I am seeking information about N.P. TULEN, who collected plants in Hooker County ca. 1893. Several museums around the country (including the University of North Carolina Herbarium, my institution), have botanical specimens collected by TULEN. We seek any information about him -- first name, birth, death, occupation. He seemed to collect many grasses.

Rev. Michael Davis September 12, 2004
Looking for death dates for Stanley A. "Stack" MEIDELL and his spouse Gladys (DAVIS) MEIDELL.  I know that she died in May of 1981.  Obituary states that her funeral was held on 13 May 1981 at United Methodist Church in Mullen and that she was survived by her husband (Stack).  I assume they are buried in Mullen Cemetery, but do not know this to be a fact.  Would like to obtain obituary for "Stack" and dates of death for each.  Finally, if anyone is available that can remember the years they lived in Mullen, would love to hear stories.  Stack and Gladys had two children.  A son, Richard "Dick" and daughter Charleen.  The last I knew they were both still living.

Looking for information regarding Dr. WALKER Day- 05 April 1956.  Dr. David D. WALKER practiced for 51 years in Mullen.  A letter found in my fathers lock box was sent to my grandfather David Daniel LOHNER.  The letter was an invitation sent out to ALL the babies Dr. WALKER delivered.  A questionaire was included (filled out and returned I assume) to either Mrs John ISOM or Ruth BARNEBY.  They were compiling a book for Dr. WALKER's 51st anniversay of practice.  Does anyone know of this potential treasure trove of information?
The ensuing sequence of letters indicated my grandfather David Daniel LOHNER did not have a birth certificate.  Efforts to obtain a delayed registration of birth landed on the desk of Hooker County Judge, Haskle D. Boyer.
Remembering my g-grandfather Fred LOHNER, the Honorable Judge Boyer took the task to hand along with John BARNEBY, who also remembered my g-grandfather Fred LOHNER.
The result was the issuance of a delayed birth certificate providing the following info:
Fred J. LOHNER b. 1882? Germany
Sarah Augusta HOLLAND b. 27 Feb 1887 Iowa
David Daniel LOHNER b. 08 Sep 1907 Mullen, Hooker, NE
Still looking for any info on Fred LOHNER and now, Sarah HOLLAND as well.  Hoping this strange tidbit will help!


Derek Lohner November 02, 2002
Researching information on Fred LOHNER, born ABT 1872 in Germany.  Appears in Mullen precinct of 1910 (with three in household, un-named) and 1920 census (with only himself in household).  The name Fred may be a derivative of Alfred or Friedrich.  Fred is not shown in Hooker County census for 1900 or 1930.
Fred may have married Sarah Augusta (last name unknown).  They had a son, David Daniel LOHNER on 08 Sept 1907 in Mullen.  Sarah and son David appear in Polk County, IA 1920 census married to Fred Kothenbeutel.
Any help or suggestions greatly appreciated!!!
