had stopped his car on the Strand farm.  Barton Magnuson,
Uehling farmer who was mowing the fied, saw him and stopped the
tractor to talk to him briefly at the edge of the field.

Magnuson said Gerhardt had the shotgun and was "waving it around."
Magnuson said he turned back to the tractor to resume the mowing
when he heard the gun fire and turned to find Gerhardt on the
ground, shot between the throad and left shoulder.

Jonson said the jugular vein was severed and Gerhardt apparently
died a few minutes later.  The county attorney added there is a
possibility the shot was accidental but the angle of the shotgun
blast and other circumstances made him believe the shot was
intentional.

Deputy Couty Attorney Richard L. Kuhlman and Sheriff Pelham McGee
assisted with the investigation.

Gerhardt, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Louis Gerhardt, was born June 5,
1910 at Western and was reared by Mr. and Mrs. Peter Larson of
Uehling.  

Gerhardt married Anna Mallette Aug. 23, 1937, at Fremont.  The couple
lived near Uehling several years before moving to Omaha where they
lived for 13 years before returing to Uehling.

The deceased is survived by his widow, and two brothers, Raymond of
Amarillo, Tex., and Chester of California.

Funeral services will be held Sunday at 2:30 p.m., at the Wollmer
and Warne Funeral Home at Hooper.  The Rev. E. T. Chindvall will
officiate, and interment will be in the West Admah Cemetery in the
Swaburg community.

John Hanson, road overseer of District No. 4 of this county, living
2 1/2 miles southwest of Argo, was killed in an accident near
Uehling, yesterday afternoon.

Hanson and his son, Christian, were hauling material for a bridge
near the Daubert farm.  They left Uehling with their loads of
lumber, the son following, and were only half a mile out of town,
north, when Hanson's horses became unmanagable in descending a hill.
The driver in his efforts to gain control of the team fell, or was
thrown in front of the wheels, which passed over his head, causing
almost instant death.  He was carried back to town and a doctor
called, but nothing could be done to save him, the heavey load had
crushed out his life.   Coroner Overgaard of Dodge County was
notified and an inquest was held to-day which established the fact
that death was caused by an accident.  Hanson was about 38 years old

Death Claims Pioneer of the Admah Vicinity

Shortly after 4 o'clock Monday afternoon, April 2, death came to end
the earthly career of Nels Hansen, a pioneer resident of the Admah
neighborhood, at his home 8 miles northeast of Hooper.  His death is
attributed to infirmities due to old age and a heart trouble from
which he had been a sufferer for several years.  He had reached the
age of 79 years, 6 months and 9 days.

Mr. Hansen was a native of Denmark and was born there Sept. 23,
1843.  There he grew to manhood, coming to America in 1868.  His
first home in this country was in Illinois where he resided five
years.  In 1873 he came to Nebraska and located on the farm that had
been his home ever since.  On Febr. 23, 1887, at Chicago he was
united in marriage to Miss Sophia Christensen, who died June 6,
1897.  He was the father of three children, two of whom died in
infancy, the surviving child being his daughter, Miss Christine, who
now has the sympathy of the community in her loss.  He is also
survived by a brother, Hans Hansen, of Omaha.

In his fifty years of residence in his community Mr. Hansen had
always commanded the highest respect and confidence of his fellowmen
for he was a man whose life was an open book, a man of high
Christian character, a man much devoted to his home and family and
one who in life done much to help his unfortunate friends and
neighbors, and all who knew him best regret his passing.

The funeral will be held today with services at noon at the home and
at one o'clock at the Admah Danish Lutheran church with Rev. James
C. Peterson, of Fremont, conducting them.  Interment will be made in
the church cemetery.

