    Notes

      It is noted in family records that "she got her foot caught in the sorgum mill
      and got her toes cut off as the sugar went in to the mill."

      History of Beatrice NE

      In 1857 a group of pioneers traveling by steamer up the
      Missouri River from St. Louis to the new Territory of
      Nebraska, organized "The Nebraska Association" and
      selected a committee to "explore Nebraska for the purpose
      of selecting a townsite."

      This committee left the boat at Nebraska City, divided
      themselves into two groups, and set out to find a suitable
      location for the townsite. One group proceeded directly
      west from Nebraska City, passing over the spot where
      Lincoln now stands. The other group traveled in a
      southwesterly direction, and one night made camp on the
      banks of Indian Creek at its junction with the Big Blue River.
      After surveying the beautiful streams and rolling prairie
      surrounding their camp, they decided their quest was at
      an end. The association approved this site at a meeting in
      Omaha on May 20, 1857, and the town was named
      Beatrice in honor of Julia Beatrice Kinney, eldest daughter
      of judge J. F. Kinney, first president of the Nebraska
      Association.

      In 1873, Beatrice was incorporated, and it became a key
      town in the development of Nebraska. By 1895, Beatrice
      had reached the proportions of a flourishing Midwest City,
      and since 1900 has enjoyed a steady growth due to an
      economy well divided between agricultural development
      and manufacturing expansion.

      On January 1, 1863, when the National Homestead Act
      became effective, hundreds of settlers flocked to local
      land offices to file their "claims." Daniel Freeman made the
      first "claim" under the National Homestead Act. The U.S.
      Government purchased the original Freeman homestead
      from his descendants; and on January 3, 1939, it was
      designated as the Homestead National Monument of
      America. The monument is located three and one-half
      miles northwest of Beatrice on State Highway 4. By
      direction of Congress, the monument was dedicated as a
      "proper" memorial emblematical of the hardships and the
      pioneer life through which the early settlers passed in the
      settlement, cultivation, and civilization of the great West.
