I have to imagine that Silver Creek, Nebraska, in the Platte Valley, is not know by everybody. So, I decided to break up the pages of the memoirs with some information on where Lottie grew up.
Silver Creek is in Merrick County, not too far from Omaha. The southern border is the Platte River. Some of my other ancestors, the Brown's, settled in Colfax County, which is just to the north and east of Merrick, also along the river.

Having never been there myself, I Googled "Silver Creek, Nebraska" images, and came back with a lot of pictures of farm land, cows and tornadoes.
