proved out to be a very interesting meeting. Renee took us out on to
the Web site and used a relative name of Claire's for her subject. She
used her laptop and slides on to the screen. The TV was just a bit too
small to read the information, so she opted to make the program into
slides and project them on to the screen. Incidentally, Renee did find
Claire's long lost relative that she has been searching for and it went
back 4 more generations. Thank you for a delightful program Renee.
Everyone enjoyed it, and also the hand outs you had along for them.
A Thank You to Petey
Croshaw for the book entitled Colonial Records of Virginia. She also
included one for records on Massachusetts.
We received a CD
from Harry Wagner of TX which has 35 Hooper Annuals on it - this will be
a nice addition to our library. Thank you Harry.
We also received a
copy of the 1914-15 Fremont City Directory for our shelves. The
original book is fast deteriorating and the Dodge County Historical
Society asked for a copy to use rather than the original book and we
were able to make ourselves a copy. Thanks to Patty Manhart for
remembering us. The Society is always a helpful place to check for
guidance, and believe me, they have a great photograph collection of

AN AFTERNOON WEDDING
One of Fremont's
Popular Ladies Weds Washington Man
A very pleasant
wedding ceremony was celebrated at 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon, at the
home of Mrs Christine Ruwe, 1234 East Military avenue. The contracting
parties were Miss Anna Ruwe and John H Strickland, of Seattle,
Washington. The affair was a very quiet one, void of all ostentatious
features. Only the immediate relatives of the families were present.
The Rev John F Krueger, pastor of the German Evangelical Lutheran Salem
church, performed the ceremony in a very happy yet impressive manner.
Mr & Mrs Strickland left for one of the eastern states on a short tour,
after which they will return to this city and spend several weeks before
going to their future home in Washington, where the bridegroom is a
prosperous business man.

TRAGEDY AT SCHUYLER
Sheriff Degman Killed

recovery was allowed to return to Schuyler. Later on he became
delirious again and he was confined in the county jail. Yesterday

usual and when he turned to go out Lapour struck him over the head with
a heavy club which felled him to the floor. He then hit him again,
crushing in his skull so that death ensued in a little less than two
hours. Lapour then endeavored to escape but was captured by the deputy
sheriff and locked up again. The club used was a portion of the
