By the way Paul Revere, pianist (Paul Revere & Raiders), was born in Harvard.

William Jay Turner, who homesteaded in Clay County, Nebraska, in 1871, has been prominent in business affairs at Harvard for many years. He was born at Byron, Illinois, November 2, 1849, the son of Thomas Ezra and Martha Eline (Pier) Turner. His father, who was a teacher in private and public schools, was born at Montville, Connecticut, May 5, 1811, and died at Quasquote, Iowa, January 3, 1861; he served in the Iowa legislature in 1854; his English ancestors settled in Connecticut in 1649. His mother was born at Cooperstown, New York, March 7, 1816, and died at Quasquote, October 26, 1898.

Mr. Turner attended school at Quasquote. From 1876 to 1886 he engaged in the grain and lumber business, and from 1886 to 1892 was a farmer.  .After eight years in the hardware business he retired. A Republican, he served as village trustee, and was the first mayor of Harvard. He was a candidate for the legislature in 1892. He is a member of the Red Cross and the Nebraskana Society, and for over 58 years has been an active Mason.

 He married Eva Marie Hjelm at Harvard, July 14, 1896. Mrs. Turner was born at Christiania, Sweden, July 4, 1860, and died at Harvard, Nebraska, June 26, 1925. Two children were born to them, both of whom died: Pier, born March 17, 1898, who died March 27, 1898; and Eva June, born June 4, 1900, who died February 26, 1930. Residence: Harvard.

Charles J. Hjelm was issued a land patent October 19, 1890  for the southeast quarter of 6, 5N 45W on a cash claim.  So Rosa finalized his claim after Charles' death in 1888..

Her brother Columbus L. Jackson filed for a cash claim in section 32, 6 N 45 W (about a mile north of Rosa's)

Columbus died in 1886 - and his heirs "proved up" that land September 23, 1890.


Eva Hjelen iin 1900 Clay County said she was born January 1828 in Sweden, and had four children living out of four.
Three are living with her.  Sarah, 44, Nora 37, and Emma Andrews, 34, married.  All four were born in Sweden


The marriage on December 3, 1891 in Warren County Ohio of Theodore Hageman and  Rosa O. Hjelen was performed by R.S. Hageman (Ralph S was a brother of Theodore)

Rosa O. HjeHn was issued a patent in July 1899 for the northeast quarter of section 32, 6 N 45 W - this would be about a mile north of the 1890 quarter.- and it's in Phillips County. 

In 1900 Warren County is Theodore Hageman October 1840 in Ohio, Rosa (born January 1859 in Ohio, Charles E. Hjelm 12, a Hattie Wright 17 servant.

In 1910 Theodore and Rosa have stepson Emmett (HJELTE in the index) 22, with no occupation - The index also says born in Ohio, but the writing says "Colo"

Columbus L Jackson

Birth 1849 in Warren, Ohio, USA
Death 9 Oct 1886 in Denver, Colorado, USA
Nancy (Dillon) Jackson, wife of Columbus Jackson (also buried in the Harvard Nebraska Cemetery), was the sister of Ruth E. (Dillon) Johnson, buried in the Harvard Cemetery, Clay Co., Nebraska. Though Nancy died in Denver, Colorado, her death certificate lists the location of her burial as the Harvard Cemetery, Clay Co., Nebraska, 2-26-1929. As close relatives were deceased or located at some distance, Nancy's grave monument was apparently never inscribed. Nancy was, after all, not a local residence of Harvard, Nebraska. Nancy had been a teacher and long time resident of Colorado and the Denver, Colorado region, though we suspect she had stayed connected to her younger sibling, Ruth. The fact that Nancy's husband, Columbus, who had predeceased her by 42 years, and had been buried in Harvard, Nebraska, suggests a strong family bond with sister Ruth.
