+++++ HOMESTEADING +++++
From "Keya Paha Co, NE 100 Years 1885-1985 978.262 H673 page 12:
"The great movement of settlers was helped by the changes in the land laws.
A settler in 1854 could take 160 acres and, after living on it six months,
could buy it from the United States for $1.25 and acre. In 1863, the Homestead Law had gone into effect. This act made it possible for a settler to take 160 acres and have it free by living upon it for five years. In 1873 the Timber Claim Act was passed. Under the terms of this act, one could get 160 acres by planting ten acres of it to trees, and taking care of them for eight years. All three of these laws were in force from 1873-1891, and under them a settler could get 480 acres of land in a few years. The Kinkaid law went into effect in 1904. This act was passed mainly for settlement of the sandhill area of our state. This act allowed the settlers 640 acres of land because the usual 160 acres would not support a family."

DWS: From the "Orchard News" Friday Sept. 30, 1921.
"Southeast of Orchard .. Last Wednesday, the 21st of Sept. was Grandpa Rice's 97th birthday and about 45 of his relatives and friends surprised him by going to help him celebrate. The best of it was they brought their lunch baskets well filled and the table fairly groaned with good things to eat especially fried chicken. There were four of his children, eleven grandchildren and twelve great grandchildren present. After dinner they adjourned to an open space where they had mens foot races, ladies foot races, and ball game and other amusements. Next a feast on ripe watermelon then to finish up the day for the young people they tripped the light fantastic toe till the early hours and all went home thinking it was a good thing that Grandpa Rice had had a birthday."
**************************************************
DWS: From the "Orchard News" Friday October 14, 1921. OBIT
"James Austin Rice, without a doubt the oldest person in this county passed
away at the home of his son, William, southeast of Orchard, Tuesday afternoon, October 11. He had been lame for a number of years and was forced to get about with aid of crutches, and this together with his age had retired him from manual labor a number of years.
He was born September 21, 1824 in the state of Massachusetts and at the age of 23 years was united in marriage with Clara Clark, who also resided in that state. Ten years afterward they moved to Illinois then to Iowa and in the year of 1882 moved to Antelope county locating on a homestead on Antelope Creek, south of Clearwater, where the family resided until about 19 years ago when they moved to the place now occupied by William Rice, southeast of town.
He leaves to mourn his death five sons, three daughters, 33 grandchildren and 51 great grandchildren. The children are: George, Charley and William, of this place, John and Frank, of Beatrice, Mesdames, J. Ludwick, of Omaha, J. Trease, of Kellogg, Iowa, and Emma Gurnsey, of Clearwater.
The funeral services were held at the home Thursday afternoon at two o'clock conducted by Rev. H. H. Spracklen, and interment made in the Orchard cemetery beside his wife who preceded him about ten years."

Note:Looking at the certified copy of the death certificate shows the Doctor filling it out on the following April 29, 1922.

"Jonathan Meyers Ludwick was born in Ripley Co, IN, on Dec. 22nd, 1840. He was united in marriage to Harriett R. Burr, on Dec. 22nd, 1862. At the beginning of the Civil War he enlisted serving in Company I, 11th Indiana Infantry until the close of the war. In 1869 he moved to Jasper county, IA, residing there until 1888, when he moved to Antelope Co, NE. During the year 1891 his beloved wife and companion passed away. When Tripp county was opened for settlement he filed on a homestead, where he resided until about 5 years ago when he went to live with his daughter, Mrs. L.A. Holbrook, near Orchard, NE.
He leaves to mourn his departure three daughters and five sons as follows:
Mrs. C.B. Cook of Anadarka, OK; Mrs. L.A. Holbrook and Mrs. G.W. Rice of near Orchard; Will and Silas, of Oregon; Wilson and Joe of Montana and George, of SD. Also 57 grand children and 38 great grandchildren and 3 sisters.