Child Passes away in Omaha Hospital

Mae Elizabeth Hanson, three-year daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Carl
Hanson, of Lyons, died at an Omaha hospital on April 30 after a
brief illness.  Mrs. Hanson will be remembered as a former Hooper
girl, Jesse Christiansen, daughter of the late J. R. Christiansen
and Mrs. Christiansen, of east of town, and has many friends in
this community who deeply sympathize with her and Mr. Hanson in
their loss.  The following obituary is take from the Lyons Mirror-
Sun.

"Mae Elizabeth Hanson was born May 28, 1919, and died April 30,
1923, aged 3 years 11 months and 2 days.  She was a precious child
- the only one left to her parents, and their loss is the keener,
since so much of expectation was wrapped up in her.  She was
stricken only a week ago, and seemed to be recuperating
satisfactorily, until the latter part of last week, when she was
taken worse, and though taken to the hospital in Omaha, where the
most skilled care was commanded in her interest, yet she passed
away Monday to her eternal rest.

"While the taking of these loved ones sadden our hearts today, yet
'of such is the kingdom of heaven.'  Heaven will be the brighter
and our interests therein the greater, because of the presence of
these whom we have loved long since and lost awhile.

"A brief recessional service was held from the parents home, 4
miles northeast of town.  Music was furnished by Mrs. Wilbur
Newell, Miss Lily Myers, Mrs. Harry Pearson and A. G. Anderson.
Burial was held at Admah in Washington county.  A formal funeral
service was had there, music being provided by Emil Christensen,
Miss Lura Hoppel and Mrs. G. A. Hoppel.  The profusion of Beautiful
flowers offered by sympathizing neighbors and friends were cared
for by Mrs. G. E. Davis, an intimate neighbor of the family.  The
religious service was in charge of Rev. J. H. Salsbury, D. D.,
pastor of the Lyons Presbyterian church."

Obituary 

The Hooper Sentinel 
June 8, 1944

Death Yesterday of Centenarian

Swaburg - Carl Jorgensen, Swaburg centenarian, passed away
yesterday afternoon at the Dodge county hospital where he had
recently been taken for more expert care after a period of failing
health due to the infirmities of his venerable age.  The 100th
birthday anniversary was celebrated last December at the James P.
Johnson home, the daughter with whom his declining days were spent.

At that time the following outstanding events of 100 years of
living a span of life rarely obtained, were chronicled in this
newspaper.

Mr. Jorgensen was born at Gerskov, Denmark, Dec. 4, 1843, where he
lived until he was 57 years of age, working as a fireman on an
entertainment boat and for a light plant.  He was a veteran of the
war between Denmark and Germany in 1864 and present war conditions
often troubled his mind.

He came with his family to this country in 1900 to join three sons
already in Nebraska, settling in the Argo community where he opened
and operated a blacksmith shop.

Mr. and Mrs. Jorgensen celebrated their golden wedding anniversary
in 1921 with all their seven children present.  In 1926 they moved
to Uehling where Mrs. Jorgensen passed away in 1934 at the age of
82, a son, Hans, dying a few years ago.

The living children are Mrs. Marie Christensen of Uehling; John of
Pascagoula, Miss.; Lars of Richmond, Calif.; Nels of Flager, Colo.;
Mrs. Chris Nelson of Beatrice, and Mrs. Johnson of Swaburg.  There
are 31 grandchildren and 21 great-grandchildren.

Mr. Jorgensen, though a man of small stature, enjoyed good health
and the visits of relatives and friends until past his 100th year,
though his advanced age had somewhat affected his sight and
hearing.

Funeral rites will be held Saturday afternoon at 1:30 o'clock from
the Wollmer & Warne funeral home in Hooper and at 2:00 o'clock from
the Congregational church in Uehling with Rev. Arthur Swanson of
Oakland officiating.

Interment will be in the Danish cemetery southeast of Uehling.

Note: According to the LDS Family Search he was born at Gierskov,
Odense, Fyn, Denmark.

Died - Lars Jorgenson of Swaburg has committed suicide by hanging.


