Welcome! I am
the new administrator of this portion of the USGenWeb project
and you are viewing the new site design for Frontier County,
Nebraska. This is a large site and it's going to take me a
while to get it all converted to this new format. Please be
patient as I incorporate each page to the new vision. If you
discover a broken link it could be that I am currently working
that page. Please return in a couple days to see if it's
corrected. If not, you're invited to send
me an email to see what's up.
Frontier County was founded in January 1872 in an Indian tepee near the mouth of Clifford Canyon. When it came time to name the new county, the fact that it was located in what was referred to at that time as part of the Nebraska frontier led organizers to name it as such. According to history there was no pen, ink or pencil with which the agreement could be drawn up and signed, so a mixture of charcoal and water was made and each man signed his name with a pointed stick dipped in the thick black substance. The document was approved by the legislature in 1873.
I do not live in Nebraska and am
unable to help you with local research.
