(Introductory remarks by the submitter: This memoir is an account of the pioneer family of Joseph and Francesca Dlugosh, who came in August of 1886 to Holt County, Nebraska from Poland. "Grandpa" is Joseph Dlugosh and "Grandma" is his wife, Francesca Dlugosh. The author is Raymond Dlugosh; he wrote this account from what he remembered of hearing his family talk about these early time, from visiting with other family members, and by revisiting the old home places. The following account is an excerpt from his memoir entitled "The Way I Heard It", by Raymond Dlugosh. I have excerpted this section, but tried to faithfully transcribe word-for-word Mr. Dlugosh's account.)

CITIZENSHIP

It was some weeks later, when there was definitely a feel of spring in the air, that Grandpa and John made the trip to the county seat, in O'Neill, Grandpa to file for citizenship and John to act as translator, so there would be no misunderstanding of this important undertaking. The first thing they found out was that there would not be another Citizenship Day until sometime in April of 1894 because the examinations were held only in the even years. In those years the citizenship laws were changed so often that many people weren't sure whether only the head of the family had to become a citizen for all family members to become citizens or if each member had to become a citizen when they attained twenty one years of age. At that particular time, only the head of the family had to become a citizen to assure citizenship for his spouse and all of his minor children. Some of the requirements for a person to become a citizen in those days were as follows; The applicant must have lived in the United States for at least five years, he\she must know how to write his\her name, he\she must be able to carry on a simple conversation in English, he/she must be able to read and understand a simple contract, he\she must have some knowledge of numbers but most of all he must be able to read and understand a ballot and how to vote. (Women were not allowed to vote until many years later). It was indicated that the presiding Judge at the citizenship ceremony might test applicants, verbally, on any or all of the mentioned subjects. When John explained all of this to Grandpa, he was glad that he would have a year to learn all of the required subjects.

Back home, John explained all this to the family. The older kids thought that it would be easy and fun to teach Grandpa all he needed to know for the test because he had already picked up a few phrases in English.

Although Grandpa spoke the phrases quite clearly and in the proper context, the kids didn't realize that he did not know what the words meant separately


NEBRASKA ANCESTREE VOLUME 22 NO 2
Page 73

CITIZENSHIP (continued)

until they tried to teach him other words or phrases. The writing went a little better but Grandpa kept trying to write the English words in Polish so you wouldn't believe some of the words he came up with. Within a short time the kids became impatient and tired of the whole project so Anna, who had more patience and was thirteen years old and in the fifth grade at the time, was chosen to be Grandpa's teacher. This task she accepted readily and proudly.

It was some time after the new year, 1894, that Grandpa received a very official looking invitation from the United States Government to appear at the District Court of Holt County in O'Neill, Nebraska to become A Citizen Of The United States and renounce forever all allegiance to any foreign Prince, Potentate, State or Sovereignty and particularly the Emperor of Germany.

The ceremony was to take place on the Sixth of April, 1894. Joseph Dlugosz and all members of his family who were to become citizens were requested to attend. This invitation caused quit (sic) a stir because until now it never registered in anyones mind that everyone except Karl was to become a citizen. Anna was busy as the proverbial cat on a hot tin roof trying to teach Grandma and the rest of the kids in a few weeks what she had taught Grandpa in many months.

When the time to go to O'Neill drew close Grandpa made arrangements with one of the neighbors to do the chores and whatever else needed to be done for a few days while the whole family was gone. This was not too easy to arrange because some of the closest neighbors were to become citizens at the same time. When the time came, because of the distance, the Dlugosh family left a day early. They were all dressed in their "Sunday goin' to church best".

Certainly a ceremony of this magnitude must require the best was Grandma's feeling. After the long, tiresome trip Grandpa stopped in front of the hotel and engaged two rooms for the night so everyone would get a good nights sleep and look refreshed when they appeared before the Judge the next day. As the day wore on everyone, including Grandpa, was getting a little apprehensive, wondering if they would be able to answer the Judge's questions when the time came. Next morning, while Grandma inspected everyone to make sure they would be presentable before someone as magnificent as District Judge must be, the kids could hardly wait to see what marvels this new day would bring.