Note:   Both of his wives are bured at the West Admah Cemetery. 
See the item, below by Randy Cordes, for more information concerning 
the grave of Lars.  

Lars Jorgensen was born in  Sonder Jellinge, Hyllested parish, on
Nov. 1, 1838 to farmowner Jorgen Olsen and wife Karen Madsdatter.
Lars Jorgensen, 28, from Sonder Jellinge serving in Sterrede and
Margrethe Andersdatter, 21, from Venslev were married in Venslev
parish on June 9, 1865.  

Lars, 33 and Margrethe, 26 Jorgensen emigrated to the New York, USA
on April 14, 1870 on the ship Ocean Queen with their daughter,
Christine, 3 1/2.


Children of Lars & Margrethe Jorgensen:

Lars Jorgensen

Andrew and Mary (Hansen) Petersen, who had thirteen children, were
the parents of my grandmother, Margrethe, who was born at Venslov,
Soro County, Slagelse, Sjaelland, Denmark, on December 19, 1843,
their fourth child and fourth girl.

Grandpa also came from Denmark, and he was born February 1838.   It
is believed Grandma and Grandpa came to America about 1870 when her
parents came.  My Grandma’s oldest sister, Ane Olson, was the only
member of the who stayed in Denmark.  She was married, but they
were childless.  Her husband did not succumb to the “American Fever”
like the rest of the sons-in-law.

My grandparents were married in Denmark and the parents of one
daughter born there in 1865.  Aunt Christine, a young newcomer to
America, later became Mrs. Otto Hansen.  My grandparents were the
parents of  two other daughters born in America, namely; Mrs. Amos
(Alma) Brodersen, and Mrs. Rasmus (Agnes) Hendrickson (my mother).
They farmed near her parents who farmed in Washington County. 

Grandma died September 16, 1878, at only thirty-five years of age so
I never knew her.  My mother and aunt were not in school yet at the
time.  Grandma was the first of the Andrew Petersen children to die
in their new country.  There were three others (Maren Clausen,
Johanna Mogensen Christiansen, and Sophia, a young child) to die
before their parents and the 1900’s.

Grandpa was married a second time to Louise who had a son of her own
however, she died young in 1886 too.  Both Grandma and Louise are
buried with markers at the West Admah Cemetery.

Grandpa had a crippled leg which made it hard for him to tend to his
farm. The loss of his mates so young was also a further burden.  It
is presumed that it was in a fit of despair he put a halter around
his neck and hanged himself in the barn.  It is uncertain the date
of his death, but I’m sure it was around the 1890’s. Because suicide
was considered a such a gross sin in those days I’m not sure if he
is buried with my Grandma or not.  There is no marker indicating so.

Today we put mental disorders with cancer, heart trouble, etc. as an
illness.  Certainly no one is condemned to hell with cancer!  When a
man’s heart has been made right (before despondency), we know that
is what is important.  I trust he had that rightness.

Grandpa and Grandma have several great-grandchildren in the general
area of Blair.  Her sisters and brothers who lived in the area were
Mrs. Hans (Karen) Fredricksen - widowed - Mrs. Christian (Noer)
Andersen; Mrs. Christian (Maren) Clausen; Mrs. Peter ( Marie)
Christainsen; Mrs. Louis (Stine) Johnson; Mrs. Nels (Johanna)
Mogensen - widowed - Mrs. Paul Christiansen; Hans Christian
Andersen; James Andersen, Lars Andersen, and John Andersen.

Concerning the grave of Lars Jorgensen: Are you familiar with
“Witching for Graves”? Just as it is possible for some people to
witch for water, it is possible for some people to witch for
persons, both those buried and those alive. I have the ability to
witch for graves. It is also possible while witching, to determine
the sex (male or female) of the person, whether living or deceased
and in the ground. The human body emits an energy field or aura that
causes two pieces of wire to react. I use two pieces of Number 9
wire bent to an “L” shape; I hold the short end of each wire in
front of my chest (one in each hand) and walk toward a living person
or walk over a grave. When I am next to a man (living) or standing
above a man’s grave, the two pieces of wire cross in front of my
chest. When next to a woman or over a woman’s grave, the wires go to
the outside. Yes, when I first was told about witching (in early
1990’s), I thought the man was pulling my leg. I was skeptical until
he showed me how it worked, and even more surprised when I found
that I could get the same response. 

