John Hoaglund

In the Spring of 1868, John M. Hoaglund and Sara (Vastling) Hoaglund, his wife, with their two children emigrated from Sweden to America. John M. Hoaglund, was born at Noravi, Ostergotland, Sweden, April 1, 1831, while his wife was born at Tiderssum, Ostergotlund, April 12, 1824. John Hoaglund, the son, was born in Noravi, September 15, 1861,

Upon reaching Gottenborg, where he was to purchase tickets for the family’s passage to America, John Hoaglund was informed that he had not sufficient passage money to get to Burlington, Iowa, his destination, but that he could reach Jamestown, New York, where there was a Swedish settlement. The sea voyage was sixteen days, and later the mother became so ill that she was unconscious when the emmigrant train reached Jamestown. The family had just two dollars and a half in American money, and the railroad agent, being desirous of getting them off his hands, halted a one-horse dray and had the driver go after the Swedish Methodist minister.

When the minister was informed that the family had no relatives in that part of the country, he resolved to do his best for them and securing a dray, put the mother and children and their home made trunk into it and drove them up to the edge of town where there was an old vacant house. The mother continued ill part of the summer, and the father went to work on the railroad for $2.00 a day. John Hoaglund, the subject of this sketch, then seven years old, was a water boy for the men, while his mother, when she recovered, cooked for twenty-eight of them. Due to the fact that the contractor ran away with the pay roll, Mr. Hoaglund received no wages for his last two month’s work. When winter weather made railroad work impossible, the father secured a job of wood cutting, while the mother took in boarders.

The following summer all worked for the railroad again, and in the fall the father had $300.00 saved. Going eighteen miles out of Jamestown he found a cheap farm which he purchased, making a down payment of $300.00. There they farmed until the Spring of 1878, when they sold out and came to what is known as the Looking Glass, Nebraska. There mail was received twice a week, and Columbus was the nearest railroad town, forty-five miles away.

John Hoaglund, Senior, purchased railroad land, a half section a year before the family moved to Nebraska, at $2.75 an acre. In spite of the low price, however, they were forced to sell the only cow they had to make the small payment on a quarter section and to allow the railroad company to take back one quarter. Mr. Hoagland recalls selling eggs for four cents, butter for three cents, and doing without coffee entirely. Until he reached 20 Mr. Hoagland wore split leather boots. At that time he purchased his first pair of overshoes.

At first, in Nebraska, the family lived in a sod house, and built a sod barn. Drinking water was carried from the home of a neighbor eighty rods away. There was bad luck with the horses, and one of the best was lost when helping a neighbor thresh. The first seven years in Nebraska $1400 was used for the purchase of horses.

The baby sister died on May 5, 1883, while they still lived in the sod house, but finally things improved and at the present time Mr. Hoaglund lives in one of the most comfortable homes in Newman Grove, and is the owner of 700 acres of Nebraska land. His father died at Newman Grove, on January 7, 1921, and his mother also died at Newman Grove, November 4, 1917.

On June 6, 1894, Mr. Hoaglund was married to Hilda Augusta Peterson at Looking Glass, Nebraska. She was a native of Kastlosa, Oland, Sweden, daughter of Jonas and Johanna Peterson. Her brother, Chancy A., was a prominent farmer in Platte County until his death on December 18, 1924. To them were born five children, four of whom are living: Edith, born November 3, 1894, married Victor Larson; Alice, born February 25, 1896, married Dr. Lloyd C. Blockman; Ethel, born September 5, 1897; Ada, born March 21, 1900, who died April 29, 1913; and John C., born September 15, 1903. The two oldest girls received a high school education, while the other two living children were graduated from the University of Nebraska. Ethel is a successful commercial teacher. John served two years as assistant secretary of a Young Men’s Christian Association, was four and a half years in the Newman Grove Post Office, and is now deputy treasurer of Madison County.

During the World War period Mr. Hoaglund’s quota for Liberty bonds was placed, perhaps unjustly, at $5,000.00, and although he had to borrow the money, he purchased that amount. Educating his children also depleted his working capital, and his taxes became larger than his income. However, through the sale of two farms one at $100 and the other at $93 per acre, he readjusted himself. He believes now that in a few more years he will have his land entirely free from indebtedness.

Recently Mr. Hoaglund was elected to life membership in the Nebraskana Society in recognition of his work for the advancement of his community and state. Residence: Newman Grove. (Photograph in Album).

Cass Grove Barns

Born on an eighty acre farm in northern Indiana, October 1, 1848, much the youngest of seven children, Cass Grove Barns is the son of Cyrus and Eliza (Elliott) Barns. His father. born in Onondaga County, New York, April 11, 18_8, died in La Porte County, Indiana, May 23, 1883. His mother, born in Onondaga County, May 28, 1809, died in La Porte County, on February 8, 1887.

Tradition assigns his nationality to England, with a mixture of Scotch-Irish ancestry, which was continued in America by intermarriage. An ancestor, Thomas Barns, of Hartford, Connecticut, came to America about 1680, where he joined a party going west to the Connecticut Valley. He participated in the first great Indiana wars, and was given a six acre tract of land in the city of Hartford, and a farm in the country. After peace was proclaimed he was married and his benign neighbors executed his wife for alleged witchcraft. He married again and from that union the entire line descends directly to Cass Grove Barns, he being the seventh generation. Members of the family participated in the Revolution, and the War of 1812. On the maternal side Mr. Barns’ lineage is traced to participants in the two wars also, an uncle having lost his life in filibustering expeditions in attempting to take Canada from England.

