Harrison
Friday, 7/2/04,
We are looking for history on a Samuel Harrison. He told his family he was born in approx. 1881 and died in 1982. He told family when he was married that he was born and raised in Dixon County in Nebraska. He was from a large family. We are looking for any tombstones relating to his family or if there are any living family members, can I get names and addresses so that I can further check into his history and find out more history about the Harrison family. Any help you can give us would be greatly appreciated.

Hartman
Judy DaweThursday, 6/14/07, 1:55 AM My ggf, John Belle Lisle, settled in Dixon Cty north of Hiway 20 in Clark Twp in the 1880's with his family. The farm passed to my gf, Frank Leroy Lisle who married Margaret Myrtle Davidson in 1912; many of grandpa's siblings also married and lived in the area. G&G passed the farm to their daughter Janice Lisle who married Marvin Hartman who in turn passed it to their son Clayton Hartman and his wife Sandra Bloom. Marvin is now on a farmer nearer Dixon (where G&G also lived) and Clayton and Sandy live down the hiway from the "North" place, still in Dixon Cty. Clayton & Marvin still farm the land. I have many happy memories of the years I spent at both farms as well as others in the area with my cousins in Laurel, Cedar County (WICKETT & KVOLS). I am always trying to learn more about my family history and would enjoy hearing from others. Email: dawejudy@hotmail.com

Holstein
Nancy DiemSunday, 1/25/09, 10:26 AM I am trying to figure out why my great-uncle, John Theodore Steinmuller, whose family always lived in Cleveland, OH, was born in Nebraska on September 29, 1903. The only connection I can find is that John's uncle, the Rev. Jacob Holstein, had a Lutheran parish in Martinsburg, NB (Dixon County) at that time. (Perhaps the Steinmuller family was visiting when his mother gave birth? Perhaps he was a foundling child turned over to the Reverend's family? A big mystery.) I've found that Nebraska birth records start one year later, in 1904. (Drat!) Is there a place in Dixon County that perhaps might have kept earlier records? Does anyone know what church the Rev. Holstein was at? Are there any other agencies I can contact? Any guidance you might offer would be very much appreciated. I can be e-mailed at updiems@att.net. Thank you! Email: updiems@att.net

Hoover, Myers, Meyer, Mattison, Beller
Date: 4/14/01  I am seeking info on my gg-grandfather Josiah Hoover who came to Dixon Co. from Jesup Co. IA in 1870 and died in Ponca Apr 19, 1892. He and his wife Mary Jane Hostrawser had six children: Emma (my g-grandmother), Joe who married Abbie _____, Frank, Carl, Phebe who married Matt Johns, and Bet (Elizabeth?) who married Jack Shaw.

Emma Hoover married William Meyer in Ponca May 6, 1894.  William Meyer was the son of Albert Meyer and Huldah Myers. Huldah Myers was the daughter of Merlin Mudge Myers (b. Apr 14, 1825 Oneida Co. NY d. Jan 7, 1907 in Ponca) and Susan Valleau (b. abt. 1829 in Monroe Co. NY d. Jan 15, 1906 in Ponca).

Children of Albert Meyer and Huldah Myers were William, Pearl Meyer m. Charlie Kolb, Susy Meyer m. George Woods, May Meyer m. Orland Kniffel, Hattie Meyer m. Jim Beller, Lena Meyer m. John Scharff, Lizzie Meyer, and George Meyer m. Lillian Hubbard.

William Meyer, his wife Emma Hoover, their three children along with William's mother and father, and Emma's mother all went to Alberta, Canada in 1899.

I am trying to find the parents of Josiah Hoover.  Family tradition has mentioned a Katharine Burnhardt.  I have found a Catherine Barnhart who married a William Henry Hoover in 1821 in Mercer Co. PA. They moved to Keokuk, IA in 1844 and he died in 1860 in Cadiz, Greene Co. IA. Among their seven children is a Josiah Hoover (no other details but probably b. between

1820 and 1830). Josiah's daughter Emma was born in Jesup, Buchanan Co. IA in 1869; just before osiah's family moved to Dixon Co. NE.  The other interesting point is that this Catharine Barnhart died Jan 4, 1891 in Hartington, Cedar Co. NE, just a relatively short distance from Ponca where my Josiah Hoover lived. I would like to determine whether this Catharine Barnhart is indeed the mother of my Josiah Hoover or not.

Finally, I would like info on a George Mattison who marrried Flora Ann Myers who was the daughter of Merlin Mudge Myers and Susan Valleau.
I would appreciate any info from anyone who recognizes any of the names above and I am willing to exchange any information. acmeyer@iinet.net.au (Allan Meyer)
