John Kindschuh

After an illness of about a month, John Kindschuh died at his home,
six miles south of town, Monday evening, June 28, of pneumonia, at
the age of 75 years and 3 days.

He was born at Gumpelstadt, Saxe-Meinungen, Germany, June 25, 1842.
On November 24, 1868, he was married to Dorothea Elizabeth
Schnittler, and to this union eight children were born, seven of
them in Germany. The children are; Eliza Kriebel, Hooper;
Christiana Koehler, Craig; Henry Kindschuh, Miles City, Mont.;
Maria Heller, Tilden, Nebr.; Anna Ehlman, St. Charles Mo.; Antonia
and Emil, at home; Mrs.  B. J. Meyer, Oakland.

These children and their mother are mourning a devoted husband and
a loving father, one who professed a living belief in Christ and
tried to live according to His precepts.  The widow has been an
invalid for eight or ten years, bedridden most of the time for the
past two years. He leaves also sixteen grandchildren and one great-

Mrs. John Kindschuh

Six weeks and a day from the death of her husband, Mrs. Kindschuh
followed him to the Great Beyond.  As if she had nothing further to
live for, she drooped gradually since then, and literally wasted
away. Her death occurred at the farm home, six miles south of
Oakland, August 10.

Mrs. Kindschuh had been an invalid for fifteen years, bedridden for
the last two and a half years.  Her ailment was bronchitis.  There
never was, say her own, a more patient, uncomplaining sufferer than
she. Whatever she had to bear, she did not wish to burden others
with any recital or evidence of it. And so she sank peacefully to
rest, sustained to the end by her faith in her Savior, a loving
wife and a devoted mother.

Dorothea Elizabeth Schnittler was born December 28, 1846, at
Gumpelstadt, Saxe-Meinungen, Germany.  She was married November 24,
1868, to John Kindschuh.  Eight children, all surviving her, were
born to this union.  They are: Mrs. George Kriebel of Hooper, Mrs.
Herman Koehler of Craig, Henry Kindschuh of Miles City, Mont.; Mrs.
Henry Heller of Tilden, Nebr.; Mrs. John Eklman of St. Charles,
Mo.; Emil and Antonia, at home; Mrs. B. J. Meyer of Oakland.  There
are also sixteen grandchildren and one great grandchild.

Mr. and Mrs. Kindschuh and family immigrated to America in 1886,
arriving at Hooper, Nebr., on October 14 of that year.  The first
winter they lived in the Swaburg neighborhood and then in the
spring moved to the farm that has been the home ever since. Mr.
Kindschuh grew old and six years ago turned the working of the farm
over to his son, Emil, but the old folks continued to live on the

Funeral will be held from the home at 2 o'clock today. The same

her last resting place, and the same minister, the Rev. Julius
Freese of Hooper, will conduct the services.hhw - Oakland

Henry Uehling

Henry Uehling. As one of the native-born sons of Dodge County,
Henry Uehling has lived to see many wonderful changes in the
development of his home community, both in numbers and class of
residents and in importance as an agricultural center.  He was born
November 12, 1862, in Dodge County and is a son of Theodore
Uehling, a pioneer who drove through to this region with a team of

During the period of his boyhood, Henry Uehling was better
acquainted with the Indians than with white people.  The redskins
were peaceable and friendly and frequently stopped at the Uehling
home, where hospitality was extended them by Mrs. Uehling, and this
familiarity did not tend to increase the youth's awe of the
original settlers. Every year tribes of Indians would go west and
north in the fall, on hunting expeditions, and in the spring would
return to their camps, so that there was almost a constant
procession of the tribes coming and going. There were very few
settlers, the Uehling home eight miles north of Clark's Creek being
the first house reached from that point. With no fences, when the
early settlers desire to go anywhere they merely took the shortest
route.  Omaha was the closest city of any size, and it required
three days to make the journey to that place, but of necessity all
the grain was hauled there, as the nearest mills where at De Soto
and Fort Calhoun.  After the railroad was built to Fremont, that
place became the destination and distribution point of the early