DWS: From a newsclipping: (It is probably from a Tripp County SD newspaper about Dec 24, 1924)
"The Passing of Jonathan Ludwick
The many friends of "Grandpa" Jonathan M. Ludwick will be grieved to know that he answered "taps" at his home in Orchard, Neb., on December 3rd. Burial took place in the Clearwater cemetery on the 5th.
Mr. Ludwick was born in Ripley county, Indiana on December 22, 1840, and was married to Harriet R. Burr on December 22, 1862. At the beginning of the the civil war he enlisted in Company I, Indiana Infantry, and he was a thorough patriot at all times. He moved to Jasper county, Iowa, in 1869, and in 1888 to Antelope county, Nebraska. Not content with his early pioneering experiences, Mr. Ludwick filed on land adjacent to the townsite of McNeely and was one of the early settlers of Tripp county, and will be remembered as owning the old McNeely livery barn, now the Colome Theatre building. He later sold the homestead, but had to take title again, and he has visited this county several times in the past five years, the last time being in October of the present year. While here the last time Mr. Ludwick said he expected to further improve his place and hoped to return next spring to start work.
He is survived by three daughters and five sons: Mrs. C. B.Cook of Anadark, Okla.; Mrs. L. A. Holbrook and Mrs. G. W. Rice of Orchard, Neb.; Will and Silas, of Oregon; Wilson and Joseph of Montana and George, of Winner, S. D.
It was always a pleasure to visit with this fine old gentleman and despite his years of hardship and toil, his memory was very keen. He enjoyed telling how Warren G. Harding's family and the Ludwicks were old neighbors, how old Dr. Harding came to visit them when they were ill and of Eliza Ann, sister of the late President Harding, in whom Mr. Ludwick was quite interested when the Civil War broke out and who died before he returned home.
The Times and its readers and the many friends of Mr. Ludwick extend sympathy to the sons and daughters in the loss of so splendid a father."

Dr Clarence Edward Rice

From Doug W Schueths (DWS)
"Became surgeon and opened a private hospital in Odell, NE in Southern Gage County East of Fairbury. In visiting older farmers in the area the author found that he was very well liked and respected. "He charged so very little for his services that it was a wonder he had any money at all. He built a new home for his private nurse, Olga Blanky, a large woman who could lift a man to the operating table herself. This home was built in Odell." as per Delbert Rockemann living 2 west and 3 south of Beatrice 10/1991 to the author. The hospital still stands in Odell at the East side of the North end of town and is now apartments.

DWS: OBIT from "Fairbury Daily News" 7/8/1963
"Dr Clarence Edward Rice passed away at his home near Fairbury July 4. Funeral services were conducted at the Vance Funeral Chapel in Odell with the Rev. D. E. Littrell of the FAirbury Methodist Church officiating. The IOOF Lodge conducted final rites in Lincoln Memorial Park at Lincoln at 10:00 a.m. Monday, July 6.
Dr. Rice attended York College, York, Nebraska and was graduated from the University of Nebraska in 1921. He took his internship at the Methodist Hospital in Omaha and began his practice of medicine in Odell, in 1922.
He is survived by his wife , Irene, his son Dr. Lee Rice of Boulder, CO, one grand daughter and four brothers; Floyd of Fairbury, Elva of Clearwater, Roy of Winner, SD and Lester of Evanston, Illinois."
**************************************************
DWS: From "Gage Co. History" Taylor Publishing 978.244 G12c Ca 1983: "DR. C.E.
RICE.. Sunday, September 18, 1949 was a big day for Dr. and Mrs. C.E. Rice of Odell who were honored on 'Appreciation Day' when around twenty-five hundred people gathered at the high school grounds to show their appreciation for them.
Dr. J.C. Waddell of Beatrice then spoke in behalf of the Gage County Medical Society.
A response was given by Dr. and Mrs. Rice in appreciation of the thoughtfulness of their friends of the community for the honor bestowed on them.
A picture was also taken of Joyce Mahman of Hollenburg, Kansas the only one of the tiny triplets born at the hospital in 1939 that lived. Joyce weighed thirty-two ounces at birth and spent five and one half months at the hospital in an incubator.
Dr. Clarence E. Rice was reared on a farm near Orchard, Nebraska. He graduated from High School in the year 1912 and the following two years taught a rural school. He attended York College and later was Superintendent of Schools in Lushton for two years. He entered the University of Nebraska in 1917 and graduated with the Class of 1921. After completing his medical training he located in Odell in January of 1922.
On May 6, 1922 he was married to Irene Dredla of Crete, who had on that same day received her Degree N.R. graduating from the Omaha Methodist School of Nursing.
His first office was upstairs in the Hind's Bank Building. Two years later it was moved to the Hotel Building where it remained for three years.
The Odell General Hospital owned by Dr. Rice was completed in 1929. Of brick construction, it was pleasing to the eye and thoroughly practical. Occupying a prominent corner on main street, the attractive hospital never failed to draw comments from visitors, surprised at such an institution in a small town. This eleven bed hospital also had a modern surgery, nursery, examining room, supply room, office and waiting room.
Mrs. Rice was the hospital Superintendent.
At first Dr. and Mrs. Rice lived in the hospital, but in 1939 a new wing was added for living quarters, thus leaving all the original building for hospital purposes.
The hospital was equipped with every modern device, and many of Nebraska's leading surgeons have made use of the operating room and other equipment. The number of mothers taking advantage of the hospital was increasing every year. Over two thousand babies had been delivered by Dr. Rice in this community.
Miss Olga Blanke who began work in the hospital in 1929 was housekeeper, operating assistant and x-ray technician. She was known as just Olga to the whole community.
Dr. Rice and Mrs. Rice's only son Lee, a graduate of the University of Omaha, Class of 1949, served his internship at Indiana Medical Center, Indianapolis, Indiana.
The people of Odell and the surrounding community are indeed grateful and fortunate to have had their health's needs taken care of adequately, by Dr. and Mrs. Rice and the Odell General Hospital.
Dr. Rice passed away July 4, 1963, practicing until his death."

