Seeking exact birthplace in Denmark of my grandfather, James P HANSEN,
born August 1853, I believe in Copenhagen but need the name of the
parish. His father's name was Hans J Jorgensen. According to
the 1900 and 1910 census, he was a constable in Fremont and a bailiff at
the courthouse. Thank you. I currently have on loan from the LDS Library
the 1900 Dodge County Federal Census and will be happy to do lookups.
This will only be on loan from June, July and August 2001.

I find a Henry Schnose listed in the Nebraska State Gazeteer as a farmer
in Dodge County in 1890-1891. I have contacted the Mid-Continent
Library in Independence, MO, seeking a census record, but they
have no listing for him. Can you give me any information as to how
I can follow up and find more information about this person? My great
grandfather, Ferdinand Schnose, homesteaded in Dakota Territory
in the 1870 time frame, near the present town of Alcestor, SD.
Since the Schnose name is not very common, I am quite certain Henry
Schnose would be a relative, but I have not been able to identify
him. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Are there members of your genealogy group who can do research for me
in Hooper, and through the Sentinal newspaper in Hooper? I
would like to find any record of the birth of Angeline Cleveland there
on May 15, 1893. Her parents were Sylvester Jerome Cleveland and
Sarah Patterson. She had older brothers William Carey and John Henry. They
may have been Methodist so if there is no county record of birth or mention
of the family in the Sentinal, perhaps there would be a record in a local
Methodist church. Please advise of research fees and i can remit those
in advance if need
be. Thank you for your help! Donna Madrid 4702 Alhambra

Elisha Oscar Crosby settled in Fremont, Nebraska circa 1869.
His son Edward C. (or O.) Crosby was born in Nebraska on 25 Feb., 1875.
Elisha seems to have been a promenent lawyer in Fremont while there.
He owned $10K in real estate. He built Shed's Opera House and chaired
the first meeting regarding the establishment of the Elkhorn Valley branch
of the Souix City and Pacific Railroad. He had a domestic servant
named William Carol or Carrow (the 1870 census is a little murky on this
one) with wife Bertha. I am searching for any further information
on his activities in Fremont including land records (though I should be
able to find those through the LDS), birth record or newspaper notice of
the birth of Edward on 25 Feb. 1875, possible death record for his wife,
Frances, court records, evidence of possible divorce or remarriage of Frances,
and any information concerning William and Bertha Carol(?) to clarify his
name and activities.

Ruby J. Clark - I just inherited an old photo album that belonged to
E.C. and Olive Forney) Frease, who moved from Dodge Co. NE to Cashmere,
Chelan Co. WA in about 1900. It has a number of mostly unidentified photos
of people who must have been family and friends. However, one photo is
identified as, "Ruby J. Clark - Age 3 mo 27 days - Born July 13 1901."
The frame says, "C.V.Brokenicky - Leading Photog'r - Dodge, Neb."
I am wondering who Ruby Clark was, and what relationship she had to
the Long, Frease and Forney families. These families came to Dodge from
Walnut, Bureau Co., IL.

Am looking for some help or information about my husbands
great granduncle, who was a member of the J.C. Cleland Hose Co. He
was born in 1853 in Hjorring, Denmark, and in 1886 was killed in a fire
in Fremont. I have a lovely resolution that was given to his family.
Does Fremont have access to old newspapers, and where would I go to look
at them? I am hoping
to find an account of the fire in the paper. I only have a date
of 1886. Would the Fire Dept have old records? Any info
or direction you could send me would be very appreciated. I would
be happy to share this document with any one that might be interested.
My husband's uncle's name was Swen Peterson. He was born in Denmark
Jan. 9, 1853 and died in Fremont, Ne. Jan 9, 1886 at 33 years of age.
His family received a resolution stating his "sterling qualities
" and value to the J.C. Cleland Hose Co. after his death. I don't
know if his death was in the line of duty. There is no date on the
paper, but from family records his death is listed as Jan.9, 1886.
He was not married, as far as I know. His brother was Andrew Peter
Peterson, my husband's grandfather. [ My e-mail addr ess refers
to my mustard pot collection.]

My name is Joseph Renter (b. Kraft), and I'm trying to build my family
tree. Any help that you could give me would be greatly appreciated. n particular,
I'm trying to locate information about Frank Madurajski, who farmed near
Dodge, and is buried at St. Wenceslaus in Howells, and Anna Madurajski
(b. Frei) who died in 1968. I seem to have hit walls trying to
go farther back than these two (my great-grandfather, and my grandmother).
According to one source, Anna Frei's parents were Jiri and Marketa Frei,
but my mom seems to recall it was George and Mary Frei (I've found that
there are matching tombstones in a cemetary in Dodge with the names Jiri
and George, as well as Marketa and Margaret).
Thank you, in advance, for any assistance that you can provide, or
any directions that you can point me in.
