I have ancestors who were on the 1880 Wheeler Census. I think
the children were all born while in Wheeler County. In reading
the obits for these ancestor children, they state they were born
in Clearwater which is in Antelope County. Is this a case where
Clearwater (where they did live later) is the closest town? The
family is as listed below:
1880 Census Wheeler Co. Twp 24 R 9
Linton ANDERSON 24 Farmer
+ Bell 22 wife
Cressey 3 son
Lizzie 1 dau
Linton ANDERSON (born John Linton ANDERSON) was born in Dubuque
Co. IA in 1856. He married Bell (Adabelle STEVENS) 13 Jul 1876
in Antelope Co. marriage records. Linton ANDERSON states he is
a resident of Clearwater in the Mill Precinct. Witness were Elias
STEVENS and Maggie Belle MUMMERT. Can anyone clarify which county
is correct and does Wheeler have land records for 1880?

I am currently search my father's family history and I seem
to be stuck. Ruben Davis Bumgardner and Justine Reynolds had
this kid named Preston L. Bumgardner. His last residence seemed
to be Ericson, Nebraska. I would not know where he would be buried
at either. I know that there is an Ericson Cemetery so I went
to Lincoln to the State Historical Society and looked for a Wheeler
County cemetery and I couldn't find any so what I am saying is
to help me find some information. Thank you so much!!!!

My ancestors homesteaded in Wheeler County. My father was
born in Bartlet, NE in 1942. His other brothers and sisters were
also born there. The surname is BOOB. I am having difficulty
obtaining a birth certificate for my father. I did have a search
done but it showed nothing. I do know that the courthouse where
his bireth was recorded burned down, but I am not sure when.
I anyone can give me this information, I would appreciate it.

My great grandfather, David Emery BROTHWELL and his wife,
Mary Irene WILDMAN lived in Homestead, Wheeler County, NE before
1917. David Emery died there on 5 Jun 1917. Mary Irene died there
on 1 Mar 1921. David Emery BROTHWELL was born 21 Oct 1833 in
Fairfield County, CT. Mary Irene WILDMAN was born 26 Jan 1836
in TX. They were married 8 Feb 1857 in Brighton, IN.
I know that David Emery served in the Union Army during the Civil
War. I believe he was granted a pension. I am wondering if I
can find land records in the local courthouse. Are there homestead
records in the local courthouse? I have been told that David
Emery taught school at one time and that he also ran for County
Clerk but was defeated. Can anyone tell me if there is a local
historical or genealogical society in this county? Can you tell
me how to obtain land records, death certificates, etc., and
what is the charge for them? I also need to know about the cemeteries
in the area.
Does anyone know of a community called Silver Creek? Is it in
Wheeler County? I would be so grateful for any help you can give
me. Lerneda Gaudino

I am currently working on my family history and have traced
my great great grandparents to the state of Nebraska...have yet
to locate exactly where. I just recently checked in Dixon County
and they informed me that there was a Frank BYRNE in Wheeler
County in 1917. My gg Grandfathers' name was Frank BYRNE and
his wife's name was Mary (RYAN) BYRNE. Up until 1870--I know
they were in DeWitt, Iowa. My grandfather was born sometime around
1840. I only know of one child Frank and Mary had--my great grandfather--John
Frances BYRNE--who was born in 1869. I know this Irish Catholic
couple had to have had several more children but until I find
them--I can not find out about any more of the children. The
state of Nebraska has been very helpful in my search.... Any
help you could be to me would be greatly appreciated. I am determined
to find my roots. Thanks.

I am looking for land records for my gg grandfather, William
REILLY. REILLY may also have been spelled RILEY. They moved to
Wheeler County in 1880. In the "State Gazetteer Farmers
List" he was listed with Bartlett as his hometown. Some
of the neighbors at the time were the GRIFFITHS and MIGNERY.
As the area was settled some of the other neighbors were: BURKES,
KIRKPATRICKS, MITCHELLS and DILTS. At one time they had a post
office at the house. The family moved in 1896 to St. Paul, ME
but two of the sons stayed at the ranch. I don't know when the
ranch was sold.

I'm looking for any information on Joseph V. SHAVLIK (1854-?)

Would like to know date of death and burial location and also
want to know when he came to Wheeler County. One source says
1915 and another indicates before 1907.
Especially interested in the family that came with him and if
it included his mother. Her first name believed to be Margaret
and she was born about 1828. Trying to find her burial location
but haven't had any luck. Her husband (Joseph's father) died
in 1875 in Saunders County and is buried there, but I can't find
records for her. Any help would be most appreciated.

I have some information about the man that Wheeler County
was named for, and I wonder if anyone could verify it for me.
I have not studied the site carefully, but I did not see any
information about it's origin. I have copies of some publications
that ascetain that the person Wheeler County was named for was
Major Daniel WHEELER. It says Wheeler County was created by an
act of the legislature, 1k7 Feb 1899. I have pictures of he and
his wife, his obituary, and several small articles. His father
was William WHEELER, who was a judge and a State Representative
in the 1840-60s in St. Joseph County, MI. Daniel's sister, Mary
WHEELER was my 3rd great grandmother. All 14 of the WHEELER's
children were born in MI, ten of whom outlived their parents.
If anyone would like transcripts of the articles I possess or
pictures, please let me know.
