You Made the Payment

This individual signed a receipt for payment in a late 19th century homestead application in Nebraska.


  1. I forgot to add the Receiver, but I did read it that way.

  2. I obviously don't know where in Nebraska this application was made or exactly when. However in an 1890-91 Gazetteer for Cheyenne county in Nebraska there is a Business Directory and farmers list.
    Listed in the town of Sidney is a U.S. Land Receiver by the name of Mark M. Neeves.
    Just a coincidence ??

  3. Neeves is it. I goofed up on this one when typing in the answer. Thanks to Anonymous for pointing this out.

  4. You are being watched -- Grin !!!