"Living in Winner S.D. 1992.

From "LIFE STORY OF ROY RICE WRITTEN IN 1983"...
"I was born November 19, 1901 to George and Mary (Ludwick) Rice, who lived on a rented farm two miles east and a half mile north of Orchard, Nebraska. Then in 1902 they moved to town for a short time. In 1903 they bought a quarter section of land two miles east of town on what was later Highway #20, which they improved quite well and where we grew up and attended rural school, which was a mile and half east of our place.
I rode a blind Morgan pacer horse to school some days as we had a barn at the rural school house. One noon I rode him to a neighbors place to get some water, he stepped in a hole - off I went over his head - then he come on and stepped on me skinning and bruising me up pretty bad.
We depended on horses for farming and transportation, too, in those days. We generally had one or two horses for riding or driving - were real proud we got a new two seat spring wagon and could go to church on Sundays in town.
My Dad would sometimes stay home while the rest of us went to Church, and have a good dinner ready when we got back. He could bake a good cake - not from a package either. He was a good cook too.
There were six of us boys so we had some pretty good fights. So Dad in order to keep us from getting bruised up too bad bought a couple pairs of boxing gloves and saw to it we put them on till we cooled off.
We played a lot of baseball in school and out. Each of us had certain chores to do. some of us would take care of the horses and some would help Dad with the milking while Mother got breakfast. She was quite provoked when she caught us playing ball behind the barn while Dad was milking and she was waiting on us to come to eat.
In those early years on the farm we would take some of the earliest picked corn to the Hering Mill to have it ground for corn meal. Also wheat, which the miller would take out so much for making flour. We would come home with flour and corn meal that would last most of the year. I helped rebuild the washed out Hering Mill race in 1918.
We attended High School in Orchard, walked or jogged it each day two miles, which kept us in good condition. Had good baseball and basketball teams - tooksecond place in our class in the Lincoln tournament one year. Then I played with the Norfolk business college one season.
In 1921 I had to miss a year of school as my oldest brother, Clarence, was finishing Medical School and I was needed at home to help with the farm work. My folks had to sell one quarter of land that year to help him through school and to pay costly doctor bills for my brother, Lewis, who died his eleventh year.
After finishing High School in 1922, I worked at home and for a near neighbor for three years. it was a pleasure to work for Mr. Smythe as he had big spirited horses and good equipment and I could do good field work. He remarked to my Dad that he could take his rifle and shoot the tassel off every stalk of corn in an eighty rod row. I think he exaggerated somewhat.
I attended the Norfolk Business College in 1922, which helped me considerable in later life.
On July 19, 1925 Oma Lushbough and I, who had been going together for two or three years, decided we could tolerate each other on a permanent basis so we were married in her home on a very hot Sunday afternoon between two Chautauqua programs. The next day we cut cockleburs out of the corn rows. (Some honeymoon!!)
We lived with Oma's sister, Hazel, in Orchard driving to the farm most every day till Spring. Then my Mother, who had (with her sister) inherited Grandpa Ludwick's quarter section of land west of Colome, S.D., near McNeely Grove, decided to buy her Sister's share of we would move on the place. So we agreed to give it a try.
Grandpa Ludwick was a Civil War veteran and drew number for allotment when the area was opened up for settlement. He raised purebred horses on the farm, and we would spend the winter months with my Mother and her sister till spring opened up, then go back to the farm. He was injured in the War, and had a hunch on his side from bayonet charge. He had Rheumatiz, which I massaged with olive oil each night before his going to bed.
We pioneered to the farm near McNeely Townsite, which had been laid out for a town and had started business places, but they were soon abandoned when the railroad was rerouted to go to Winner direct from Colome.
We had very little to start with - a team of horses, four milk cows that I led behind the flat rack from Orchard. Got along good until I would come to a bridge - then the cows would balk and I would have to nearly drag them across. Made the 135 miles in five days. Oma drove up in the Model T coupe - took her about 5 hours as the roads were not surfaced then and pretty sandy between Spencer and O'Neill.
There was a creek just about a block south of the house on the farm. So we plowed up a garden spot between the house and the creek and raised all kinds of vegetables and potatoes and sold some.
Soon after we arrived at the farm, friends of Oma's parents came out from Dallas, S.D. to help us get settled. He was a carpenter. We decided to move the outhouse to a different location so put skids under it and hitched the gentlest horse to it, and when he saw that coming behind him, he got so scared he reared up and come over backward lighting on the harness hames dead as a doornail. I didn't know horses had heart attacks.
