James Parvin Sterner
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Apr. 11, 1837
Holmes County
Ohio, USA
Death: Oct. 23, 1892
Custer County
Nebraska, USA

James Parvin Sterner came to Nebraska with his wife and children via "over land and covered wagon." They carried all their possessions in the wagons and drove their stock. They made the trip in 1884, taking several weeks.

They homesteaded on West Table, Nebraska building a sod house to live in. They had to travel several miles in a wagon to get their water at Plum Creek. The children had a great deal of responsibility on the farm, particularly in the last years of James' life when he was blind.

James was born in Ohio and his wife was born in Indiana. In politics he was a Republican and his religious membership was in the United Brethren Church. He brought his family to Custer County, Nebraska in 1884 and died here in 1892 during surgery for appendicitis.
