ARNOLD, DICKSON, PERRIMAN, SMITH posted by Patti Horton on Tuesday, October 22, 1996

I am searching for any information pertaining to my grandparents and/or their families: Cletis Elton ARNOLD b. 22 March 1906 in Sutherland, NE in 1929 m. Anna Mildred DICKSON b. 4 March 1904 resided most of their married life and are buried in Lagrange Wyoming. Cletis's parents: f.(unknown ARNOLD) m.(unknown SMITH?) Cletis's siblings: Dean, Leonard, Emmett, Wilda, (1 unknown?) Anna's parents: f. Henry Speed DICKSON m. Mina PERRIMAN Anna's siblings: Lial, Fern, Lucille, Ruth, Herman. I am unsure whether Anna Dickson is from Custer Co. or even from NE, but it seems likely. It is rumored in our family that Arnold and Cozad, NE are named after my Arnold branch, so I would welcome any evidence to support this or help me in any way. A couple of nice people, John Davis and Pam Reitsch are trying to find out what they can, but I'd certainly be pleased if anyone else has ANYTHING to contribute. Thanks,

BEAL, RUSSOM, WEIBUSCH, WILLIAMS posted by Harold Wiebusch on Sunday, November 10, 1996

I grew up in Broken Bow, Nebraska and am interested in tracing my genealogy. I have the family history of the BEAL side of the family but know very little about the WEIBUSCH, RUSSOM and WILLIAMS sides of the family. My grandfather, Ralph Wiebusch was born in the 1880 at Fountain Bluffs, Ill. and have reason to believe his father came from Germany in the 1840. My grandmother Helen Wiebusch's maiden name was Williams and have been told the line go back to Roger Williams of Rhode Island. My grandmother on my mother's side of the family maiden name is Russom. I have been told that this family came from the South but that's all I know. I would appreciate any info that will lead me back through my family history.
