Memories of My Grandfather & Grandmother Wagner
By Rosalie Pueppke Schafersman

The Stecher hill was covered with Indian tents.  An Indian lady
taught my grandmother how to cut and sew from a pattern made with a
string or cord.  For instance, she measured sleeve length, neck to
shoulder -tied a knot and then sleeve length and waist -also skirt
length -all by tying knots.  The Indian lady was called Omaha Mary.
She spoke English and was from the Omaha Tribe.

Grandfather drove his oxen to Omaha for supplies (Approx 50 miles).
It took him 2 days. At night he stopped to rest beside the road,
built a bonfire to keep the wolves away.

One instance Grandmother made potato pancakes for Grandfather.  Two
Indian ladies were visiting Grandma.  They ate the pancakes nearly
as fast as Grandmother baked them. Grandfather returned from his
long trip to Omaha and asked, "Is this all the dough you have
left?" She said, "Yes", Indian ladies said, "Heap a good".

On another trip Grandfather bought bib overalls for himself.  On
the way home an Indian was walking and wanted a ride.  Grandfather
teased him - drove father - stopped and left him walk again.
Finally felt sorry for him, so stopped and waited for him.  When
they got home the bib overalls were gone. Next morning here comes
the Indian dressed in the overalls and smiling.  He did return
them.

I well remember my days with Grandmother.  She owned a a grey horse
and drove to visit her children for a week or so. She told me to go
back home with her.  When we got to her house, she placed the lines
in my hands and said "Now you take 'Jim' (horse) home -he is yours.
I will not need him anymore." In 2 weeks she had a stroke and died.
This was in 1913.  Her funeral was at Logan Creek Church which we
all attended.

Mrs. George Kriebel and my mother taught Sunday School. My father
walked to church when it was cold and started fire in the stove.
Our Pastor drove out from Hooper with a horse & buggy.

Our special event was the Christmas Program.  Joe Stecher and my
Dad always put up the tree with real candles.  Did they ever watch
the candles!  They had a pail of water with a sponge in the end of
a ten foot stick to put out the candles that were burning low.

My Dad made a 3-tiered candelabra which was lit on Christmas Eve.
The first tier was 3 foot in diameter, the second was 2 feet, and
the last was 1 foot in diameter.  It was beautiful when all 3 tiers
were lit.

Note - These memories were typed from a hand written copy given to
me by Marian Schafersman Moseman in September, 1992. The authors's
Grandfather is George Wagner Jr. and the author's Grandmother is
Rosena Uehling Wagner.  Her father is John Pueppke, and her mother

The Hooper Sentinel 
November 1, 1900

George Wagner was born in Germany, June 12, 1836, and died at his
home near Hooper, Tuesday, Oct. 30, 1900 of cancer of the stomach.

The news of Mr. Wagner's death was a painful surprise to his
friends, many of whom were not aware of his sickness, which only
lasted about a week.

George Wagner came to the United States with his parents when but
15 years of age.  The family first settled near Cleveland, Ohio,
removing from there to Wisconsin.  In 1861 Mr. Wagner came to
Nebraska and filed on a piece of government land and which is now a
part of his old homestead.  In 1862 he enlisted in Co. A 2d
Nebraska Cavalry and with his regiment was sent northwest to guard
the frontier settlements against the Indians.  After eleven months
service the regiment was mustered out of service and he returned to
his Dodge County farm. As one of the pioneer settlers he
experienced the vicissitudes and privations of the early days of
the country, but his confidence in the state of his adoption never
failed. In 1864 he was married to Miss Rosa Uehling.  To them were
born nine children, eight of whom are now living.  They are Edmund
and John, of Oklahoma City, Rosa, now Mrs. John Pueppka, of
Sommeville, Albert, Louis, George, Frank and Charles.

In his family Mr. Wagner was a kind husband and an indulgent
father, while as a friend and neighbor the was ever loyal and
accommodating. He was a member of the Logan German Lutheran church,
and the funeral services will be conducted from that church at 1
o'clock this afternoon, Rev. Walter officiating.

The interment will be in the cemetery near the church.hhw

Page 671

George Wagner, Jr., one of the highly respected citizens of Hooper
township, residing on Section 11, came to Dodge County in June,
1861, over three decades ago.  He first located on the place he now
occupies.  He filed on Government land, and at once commenced
improving it; he built a log house 16x20 feet, in which he lived
for thirteen years, and then built his present residence. His farm
is supplied with a good class of buildings through out, it also has
a fine orchard of two hundred trees, and a good grove, which he
planted at an early day.  He now has six hundred and forty acres of
land, one-half of which is under cultivation.  He has lived on this
place continually, since he effected his settlement in 1861.  In
October, 1862, he enlisted in Company A, Second Nebraska Cavalry
under Captain Peter S. Reed, and was mustered in at Florence;
served in the Border campaign eleven months and was discharged at
Omaha, after eleven months.  It was his ill fortune to live in the

George and Christena Wagner, natives of Germany, whose five
children were: Christena (deceased), George Jr., William, August,

in New York, and from there went to Cleveland, Ohio, where he
worked at the carpenter's trade.  In 1856 the family moved to
Wisconsin, and remained there until they moved to Dodge County,
Nebraska.  He received a common school education.

He was united in marriage in August, 1864, to Rosa Uehling,
daughter of John and Eliza, Uehling, natives of Germany, whose
fourteen children were: Margaret, Andrew, Eliza, Odelia (deceased),
Oswald, Barbara, Christena, Rosa, John, Martin, Elizabeth,
Frederick, Henrietta (deceased), Catharine.

Our subject and his wife have the following children: Eliza
(deceased), born May 8, 1865; Edmund, born June 12, 1867; Rosa,
born August 21, 1869; John, born April 7, 1872; Albert, born
