. No children. SS No. 507-05-6151. Uncle Herman was a rather short & wiry
many, having red hair & freckles. He was said to have had a fiery temper
in his youth. One story has him walking down the sidewalk in Thedford, Nebraska,
one Saturday afternoon. Thedford was near his ranch. As he strolled along a tall
& lean cowboy walks up to him & hit him in the face, knocking him on
his back in the street (from the sidewalk!). Herman jumped up, running back to
the much larger cowboy & said "Let's see you do that a 2nd time"
The other guy turned & ran off!! That is a true story.
