I am looking for any and all info on my Milliken family in Nebraska.  My GGrandfather, James Milliken, was the sheriff of
 Dodge Co.  His wife, Josephine O'Neal, cooked for the prisoners James arrested.  His son James Dale Millken owned the
 Fremont National Bank.  There is a Milliken Park in Fremont, dedicated to him.  Also a Milliken school.  My uncle Thomas still  resides there in Fremont.  I'm very interested in David Milliken, who "got off the boat" from Ireland in 1867.  He was born 12  Nov 1826 in Londonderry Ireland.  Also connected too O'Neal, Landis, Cusack and Kastle. Please e-mail me with any info and as  I have many documents, I can help someone else out!

In your Dodge Co. Business list for 1890-1891, you show Thomas Cronland as Marshal of North Bend. He is a lost ancestor of mine. Since he was a Town Marshal, I was wondering if a photo was ever made of him? Like in a newspaper, town record? He was involved in a gunfight in 1895. I obtained a copy of the shooting from the North Bend Library.
Thanks in advance for any info.

Last summer I made a trip to Dodge, NE looking for the grave of my great grandfather, John Bauer.  I visited several cemeteries, but was unable to locate his grave.  I have recently learned (from your fine web site) that he is in St. Joseph's Cemetery south of Dodge.  I am certain that I visited St. Joseph's Cemetery last summer, but I apparently overlooked his marker.  I want to make another trip to Dodge this coming summer to visit his grave.  Since I live in Reston, Virginia, I want to confirm that his grave is in St. Joseph's before I undertake another trip. Can you give me the e-mail address of some kind person in Dodge who would consider driving out to St. Joseph's cemetery and confirming that his grave is there?
 Thank you.

I am looking for any information on the Hasebroock family that immigrated to the United States from Germany and settled in Dodge Co, Nebraska.   My great grandfather Henry Hasebroock was born in a dug out in Dodge Co. by Crowell, Nebraska (the Dead Timber area) and 10 years ago there was a report to my grandfather that someone had found the dug out.  This person who discovered the dug out has died and we are now trying to locate the dug out, which has members of my family burried outside of it. If anyone could help me on any of this needed information I would be greatful.

I am looking for information on four  families: Frahms, Farnsworths, Palmers and Bahms of Dodge county.  Emma Bahm was
born in Malmo, Nebraska - Saunders County, NE - 31 May 1893 and married Harvey Frahm.  Ida Bahm married Bill Palmer & were raising a family in the 1930's.

My grandfather's family (Frederick [Fritz] Christian Bahm and Eva Christine Zeller) were married in Fremont in 1877, lived in Wahoo, died in Malmo, buried in Wahoo in Union cemetery. They had a large family who spread out to other towns and
counties.  My grandfather, Gustaf Bahm b. Jan. 28,1891,  said they attended the Lutheran church.

My grandmother, Elizabeth Joe Hancock b. Nov. 23, 1890,  was born in Papillion, Sarpy county, lived in Colon, Saunders
County.  I have been searching for birth certificates, deeds, land grants, naturalization papers, letter of intent, newpaper articles etc. My great grandfather was a printer (Morris H. Hancock, wife: Laura Bell Clegg)  who moved around a bit, but kept his land in Colon--still in the family today. I have been hoping that perhaps there would be some newpaper articles about them in old newspapers.  They were very active in the Presbyterian church (1890-1920) and are buried there.

Thank you for any help you can give me.

I am interested in information of Arthur Gibson. Born 25 July 1844 died 12 Aug 1902  Ridge Cemetery Sergeant 3rd. Colorado Cavary  Aug 15,1864-Dec 28,1864. Owned a bookstore in Fremont at 6th & F street, may also be 106 W 6th. I am researching an Indian battle he was in.  It was in eastern Colorado on Nov 29th 1864.  I have been told he took white women scalps from one of the teepees.  His daughter told stories that they were kept in a safe in the back of the bookstore and she was always scared to go near the safe.  It sounds as if it was a walk-in safe.  Can anyone document anything about this for me?
