    Notes 
    • Information from "Descendants of James Hucker by Betty Hucker":

      Harry M. Nilson went from Chicago to Hermiston, Oregon to homestead about 1911 or 1912. He returned to Marry Bertha J. Hucker on June 10, 1914. They traveled by train to Pendleton, Oregon, where Harry had to leave to drive a team of horses back to Hermiston. Bertha wanted to stay with him, but the trip was considered too rough for a woman. She went the rest of the way by train.
      The sand storms cut down the fruit trees; the irrigation water promised to them didn't come as planned. When their first child, Marie, was born in 1916, Harry considered the winters too rough for a family. they returned to Illinois and his job as a fireman.