The education of Mr. Uehling was acquired in the public schools of
Dodge County, and as a youth and young man was associated in
farming with his father.  When he reached the age of twenty-five
years he embarked upon operations of his own, first on his father's
eighty-acre farm and later on eighty acres of his own.  From this
modest beginning he has extended his activities to cover farming
and stock raising on 600 acres of land, all located in Logan
Township. He is engaged in general farming and devotes a good
portion of his time to raising of thoroughbred live stock,
including Jersey hogs and Percheron horses.  His labors have been
attended by satisfactory results and he is regarded as one of the
most substantial and prosperous farmers of his county.  While
energetic and progressive, he is nevertheless careful and
systematic in his methods of operation, and his farm is one of he
most productive and profitable in this section.  He and Mrs.
Uehling are members of the Lutheran Church, and as fraternalist is
affiliated with the Masons.  While he devotes his attention
unreservedly to his farm, he is not indifferent to the duties of
citizenship, and a number of years ago served his township in the
capacity of treasurer.

Mr. Uehling was married in 1886 to Miss Marquerite Snyder, daughter
of John and Barbara (Krueger) Snyder, settlers of 1874 in Burt
County, Nebraska, who are now living in retirement at Scott's
Bluff. There were seven children in the Snyder family; one who died
in infancy, Peter, Adam, Marguerite, Andrew, Conrad and Marie
deceased.  Four children have been born to Mr. and Mrs. Uehling:
Arthur, who is engaged in farming in Dodge County; and Ira, Marie
and Ernest, at home.

Ludwig Uehling

Ludwig Uehling. A member of that old and substantial family of
Uehlings, who from pioneer days to the present have been decided
factors in the agriculture, business and civic affairs of Dodge and
Washington counties, Ludwig Uehling has applied his efforts almost
entirely to farming, and in that vocation has achieved most
substantial success, at the same time winning the confidence and
trust of his home community. His farm and home are in section 10 of
Logan Township.

Mr. Uehling was born near Hooper in Washington County November 8,
1865, a son of Theodore Uehling, a prominent pioneer for whom the
town of Uehling was named.  A sketch of Theodore Uehling and family
is found on other pages.  Ludwig Uehling attended some of the
pioneer schools of eastern Nebraska, but the best lessons were
those he learned by practical contact with the land and with men.
He was strong, self-reliant and ambitious and soon after reaching
manhood had acquired some lands for himself.  He married at the age
of thirty, and since then has given a quarter of a century to the
general farming and stockraising. He has always favored good stock,
and his efforts have served to advance the standards of livestock
in his section.  His farm contains a herd of ten registered
Holstein cattle.  He also keeps a good grade of horses. His farm
represents a growing business and a substantial degree of
prosperity, all of which has been won from a very modest start. In
a public way he has served his township as treasurer two years and
for many years as treasurer of the school board. In politics he is
a republican.

In 1895 Mr. Uehling married a daughter of Henry Von Seggern.  To
their marriage have been born five children: Mrs. Alma Osterloh,
Edna, Orville, Windsor and Kenneth.

Death Sunday of Mrs. L. Uehling

Coming as a shock to this community on Sunday was the news of the
death of Mrs. Ludwig Uehling, who several weeks ago underwent a
major operation at the Dodge County Community hospital from which
she was making satisfactory recovery with promise of being ready
for dismissal within a day or two   

Apparently some unforeseen and unexpected complication arose during
Saturday night and her family was called to her bedside by an early
Sunday morning message.  Death resulted within a few hours.

Matilda Ann Uehling, daughter of the late Henry and Sophie Von
Seggern, was born north of Hooper Jan. 30, 1874, and passed away
Sept. 16, 1945, aged 71 years, 7 months and 16 days. She was united
in marriage to Ludwig Uehling on Oct. 19, 1894, and the couple made
their home on a farm north of Hooper until 1934 when they retired
to live in Fremont and later in Uehling for the next ten years,
coming to Hooper to make their home with their daughter, Mrs. Alma
Osterloh, in the fall of 1943. Last October Mr. and Mrs. Uehling
observed their golden wedding anniversary.

Old Settler Passes Away

Mr. Theodore Uehling at Uehling Gone to His Final Reward. Was a
Pioneer of the County

Tuesday morning February 13th, word came to Hooper that Mr.
Theodore Uehling, who has been in poor health several years and was
taken seriously ill a week ago last Monday, had passed away at his
home in Uehling at 9:37 o'clock.