What does all this have to do with Lars Jorgensen. I believe he is
buried next to his two wives, just to the south. There is no stone
there for Lars. However, West Admah Cemetery records show that his
cemetery plot included space for several more graves than just those
occupied by Margrethe and Louise. When I “witched” the grave site
just south of Margrethe and Louise, my witching wires indicated that
a man was buried there.

My research of microfilm of newspapers from 1901 reporting the death
of Lars Jorgensen indicate that he was buried in the West Admah
Cemetery. With that being the case, it is only logical to conclude
that he was buried in the cemetery plot that he had paid for (I
assume when Margrethe died in 1878).

Spouse 1 = Hans Brodersen
Spouse 2 = Tortner Niels Hansen (1867)
Spouse 3 = Lars Jorgensen (1884)

Maiden Name = Louise Margretha Hansen

Parents =  Hans & Karen Kirstine Hansen

Her full name was LOUISE MARGRETHA (HANSEN) BRODERSEN / HANSEN
/JORGENSEN. She was born on Tuesday, April 12, 1836, at the Bibyjard
Farm, Borup, Denmark (20 miles southwest of Copenhagen). Her parents
were HANS HANSEN and KAREN KIRSTINE (_____________) HANSEN. 

Louise was baptised on May 8, 1836, in Denmark; she was confirmed on
July 23, 1850, in Denmark. The precise location of these two events
is unknown. 

She was first married to HANS BRODERSEN, date unknown. It appears
that Hans Brodersen died some time in 1867, but there is no
confirmation to date (2007). Louise was married (2nd marriage) on
Friday, April 5, 1867, to TORTNER NIELS HANSEN at Slotskirken in
Copenhagen, Denmark. Her third marriage was to LARS JORGENSEN (see
below). 

Louise’s 2nd husband, Tortner Niels Hansen, worked for the King of
Denmark as a carpenter, night watchman, gatekeeper, and repairman;
one of his duties was the lighting of the lamps each night at the
King’s Palace. The Danish King at the time was King Christian IX,
who reigned from 1863 to 1906. 

Louise was a seamstress, cook, and excelled in hand embroidery. She
was also a servant for the Queen of Denmark. Tortner Niels Hansen
died on Tuesday, September 13, 1881, from back injuries resulting
from a fall; he was buried in Denmark (we assume in Copenhagen, but
exact location is unknown). 

Louise had one son, WALTER ELIAS HANSEN; he was born on Friday,
September 20, 1867, in Copenhagen, Denmark. It is unclear whether
Hans Brodersen or Tortner Niels Hansen is Walter’s biological
father. Louise was 4 months pregnant with Walter when she married
Tortner. Unanswered questions include, “Did Hans Broderson die after
Walter was conceived and then Louise married Tortner Niels Hansen?”
It appears that this was the case. When my Aunt Melva Christensen
(from Oakland, Nebraska) researched this issue a number of years
ago, that was her impression, but was unable to find 100%
confirmation. 

Following the death of Tortner Niels Hansen in 1881, Louise Hansen
decided that she and her son, Walter Hansen, should immigrate to the
United States. They departed from Copenhagen on October 14, 1882,
aboard the Steamer “Hekla.” Walter was 15 years old at the time; his
mother, Louise, was 46 years of age. New York City was their port of
arrival on or about November 4, 1882. They traveled by rail to
Oakland, Nebraska, to live with relatives, Rasmus and Marie
Petersen, Walter’s aunt and uncle. The Petersen’s farm from Oakland
was 1 mile east, 10 miles south, 1 mile east, and ½ mile south. The
Petersen farm adjoined the Jens Jensen farm, where Walter’s future
wife, Anna Jensen, was living; Anna was 10 years of age when Louise
and Walter moved onto the neighboring farm. 

