Andrew Gustaf Dahlberg, 1862-1941
Gus Dahlberg Instantly Killed in Accident Monday – Funeral services will be held this afternoon at 2 o’clock from the Fairdale Methodist church – The life of one of the community’s most respected and beloved citizens was snuffed out in a terrible accident at Grand Island Monday evening about 5 o’clock when Gus Dahlberg was struck by some railroad cars and killed instantly. The accident happened near the Grand Island Livestock Commission company yards. After being struck Mr. Dahlberg’s body was dragged about 80 feet and mutilated as the cars rolled across and beyond the north side of Fourth street. The conductor, F.G. Bryan, who was riding the first car of the string which were being switched saw Mr. Dahlberg just at the moment as he stepped in the way of the cars and made an attempt to push him in the clear but was unable to do so. Mr. Dahlberg had made the trip to Grand Island in company with Mr. and Mrs. Oscar Oakeson and Mr. and Mrs. Henry Sonderup. They were waiting for him in their car after he had gone over to a lunch room presumably to buy some ice cream bars. Hall county attorney, L. A. Holmes and Sheriff Dan Sanders were notified and they visited the scene.

His steady, even temper and unfailing integrity won for him a host of friends. Of him it can truly be said: “To know him was to be his friend.” CARD OF THANKS – Neighbors and friends were very gracious to us during the sad hours following the tragic death of our beloved husband and father. The many kind services extended and the beautiful floral tributes have been a great source of comfort to us during this trying hour. Please accept our sincere thanks. Mrs. A. G. Dahlberg and family.

Frank G. Daudt 1851-1927
FRANK DAUDT CALLED BY DEATH TUESDAY MORNING Although the end had been momentarily expected for the past several days, the announcement of the death of Mr. Frank G. Daudt, which occurred at his home at about 2 a.m. Tuesday, caused a pang of sincere regret to be felt by his many friends. Death followed a long lingering illness, during all which time he bore his sufferings with unusual fortitude and patience. Mr. Frank G. Daudt was born on June 4, 1851, in Goerschnitz, Saxony, Germany. On June 3, 1873 he was united in marriage to Minnie Dhooss in Dhorsfield, Saxony. This union was blessed with six children, three have preceded their father in death. The family came to this country in 1880 and located at Grand Island, Nebraska. Three years later they moved to Greeley County, where they resided on a farm until 1905, from which time on they made Scotia their home. To Mr. and Mrs. Daudt it was given as it is given to but few – to celebrate their fiftieth wedding anniversary. This took place three years ago last June. At this time there was a family reunion and they received many congratulations from friends and fellow citizens. Those left to mourn his departure are his wife, three daughters, Mrs. Lena Meidlinger , of Finlayson Minnesota, Mrs. Anna Grant, of Denver, Colorado, and Mrs. Clara Schuessler, of Grand Island, Nebraska. Also, twenty-four grandchildren and fifteen great grandchildren. Mr. F. Daudt was a communicant member of Zion Lutheran Church. He was a firm believer in Christ as his personal Savior and Redeemer.

Services will be held from the residence at 1:45 and at 2:00 from the Lutheran Church. Rev. W. L. Ernstmeyer will officiate.

Walter Daudt, 1894-1924
Obituary - Walter Daudt was born at Elsterberg, Saxony, November 19, 1894. Already in his infancy he was baptized and made a child of God thru the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Ghost. In May, 1902 he with the Daudt family, left Europe and came to Greeley Co., Nebraska, where they have made their home ever since. In the year 1913 Walter Daudt was confirmed at the Scotia Lutheran Church by Rev. Hellwege, thereby renewing his baptismal covenant, and promising to remain true to the Triune God and the Lutheran Church. When some years ago the call came for men to serve in the terrible devastating World War, Walter Daudt, in June 28, 1917, was one of the thousands of our boys who entered the service of his country. He was assigned to the Transportation and Medical Corps of the Army in which capacity he served his country to the best of his powers until his honorable discharge on Nov. 30, 1918. Not very long after his discharge he developed Tuberculosis and in Oct. 1922 entered the Weeks Hospital at Ord for medical treatment. Undergoing several serious operations, and not progressing as favorably as was wished for, he was transferred to his home on Oct. 8, 1923. Remaining there for three weeks, and it becoming apparent that his conditions demanded better medical treatment than was possible under the conditions at home, he was transferred to the U.S. Veteran's Hospital at Kansas City Missouri, where it was thought a cure might possibly be affected. Thinking a change of climate would be beneficial, he was on March 8, 1924 transferred to the U.S. Veteran's Hospital at New Haven, Conn., but it soon became apparent to medical officers that no hopes could be held out for his recovery. And finally, after intense sufferings, extended over a course of almost two years, the Lord graciously delivered him from his bed of pain and took him to Himself in heaven – as we firmly hope – on April 9, of this year. He reached the age of 29 years, 5 months, and 21 days. He leaves to mourn his early departure: his mother, four brothers, one sister and numerous friends among the Lutheran church and among the soldiers of the U.S. Army. May the death of Walter Daudt teach us all that important lesson that it is appointed unto men once to die, and after that the judgment. - CARD OF THANKS In this public manner we desire to express our thanks to the many kind friends and neighbors who so willingly assisted us during our sad hour. Especially we wish to thank the American Legion, the Walther League, the American Legion Auxiliary and the Horace Kensington for their beautiful floral offerings, and the band and the American Legion for the splendid service rendered. Mrs. Marie Daudt and Family.