Reared on a farm, Cass Grove Barns attended district school when possible and taught in country schools several terms He later became a medical student with an active physician, a custom which antedates the internship of the present day. After graduation he practiced in the thickly populated neighborhood where he grew up, later removing to the county seat where there were fifteen or twenty old doctors. He served as township physician 1879-80, and was appointed county physician, having charge of the county hospital, the poor house, jail and out door poor, which gave him a job in addition to his regular practice.

Having bought wild land in Boone County, Nebraska, he succumbed to the western fever and moved to Albion, in April, 1881. For five years the family lived on their faring where Dr. Barns supervised the farming and cattle feeding and practiced medicine in Albion. In 1886, he moved into town where he engaged in the drug business with another doctor. After a few years business interests interfered with his medical practice and he ceased answering sick calls. However, he has never been clear of practice, and is still a registered physician.

Dr. Barns has served on the United States Pension Board, has been medical examiner for the Modern Woodmen of America, chief surgeon for the Nebraska National Guard, and in 1922 freshened up a bit at Tulane University. To his credit are several years as a member of the school boards of Albion, and rural districts, as well as several terms as president of the Albion Board of Education.

He was drafted to take charge of the Boone county fair, donating his services, and for a period of six years, during the depression and loss of crops of the nineties, was secretary of that organization. The fair was dying under a heavy debt, and as its secretary he was given complete control. In 1898 he left the organization entirely, out of debt.

Dr. Barns is a Democrat, and from 1894-98, was postmaster of Albion. In 1897 he had a newspaper to edit, a farm to operate, a fair to manage, post office work to do, and in addition was obliged to assume management of the Albion Flouring Mill doing commercial work with a branch store in Omaha, another in Chattanooga, smaller ones here and there. He directed also a traveling salesman. After a year he sold the Albion Argus, left the fair, and being an offensive partisan, was let out of the post office by McKinley. Thereafter for a period of twenty-two years he operated the milling business, which earned him a lot of money at first. At one time he owned and operated a small mill at Petersburg, Nebraska, but traded it for land in Kimball County.

In 1908, he purchased a large department store in Albion, operating it two years. In 1911, he again bought the Argus, selling it in 1917, because of the dearth of labor due to the war. From 1890 to 1904, Dr. Barnes did much Sunday School work and otherwise supported and assisted the Methodist Church.

When his daughters were students at the University he bought the historic D Street home of William Jennings Bryan, where his family lived two or three years, while he remained in Albion. His wife desiring to return to Albion he built a new home there where the family remained until 1928. At that time he purchased the Madison Star-Mail, moving to Madison, where he built another home. He sold the paper in April, 1981. Being idle during the past summer he has devoted much of his time to assembling a 75,000 word fiction story of pre-Civil War times.

The World War period injured the milling business greatly. Dr. Barns was assigned to about all the local war projects that did not pay–he was appointed to organize the County Council of Defensane, securing an admirable organization with county officers and precinct chairmen. To this was added a staff of many auxiliary workers. Among them he organized 18 home guard companies, got their officers commissioned and many companies drilled. No Nebraska Red Cross was functioning and he was chosen to organize it in the county. He became temporary county chairman and secured an excellent permanent one. He circulated food pledge cards, and then grow wheat one year, distributed two carloads of seed and the next year sent away for 65 single orders of seed Dr. Barns carried on war construction alone, denying some and forwarding requests for others. He was called upon to support the sale of bonds, and held meetings for food saving.

Dr. Barns was appointed chairman for Taft’s League to Enforce Peace, and then to find jobs for returning ex service men. He announced that he desired to get over seas where things would he peaceful and quiet, and his application for work in the Red Cross, Salvation Army and Young Men’s Christian Association went as far as preparing his passport. He was given many recommendations, which apparently were cancelled by other statements that he was worth more at home.

In addition to the foregoing he was government appeal agent between county and district draft boards. He helped recruit a company of infantry which was camped at the fair grounds and inducted into service. He was responsible for the support, which amounted to consider able, but was later paid by the Albion Commercial Club. The camp was given his name.

Prominent in political life over a long period of time, Dr. Barns was twice elected county commissioner of Boone County. In that capacity he opened most of the hilly roads surrounding Albion, and made many dry run bridges. His brother commissioners backed his leadership, and when a cash basis was attained Dr. Barns quit the job. He was nominated for lieutenant governor in 1920, and was defeated; was unsuccessful candidate for state senator from Boone, Antelope and Greeley once by six votes, which on the recount was reduced to three. On the no license ticket he was candidate for mayor of Albion three times, was defeated twice and elected once. Prior to that he had served as chairman of the village board.

On June 24, 1871, Dr. Barns was united in marriage to Isabelle Smith, in Berrien County, Michigan. Mrs. Barns, who was born in London, England, February 21, 1852, came to New York State with her parents as an infant.

Waugh; and Donald Grover, born May 21, 1892, who married Margaret McGregor.

Dr. Barns desired his children to become farmers, but it was not to be. Frank graduated in both medicine and dentistry and became professor of head surgery in the Omaha Dental College. He practiced in Omaha, some years, and entered war service as a lieutenant. Promoted to captain and later to major, he was transferred from the base hospital at Houston, Texas, overseas as general surgeon. There he had command of surgical unit No. 7 which followed the battle front and operated on those sent back from the lines. He was in advance sector from Memorial Day to Armistice Day, and thereafter had charge of hospitals in different parts of France. Returning, he was married and settled in Albion, where he enjoys an extensive clinical practice. They have a son and a daughter.