After 1½ years in Nebraska and the United States, Louise was
remarried to LARS JORGENSEN; the wedding was held on Tuesday, May
13, 1884, in Washington County, Nebraska. This was a 2nd marriage
for Lars and a 3rd marriage for Louise. 

Louise died on Monday, September 6, 1886, in Burt County, Nebraska;
the cause of death is unknown. She was buried at the West Admah
Cemetery in Lars Jorgensen’s cemetery plot. 

Note: There is one gravestone for both of Lars Jorgensen’s wives;
his first wife, Margrethe was buried on the east side of the stone;
Louise was buried on the west side of the stone.

Note: Randy Cordes sent this information to me on February 15, 2007.

Received from Nacy Knipp on 2-17-2009

Peter Nelson was married to Anne Hustrue (both buried at the Admah
Cemetery). Anne passed away March 17, 1887. After Anne passed away,
Peter was left with three children. He hired a housekeeper (Bertha
Rasmussen to keep house and care for his children. Peter and Bertha
were married October 25, 1887. He was 35 years old and she was 16.
The marriage lasted until 1890. It is not known whether there was a
divorce. Peter became ill, was treated at Immanuel Hospital, Omaha,
Nebraska,and eventually passed away there July 23, 1891. His death
certificate indicates he had a spinal disease. He lists that he is
married on his death certificate. Bertha Rasmussen was my great
grandmother. I have been researching my family's history for over 10
years. Nels Petersen is my great grandfather (buried in West Admah
Cemetery). My grandfather was Emil Petersen (buried in Hooper
Cemetery). My father was Victor Petersen (buried in the Hooper
Cemetery).

I have often wondered what ever happened to the children. Their
father and mother had both passed away and Bertha hadn't lived at
the residence for over a year. Thomas would have been 16, Christeen
13 and Nels 12. If you need any records or additional information,
please contact me at my e-mail address. Thank you.

Mrs. Nels Petersen

The Rev. Arnold Thoren of Swaburg conducted funeral services on
Monday afternoon for Mrs. Nels Petersen, who passed away at her
home at Admah early Saturday morning, after a lingering illness.
The services which were very largely attended, were held at the
late home.  Pastor Thoren brought words of comfort to the bereaved
family, speaking from the text, "There remaineth therefore a
Sabbath rest to the people of God".  Mrs. Thoren and Miss Luella
Sampson sang "Jesus Lover of My Soul:, "Rock of Ages" and "In the
Sweet By and By".  There was a beautiful and profuse floral
offering.  Interment was made in the family lot in the Danish
Lutheran cemetery at Admah.  Six sons and son-in-law bore their
mother to her final resting place, namely Louis, Anton, Emil and
Julius Petersen and Herman Borcherding and Henry Luther. The
funeral was under the direction of Wollmer & Warne.

The deceased who was aged 77 years, was born in Denmark on June 16,
1857.  There she was baptized and confirmed in the Lutheran faith.
She came to the United States in 1880, with her brother, the late
Hans Nelson, and for several years she had employment in Burt
county.  On October 16, 1882, she was united in marriage to Nels
Petersen, and they established their home on the farm in Admah.
Retiring from active farm life in 1917, they built a cottage home
on the farm site, where they might spend their declining years in
ease and comfort.  Mrs. Petersen was a great lover of flowers and
took especial delight and interest in caring for them. She devoted
her self to the welfare of her family, and was a good friend and
neighbor.