All that loving hands, doctors and trained nurses could do, had
been done, but the Divine Father had willed that he should pass on
to that undiscovered country from whose bourne no traveler

His demise was peaceful and quiet and as he called his loved ones
to his bedside for a last farewell, it must have been a wonderful
consolation to him to know that his children had grown to manhood
and womanhood and were all well to do and comfortably located in
homes of their own, that his life had been one that they look back
upon with pride and that on the accumulation of this world's goods
he had been successful to a large degree.

Mr. Theodore Uehling was born in Saxe-Meininger, Germany, 1836. In
1847 at the age of eleven years he came to Dodge county, Wisconsin.
On January 2nd, 1860, he was united in marriage with Miss Katherine
Schwab, who came to America in 1855 with her parents from Germany.
It was in May 1860, that he and his young wife left Wisconsin
traveling by ox team and arrived in Omaha July 2nd of that year.
They settled on Section 18, township 19, range 9, which in those
days was a part of Washington county but now belongs to Dodge
county. He homesteaded the land when the homestead act was passed
and lived on the place sixteen years, where he built a log house
and covered it with slough grass, which was used until 1870 when he
built frame buildings. He acquired by purchase the old home place
that joins Uehling on the east, where the family resided until he
built their modern home in the village of Uehling where they have
since resided.

In earlier days, Mr. Uehling was identified with the banking
interests of Hooper, was a member of Hooper Lodge No. 72, A. F. &
A. M., but after the town of Uehling was laid out on his farm land,
he moved to that place and has been actively identified with many
of the larger interests of that town. At the time of his death he
was president of the Uehling Townsite Co., vice-president of the
Uehling Hardware Co., and in earlier days has held positions of
trust with the gift of the people in the community in which he
resided. He built the elevator at Uehling now owned by the Farmers
Elevator Co., and the brick block occupied by the State Bank and
the Uehling Hardware Co.

He had the honor of being a charter member of Oakland Lodge No. 91,
A. F. & A. M. and it will be under the auspices of that
organization that the funeral services will be held at the home
Friday at one o'clock.

Besides his aged wife deceased leaves seven sons, two daughters and
a large number of other relatives and friends. The children are:
Otto, living 6 miles northwest of Uehling, Henry, 2 miles east of
that town, Ed., connected with the Townsite Co. and cashier of the
Uehling State Bank, Ludwig, lives on his farm adjoining the town,
M. A., resides north of Hooper; Fred is a member of the Uehling
Hardware Co., Frank is on the old home farm; Mrs. Jess Golder,
lives one mile east of Uehling and Mrs. Joel Preston, two miles
north of Oakland. Theodore was drowned when about seven years of

Theodore Uehling

History of the Elkhorn Valley 1892 
Page 425

Theodore Uehling, of Section 2, Logan township, came to Dodge
County in July, 1860, and located on Section 18, township 19, range
9, where he built a log-house and covered it with slough grass.
This with the same kind of shedding for his stock served him until
1870, when he provided better buildings. He remained on that place
sixteen years and in 1870 bought eighty acres, on Section 3, the
same being Union Pacific Railroad land. He bought and traded land
in various shapes, doing the necessary improvement, to make each
tract valuable: finally traded his old home farm for a farm of one
hundred and sixty acres on Section 3, and kept adding to his landed
estate, until he now owns nine hundred and sixty acres of well
improved land. When he came to the country he was obliged to go to
Omaha for the necessities of life. He used to make the trip with ox
teams, leaving his family at the mercy of the semi-savage Indians.
Great were the hardships he and his family endured, in order that
they might possess the goodly heritage, a portion of the Elkhorn
Valley.  Our subject was one of the few who remained until the
storms of adversity had passed over, and was the gainer thereby.

Mr. Uehling was born in Germany, January, 11, 1836, and is the son
of Casper and Gotliebetta (Deusing) Uehling.  His parents, dying
when he was very young, left a family of six children: Frederick,
Casper, Otto, Caroline, Louisa, and Theodore.

