This is another of my Great Great Grandfathers, Benjamin Lewis Nicholas. He was born in Wales and came to America and settled first in Kansas and then Custer County, Nebraska. This photo is of him as a young police officer in Wales.
This is one set of my Great Great Grandparents and their family. Ozro and Adelaide (Waxham) Foster, had four children Will, Gertrude, Lon, and Ida. Ida was my Great Grandmother. Ozro Foster was from Indiana and made his way to Nebraska after the Civil War. He is on the African American Civil War Memorial in Washington DC. Ida would go on to marry George Porter and serve as the Custer County Register of Deeds after his death.
