    Notes 

    • Earl B. Slawson returned to Illinois for the express purpose of enlisting, which he did in Company B, 34th Illinois Infantry, in March, 1863. This company became part of the army of Gen. Sherman in the 2d Brigade, 2d Division, 14th Army Corps. His company was engaged at the battle of Lookout Mountain, the siege of Atlanta, Buzzard's Roost and Crab Orchard, and he was in his place with them in that march to the sea, which has become a household word, and lastly, at the grand review at Washington, on the 24th of May, 1865, after which he received an honorable discharge on the 16th of July following. He then returned to Otoe County, Neb., and took up a homestead claim and made it his residence about fifteen years, then went to Palmyra, Neb., and engaged in the grocery business for about twelve months, subsequently engaging in mercantile pursuits at Utica, Neb., for three years. After this he returned to Palmyra, and for two years renewed his old life and occupation. At the close of that period he sold out and returned to his Otoe farm, and in 1884 came to Lancaster County and settled on his present farm, which contains some of the best land in the county, and includes eighty acres, all in an excellent state of cultivation.
      August 24, 1862, was a red letter day, for he was then united in wedlock with Cordelia M. Brown, who was the daughter of Vivalda and Aura T. Brown, and was born Dec. 27, 1842.
