Aware that the early history of Sioux County, Nebraska, was slipping away with the passing of old-timers, the Harrison Ladies Community Club began in March 1965 to gather material. Depending upon the written assistance of pioneers and their descendants, they compiled more than 300 family histories. These stories and other articles about Harrison, Sioux County and the settling of the county were edited by Ruth Van Ackeren for publication in observance of the Nebraska State Centennial, 1967.
