BARGER, MEISNER posted by Sam D. Lawson on Thursday, June 11, 1998

I would like to find persons interested or knowing of Henry C. MEISNER and his wife, Susan BARGER. Henry was born in Holzthaleben, Germany, on 19 February, 1827. He immigrated to the U.S. about 1845, became a naturalized citizen in 1851 while in Harrison County, Indiana, marrying there to Susan BARGER on 20 February, 1856. They had 8 children. At age 57 (in 1884) he and family moved to Nebraska, near Gordon in Sheridan County. There he became a homesteader. (Southeast quarter of section 29 in township 34, north of range 41, west of the 6th principle meridian in Nebraska containing 160 acres) He later went on to Elgin, Nebraska about 1899-1900. He and family returned to Indiana, in Harrison County about 1905. He died 16 November, 1914 in Harrison County, Indiana and is buried in Rehoboth Church Cemetery near Laconia. His wife, after his death, went back to Nebraska, near Petersburg, in Boone County, to be near her sons. She died there and was transported back to Indiana for burial next to her husband. Anyone descending from these families or interested in exchanging info, please contact me at lawson@hsonline.net or write Sam D. Lawson, 1929 Hiker Trace, Columbus, Indiana, 47203-3541

HAUSHERR, MOORE posted by Fred Apel on Tuesday, June 23, 1998

I am researching two of my great uncles who settled in the Rushville, Nebraska area during the Homestead Act Days. They were Harry and Charles Hausherr. I think they had farm land that was eventually sold to someone named Holstein. Other members of the family in that area were Myrtle Hausherr who married Alonzo (Lonie) Moore and who may still have decendants in the area.

BECKMAN, PARKER, VOLLINTINE posted by Stan Heginbotham on Tuesday, July 7, 1998

Carl and Sophia BECKMAN came to Sheridan County in the 1880s as far as I can tell. They had two children, Charles Henry BECKMAN, who married Blanche VOLLINTINE (they settled in Box Butte County) and Anna Louise BECKMAN, who married Cassius Clay PARKER (son of Joshua and Mariah PARKER). We will be visiting Sheridan County during the week of July 14, seeking information on the BECKMANs and the PARKERs. We have family contacts to current PARKERS, but have completely lost contact with the history of the BECKMANs.
