From: THE PIONEER HISTORY OF GREELY COUNTY, NE by Edith Swain McDermott.
EARLY HISTORY OF GREELY COUNTY, NEBRASKA
Greeley County was settled by homeseekers. People who joined immigrant trains from the eastern states or trekked overland with ox teams and white topped wagons to find land for a home. Soldiers of the Civil War, Immigrants from Ireland, Germany, Sweden, Denmark and Austria: miner from Pennsylvania; marble cutters, hatters, tailors, wagon makers, carpenters, laborers, and skilled artisans from Boston, New York, Philadelphia, New Jersey, Ohio, Illinois and Wisconsin. Men who were tired of a boss and were determined to be their own; college graduates, men with money and men with none, found themselves neighbors engaged in the common task of making a home and a living.
The territory which now comprised Greeley county appears to have been inhabited by that legendary character, "Happy Jack Swearington", who lived and trapped up and down the Loup Valley before 1869, when he lived for a time on the peak which bears his name in the chalk hills near Scotia.
The first claim in the county was that of Alcie P. FISH who filed his papers in 1871 in the southwestern part of the county. At that same time a party arrived from Washara County, Wisc., to seek a location for a colony of Seventh Day Baptists. Of that party only C.P. ROOD returned a favorable report. In Nov. of that year he returned with his brother, his son-in-law, Mansell DAVIS and John SHELDON. Mr. DAVIS and Mr. SHELDON filed on land adjoining the Valley county line on 6 November 1871.
John KELLOGG filed a claim in the fall of 1871, north of the resent town of Scotia and in April 1872, S.C. SCOTT, his wife and five daughters, Alonzo SHEPARD, wife and daughter, Maude, A.M. STEWART, established their homes in this neighborhood.
A post office was located in the area, by the name of Lamartine, 17 April 1873 with A. P. FISH in charge.
In December of that year Mr. and Mrs. James WALLACE arrived to take land.
Among other early arrivals, were the families of A.J. GILLESPIE, Lewis F. PHILIPS, John V. ALDERMAN, D. BENSON, Oscar BABCOCK, W. WHITEFORD, Wm. HARRIS, Harvey GROSSE, Fred HITZMAN, Ben MULLENBAK, Thomas TOWNSLEY, T.C. DAVIS, George HILLMAN, L.C. SCOTT, E.B. FISH. Later arrivals included James HARLOW, G. CRAIG, Patrick COYNE, J.J.
