All photos came from
albums owned by my grandmother, Mary Christine Hamlow, wife of
Albert P. Anderson of Waverly, Lancaster county, Nebraska. Her
parents, Swedish immigrants Andrew and Christine Hamlow, purchased
railroad land near Waverly on the Cass County line in 1878. The
family was Lutheran.
Mary was a Nebraska Wesleyan graduate and a schoolteacher in the
area before her marriage in 1900. Albert and his cousin August
Brandeen once owned the general store in Waverly. Most of the
family are buried in the Rosehill Cemetery in Waverly.
The title assigned to each photo is exactly as written on the
photo. The time frame appears to be about 1895 to 1910. I have no
additional information on any of these persons; they were not
related to the Hamlow's, to my knowledge.
I am willing to send the originals to family members.

I recently purchased a
document - that people used to frame & hang on their
wall - well I would like to contribute the information to your
NEGenWeb project. Here's what it reads:
This Certifies That Charles F. Cutler of Hastings, Nebr. and Mary
Margaret Joyce of Hastings, Nebr. were united in Holy Matrimony
According to the Rites of the Holy Roman Catholic Church and the
Laws of the State of Nebraska at St. Cecilia's Church, Hastings
Nebr. on the 20th day of January in the Year of Our Lord 1922.

What therefore God hath joined together let no man put asunder.
I would be glad to
scan & send to anyone interested in seeing it. If the family
who it belongs to should show up - refer them to me - I will part
with it so they can have it as an heirloom. It is not in the
greatest shape...but it is still a neat item that could be framed
nicely. It measures 11.25 x 17 inches & has been rolled into a
tube - thereby causing serious wrinkling, and has a tear at the
top in the center about 2.5" long - but does not detract from
the beauty of the piece.

photos with direct Nebraska connections, as two sets of
grandparents, some great-grandparents and many great-uncles, aunts
and cousins settled in the state, mainly in Fillmore and York
