Wow! July & August really went fast. Claire took on a volunteer project for the
Clerk of the District Court; the 42 appearance dockets are being indexed for use and will
be on a CD. Minimum of 26,000 names. The original index was lost when they moved to the
new judicial center, therefore, case numbers were also lost, so they could not retrieve a
file for you.
The letters of inquiries are all answered and all new obits have been filed, plus
additional library books.
Do you have an idea for a program? If so, let Claire know what it is and we will try our
best to get it for you. She has exhausted her ideas and needs some new ideas. Yes, we have
funds for a paid speaker!
Our deepest sympathy to Margie Sobotka and her family in the loss of her husband, Rudie
Sobotka. He passed away on 29 July 2003, just went to sleep.
Margie also wants to thank everyone for the many cards and memorials received
in memory of Rudie. He will be greatly missed.
ON THE MEND
Word was received from Jan Davis that she is now out of the hospital and temporarily at
her sons home in Pueblo CO. This was great news!

Maiden Days of Our Women
Mrs O A Himebaugh
Miss Elsina Canaga was born in Scio, Harrison County Ohio, Nov 5, 1837. She came to
Nebraska with her parents in 1857, locating on a homestead near Fontanelle.
She was married Feb 5, 1859 to Mr O A Himebaugh. They went to housekeeping on a homestead
that Mr Himebaugh bought and proved up on. The farm was located 3 ½ miles from here on
Maple Creek. In 1870 they built a home at the end of the railroad at that time just north
Mr Himebaugh was engaged in the grain and lumber business there for a short time. The same
fall on Thanksgiving Day they moved their house to our city where Mr Himebaugh was engaged
in the same business being the first to engage in the grain and lumber business in this
place for many years. He passed to the Great Beyond Sep 14, 1962.
Mrs Himebaugh is the mother of six children, three of whom are living. They are Mrs Fred
Maryott, O Himebaugh of our vicinity and Chas Himebaugh of Yakima Wash.
It has been 56 years since Mrs Himebaugh came to our vicinity and about 43 since moving
She has seen many great changes in our village and people during all these years.
