I live in Lincoln (Lancaster Co., Ne)...first county west of Cass County. I am a former resident of Plattsmouth and my parents and brother are buried in Oak cemetery in Plattsmouth.
I have been doing genealogy lookups for about three years using the vast facilities of the Nebraska State Historical Society and the resources of the Prodigy Genealogy Bulletin Board.
For the sources that are in the Nebraska State Library, go directly there.
Realizing that this is neither a history nor geography class some background must be given. When Cass County became open for settlement there was a rush to obtain the very good land for which Cass county is noted. This was not done without a certain amount of speculation resulting in problems with identifying areas. I have attempted to find a concrete listing of all the towns in Cass County, but each time I find a list there are town names added and other town names removed. If you come across a town name that you want reseached, please include it in your query.
Hello, my name is David Gochenour, I have been researching in the Cass County area for 3 years. I have traced some of my family back to the earliest days of Cass County.
I love genealogy, and would like to help anyone who needs it, whether it be through information on the website, or directing you to the information you need.
