 The month of February found Jeff Kappeler front stage, with the update of his huge project of Hohenwald, Tennessee, where several of his family relatives lived.  He has been a busy person searching for anything and everything that pertains to Hohenwald.  Lucky him, he found a special photograph he had been searching for, for a long time.  Visited the courthouses and finding valuable information in old books and some tucked in unusual places.   This is a big project that Jeff and his cousin in Tennessee are working on, but it will be great when completed.  I might add a stranger to Jeff drew up a map of the old original town and placing everyone that lived there within its city limits. Now that was a big step back in time.

Margie Sobotka finished indexing the Brainard, Nebraska book that was just purchased.  An index is always so nice to have with a new book for the shelf.


February 1865 is the only month in recorded history not to     have a full moon.

A cat has 32 muscles in each ear.

The dime has 118 ridges around the edge.

Butterflies taste with their feet.

Rubber bands last longer when refrigerated.

                                and lastly

If you are an average American, in your whole life, you will spend an average of 6 months waiting at red lights.

An important news item which was overlooked last week, was the lectures given by Rev Baenisch, of Berlin, Germany, at the German Lutheran church on Monday and Tuesday evenings.  Rev Baenisch has had a great deal of experience as missionary in South Africa and China and in his lectures explained the ways and customs of the people of these countries, all of which was very interesting to the large number present.  The lecture was interspersed with a hundred stereoptican views taken by him while on his missionary travels which helped to impress the subject on the minds of the people.

 MARRIAGE LICENSE – “I want a paper,” said a young man who walked into County Judge Briggs’ office today with a look of diffidence on his face, showing inexperience in the matrimonial line.  “You mean a license?” queried the judge.  “Yes, that’s it,” responded his visitor, and a license was made out.  It was to Marion Avery, 30, of Rogers, and Una V Butterfield, 27, of North Bend.

    Fremont Tribune 22 March 1904  4:1

The marriage of Warren Avery to Miss Una Butterfield took place at the Purple Cane M E parsonage Wednesday evening of last week, Rev Campbell officiating.  Both bride and bridegroom are well known about this and the surrounding neighborhood and all wish them a long and happy voyage through life.  They will make their home on the farm belonging to Mr Avery, three miles northeast of Rogers.
