S.S. Cisney Children   This photo is from the Glass Plate Negative collection at the Cedar County Museum. It was identified as children of S.S. Cisney. There were three generations of S.S. Cisneys which lived in Nebraska. My best guess would be that these are the two oldest children of Stephen and Marjory Cisney. I would love it if someone could confirm my guess that these children are Lumen Earl Cisney and Odessa Cisney or let me know who they are. Submitted by Jackie Hensley

John Hellmann Foot Stone, Aten Cemetery  Foot stone on the east side of the drive in the Aten Cemetery. Aten is named after this bachelor farmer. He was Aten's first postmaster. Previously (1876 or so) he was elected to the Nebraska State Legislature. The head stone family names are Aten, Saunders and Bryant. I think one of the ladies buried in the plot is John Aten's sister?  Submitted by Rod Nohr

Wedding Photo of Manuel Klanderud & Arna Haugh (Haug)  Married December 28, 1904 in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Submitted by Connie R. Loftus

Wedding Photo of Mary Klanderud & Charlie Foulk  Mary Klanderud and Charlie Foulk wedding photo, married about 1909. Mary was daughter of Peder (Pete) Klanderud and Karoline Hansen. Mary was born sometime before June 28, 1889, per school records from Paragon School northeast of Hartington, NE, where the family lived for a time. There is no information on Charlie Foulk. She died in childbirth along with an infant son. Records from Our Saviors Lutheran Church, Obert, Cedar Co., NE, after it was first organized state that: "The first funeral was held for Mary Klanderud Foulk and her infant son in 1911." The Church was built first 3 miles west and 1/2 mile south of the present Village of Obert. Then moved to the village of Obert in 1914. There was an obit in the news paper that stated that Mary was survived by an infant. This is most probably in error, also probably in error is the name of the Cemetery where Mary was buried.(See obit this site) Submitted by Connie R. Loftus

John R. Robinson Family & Residence??
I believe this may be the John R. Robinson Family. John came to the Coleridge area working on the railroad from St. Joseph MO to Yankton SD about 1885. This photo came from descendants of a sister of John. The ages & gender of the children are close to what the John Robinson family should be. The second adult male is a mystery. Same photographer as the "Coleridge Street Scene" under Places & Towns. Submitted by Quentin Robinson

Otis & Charles Robinson
These two young men are brothers Otis and Charles Robinson who lived for a time in the Coleridge and Hartington area. Part of the time they lived with their uncle John R. Robinson, later with their mother and stepfather Hattie (Harriet) & George E. Henry. The Henrys were in Dakota County in the 1900 Census and later moved into Tripp County, SD. Photo date circa 1890 based on apparent ages of boys in photo. Submitted by Quentin Robinson