Besides the 86 year old husband, there remains to mourn the passing
of this loving mother, two sons and three daughters.  They are Emil
Petersen, of Hooper, Julius Petersen, of Fremont, Mrs. Herman
Borcherding, of Hooper, Mrs. John Ladd, of Bancroft and Mrs. Henry

The Washington County History

Alvis Petersen

My Grandfather, Nels Petersen, was born in
Copenhagen, Denmark, and came to this country when ninteen years of
age, coming first to Chicago.  He worked on a farm in Illinois and
later bought a team and wagon and worked his way westward, coming to
Nebraska.  He came to Sheridan Township in Washington County because
he knew there were many people of Danish ancestry living here, and
settled in the community which is known as Admah.

In 1872 he bought 80 acres of land from P. Rasmussen, for six
dollars an acre.  He lived for five years in a dougout on the place,
getting his water from an open well in a bucket.

In 1876, my grandfather married Marie Hansen, who passed away in
1881, leaving two sons, Louis and Anton,  In 1882, he married May
Nelson, and to this union were born six children; Emil, Julius, Mrs.
Herman (Marie) Borcherding, Mrs. John (Lena) Ladd, Mrs. Henry
(Esther) Luther and Mrs. Edgar (Annie) Adams.  All are deceased.

Louis, the oldest son, was my father. He married Dora Marie Andersen
in 1905, and they lived in the Admah community.  I was born Sept. 6,
1905, the first child, and had two sisters Ethel and Myrtle.

On Sept. 8 1926, I married Agnes Monson, of Craig, Nebraska.  She
was born in rural Burt County, between Uehling and Oakland, Dec. 29,
1903.  Our first seven years we lived on one of my grandfather's
farms.  This is the place where the Admah store was situated, and
was later torn down.

We have three children, Mrs. Robert (Glennice) Brelsford of Waukee,
Iowa; Mrs. William (Arlene) Gerliep, of Monson, Mass., and Norman,
who lives a mile north of us.  We also have seven grandchildren.

After my grandfather's death, we bought the home Petersen place and
in August, 1972, we received the Ak-Sar-Ben Pioneer Farm award for
living on the farm which had been in the Petersen family for 100
years.

In 1974, we sold our farm to our son, Norman.  We are retired, but
still living on the farm.  We are members of Elim Lutheran Church of
rural Hooper, where my wife was organist for many years.

She retired in November, 1979, and received a plaque for 45 years of
dedicated service as organist.  We celbrated or 50th anniversary on
September 5, 1976.

Four Generations of Petersens have attended the Hewitt school, in
the northwestern part of the county; my father, myself, our children
and three of our grandchildren.  I have lived in the Admah community
all my life.  Submitted by Alvis Petersen.

Obituary

The Hooper Sentinel 
October 27, 1921

Brother of Mrs. Bott Succumbs at Norfolk

Mrs. J. R. Bott received the sad intelligence, Tuesday, that her
brother, William A. Williamson, of Orchard, had passed away early
that morning at a Norfolk hospital, following an illness of two
months.  About the first of September, Mr. Williamson was taken to
the hospital to undergo an operation for appendicitis.
Complications set in and since then he had been confined in the
hospital, death coming to him on Tuesday.

Mr. Williamson, who was about 49 years of age, was well known to
the people of this community, especially so in the Argo
neighborhood, northeast of Hooper, where he resided practically all
of his life until moving to a farm near Orchard about ten years
ago.  He was a hard working and industrious man, well respected by
all, and notice of his death came as a shock to the former
neighbors and friends down here.  He is survived by the widow and
six children, and two sisters, Mrs. Bott, of this place, and Mrs.
Emma Van Valin, of Oregon.

The remains were brought to Hooper yesterday afternoon, and are now
at Bucholz Bros. undertaking parlors awaiting the funeral services
which will be held tomorrow morning at the Argo Danish cemetery
upon the arrival of the funeral cortege which leaves the
undertaking parlors at 10 o'clock.

Interment will be made beside the remains of the daughter who had
preceded the father in death.