In 1847 our subject, then eleven years of age, came with his
brother Frederick and family to Dodge County, Wisconsin, and from
there to Nebraska. Frederick died in Wisconsin, September 18, 1892.
Theodore was united in marriage January 2, 1860, to Catharine
Schwab, the daughter of Henry and Catharine Schwab, natives of
Germany, whose four children were: Catharine, Jacob, Adam and

Our subject and his wife are the parents of the following children:
Otto, November 1, 1860; Henry, November 12, 1861; Edward, March 13,
1863; Lewis, November 8, 1864; Theodore, January 20, 1867, now
deceased; Martin, August 20, 1869; Frederick ,November 4, 1873;
Lanore, December 19, 1875; Frank, October 26, 1878; Louisa F., June
6, 1880.

Politically, our subject affiliates with the Democratic party, and
in his church relations is a Lutheran. He belongs to Oakland,
Masonic Lodge No. 72. He has been one of the school board for
twenty years, and has held other local offices. He erected his
present house in 1882, which is one of the best in all this

In the reviewing of this man's life we see what can be accomplished
by energetic men with willingness to do and do well.  Coming to
this country as he did an orphan boy at the age of eleven years,
battling in life for himself and finally making the success he has,
both in a financial and social way, to much credit cannot be placed
upon his career.

Married Fifty Years

Mr. and Mrs. Theodor Uehling of Uehling, Nebraska, Celebrate Their
Golden Wedding.

(We are indebted to Editor Honney of the Uehling Press for the cuts
used in this article.) Editor Sentinel,

Mr. and Mrs. Theodor Uehling celebrated their Golden Wedding
anniversary Saturday evening at their palatial residence on Fifth
street. Surrounded by all their children they passed one of the
most enjoyable events of their lives. It is an event that comes to
but few couples to pass fifty years of wedded life passing thru the
many trials and hardships incident to their early life on the
Nebraska prairies, and emerge from them in strong healthy state
with prospects of enjoying many years more of the comforts of this
life, which they so richly deserved.

Mr. and Mrs. Theodor Uehling have enjoyed the highest respect and
esteem of their host of friends and neighbors. They have raised a
large family in this community, all of whom reached maturity, but
one Theodor who departed this life in early boyhood, and everyone
of them are an honor and a comfort to this worthy couple in their
declining years. Those present were Mr. and Mrs. Otto Uehling, of
Oakland, Mr. and Mrs. Henry Uehling, Mr. and Mrs. Edward Uehling,
Mr. and Mrs. Ludwig Uehling, Mr. and Mrs. Martin A. Uehling of
Hooper, Fred J. Uehling, Mrs. and Mrs. S. Golder and Mr. and Mrs.
Frank Uehling, Mr. and Mrs. J. F. Preston of Oakland.

The presents were valuable and highly appreciated by the parents.

Mr. Theodor Uehling was born in Saxe-Meininger, Germany, 1836. In
1847 at the age of eleven years he came to Dodge county, Wisconsin.
On January 2nd, 1860, he was united in marriage to Miss Katherine
Schwab, who came to America in 1855, with her parents from Germany.
It was in May 1860, that he and his young wife left Wisconsin
traveling by ox team and arrived in Omaha July 2nd of that year.

and covered it with slough grass, which was used until 1870 when he
built frame buildings. He acquired by purchase the old home place
that joins Uehling on the east, where the family resided until he
built their modern home on Fifth street, and has been highly
successful as a farmer and stockman, having acquired several fine
farms by hard work and economy. When they arrived in Nebraska,
their worldly possessions were two yoke of oxen a wagon and $150 in
money. The young couple were of the hardy stock of Germany and were
determined to make a home, and few have done better than they, and
have much to be thankful for, as both are enjoying very good

Mr. Uehling has held different positions of trust in this community
and now is connected with some of our best institutions, being
President of the Uehling Townsite Co., Vice-President of the
Farmers State Bank, and President of the Uehling Hardware Co. He
has the honor of being a charter member of Oakland Lodge No. 91, A.
F. & A. M. At former times he was connected with the banking
institutions at Hooper and Oakland. After our little city was built
he transferred his interests here, and has put forth every effort
to make Uehling what it ought to be, one of the best towns in the
country, having built the large brick block, occupied by the
Farmers State Bank, the Uehling Hardware Co., on the first floor
and one of the finest lodge rooms in the county on the second

The Press joins their host of friends in wishing them many more
years of wedded life to enjoy the fruits of their labors.hhw

History of Dodge and Washington Counties, Nebraska and Their People
Volume II,

Theodore Uehling

Theodore Uehling. Sixty years ago when Dodge County was still part
of the original Washington, one of the important accessions to the
citizenship of the district was the late Theodore Uehling, who
during a long life became prominent as a Nebraska pioneer and a man
fitted by character, industry and integrity to adorn the annuals of
early settlement.

