I am looking for school records for David Graham White who married with Martha(unknown maiden name). They went to the Nebraska School for the Deaf between from 1870 to 1894. They had three children. I have some questions below.
In the 1900 Census in the Lancaster and Lincoln Co. D. D.(initial) stands for Deaf Dumb at that time in the 1900 athough I do not like the term Dumb. That is normal in old days. I am a deaf person, also. I know what it means. I understood that they could not speak English without speech training. They used Sign Language at that time. I know Signs myself also. Signs is different in old days--not like today. It is hard for me to explain, anyway. It is nothing do with my deafness from heredity, but almost! Ha. David Graham White is my great granduncle.
David Graham White (D.D) Head W M April, 1865 35 years Married 8 years born in Ohio
Martha D.D) Wife W F May, 1865 35 years Married 8 years born in Germany
1. Frank E. White Son W M June 1894 5 years old Single born in Neb
2. James White Son W M Oct 1897 2 years old Single born in Neb
3. David Graham White, Jr Son W M Apr 1899 1 years old Single born in Neb
David Graham White was raised in Otoe County with his family. I am very interesting in to find the school records for him. He went to the Nebraska School for the Deaf. I believe he met his wife Martha there.
1. What year did Nebraska School for the Deaf start?
2. Where can I find the school records for them? The records should be available in between from 1870 to 1894.
3. Where are the marriage records?
Thanks so much.

Hello listers again:
Good to see you all! You all are sweet to me in the past. Thank you so much. I need your help. Sorry I could not subscribe through by rootsweb for Lancaster Co. for some reasons. Athough, a lot of my relatives lived in Otoe County long time. They lived also in Lancaster Co. and Lincoln Co.
The names of city and counties can be very confusing because of my records show different information. Now, I am making new request this moment.
Here what it says in the census 1900 for David Graham White and his wife Martha.
Supervisor District: 156
ED: 41 Sheet:12
David Graham White Head W M April 1865 35 years Married 8 years(marriage) Ohio blank(father) New York(mother, it is supposed to be Ohio). She was born in Ohio in the genealogy book and 1880 and 1900 census. The book shows that she had a son David Graham White lived nearby Unaduilla, Nebraska, a married and a farmer. Anyway.
Martha wife F May 1865 35 years Married 8 years(marriage) Germany Germany Germany 28 years in US etc
Frank E Son W M June 1894 5 years Single Nebraska Ohio Germany
James Son W M Oct 1897 2 years Single Nebraska Ohio Germany
D.G., Jr(David Graham White, jr) Son W M April 1899 1 year Single Nebraska Ohio Germany
They lived in University Place(city), Lancastor Precinct, Lancaster Co., Nebraska. Funny thing, they did not speak English??? It shows that they can read and write athough they could not speak English???? David was born in Ohio and lived long time. Wife Martha lived for 28 years in the US. It does not make sense that they could not speak English??? Anyway.
In the Soundex 1900 Nebraska shows little different athough it is difficult to read through film because handwrite is too light.
Here what it says in the Soundex census 1900 for David Graham White.
Volume 26 ED 41
Sheet 13(12?) Line 1
White, David G. (D.D)
White, April 1865 35 Ohio
Lincoln Lancaster Pct.
University Place Holdgredge(sp?)
The name of children, birthdates and ages are same from above.
I do appreciate if you can help me with these errors whatever it is.
I did not find the family in the 1910 for University Place through Lancaster Co because it is not on the list for University Place. The pages are missing. Lincoln Co. is too many on the list of film. I did not have time to look up more yesterday. I would look up later, but I need help first regarding county and city. It is little confusing for me about Lincoln Co., and Lancaster Co. for the 1910 because it is not same for 1900 census. I did not have time to look up in the 1920 yet either. I will go back to library again. Any idea suggestion would be very helpful to me.
Thank you so much.
