Robson
Judy Dawe, 6/14/07, 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

Schulte
We are searching...
Rev. Paul E Schulte  and wife Minnie...children:Pauline, and Julia.
His son Theodore Schulte was born and baptised in Martinsburg, NE.

Reverend Paul Schulte, a candidate from Concordia Seminary in
Springfield, Illinois, came in 1880. The records show George Remont, a
Cherokee Indian, was baptised on June 18, 1880 by Reverend P. Schulte.
Reverend Schulte left to serve a congregation in Colon, Nebraska in
1882-1885 (St Matthews Evangelical Lutheran Church)Saunders County.

In 1885 he was called to a church in Martinsburg, Dixon County, Nebraska.
Trinity Lutheran Church. This was the first Missouri Synod Lutheran
Church in northeast Nebraska.  From there we think he may have gone to
NY but we are not sure.  We do not know how long he was in Martinsburg
area.  We wouldlike to find some church records or anything that might
tell us how long he was there and where he actually went next.

St Pauls in Kingsville Maryland is where he ended up. Can anyone help us?

Severson
BOSTWICK, MARTINSON, SEVERSON, LAKE, STUKAS - My grandfather Guy Bostwick (born April 15, 1880) was born in New York state but came to the Ponca area with his family in the late 1880's or early 1890's; the family then moved to Minn.

He later returned and is found in the 1900 census boarding in Ionia. On Jan. 1, 1906 he married Christina MARTINSON in Lime Grove, her parents were Christian and Gunda Maria (OLSON) MARTINSON.

Maria had relatives in the Lime Grove area by the name of SEVERSON. Guy had an uncle by the name of George LAKE who married Alice AUSTIN in Ponca in the 1890's.  Guy's sister Annice married a STUKAS and had several children: Harold, Mary Jane and others. Guy's brother Frank married Irene STUKAS and they had Bill, Norwin, and Etta.

Guy and Christina ran a hotel in Newcastle for a short time in the early years of their marriage. He was a carpenter by trade and worked in the Newcastle and Ponca area besides traveling to Sioux City and other places. 

The family lived in Sioux City several times but mainly lived south (?) of Maskell, out towards the Chris Martinson farm.  They had six children: Victor, Howard, Francis, Charlotte, Hugh and Orin. I know my Bostwick family but would appreciate stories about them.
Thank you for any help.   Mary Ann   05/27/02 Cecil and Mary Ann at cematapey@aol.com

Steinmuller
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

Swanson
Marilyn Siders RossSunday, 3/26/06, 3:22 PM I am researching my husband's mothers family, the Swansons. In particular, Carl A. Swanson who was born in Sweden around 1871 or 1872. He was 41 when he married Bridget Liddy Slaight, a widow with 2 children on February 11, 1913 in Gregory, South Dakota. The addresses they both gave on their marriage license was Gross, Nebraska. People who also lived in Fort Randall received their mail at Gross for a time. They had 5 children of their own. My husband's mother, Elizabeth Agnes, Anna Ruth, Robert Joseph, Emma and Irene. Robert was killed in action in World War 2 and Irene died from choking on a balloon when she was 15 mo. Carl and Bridget parted sometime after Irene's death. She never talked about him so we know nothing only what we have found in the 1920 census of Holt County, Nebraska. I was going through some old photos of Grandma Swansons and found a photo marked on the back with "Mr. and Mrs. Charles Swanson, January 1, 1908" the photo is of a nice looking dark haired man age about 25 to 30 or so. The wife is about 25 or so with I think brown hair. There are three children, a boy about 3 or 4, a girl about 4 or 5 and a baby, about 1 year to 15 mo. The front of the photo has the photo studio name "Hanson" with Wakefield, Nebr. Does these names ring a bell with anyone? If so please contact me at Kelci@inebraska.com. Thanks Marilyn Siders Ross Email: kelci@inebraska.com

Tesdall
Rozalyn BoyerThursday, 7/31/08, 8:39 PM HI from Iowa, My name is Rozalyn Boyer. My family was from eastern Cedar County and western Dixon County. My father was Elwin (Chet) Tesdall from Obert. My Great-great-great-grandparents were Ole and Abelu Nelson. I know that the Nelson name is very common BUT I'm try to match up the families that are related to me. Ole and Abelu first child was a son Nils Andreas Olssen born in Norway on 1 Jan 1847. He also used Nelson for a last name and some time spelled his first name Nels. I think he married Sigria Nesheim. I had found one source stating they did not have any children but I think they had at least 7. Child #2 was My Great-great-grandmother Severina Elisabeth Olsdatter. She was born in Norway, came to the US with her parents in 1857. Severina married Aad Evensen. Their daughter, Adeline married Halvor Tesdall. They were my Great-grandparents. My grandparent were Alfred and Lela (Stevens) Teadall. Child #3 of Ole and Abelus' was named Ole Nelson. He married Maren Otillan. They had at least 11 children but I have only found names of 8. Child #4 was Hans. He was born in Norway on 1 Mar, 1854. He left Norway with his parents but I have not been able to find out want happened to him. The 5th child was Tora or Thora. She as born in Minnesota. In the 1880 census she was listed as Tora Olson age 13. I have not been able to find her after that. Ole, Abelu, Aad, Severina, and several of Aad and Severina's children are buried in the Lime Creek Cem. I know there is an Ole and Nels that could be my Great-great-great-uncles too but I would like to know for sure. Also what happened to Hans and Tora? I do not think Hans made it to Dixon Co. but Tora did. Any information would be Great!! I just want to get the correct families in my history and share what I have found. Almost everyone I knew from the area has passed away. Thank-you Roz Boyer Email: rozalyn@mac.com

A son, Howard Chester Tubbs married Florence Dickenson and has at least two children: Chester and Eleanor. I'd like to hear from you if Chester Tubbs is your ancestor please.
