20 and 23, Doctor Hoehen was able to call on the others. Mr. Haney was able to get to town on March 20. He walked west of the house, and in some places, jumped from one cake of ice to another. He walked to John Haney's farm, and from there, they were able to drive a team to Columbus. On the way to his brother's place, he met Jake Louis and his son, Charles, then a boy of about fourteen, who were out viewing the flood.

When he arrived in Columbus, James bought a coffin and a little wreath of wax flowers for Margaret, from Henry Gass, Sr., who was the undertaker at that time. John Haney accompanied him as far as they could drive on the way home, and then James walked, the rest of the way, carrying the little coffin on his shoulder.

On March 21, Dan Condon, who lived north of Richland, drove down as far as Lost Creek in an effort to find out how his sister, Mrs. Jerry Donnelley, had fared in the flood. At the same time, Jake Maple, Jr., who was staying at Haney's, attempted to get to Richland from the south. The foot bridge where they used to cross was washed away and Jake swam across Lost Creek and there met Mr. Condon. Dan then drove back to Richland, and procured a boat and also sent word to Schuyler for a doctor to come. He then bought a sack of flour and other groceries, drove south as far as Lost Creek, then loaded the provisions into the boat, and he and Jake rowed across the water. They then had to walk a distance of two miles, and Dan carried a fifty-pound sack of flour on his back. They came in northeast of the Haney house. Dan then went back to Richland and met the doctor, who came up on the train from Schuyler, and brought him across in the boat, and together they walked the rest of the distance to the house.

March 26, Michael, twelve years old, died of diphtheria. March 27, Mary Ann (Mazie), age ten years, died. The three children were buried when the flood subsided. All the roads had been washed out, and it was necessary to find solid ground where they could drive a team. They rode out on horseback and located a place to drive. The next day, they proceeded with the funeral. The procession was led by boys on horseback. Henry Gass' hearse was a long spring wagon. The others rode in farm wagons and drove across the country to St. Joseph's Cemetery, near Platte Center.
