BROTHERTON, HALL posted by Janice Connell & Hans Brinker on Friday, October 3, 2003

We are looking for a Chloe Brotherton b. @ 1888 in Nebraska. Looking also for a Claude J Hall born @1885 possibly in Merna, Custer County. They are Hans' maternal great-grandparents. The 1920 census has them as a family in Field Precinct of Scotts Bluff County with three children: Virginia age 8, Margaret age 4, James age 4. In 1930 they have two more children, Pauline age 9 and Robert**age5 in Norfolk, Madison County. Family oral tradition has Claude born in Merna and marrying Chloe L. Brotherton @1908 but we don't know where.

DEEMS, DOUGLAS, MCCREARY posted by Ellen on Wednesday, October 8, 2003

Looking for information on the Albert Deems family. Albert and family was found on the 1885 state census and the 1880 federal census for Delight Township, Custer County, Nebraska. H. Mark Deems {Alberts son} married a McCleary and they lived in Delight Township. Would love to exchange information with someone from these families.

HAMMOND, HANNEL, SCHWARTZ posted by Della Hammond on Saturday, October 11, 2003

Looking for George and Rachel (Schwartz) Hammond In the Broken Bow Area or Mason City area. Their son George W Hammond married Mary Margaret Hannel I know they lived in Indiana before moving to Nebraska, but where did they live before Indiana????? I can't seem to find out anything before Indiana. Any help would be great Della Hammond

DRAPER, KLINGLER, OWEN, PAROLEK posted by Sandra on Monday, October 20, 2003

In the late 1800's and early 1900's our Owen family seemed to have several photographs taken by Edgar Draper Studios in Loup City, Nebraska. Since they lived in Sargent, Custer County, it seems strange that they would travel so far to have their photos taken. It also seems odd that they "suddenly" started having photos taken. I don't know if this was due to an improving financial situation for the family, increased interest in having their pictures taken since the children were reaching their late teens and early 20's, or if there was a connection between the Owen family and Edgar Draper's family. One of the Owen daughters (daughter of Leonard and Mary Klingler Owen), May, married George Jack Draper, s/o William and Fannie (Parolek?) Draper who also lived in Custer County. Can anyone tell me anything about Edgar Draper's family and whether there was a connection to George Draper? Later, Edgar Draper worked in Central City, Nebraska. Is it possible that Edgar Draper traveled around at certain times of the year and took photographs in neighboring towns?
