I am searching for information on my father, Ambrose Kearns, who
enlisted in the National Guard in Fremont, Nebraska in March, 1917,

My name is Jack Miller. Both of my great grandfathers owned farms North and East of Page. My grand parents. Lowell and Edith Miller ran a restaurant in Page for about eight years after the First World War.
My great grandfather Nis Miller owned a large farm one mile north and two miles East of Page, I understand it still exists. Another mile and a half East is the location of my other great grandfather Walter Snyder's farm. During the fifties I visited Page with my parents, at that time we had relatives still living there. I look forward to using your resources to further my study of the people and the history of Page and would appreciate any help you might be able to provide.