Rebecca Ann Debord, 1882-1916
Obituary – Rebecca Ann Debord was born near Millersberg, Mercer County, Illinois, on March 23rd, 1882. Died at Wolbach, Nebraska, on the 4th day of June 1916. In September after her birth, her parents came to Greeley county, settling near Wolbach, removing later, when Rebecca was 11 years old, to St. Paul. When she was grown she taught school in Howard county for about 4 years. At the age of twelve she was converted and united with the Free Methodist church of which she ever remained a faithful and a zealous member. She was licensed by the church of her choice as a preacher, and acted in the capacity of an evangelist among them for a number of years. Christ was a real presence in life, and she rejoiced in him as when one walks with a friend. The sickness that occasioned her death came upon her about two years ago, and during all that time with much weakness and much of the time with great suffering, she patiently endured as one who seeth him who is invisible, and waits upon His will. During the last days of her waiting, her chief desire was to her the songs of Zion, with which she had long been familiar. After many weary days of patient waiting, the gate to the city of God was opened and the Savior for whom she had longed sent the angles (sic) to convey her home on Monday at about 1 o’clock. While our hearts ache for those who love her and have lost her for a while, yet for her we can but rejoice that in triumph she has reached the end of the way for a while her sun went down at mid day, we are assured that it has risen for an endless day in a fairer chime than this. There are left to mourn their loss, four brothers, George Thomas, John Andrew, James Hiram, Elisha Lee, and their sisters Sarah Elizabeth Kinney, Mary Jane Hagadorn and Martha Frances Hiatt, besides a half brother, Theopalis Garrett Caudle and a half sister Eliza Ellen Chalfant. CARD OF THANKS – We wish to express our heartfelt thanks to the many kind friends and neighbors who so willfully assisted us during the sickness and death of our beloved sister, and also for the beautiful offering of flowers. George Thomas Debord, John Andrew Debord, James Hiram Debord, Elisha Lee Debord, Sarah Elizabeth Kinney, Mary Jane Haggadorn, Martha Frances Hiatt.

Get Letter From A Nurse On Okinawa – The following letter was recently received by Mr. and Mrs. E. L. DeBord from Lt. Cynthia Kitch, army nurse on Okinawa, concerning the death of Sgt. Walter DeBord, killed in action in May on Okinawa: “Mr. Kitch and I extend deepest sympathy to you in this great hour of sorrow in the loss of your son, Walter C. What a price you have paid for this victory which is ours and which will soon be complete. Walter made the supreme sacrifice by giving his life that you, Marylee and all that follow, may live in freedom and peace. It is the thing he wanted you all to have. He died without suffering, it was instantaneous. He died as a brave soldier should—with his boots on. May God rest his soul in heaven. I made a beautiful spray of long needle palm fronds and intertwined with a dozen big red hibiscus and went to the 7th Division cemetery yesterday. There I knelt in silent prayer and placed your flowers at the head stone cross for him. I took pictures of his grave, close up shots of his cross with his name on it and his dog tag. I took three snaps so I would be sure of a good one. I am forbidden to mail these to you now, but you shall have them as soon as I am able to get them thru to you. It is for my own security that I am forbidden to forward same to you at the present time. The cemetery is clean and pretty. Each grave has its own area and it is well kept. There are attendants there all the time. He was put away in good style. The army takes care of its own. There is a lovely altar under shelter at the entrance with a beautiful cross atop it. There is a white picket fence around the whole area and Old Glory waves over them all. It would possibly have been better for you to have his body at home in your family lot, yet he lies with friends and buddies; those he shared joys and hardships with and would not forsake them in life so don’t wish him to forsake them in death. I wish there was more I could do for you, this seems like such a little bit that I have done, but believe me, I am doing my best out here, just behind the lines, working in the operating room, trying my best to send another mother’s boy home alive. I regret we can’t send them all home that way. May God bring you comfort in this hour. Look to Him for guidance and he will bring you peace. God bless you both.”