There we were with only one horse and he couldn't pull the dead one away so we had to borrow a horse from a neighbor, which we later bought. Neighbors were real helpful in those early days. Especially the Spark's family, who lived less than a mile from us, and helped us so much in getting started. The grasshopper scourge and the black cloud dust storm days were a real challenge to us and most everyone else. But we came through and had better times soon.
Our three children attended the country school, which was a couple of miles from home. They had good teachers, who were paid 40 to 60 dollars a month, and were paid in warrants which were discounted if they could find a buyer. I served on the school board, Township board, and was Township assessor one year while on the farm.
In the McNeely area there is a lot of sub-irrigated land. So we got stuck many times before we learned where we could go and where we couldn't.
The four milk cows bought most of our groceries till fall. Then we cut hay early and took one load to Gregory at $20.00 a ton. Then later baled some more and sent it down to the drayman there. Hay and pasture were good in that area. We baled hay most every year. Some going to Fort Robinson for Calvary horses, and one year we shipped several carloads to a dairy in Indiana. We put up a couple hundred tons of hay each year as we were able to rent three more quarters adjoining ours.
We soon got into the dairy business, starting with those four cows. We sold cream the first years. Still talk of the time we took a 5 gallon can of cream to Winner, got $3.33 for the cream, went over to the Outlaw Store, and groceries for the week came to exactly $3.33. No tax in those early days.
After a few years we built up our dairy herd to 25 to 30 head. So sold bulk milk to Sawyer's Dairy, and sweet cream to Rawsons Ice Cream Plant, which they used for ice cream bars. Bad roads gave us trouble in the winter. One whole week when it snowed so much we couldn't get to town because of drifted roads, we had to dump the milk.
Soon after pheasants were introduced to our area, we had some real good hunting seasons. No restrictions like now. Our relatives would come and we would have meat for most of the winter. That soon became commercialized and spoiled for the local people.
The government had a ranch program after the dust storm and depression days which we were reluctant to try for, but were persuaded to try for it. We had the minimum of 640 acres in our unit, which met the requirements as explained to us. So when fall came and others were getting their checks, I went in to find out about ours. They said we had not qualified as we needed a building site in addition to the 640 acres. Farm programs had no appeal to us after that.
For recreation we had house dances and card parties, which were usually on Saturday nights, and sometimes lasted till the wee hours. We went to the Methodist Church in Colome. Then after church the kids really liked to go to Thompsons Drug Store for ice cream sundaes, then to a ball game.
We lost our first child in 1926, then another in 1928. Doctor Carmack was our Doctor and Mable Read was his nurse then. Our other three children, Bernard born in 1927, Doreen in 1929, and Leona in 1931, all enjoyed their early years on the farm.
In the fall of 1943 we decided to move to Winner, leaving the farm mainly because of school as the three children would soon be in High School. I kept my tractor and haying machinery and did custom work and farmed a little. Then took a part-time job as City Assessor, which lasted seven years.
In 1949 our son, Bernard, who was 21 years old and was getting started in the trucking business, was killed in an airplane accident near Bonesteel. He had flown to Sioux City for truck repairs and as it was getting dark he decided to land in Bonesteel and come on home on the morning, When getting ready to come on home, he struck a power line and the plane exploded and he was badly burned. That was a sad event in our family as he left Catherine, his wife, and Helen, a daughter, and son, Alan, who was born soon after that.
In 1947 I started a lumber yard in east Winner, known as Gilbert of Winner, sold lower grades of lumber, then branched off into the oil business. In 1955 when the County Assessment law went into effect, as I had been City Assessor, the County Board persuaded me to stay on as County Assessor. It was a rough job that year setting up the system with insufficient help and small budget. I refused the second year so they hired Mr. Fawkes from Madison, S.D., who stayed on three or four years till his health failed and he passed away.
The Commissioners called me in again in 1960, and I was in the office for eleven years, then decided to retire. That got rather boresome, so I took part-time work inspecting bridges for the County the next summer.
In 1973 the nursing home, which is just across the road from us, needed a maintenance man. I advanced in that job to Superintendent of seating arrangements, which was still fixing toilet seats. There are many things to keep in working order, and after 8 years there, I retired again. Now have two apartments which I look after when the Gregors are gone, as they travel quite a lot since they leased out the home in 1981.
We have been Senior Citizens since 1973, and have been on the official board most of the time since, and have been on the State Board several years in different capacities. Helped build the new Senior Center in 1975-76. Attend most of the activities there - pool, cards and parties. Also try to have a good garden. We still like to dance and try to hit the waltzes and polkas. We visited most of our relatives this year 1983."

