Frank J. Rosenberg was born in Columbiana, Ohio, on August 16, 1850. He graduated from Upper Sandusky High School and then studied at the Northwestern Normal at Adrian, Ohio. He taught school for two years and then entered the Eclectic Medical Institute at Cincinnati, graduating in 1873. That same year, Rosenberg was married to Anna M. Case of Wyandott County, Ohio. Their marriage produced five children.

After graduation from medical school, Rosenberg and his wife moved to Roanoke, Woodford County, Illinois, where he practiced medicine for several years. As a representative of a group of Roanoke citizens who were contemplating settlement in Nebraska, Rosenberg went to Plum Creek, Dawson County, Nebraska to view the area. A year later Rosenberg and his family settled in Plum Creek, remaining a resident of Lexington and Plum Creek for sixty-two years. He continued his medical practice in Nebraska, and also helped in promoting irrigation and farming in the area. He died in 1946 at the age of ninety-five.


This collection consists of one reel of microfilm containing two account books dating from 1888-1901. The items document the accounts of Dr. Frank J. Rosenberg’s patients in the Plum Creek and Lexington area. Patients’ names are indexed at the beginning of each volume and each account shows date of payment, what payment was for, and the amount paid. The account books were loaned for microfilming by the Dawson County Historical Society in September of 1979.

About History Nebraska
History Nebraska was founded in 1878 as the Nebraska State Historical Society by citizens who recognized Nebraska was going through great changes and they sought to record the stories of both indigenous and immigrant peoples. It was designated a state institution and began receiving funds from the legislature in 1883. Legislation in 1994 changed History Nebraska from a state institution to a state agency. The division is headed by Interim Director and CEO Jill Dolberg. They are assisted by an administrative staff responsible for financial and personnel functions, museum store services, security, and facilities maintenance for History Nebraska.
