The dogs and I (and sometimes Sam the cat) have been walking out to check on the cows. These are NOT our cows, but belong to the rancher who rents our place every winter. He likes to bring up his spring’n heifers.
What that means is he brings up his “very first time to ever have a calf” cow. He likes to feed them out on lush farm leavings; corn stalks, bean straw, dormant alfalfa and of course all the abundant weeds we have this year because we sold our cows.
You can see by the photo we are all still in the waiting mode…no babies yet. I always LOVE have the little babies popping out all over. I don’t think it will be long now, maybe two weeks ….?
I’m off to do my typing at the Historical Society/Museum here is about an hour. My project this week is to enter into a data base the Naturalization-Petition and Record of Acceptance for Citizenship of people who have moved to our county.
The whole experience of reading the records is absorbing…I have to remember that I NEED to get these name entered into the data base
Here is just an idea of a couple of people:
John Peterson, Railroad Section Foreman, born August 3, 1884, in Leoutorrion, Greece. Mr. Peterson left Greece, March 20, 1901, and arrived in New York City. When he migrated to Delta he was not married. He received his citizenship September 20, 1915.
Olie Peterson, was born March 11, 1871 in Mimomolo, Sweden. He emigrated to New York City on July 20, 1888 on the ship Germane, of the White Star Line. He was married in Markvilla, Sweden to Slima Johnsen. The whole family migrated to Leadville, Colorado. Silma died in Leadville. There are two children: Anna Oliva born May 1897 and Clara born April 1899. Olie received his citizenship September 7, 1907.
I might have the town’s names not spelled correctly the handwriting is extremely hard to figure out. The town doesn’t go into the data base, just the country. If you ask for a copy of the record you will get a photo copy of the whole record…there is ever so much more on the record than I’ve just given you, AND you will get to figure out the town’s spelling.