Receive Message Concerning Son – Mr. and Mrs. Vern G. Dollarhide received a letter Sunday from 1st Lt. C. P. Woelfer, commanding officer, concerning their son, Pfc. Arnold Dollarhide, who was killed in action December 26. The letter: “Your letter requesting information regarding circumstances surrounding the death of your son, Arnold, has reached me. Officially, War Department regulations do not permit details for many reasons. However, as he was a courageous, willing young soldier, I feel I must answer your request in some manner. The incident surrounding his becoming a casualty occurred while this organization was fighting the heavy attacks the enemy made on the 7th Army in Alsace. As you say, he was the mail orderly, and he was very popular in his work. However, enemy artillery fire does not pick its victims and when an artillery shell struck a barn Arnold was in we suffered several casualties. He suffered not. Many fine men were lost that night, but the enemy was thrown back. In behalf of Company ‘K’ I extend sympathy.”

J. E. DOLLARHIDE EXPIRES SUDDENLY – Apoplexy Claims Pioneer Resident of Wolbach – A pall passed over the large crowd in attendance at the celebration last Thursday evening when the word went the rounds that J. E. Dollarhide had suddenly expired while walking on the street near his home. As near as we can glean the fact, Mr. Dollarhide had gone home and eaten his supper and was on his way back up town when stricken. During the day he had played the bass drum with the band, the band’s last concert before supper being about 5 o’clock, after which Mr. Dollarhide went to his home and had eaten his supper with the rest of the household. The band was again to appear at 7, and he had started to return up town to again take his place with the band boys. He had just about reached the corner, perhaps 50 yards from his home when he was stricken. We are informed that Chris Berney, Mrs. Bundy and John Lind saw him fall and rushed to his side, but he was beyond help. Dr. Adams was immediately called and pronounced his sudden death as being caused by apoplexy. Mr. Dollarhide was a very good friend of the writer, was a frequent caller at this office and no words we can say can possibly tell the high esteem in which we held him. No matter where we met him we met the same smile, the same pleasant words and the same friend. – John Ellsworth Dollarhide was born at Fairport, Iowa May 5, 1875, and died at Wolbach, Nebraska, October 4, 1923, aged 48 years, 4 months and 29 days.

Mrs. Jerry Donovan, 1921
MRS. DONAVAN DIES OF INJURIES – Ford Sedan Plunges Over Bank Tuesday Night With Fatal Results to Aged Lady. – A fatal accident occurred on the road between Wolbach and Greeley Tuesday evening, when one lady lost her life and three others were quite badly injured when the auto in which they were riding went over a bank at the side of the road. As near as we have been able to learn the particulars Mr. and Mrs. Jerry Donovan, who reside about seven miles north of Greeley, their daughter Nora and Joe McGuire, also of Greeley, were on their way home from a trip to Central City. When coming to the corner at the Ralph Bussell home for some reason the driver of the car, Mr. Donovan, failed to make the turn and the car ran over the bank of the canyon a distance of some ten feet. All of the occupants, it seems were thrown clear of the car except Mrs. Donovan, aged about 65 or 70, she being caught under the wreckage, rendered unconscious and badly injured. Mr. Bussell heard the crash when the ford sedan went over the bank and rushed to the scene. It was not long until the Caudle boys came along and the injured ones were taken to the Bussell home and Drs. Holm and Adams of Wolbach called and they in turn called Dr. Hynes, the family doctor of Greeley. Examination found that Mrs. Donovan had a broken right thigh, injuries about the head and that she had also received internal injuries. Mr. Donovan received a broken rib and his head and hands were badly injured, no doubt by the broken glass of the car. The daughter had received a broken right arm and many bruises. Mr. McGuire escaped with less serious injuries. The party was hastened by auto to the hospital at Grand Island, where Mrs. Donovan passed away at 1 o’clock Wednesday morning without regaining consciousness. Mr. Donovan is reported in a very serious condition and may not survive. The top of the Ford sedan is a total wreck and it is a great wonder that all of the occupants were not killed outright.

Roy Duff, ca.1921-1923
FALLS IN WATER HOLE AND IS DROWNED –Sargent Mother Finds Lifeless Body of Her Baby – Sargent Leader: This (Friday) afternoon the two year old son of Mr. and Mrs. Ray Duff drowned in a water hole about two hundred yards south of their home which is two miles and a half east of Sargent. The particulars given us are that Mr. Duff was coming to town and bringing with him two of the little girls to see the doctor. A third little girl was crying because she couldn’t go along and the mother took her into the house to soothe her. As she as doing this, two year old Roy slipped away, going down the road to follow his father’s auto most likely. When he came to the water hole near the road he probably slipped and fell head foremost into it and strangled at once. The mother missed the little fellow in a short time and started down the road to hunt him. When she reached the water hole she found the dog barking excitedly. She waded in but could not get any trace of the child. Then she went out to the gate nearly a half mile from the house. Finding no sight of the child she started to return home and when she reached the water hole there was the body floating on the water. She snatched the body from the water and did all she could to resuscitate her child but to no avail. Taking up the other two children she walked to the home of Reed Dennison a mile and a half away to phone for Dr. Taylor who tells us that he hurried but it was too late to revive the child. He says he feels confident that the child was beyond help when the mother found it floating. The water hole is seven or eight feet wide, about seventy-five feet long and about knee deep.