School's Senior Senior Marks Town's Changes
BY TODD VON KAMPEN
WORLD-HERALD STAFF WRITER
"It's a rare year when Roy Rice doesn't go home to Orchard, Neb., for the all-class reunion at the school where he met his wife and had a role in the school's best run at a state basketball championship - both 77 years ago.
He's planning to be there again today after a two-year absence. But the 97-year-old Rice, who left Antelope County for South Dakota in 1926, isn't sure he likes the idea of being Orchard High School's oldest living graduate.
"I think I will (enjoy it), but I'll probably be disappointed that there won't be anyone from my class," Rice said from his home in Winner, S.D. "The last time I went, there were only three, and the other two were ill and weren't able to come."
His daughter and son-in-law, Leona and Richard Jacobs, will drive from Sioux City, Iowa, to pick him up. But Rice doesn't need much help otherwise. He lives on his own - his wife, Oma, died five years ago - and gets around without a cane despite some knee trouble.
"When you get my age, you live moderately," he said. "You don't go to any extremes."
Rice has always been resilient, said Richard Jacobs, who remembers finding him "sitting up watching basketball" right after open-heart surgery in 1991 in Sioux Falls, S.D. He described his father-in-law as "what we used to refer to as a gentleman" - someone who always speaks softly and never has used a swear word.
"If everybody was like Roy, we'd have a lot less trouble in the world," Jacobs said.
Rice probably will be recognized as Orchard High's oldest graduate during the 60th annual alumni banquet tonight, said event organizer Kay Williamson. About 265 people were expected to come from as far away as California and Hawaii for the event, which included informal get-togethers Friday and Saturday.
The reunion lets Rice measure changes in the county where the family of his father, George W. Rice, settled in 1882 after moving from Iowa. Roy was born Nov. 19, 1901, on a rented farm two miles east and one-half mile north of Orchard.
Two years later, the family bought a nearby 160-acre farm along current U.S. Highway 20, where Rice grew up. He wrote in a 1983 family history about riding a blind Morgan pacer horse 11/2 miles to school, playing baseball when he and his five brothers should have been milking, and taking corn and wheat to the Hering Mill for grinding.
He was 20 years old when he finally graduated from Orchard High. He nearly was pulled away by World War I, but the war ended eight days before his 17th birthday. He missed a year of school so his brother Clarence could finish medical school, then another year when brother Lewis got sick and died at age 11. Roy couldn't be spared from the farm.
But Rice's senior year of 1921-22 was full of memories. He played center on Orchard's basketball team, which went to the state tournament in Lincoln that year and rolled through three rounds of the Class M bracket, downing Grant, Creston and Orleans.
"We thought we had a cinch on winning first place," he said. But Ashland stopped Orchard's run, winning the final, 11-8.
That was the year that Rice met a new classmate, Oma Lushbough, whose father had moved from Dallas, S.D., and set up a harness and shoe repair shop. Rice left for a semester at Norfolk Business College, then came back to the farm, finding time to go to Oma's house for Sunday dinner and partake of her mother's apple pies.
He and Oma married July 19, 1925, and decided a year later to take over the South Dakota homestead that Rice's maternal grandfather claimed after the Civil War.
They raised cows and hay and had five children, three of whom lived to adulthood. One of those three, Bernard, died in 1949 at age 21 when the plane he was flying struck a power line near Bonesteel, S.D. Rice has 11 grandchildren, 24 great-grandchildren and four great-great-grandchildren.
He remains a fixture at the Tripp County Senior Citizens Center, which he helped build and where he eats meals and occasionally shoots pool. And he stays in touch with the world by reading - "Reader's Digest, big print, that's my favorite" - and watching C-SPAN "from 8 o'clock in the morning to 10 at night," as son-in-law Jacobs put it.
"If it wasn't for my TV and reading, I don't know what I'd do," Rice said. "Probably go nuts."
