Letter from the Johnson County Coordinator

A search will occur, undertaken by myself, to answer your queries and allow you to expand your family research. I will use the resources of the Nebraska State Historical Library located on the campus of the University of Nebraska.

These queries will remain on the home page an undetermined time.

I ask that you limit your queries to Johnson County. Each time you mention a person by name please put that name in CAPITAL LETTERS.

Please avoid the use of pronouns such as he, she, they; etc. and double check the accuracy of any dates mentioned.

This is a public forum. Hopefully, we will find each query interesting. I encourage to write back and forth among yourselves and get acquainted.

We have a common interest in mind..each and every one of us. Working together we will all expand our knowledge of Johnson county...the place and its people.

Please put your E-Mail address on the bottom of your query.

My great grandfather, Russell William Wever (he dropped the A) moved into Johnson county after the Civil War. Russell was a Civil War veteran. He was a farmer and at one time was the Postmaster at Elk Creek, NE. He is buried in the Mt. Hope cemetery. His son, William, was my grandfather. The Wever name was in Johnson county from about 1867 till abt. 1930.
