Another great program
for the month of March. John Mitchell of Fremont gave our group a
special program on the Corps of Discovery-Lewis & Clark Expedition. He
came in full costume of the 1804 era and explained the clothing and told
of the only loss in the entire expedition, that of Sgt Floyd, who is
buried at Sioux City, Iowa. It was interesting to know of the various
guns used from pistol to the old Muzzle-loader. Those who were not able
to attend missed a very important program, especially so, since the big
celebration, at Ft Atkinson, was just held in 2004.
Our new President
Jeff Kappeler will take his office the month of April.
Don’t forget to go
see the May Museum this year, for there are some lovely old displays -
Table settings are in many of the rooms, the billiard room has a game
setting, the sun room has been transformed into the Breitling Bakery &
Restaurant. There is, in the library, a transformation of the men’s
room for smoking and indulging in a drink or two. Old photos of the
Fremont Brewing Company, many old cigar boxes, and old liquor bottles on
display. There is even a soda shoppe. The store within the museum has
some beautiful Victorian items for sale. Go take a look and buy!

OF PIONEER WOMEN
MRS HENRY SCHWAB –
Miss Louisa Weigle was born at Long Grove, Ill, July 16, 1855. She came
to Nebraska with her parents and a number of other families by the ox
team route in 1868. They located in Cuming county near West Point where
they lived for about a year then they removed to a farm two miles
north-east of Hooper now occupied by her bother Gus Weigle.
She can relate many
interesting incidents of early pioneer life especially in regard to the
Indians. She will never forget once when a small child the Indians were
unusually terrifying and her parents took her and her brothers and
sisters and hurried to Fontanelle where the few white settlers gathered
in the school house to protect themselves.
She was married to
Henry Schwab June 2, 1874. They took a homestead across the road from
her fathers’ and they resided there until three years ago when they
moved into our little city where they have since resided.
She is the mother
of seven children. Mrs Henry Wagner, Harry, Frank, Edward, Mrs Peter
Ewald, Robert and Elmer, all of Hooper and vicinity.
