Merrick Co.      EARLY HISTORY OF THIS NEIGHBORHOOD (Palmer)

The writer crossed the Missouri River on a ferry boat, the 27th day of Oct. 1871, Stayed all night at the Canfield Hotel in Omaha, left that city the next morning at 7 a.m. by passenger train, and landed at Lone Tree (now Central City) at about 4 p.m. same day, Ticket cost $9.90. Stayed all night at James PERCIVALS 6 miles west of Central City. Slept on floor with Jacob TEMPLIN, and later made my home with him for the winter on his homestead S.W. 1/4, Sect, 10, T. 13, R. 7.

In later part of Nov. Frank COOLEDGE, (brother of Charles) drove to the Loup river for wood, James PERCIVAL, AND I went along. On our way over PERCIVAL shot a deer, we loaded COOLEDGE with wood and he went home, coming after us in three days. We stayed in a tent in the brush north and east of the MALONE residence. Deer were very plenty, but wild on account of hunting, but every night we could hear them in the brush. They went to the hill early in the morning, and returned at night,

On a later date Ira JEFFRES drove his ox team to the same place on the river. James APPLEGATE and I went along. We stayed three days.

The next day I shot a deer that a Pawnee Indian had crippled, (now laugh) and was following. When the Indian came up, he made me understand that the hide was his, so we skinned the deer, and I took one hind quarter and walked to camp. This occured (sic) about two miles north of the river between the cottonwood and Rock creek.

The next day I met John HAYES of Lone Tree (father of Joe HAYES) at the foot of the hill north of the LIMMERMAN home. He showed me an old Imdian (sic) camp, west of the LIMMERMAN home and a hole in the ground about 10 feet deep, where the Indians evidently kept their winter provisions. The hole was about three feet across at the top, and about 10 feet at the bottom, like a funnel upside down. Mr. HAYES found a two year old buck in the hole and killed it. A knotty oak crotch stood in the hole which was used as a ladder by the Indians.

On my first trip to the river, one day in the afternoon, I met Ed PARKER in his shirt sleeves, he was returning to camp which was up near the forks of the river. We met about where the old HOUTIN home stood, it was very cold, but Ed. seemed to enjoy it hugely. He was a character along with Buffalo Bill, wore long hair, and at that thime (sic) was county clerk of Merrick county. When the settlers got thick, he moved to other quarters, more congenial to men of his kind, his nature was to be in the front ranks of civilization.

In the early seventies one Sunday in Nov., I was sitting at the south window looking southwest, the wind was blowing strong from the north, when I saw a deer coming toward the house, he stopped in the slough where the grass was big My house was then in the timber in the N.E. of McNEALS pasture, the trees were only switches at that time. I got Wm. CAMPBELL and Chas. WHERRETT with their guns, they stood on the west side of the slough, while I went around and drove the deer between the two. WHERRETT brought the deer down with the first shot.

One day my wife and her mother were in the garden south of the trees, when a big elk came and stopped close to them, soon Bob WOODEN and A.D. BEECE came along and followed the elk across the McNEAL farm, and it crossed over about where the PALMER school now stands, and they killed it just north of the GRAMMER barn, this I think was in June 1875. Andy REECE would know.



NEBRASKA ANCESTREE      Summer      Volume 17, No. 1      Page 23

Early History of this Neighborhood (Palmer) continued:

When I was locating my timber claim, (where McNEAL now lives) and my homestead about April 20th, 1874, just after the three days blizzard, I crossed Elk creek going south at the corner stale of S.E. corner of the Q.F. LAMBERT farm, with a pair of mules and wagon. The whole country has been burnt over and the storm the worst I ever saw. On my round trip I counted 26 dead deer that had perished, and I took several pelts myself.

To illustrate how severe the storm was, Jason PARKER, who lived on Prairie creek ten miles east of Palmer at that time, had gone to Lone Tree, and could not get back, he left 65 head of cattle in his corral with a very good shed facing south, when he returned he had some over 30 head of little cattle left, the other big cattle drove the little ones out, as the shed drifted full until it smothered all the big cattle. Cattle were drifted in all the creeks and sloughs in the country, I found one of DAVISES in Elk creek on the FITCHPARTICK farm. In my next I will try and locate the old settlers.

A. M. TEMPLIN

From The Palmer Journal, March 30, 1922

THE EARLY SETTLERS

In writing the history, or rather locating the early settlers of the Loup Valley, most of which occurred about 50 years ago; and which would be hard to remember, or describe, were it not for the wisdon (sic) of our departed friend Judge COPELAND, who had in his possession the "Enumeration of the inhabitants in Loup, or Precinct No. 8 on the 1st day of April, AD. 1875" This I just received from Miss Joe COPELAND, and which I will return when through with this record, think this enumeration should be kept by Miss Joe, or some one whom she may select.

The boundry (sic) line of this Precinct at the time, was the Pawnee Reservation on the north, (or Nance county) on the east, the section line west of the Wm. WAGONER farm, and on that line north in the hills, thence was a jog, which extended east of the WOOLCOTT farm. On the south, the section line south of the Chas. COOLEDGE farm. On west the Howard county line. I have no map, but judging from the names of the residents at that time, I think this correct. Perhaps the south line might have been a mile further north.

As to the first settler in this Precinct I am not sure. I know that John DAVIS, and his mother both built sod houses on the north half of the Palmer section, in the fall or summer of 1873. I think Albert ZAMZOW (enumerated as SAMPSON) built on his land about the same time. Whether Bob WOODEN, and others had settled before that time, I think John DAVIS would know. (Mr. DAVIS says WOODEN, J. C. KNAPP and Allison COLE came the year before.)

N.E. 1/4 section 32 John DAVIS located, where Mrs. O'HERN lives, the N.W. 1/4 Mrs. Hanna DAVIS, mother of John, located. Later Norris DAVIS homestead the west half. The S.W. 1/4 Ben ALSPAUGH located where Chas. GRAMMER now lives. ALSPAUGH sold to Mrs. LAMBERT, mother of Mrs. Adam HECK. ALSPAUGH, after burying his step daughter, the first one buried there, deeded the cemetery to the public. The S.E. 1/4 J. C. KNAPP filed as timber claim, and later sold to John W, TEMPLIN, now of Worland, Wyo.

S. half of S.E. 1/4 section 30, Porter BAIRD located, sold to Ed McDONALD, now owned by Adam DONCHASKI, W. J. COPELAND the eighty north. The N.E. 1/4 Robert McCANN located, and when he proved up he deeded Mr. COPELAND 40 acres along the south for $200, that he had borrowed, to help move him and his family west, The N.W. 1/4 fractional quarter was located by Eugene BROWN, now of Washington.

The Early Setters (Palmer) continued:

N.E. 1/4 section 20 Isaac PLACE located; and is now the only persin (sic) in the Precinct that lives where he homesteaded, unless Albert ZAMZOW. The S.E. 1/4 Frank Baird located, and the N.W. 1/4 Wm. CHURCHILL, the last two later moved to Washington. John DAILLY now owns the BAIRD and TAYLOR HALF section.

The S.E. 1/4 section 18, a fraction, was located by Helon FOSTER, who later moved to Colorado. The S.W. 1/4 John THOMAS, father of Newton THOMAS located. The N.W. 1/4 Wesley LUDINGTON. Later these two places were known as the Malone ranch. LUDINGTON then located north of the river on the strip now known as the LIMMERMAN farm. LUDINGTON for years before he moved across the river, operated a ferry near his house. It use to be great fun for him to fall in the river to frighten his patrons when they least expected it. I think his wife was a Methodist, but Lud, evidently was a Baptist.
