Can anyone tell me anything about the PUGH family of Otoe county. Sarah Evelyn Pugh married Martin Amil Wieckhorst and they lived south of Nebraska City on a farm. So far I have nothing about her. She is buried in Wyuka Cemetery. She married a second time to Heinrich Mohlman. She died of brain cancer about 1951.

The above document would indicate that the father (born in Illinois, Native

There was no mention of children by this marriage, however, there was a
daughter of a John Gilson also buried at Wyuka Cem, who died 1904, at the age
of one year 4 months. My mother, Nellie Winora Gilson, Niece of John, stated
that John & Elizabeth had two daughters that were given up for adoption to a
friend on the death of Elizabeth.
