John N. Dold
Birth: Dec. 3, 1882

Death: Jun. 28, 1969

John Nicholas Dold is the youngest son of Peter and Mary Ann (Holtzschuh) Dold. He was born December 3, 1882 in Nebraska City, Nebraska. John, being the youngest, stayed on his parent's farm located nine miles south of Maywood in Laws Prescinct and homesteaded in 1887. In 1889 the family moved into the one of the first two-story sod house in the county. In later years the lumber was hauled by team and wagon from Cambridge and Indianola, and a large two-story house was built near the sod house. John and his father searched for an easier way of life. The new frame house was the first to have eave troughs. John married Alice Nelson on April 14, 1909 in McCook, NE. The following year Peter and Mary left the farm to live in Cambridge Nebraska where they were buried. John and Mary continued to live on the homestead, farmed, planted trees and worked for the betterment of the community. They celebrated their fiftieth wedding anniversary on the farm. Poor health forced them to sell the place to David L. Fischer in 1962 and they moved to Maywood. They had three children: Helen married George Newell, Harley married June Grigg (of Houston) and Mildred married Ralph Wallace. (By Mayme Dold Dodson)
