PRAIRIE VIEW CEMETERY, WASHINGTON COUNTY
Location: In the Southeast quarter of the Southwest quarter (SE1/4 of SW1/4) of Section Nineteen (19), Township 17 North, Range 11 East, Washington Co., Ne.
From Kennard: 1-21 miles west on Highway #31, south 2 miles on Highway #31 and 1/2 mile east on County Road 138.
From Bennington: West on Highway #36 to #31, north on #31 for 3 miles, and east 1/2 mile on County Road 138.
The Prairie View Cemetery Association was organized in 1882 by twelve Danish immigrants who purchased two lots each in the Western Division. The plat and papers of the organization were recorded in the office of the County Clerk 1883.
The members were: Andrew KNUDSEN, Martin RASMUSSEN, Louis CHRISTENSEN, John C. ANGERSEN, Hans MORTENSEN, A. C. OVERGAARD, Chris RASMUSSEN, James CHRISTENSEN, R. P. ANDERSEN, Martin RISPIN, Andrew STEFFENSEN, Lars HANSEN. Of these, there are no recorded burials from the families of ANGERSEN, MORTENSEN, OVEGAARD, and R. P. ANDERSEN. Each transferred his lots to other Danish settlers. The other 80 family members and descendants have their final resting place on their lots.
Meetings of the Association have been held annually since its formation. Additional land was purchased and fenced, the Association recently incorporated and a perpetual care fund has been established. Current president is Alvin ANDERSEN; Lawrence HANSEN, who lives south of Kennard, is secretary and caretaker of the original records. In early days it was know as OVERGAARD Cemetery.KNUDSEN, Andrew b. 31 Jan 1844 d. 28 Aug 1911 Father Anna his wife b. 25 Dec 1854 d. 31 Jan 1922 Mother John Peter b. 11 Dec 1878 d. 16 Jan 1947 Dora 23 Jun 1885 Charles 1875-1943 Pauline 1877-1972 MISFELDT, George 1906 Verna A. 1906-1972 RASMUSSEN, Chrs, fodt in Denmark, den 6 Jun 1858, dod den 14 Marts 1908 Father Anine, Hustru, fodt den 28 Okt 1853, Dod den 10 Dec 1934 Mother STEFFENSON, Baby 1883-1884 A.

THE WAGNER FAMILY, STANTON COUNTY
My grandparents, William A. WAGNER and Anna Rosina HENEKE, were both born in Germany and met on the ship coming to the US approximately 1867. He was traveling alone, and she was traveling with her parents and sister. They came to Ill where they married soon after. They migrated to Neb. in 1872 in order to obtain a homestead which was located about halfway between Pilger and Altona, Neb. They built a small cabin on the homestead as soon as they arrived there. Then later, a large nine-room house was built by carpenters for around $900 in 1892-1893. People came for miles on weekends by horse and buggy to dance and use and admire my grandmother's sewing machine which was one of the first in NE Neb. They operated the first flour, run by a water wheel, in that part of Neb. My grandfather learned the milling trade in Germany. They had the largest barn in the area, and raised livestock, poultry, and grains. They later moved the flourmill to Pilger. Two major floods hit the town in the early 1900's and following one of the floods the town had an epidemic of typhoid which took the lives of the WAGNERS' son, August, and daughter, Amelia. The mil (sic) was repaired after the first flood but not the second, as my grandfather had passed away. My grandfather was one of the donors to start the Wayne State Teachers Normal, which my mother later attended. She taught school at Wakefield, Neb. and Dalton, SD. One of the early teachers my mother had was Daisy ABBOTT. I remember her talking about Professor PYLE and head of the College Conn., who had a daughter, Ardath. My mother talked a lot about the SHARP family in Pilger, a girl May and a boy Claude.

FIRST SETTLERS IN RIVERTON, FRANKLIN COUNTY
A group of men in Omaha in 1870 formed a company, known as the Thompson Colony, to explore land in outstate Nebraska. They traveled as far as Thompson Creek, returned to Omaha that fall urging people to file claims for settlement. In 1871 the Thompson Colony asked Governor BUTLER for arms and ammunition for defense against the Indians. The Governor advised the group to form a militia company, which they did and elected T. S. BUTLER, Captain; J. H. HUNTER, 1st Lt., and William C. THOMPSON, 2nd Lt. in the Second Nebraska Cavalry.
The first settlers of the Thompson Colony were: Barnett ASHBURNE owned 3 of the teams which helped bring the settlers. William Bedford ONEY (who was married to ASHBURNE's daughter, Mary); H. BANKS, William C. THOMPSON, who served as the first postmaster; his brother, James W. THOMPSON, leader of the Colony (the creek was named for these brothers); Thomas S. BUTLER, who carried mail to Kearney. These people all lived in the stockade and the rest of the company lived in their covered wagons and dug-outs on their homestead claims.
Jacob BURRIS taught 5 children the first summer in a willow school on the west bank of the Thompson Creek. A flood in August washed away the school and a new limestone one was built farther upon the hill.
The first baby born in the Stockade (and what is now Riverton) was William ONEY, born 2 o'clock a. m., 17 Nov 1871. When this child was 6 years old, another child 3 1/2 and a little girl, who was 2 when she came and was 8 at the time, all died within 3 weeks of each other with diptheria. Another child soon died after being in contact with these children.
Also with the Colony was an Uncle Johnney ____, an Irishman, with a great sense of Humor, Richard BECKWITH, Isaac CHAPPEL, John CORDIN, Michael O'SULLIVAN, an Omahan who held the meetings of the group at his home. His step-daughter. Sarah BODWILL, died with consumption before their house was completed. He later wrote a history of the town. Others were Thomas Edward RILEY, who married Sybilla Elizabeth HAND. They operated an early hotel and cafe in Riverton. Lemuel ROBINSON and his wife, Emily Sofia GARRETSON, also came in a covered wagon. They were the grandparents of Eugene WARRINER. John SILVER built the first store at the stockage. Rev. TOWNSEND, a Methodist preacher, was the first to preach in the county. He lived near Franklin.
