Kappeler tells everyone they will enjoy the May speaker. He has
collected for many years and is always seeking out old farmsteads where
trash was always thrown, pits or otherwise!
The April meeting was
given by Claire Mares and covered some of the unusual foreign wills from
the Dodge County records. She also used some of her own very old
records from the 1700’s to show that checking the old inventories and
wills can give you a better understanding about the family and what was
considered very important in those years. One noted a suit of clothes
was listed in a will to be given to a certain friend of the family.
Another gave his set of pistols, holsters and a breast plate.

STEAM FERRY ON PLATTE
A PERFECT SUCCESS!!
Mr Ransford, not
liking the manner in which the TRIBUNE deals with “nuisances,” and
feeling considerably exercised by some items in its columns, determined
to change its tune and his manner of doing business, and instead of now
deserving censure is entitled to praise for his energy and activity in
rendering crossing of the Platte certain, safe and speedy. Last week we
noted the fact that he had purchased an engine and was setting the same
up on his ferry-boat. Wednesday last, a trial was made of the steam
ferry and found to be a perfect success. In a short time the teams that
have been waiting for several days to get across the stream were ferried
over, and during the day teams were crossed as fast as they arrived. We
can now confidently say that steam power on the Platte river is a
success, and as soon as the fact becomes known that Fremont has a
reliable ferry we may look for a large increase in trade.
