I have been watching this with interest.
I was born in Bancroft in 1926, but lived in Lyons, Burt Co., NE until I
I am not sure but I think I was born on the Peter (Purdy) NELSON farm.
I remember hearing my Dad (Blake MILLER who married Barbara Helen
ORANDER) quoting things a "Purdy" had said.
My grandparents lived in the neighborhood of Albert Larson and Peter
(Purdy) Nelson. Their name was James Green ORANDER and had rented a
farm north of the Paine School, dist 37. I believe they rented this
farm about 1918. They had children Jennie Irene b. 1904, Barbara Helen
born 1906, Twins, Earl James and Mattie Pearl born in 1909. They all
attended the Bancroft Schools.
This grandfather is my brick wall and I would love to hear from anyone
that could add information about their life in Bancroft and their
children's school records etc.
The family moved to Washington state in 1937.
Thanks so much.