The ceremony was to take place at one o'clock so after breakfast the whole family walked around the town a bit and peered into the windows of the stores, wishing for this or that. They met some of their neighbors doing the same thing, just to pass the time until it was time to appear at the courthouse. Toward noon everyone headed to the courtyard where some of the local women had set up a table with a large "Welcome "sign over it and refreshments for the would-be new citizens. There was coffee for the adults and pop for the kids with sandwiches and cookies for all. The Dlugoshs met more of their neighbors and acquaintances from around Stuart, plus a few more people from other parts of Holt County. At a few minutes before one, the County Sheriff, Charles W. Hamelton, asked all of the people to come into the courthouse and take their seats. The applicants were to sit in the front rows and all others


NEBRASKA ANCESTREE VOLUME 22 NO 2
Page 74

CITIZENSHIP (continued)

were to sit behind them. Karl was allowed to sit with his family because the usher thought he was too small to sit by himself among strangers.

At precisely one P.M., John Skirving, Clerk of the District Court, asked the people to all rise, the Honorable Moses P. Kincaid was about to enter the court. A not very impressive, older man, dressed in his black robe strode over to the Bench and sat down. The Court Clerk then asked all of the people to sit and he introduced them to the Judge as the applicants for citizenship. The Judge gave a very short welcoming speech and then went on to give a very long and uninteresting political speech extolling his own virtues, merits and accomplishments. (He later became the U.S. Senator from the State of Nebraska). Without hardly a pause, he then asked the applicants if they were ready to assume Citizenship of the United States of America. When they all said "Yes" in unison, he proceeded to swear them in as citizens, without so much as one question to anyone. This enraged Grandpa so much he could hardly contain himself and repeat the oath. The whole ceremony lasted less than forty-five minutes. What a let down! Everyone spent almost a year getting ready for one of the most important occasions of their lives and this was all that it amounted to. The disappointment was expressed by nearly everyone there. No one really knew what they expected but surely, more than this. To add insult to injury the Clerk of the Court informed everyone that their Certificates of Citizenship would be sent to them at a later date.

While Grandpa, John and Frank went to the livery barn to retrieve the horses and wagon, Grandma and the rest of the kids went into the store to get some bread, bologna and sweets for the trip home. It was a nice warm spring day so it was very pleasant traveling toward home but Grandpa grumbled practically all the way home about how hard he studied his lessons and how disappointed he was that he didn't get to recite before the Judge. (In later years the kids teased Grandpa, that the problem was that he didn't get to show off how much he knew in front of his neighbors). As the sun went down and the moon came up the air became quite cool but there were a couple of buffalo lap robes so everyone stayed reasonably warm. John and Frank drove most of the remaining daylight hours but it was thought that perhaps Grandpa had better drive at night because he knew the way home better than the boys did. They arrived home sometime before midnight.

Best Bids for Beasts
The SPRY, RICE & MULLOY auction of about 500 head of horses and mules commenced yesterday about 1 o'clock and was attended by a goodly number of buyers, one or more of these coming from as far east as Ohio and south as far as Oklahoma. The auctions were held at the Burlington stockyards and the animals offered brought what is generally regarded as very fair prices. The sale had been widely advertised, and the attendance was all that could be expected. People began arriving in the city the middle of last week to attend the sale, and every train brought others. No. 41 was met at the depot by the brass band, shortly thereafter the crowd went to the yards. ISHAM Bros., the famous horsemen with stables in Mazon, Ill., attended for the third successive year, bringing 16 head of splendid draft stallions.
Auctioneers: Col. GALLUP, C.L. DRAKE. Clerk: R M HAMPTON.
