Born in New York on April 2, 1852, Frederick E. Dalrymple came to Nebraska sometime between 1870 and 1880.  The 1880 census shows he was practicing medicine in Dawson County, Nebraska.  He married Kate Jayne in Dawson County on January 12, 1880.  By 1900, the couple had moved to Buffalo County, Nebraska.  In 1910, the Dalrymples were living in Plum Creek, Pawnee County, and by 1920, Dr. Dalrymple had retired and moved to Lincoln, Nebraska.  Dr. Frederick E. Dalrymple died on December 23, 1921.  He is buried next to his wife in Wyuka Cemetery at Lincoln, Nebraska.


This collection contains a few pieces of correspondence and miscellaneous other items relating to Dr. Frederick E. Dalrymple and his family. Included are three letters from Fred’s brother, Asa Manning Dalrymple dating from 1864.

Another (undated) letter in the collection is from Dalrymple’s sister Elizabeth, from Hastings, Nebraska. The remainder of the collection consists of several obituaries and memorial notices for Dr. Dalrymple and a ticket of admittance to the execution of Stephen D. Richards at Minden, Nebraska, on April 26, 1879.

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.