Born in Saxe Meiningen, Germany, January 11, 1836, son of Casper
and Gottliebetta (Deusing) Uehling, German farmers who died when
Theodore was young, he had a limited attendance at the common
schools of his native land until 1847, when at the age of eleven
years he came to America with his older brother, Frederick, who
located in Wisconsin. Theodore grew to manhood in Wisconsin and
achieved American citizenship there. In May, 1860, shortly after
his marriage he left Wisconsin with an ox team, and after many
days' journey reached Omaha on the second of July. From Omaha they
came up into what was then Washington County, and settled in
section 18, township 19, range 9. When Dodge County was set off
from old Washington County, his location fell in the former
division. After the passage of the Homestead Act he homesteaded his
property and gave his labors to its development for eighteen years.
Though he came to Nebraska with only a wagon, two yoke of oxen and
$150 in money, he was able to see his affairs prosper and
everything he touched respond to the benefit of himself or his
community. He proved a true friend of education, serving as school
director for a number of years, and in 1891 was elected supervisor
of Logan Township.

January 2, 1860, Theodore Uehling married Miss Kathrina Schwab, a
native of Germany, who came to the United States in 1855.  The
children born to their union were Otto, Henry, Edward, Ludwig,
Theodore, deceased, Martin A., Frederick J., Leonora L., Frank
Theo. and Louise F. Most of the living sons have special sketches
in this publication.

Theodore Uehling after acquiring American citizenship allied
himself with the democratic party and cast his vote true to that
allegiance until 1897, after which he was equally stanch in his
support of the republican ticket. He was a Mason and a member of
the Lutheran Church.

When in 1905 the Sioux City and Western Railroad built through his
farm he accepted the opportunity and laid out a town, which bears
the name of this honored pioneer. He had seen the little community
grow to considerable proportions before his death, which occurred
February 13, 1912, at the age of seventy-six years, one month, two

Pioneer Woman of This Vicinity Dies at Uehling

Mrs. Katherine Uehling, 89, one of the few real pioneer women of
this vicinity and county, and widow of the man after whom the
village of Uehling was named died at her home in Uehling, at 4
o'clock Saturday afternoon following a lengthy illness. She had
been seriously ill for several days. For several years she had been
an invalid and for the past four years was able to get about only
in a wheel chair. For the past two weeks she had been confined to
her bed in a critical condition.

Mrs. Uehling, who before her marriage was Katherine Schwab, was one
of the earliest settlers of this locality. She was born at
Dellfeld, Rhein Platz, Bavaria, Germany, on Feb. 28, 1839. In 1855
she came to the United States with her parents, the family settling
in Dodge County, Wisconsin.

On Jan. 2, 1860 she was united in marriage to Theodore Uehling and
in the following May they left Wisconsin in an ox team to establish
their residence in the new country in Nebraska. After a journey
which took a couple of months they arrived in this county, taking a
homestead a few miles north of the present site of Hooper.

They remained on the homestead until 1876, when they moved to
another farm located on what is now the site of the village of
Uehling. Mr. Uehling continued farming until 1906 when he retired
and they moved to the town bearing their name to make their home.
Mr. Uehling died in 1912. After his death Mrs. Uehling continued to
make her residence there.

In her long residence in this community Mrs. Uehling became very
widely known and she and her family were among the pioneers who
were instrumental in forwarding the growth of the county and making
it the prosperous section it is today. She was a woman beloved by
all her many friends and they join with her family in mourning her

Surviving are nine sons and daughters, Otto and Mrs. J. F. Preston
of Oakland, Henry, Edward, Mrs. J. S. Golder, Fred J. and Frank T.
of Uehling, and Martin A. of Hooper, 38 grandchildren and 11 great
