THAYER COUNTY SCHOOL DISTRICT 13 Is OBSERVING 50th ANNIVERSARY. (ca 1940)

The building built in the summer of 1890 still serves. In the "70's the school was known as Pioneer (for the vicinity) and was of sod.

W. H. BARGER made the report of the first year (apparently 1875 as that when when (sic) the organization took place.) C.E. BARTON of Carleton was a director. BARGER was county superintendent. The following year, R. H. WILLIAMS, came in as director.

Among the early pupils were: Charles SHOTT, Mary GOODMAN, Cozie OLDS (said to be of Lincoln), Ella TROWBRIDGE, Greenward HIT, Ed OGDEN and Millie BALLARD.

Early instructors: C.E. BARTON, Femma JAY and James DINSMORE. For the year ending 1 April 1878, Miss Laura WEST and A. W. CAMPBELL had the school, succeeding Miss JAY and Arthur EVANS. Mr. CAMPBELL's name reappears in 1879. Miss Mary BRISS and Alfred MEAD taught in 1879-1880.

It was decided a new building was needed in the 90's. W.R. MACY, David FINNLY, Mahlon HALL, George HARRISON, G. W. POPPLE and John TAYLER Spent the summer of 1890 hauling lumber. POPPLE had given the land for the school. Members of the school board; David FINNLY, Joe LIMES & G. W. BAILEY & Mahlon HALL.

J. F. RAMBO taught first classes in the new building. Among the earliest to finish their elementary education were: Fred MACY and Charlie THOMPSON.

CITIES AND TOWNS OF NEBRASKA

Scottsbluff began as a stepchild of Gering, now its smaller neighbor. Gering was started in 1886 by Oscar GARDNER, the first postmaster, and was named after Martin GERING. A.B. WOOD began publishing the Gering Courier.

In 1889 the Burlington & Missouri Railroad put a line through the upper North Platte Valley missing Gering by 2 miles. The Lincoln Land Company (a Hurling subsidiary) whose president was Charles MORRILL offered anyone a free lot if he would move the 2 miles to the platted but unpopulated town. Winfield EVANS built the first buldings (sic) in Scottsbluff. Charles SIMMONS built a store and postoffice. Frank McCREARY and George LUFT opened a hardware store. E.V. WESTERVELT issued the town's newspaper, the Republican. Hayward G. LEAV1TT promoted the beet sugar industry in Scottsbluff.

O. N. TYSON platted the town of Plattsmouth in November 1850. He was a surveyor for the Plattsmouth Town Company.

N.H. BARNARD and John A. KOUNTZ were the first to stake a claim in Fremont, Aug. 23, 1856.

John D. NELIGH was the founder of West Point in 1858.

Mr. & Mrs. Lewis MOFFITT organized the platting of Seward in 1871.

John I. BLAIR founded Blair in 1869.

W. C. McDOWELL and J. B. MATTINGLY founded Fairbury in 1869.

Wahoo's first settler was Moses STOCKING in 1865. James M. LEE built the first house, had the first store and was the first postmaster in Wahoo in 1869.

Moses H. SYDENHAM was one of Kearney's founders in 1873.

J. C. BICKEL homesteaded in 1863, the land on which Crete was built.

John J. COZAD founded Cozad in 1872. Hans ANDERSEN planted the first alfalfa in the Cozad area. He was a native of Denmark.
