What a lovely turnout
for the October Meeting. The second series on Trails, Road, Canals and
Trains was most interesting. It gave me a whole new aspect of how my
families got to Wisconsin by 1836. It was amazing how fast the train
become a most beneficial way of travel from the 1850's forward.
The month of
November will be our traditional "Show & Tell'
and I know that many
of you have been busy working on the family trees, shaking the branches
and finding new interesting items. Please come and share your finds
with our members. We all learn something new by listening to those who
found new avenues to seek out families, by little clues, and just
accidentally finding a topic that includes your family.
This month holds two
holidays - don't forget the Veteran's Day on November 11th.
And don't forget Thanksgiving Day on Nov 24th. Both are
symbolic days to remember, especially our Veteran's. And for the
Pilgrims honoring Thanksgiving back in the 1600's.

A Handsome Building
Going Up on the
Corner of First and
The old building
formerly occupied by the Fremont Bottling Works and at present used for
a restaurant at the corner of Main and First streets, is being moved in
to First street, where it will remain temporarily, to make room for the
elegant building to be erected by J Archer. The new structure when
completed will be a pride to the city and in the absence of the Union
depot, more especially so to lower Main street. It will be two stories
and basement having a frontage of 44 feet on Main street, by 60 feet in
depth. The first floor will consist of two rooms 22 feet front each,
with 13 foot ceiling; plate front and by reason of the peculiar lay of
the ground which is in close proximity to the tracks, which run
diagonally with the lot, a corner entrance will probably be made. The
second floor will be cut up into ten rooms, with 11 foot ceiling, and
will be used for office and living purposes. The west front will be
built of pressed brick with stone trimmings, and will present an
imposing appearance. The building will be completed about May 1st,
and although the lower rooms have not been leased several applications
for them have already been made.

Our society has
ordered three additional microfilms of the Fremont Weekly Tribune
for our shelves, the dates are from 04 May 1883 thru 27 Feb 1892. We
felt that the first five rolls of the Weekly Tribunes will be beneficial
to those wanting to browse for information. There are times when the
Keene Library also has persons seeking information from the films, so it
is to our advantage to have a set in our library.
Remember to call
Claire for an appointment to use the library, she is always out and
about doing research for our clients out of state. 1-402-721-9553. Best
time to reach her is in the evening!

A very pretty wedding
took place Wednesday evening at the home of Mr & Mrs W N Fischer, 420
Platte avenue, when Miss Ella Douglas and Locke B Moe were united in
marriage. It was a beautiful but simple affair at which only the close
relatives of the couple were present.
The rooms were
decorated for the occasion with chrysanthemums and foliage. Following
several appropriate selections played softly on the piano by Miss Mattie
Reynolds, promptly by 6 o'clock the bride and groom took their places in
the bay window of the parlor before a background of ferns, smilax and
palms. The ceremony was performed by Rev C W Weyer who used the ring
service of the First Presbyterian church. The bride wore a filmy gown
of white chiffon and lace and carried a large bouquet of bride's roses.
A four-course dinner
was served the wedding party by four of the bride's close friends, those
present being seated at one large table in the dining room where the
decorations were very beautiful. Lighted candelabra shone through
festoons of ribbons and carnations which were draped from a wedding bell
above the four corners of the table. The place cards bore the letter M.
D. in gold.
Later in the evening
the bride and groom held an informal reception at their new home on
North Main street recently built and furnished by the groom.
The bride has resided
several years in Fremont and is a favorite in her circle, possessing
refinement and womanly graces. The groom grew to manhood here, was
graduated from the Fremont High School and attended Cornell college in
Iowa two years. He numbers his friends by his acquaintances. He holds
a position as bookkeeper in May Bros wholesale house.
