My husband's grandfather, Julian Jacobson was born in Gross in 1898. His father owned a farm called "Sylvan". The whole family moved from that area to California in the 1920's. Does anyone have any idea where this farm would have been located? Julian's parents' names were Severt Knut Jacobson and Anna Marie Brandvig. Also his mother, Anna is buried in Rosedale Cemetery. Does anyone know where this is located?

I am looking for info on the family of William and Susan BOYD, my great-grandparents. They moved to Naper from Meadows of Dan Virginia around 1900 and lived in Naper until at least 1930. Their children were William Freeman, Virgie, Velva, Nora, Fred Allen, Uel, and Tressa. I think all children were born in Naper. If any one knew this family or has any info please contact me. Thank you, Sherri.

I found a photo in an inherited bundle of "things" that has caught my attention. The note on the back "Our good neighbors - Mr. and Mrs. Bollinger - Anoka, Nebr before 1913". The Bollingers would have been neighbors to Peter and Ida Thurstenson during this time. The Thurstensons were living on a 160 acre farm with the Valley View School at the NE corner of their farm. This location is NE of Anoka and about 1 mile south of the SD state line. I have scanned the photo if anyone is interested in it and I would like any information someone might have on this couple.

Hoping to find clues about my Weisser and Luth families! Looking for any information on Christian or Margaret Reich Weisser who lived in Tyndall, SD in the late 1800's. They came from a small German town in Russian, possibly around 1874, to the United States (South Dakota). Their children were Christian, Michael, John, Pauline (my ggrandmother), and Julia. Julia's married name was Carter. One of the brothers may have lived in Washington state or Oregon in the 1930's (Michael probably). Some family info says that Margaret took in laundry and Christian was a brewery worker. They may have been in the Boyd County, NE area at one time.
Pauline married Alois Kraemer (had son Frank) and, later, in Boyd County, NE, Pauline married August G. Luth (their daughter, Violet, was my grandmother). August's family has ties to Boyd County.
If anyone knows of this family or has any info, please let me know. Thanks!

Trying to LOCATE THE BURIAL PLACE of C. C. DODGE who was shot (?murdered) in (??) Boyd Co., NE on 20 Dec 1891. Can't find an actual printed obituary. See additional information in obituaries section of Boyd Co., NE web page on newspaper articles from Adel, IA (previous home of C. C. DODGE. Not even sure the shooting took place in Boyd County but based on newspaper articles published in Adel, Dallas Co., IA and also the fact that it was near the Niobrara River, I'm assuming this was Boyd County.

C. C. DODGE SHOT.
This morning W. E. McROBERT of Leonia came into town bringing with him one George WILKINSON, who gave himself up to the sheriff, stating that he had shot C. C. DODGE, of Dodge's ferry on the Niobrara river yesterday afternoon and although he did not know positively he believed Mr. DODGE was dead. Mr. McROBERT informed THE FRONTIER reporter that it was a case which grew out of some land trouble. WILKINSON filed on an island just across from DODGE's old home and upon which DODGE had built a house and expected to put a filing but as we understand had not, for some reason, been able to file. WILKINSON built a house and went over recently to occupy it. DODGE went yesterday afternoon, armed with an ax, to run WILKINSON off. An alternation ensued. WILKINSON states that DODGE came at him and knocked him over a log, striking at him with the ax, and as he was getting up came at him again. WILKINSON pulled his pistol, a 32 calibre, and fired six times, one or more shots taking effect in DODGE's body. DODGE started for his house and when near there was seen to place his hands to his breast and fall forwards. WILKINSON is in jail here and will have a preliminary hearing soon. His father-in-law was an eye witness of the quarrel. It is a sad affair all around and its fatal results must be deplored. We trust, however, that it is not as serious as feared.

THE DODGE SHOOTING.
The worst fears concerning the shooting of Capt. C. C. DODGE have been realized, as the shot proved fatal. WILKINSON, who did the shooting was taken over to Boyd county Monday by Sheriff JAMISON, and a preliminary hearing given him. We have not learned the result of it, but presume he will be bound over. We did not learn particulars of the funeral, either.
