Hi Becky – as usual I was going to get all my ducks in a row before I responded, but it’s taking too long!Here's some detail on the info we’ve been working on, for (hopefully) other researchers.I have a lot of speculative info, but so far they are just hunches based on coincidence and proximity.More on that later.
Also, I don’t think we’ve talked about the 1885 Nebraska census yet.I've listed it below; I don’t remember how I even came across it, but I was surprised to find them there.Any thoughts?
