Claire and Rosey Larsen are heading for Lancaster Co PA to finish up
Rosey’s ADAM(S) family history, here in the U.S. She is very
lucky to have distant relatives back there who have done most of the legal
records search and now shares them with her. We are going to take
photos of the old homes, churches and, naturally, the cemeteries. On our
return, Claire will take her to Gettysburg and also to Steubenville OH,
the “City of Murals.” Other places also appear on her list.
The scanning of the tickler file index cards is going very well.
Claire is now in the H’s. It is a good thing that it was too hot
to be outside, she spent her time behind the computer. That is, IF
Snuggles would let her use the screen......a regular computer pest.
She has proof! Finally got a photo of her just before the mouse became
Renee Bunck and Claire Mares attended a two-day conference on NEGEN/WEB.
There were persons from Ohio, Michigan, California, Missouri, Utah and
probably some Claire did not identify. They are all persons who have
roots in Nebraska and are helping to add to the NE county web sites.
Nebraska was also well represented.
FIFTEEN NEW CITIZENS
The population of Dodge county wasn’t materially increased but fifteen
brand new, loyal, patriotic citizens were added to the rolls when district
court concluded its hearings upon applications for citizenship last Saturday.
Judge Button was assisted in the investigation of forty-four applications
by Examiner Wolff, of the government bureau at St Louis. Grants were
made on fifteen applications, eleven were held up because the applicants
waited too long to complete their papers, and fifteen applications – made
by Germans – were held up until the close of the war.
Niels C Nelsen’s application was deferred consideration because he had
been out of the state for a year; J M Hansen’s request for citizenship
was temporarily denied, because of doubt of loyalty to the United States,
while Otto J Behnsky’s application was deferred until he became more familiar
with the rules and regulations pertaining to citizenship.
Applications for citizenship were granted in full to the following:
Wm Krupkinsky, Otto G Thorgerson, Alvin Ruckl, Harold Erling, Sam Rosen,
Louis Zuber, Wm A Pederson, Holgar G Larsen, Amanrus J Pederson, Carl C
Jensen, Marinus Pederson and Christian B Nelsen, all of Fremont; Vaclav
Tobola and Herman Verbeck, both of Scribner, and Gottfried Grunner of Uehling.
The following had permitted their applications to lapse, and will be
required to renew them to secure citizenship: Adolph J Topp, Christian
Jensen, Henry Harmesen, Andrew O Hofstedt, Jens Jensen, Fred Furstenau
and Peter E Lindblac, of Fremont; Gustav Shomshor and Aug Meiselbach of
Scribner; Anton Schulz of Hooper, and Matthew Walter of Dodge.

|It is with sadness that I report that Anna Lu Otteman Meltvedt of Renton
WA passed away on June 30th. Anna Lu completed the indexes to our
Roots & Leaves up to and thru
1991. Her health did not hold out for her to make the next completion.
We are now in need of an indexer from 1992 thru 2002. Anna Lu and
Claire became very good friends, through research together in Lincoln,
on her family lines. She was a very gracious lady and she will be
missed by all. She is survived by her husband Donald Meltvedt.

Judge Bell played a very handsome trick on a couple that came to his
office to be married, on last Monday. The groom inquired of Clerk
Keene if he knew where he could find Judge Bell, he told him he did not.
The couple went into Bell’s (office) to await his arrival.
About noon Judge went to his office, turned the key in the door and
went to dinner. When he returned he sat around Keene’s office a short
time waiting for the matrimonial pair to return but thinking they had secured
the services of a justice, he went to his offices, opened the door, went
in, took a chew of tobacco, blew his nose and seated himself at his table
for business when he heard a giggle, and on looking around, discovered
the couple behind the door. He married them as quickly as possible
and they hastened away for their dinner.
FREMONT’S 32nd ANNIVERSARY
This day, September 10th, is the 32d anniversary of the erection of
the first building put up in Fremont. It was built of cottonwood
poles and covered with hay standing on the present site of the Congregational
church and occupied by E H Barnard, John A Koontz, Leander Gerard and William
(This would be Northeast corner of Military & Broad St)

The first hack on Fowler’s line to Lincoln left town on Tuesday morning
with a couple of passengers. This is the first attempt at regular
communication with the capital; and we hope trade will be sufficient on
the new line to pay the enterprising proprietor. Mr Fowler assures
us he can make as good time from to Lincoln as by any other route and so
soon as certain repairs are made on the road will run a hack through as
often as travel demands.
From Fremont Tribune 4 Sep 1868 3:1
An old citizen was heard to remark a few days since that there was
no stir in building just now, and for the purpose of showing how badly
he was mistaken we will just mention a few that are now in process of completion.
Two good business houses on E street, a large barn at the lodging house,
and several small additions being made to houses already up, while in the
eastern part of town the large residence of Mr Kittle is being put up rapidly.
On Broad street there are two business houses almost completed besides
the large hotel of Mr Huftalen, and several residences in the vicinity.
The work is going on in the residence part of town so fast that we cannot
keep track of only a few – it is no unusual matter for a house to be put
up and occupied before we know anything of it. If anybody thinks
Fremont is not growing rapidly just let them take a walk all over the place
and their opinion will soon change.
