the town of Spiker in Washington County, Nebraska Hello, I just transcribed an obituary for Addie May Spiker for the Washington County, Nebraska Genealogical Society, and when I saw your name I thought you might be interested in the following. Spiker is not a town listed in FindaGrave today.
Spiker was a tiny hamlet in Washington County that started in the 1890's, had a general store and a post office, and there were dances in the hall upstairs. It is said to have been named by drawing one of three settlers' names out of a hat, and Samuel Spiker won. The post office closed in 1900, and the dance hall and store were gone by the 1930's.

Connie Buller "MrsB" (the obit won't be posted on our website for some time yet, but drop me an e-mail if you would like to see it. Addie May was born near Spiker to Harry and Nellie Neff. I never know if the managers want to use these obits, even if they are older.)
Spiker Hi Mary: Could you tell me where you got the infomation for the following memorial # 7274194? I have this lady married to a Samuel Thompson buried in Spiker Cemetery. You have the same birth and death dates, but to the family's knowledge our Delila Pittman was never married to a Spiker. Interested if perhaps you have info on a marriage the we didn't know existed.
