[34197] Hugh Clark Brown was born at Fairfield, Jefferson County, Iowa on September 9, 1850 . As a young man, he went to work as a bridge builder for the Union Pacific Railroad with his brothers William Steele Brown and Frank Fee Brown. They boarde d at the house of a widow, Joanna Roscoe Martin, on a farm at Maple Creek, Nebraska. Mary Almira Goff boarded at this home for two years while teaching school and she met Hugh Brown while he was staying there. In November, 1874 William Steel Br own married Ida Belle Martin, Joanna Martin's daughter. The following month, in December of 1874, Hugh Brown married Myra Goff. They continued to live close to each other in Fremont, Nebraska and Ida was known in the Brown family as "aunt Ida."

Mary Almira Goff, called "Myra", moved with her parents to Fremont Nebraska in November of 1868. This was exactly the same year that her landlady and future relative, Joanna Roscoe Martin, came to Nebraska to homestead in Maple
Creek. The following are exerpts from a history written by Joanna Martin (later Sutton) in March 1909 for her grandchildren. This was given to me by Robert T. Brown, a descendant who lives in Massachusetts.

"The first incentive that prompted us to come to this (which seemed to us then) far off wilderness, was on account of my husband's failing health. He had been an invalid for over three years. He got the impression that a change of
climate would be beneficial to him, but alas, it proved to the contrary. "Delusions, like dreams, are dispelled when awakened to stern realities." In less than a year he was called away as on angels wings to his heavenly home."

[Note: Myra's family also came to Nebraska for the same reason. They had all been sick with typhoid fever and thought a change of climate would be good for their health.]

"So contrary to the advice of our friends, we made the venture. We had a chance to trade our little farm in Michigan and took for part pay eighty acres of land near Maple Creek, Nebraska. Packed up a few of our belongings, such as thought woul d pay to ship, made a short visit at my old home in Ohio, bade our friends farewell, and then set our faces Westward toward the Great American Desert, as it was called in geography in my school days. The trip was uneventful."

"We arrived in Omaha in due time. We crossed the Missouri River on a ferry and it was all four horses could do to haul us up the bank: mud, water and filth everywhere. Groups of savage-looking Indians on every corner. (By the way, they were th e first Indians I had ever seen). A feeling of utter loneliness impressed me, and my courage began to ooze out at my finger-tips
when I realized how far away I was from home, friends, and civilization with my three children and an invalid husband: but my better reason asseted itself. I knew it would not be wisdom to yield to discouragement or discontentment, for disconten tment is the want of self-reliance: it is infirmity of will and I knew enough to know that I would need self-reliance and will power."

"At that time, Omaha was a small dirty town: the Union Pacific R.R. being the principal enterprise. We took the train at 5:30 PM for Fremont, (car fare was ten cents per mile) arriving at 7:30 PM. We went ot the Fremont House where they gav e us one straw tick for five of us. We had a light breakfast-- bill $4.50. There weren't enough buildings in Fremont to be called a town. Muddy streets and straggling Indians were the chief attraction. This was March 28, 1868. We bought a sma ll stove at $40.00, a sack of flour $6.00, one bushel of potatoes, $2.00. We hired a man with a team to take us out to Maple Creek."

"Then, I had my first experience of what a prairie looked like. After we left Fremont, not a house or tree could be seen until we reached Maple Creek, a distance of ten miles. What surprised me was that if that land was fertile and raised goo d crops, why it wasn't settled up long before, when all you had to do was to plow the land and sow the seed: while in the East in the timber
country it took almost half a generation to clear up a farm. But that problem has been settled."

"Mr. Wulson let us go into a little lean-to, a part of his house, put up our stove and cooked our first meal in Nebraska. We improvised a sort of bed to sleep on as our goods had not come yet. The outlook was not very flattering. There was a go od deal of vacant land here then."

"Hugh, my husband... decided to file on a homestead. There was a vacant eighty adjoining the eighty we had bought. Made a little improvement, dug a cellar, set out a few trees and expected to file on it when the Land Office opened. Usually th e Land Office opened at Omaha three days before it did in Fremont. Now was when craftiness played a conspicuous part. The day the Land Office opened at Omaha, a man took his team, plowed a few furrows on the west end of this eighty we expecte d to file on, drove to Omaha and made his filings the same day (craft!). We learned about noon that the Land Office at Fremont had also opened. Hugh went in that afternoon, but the office was closed for theday and he couldn't make his filings un til morning and by that time is was too late. Of course, we felt very much disappointed for the land was all taken up that was near us. But often disappointments are better than success. A young man had filed on this eighty that our building s were on.
We bought his right and gave him $50.00. It was much more desirable for building on than the other would have been."

"It was a busy time for me after I came to Nebraska. They had built a neat little schoolhouse and engaged me to teach the school about a dozen scholars. Then we decided to build a house on our homestead. A well had to be dug, so
we had to board some workmen. With my work and teaching it kept me pretty busy. I hadn't time to get the blues, even if I had wanted to."

"I will give the cost of a few things to show how poor people's money went in those days. Our house 16 x 22 cost over $700.00. Well, curbed with boards, cost $125.00 and everything in proportion we had to buy. We moved into our house August 28 , and I presume we were as happy as any king in his palace. It wasn't finished yet as it had to be ceiled on the inside instead of plastering."

"The first spring that we were here, bands of Omaha Indians passed by our door on their return from their hunt and camped down on Maple Creek. They made no depredations nor caused any trouble. One day when I was in my school room, I heard a nois e at the door. Turning, I saw a huge Indian standing there. My first thought was I mustn't be frightened. I went to the door and there were about a dozen Indians on their ponies. One handed me a paper with writing on it. All I could make ou t was "wanted melons."

I shook my head that I did not understand and they rode away. After we moved on our homestead off the main road, we were seldom annoyed by them."

[Here Joanna included day-to-day details taken from her husband's diary. He was sick and finally died that year. Rather than give up and go back to her parents, she decided to continue the farm and raise her children on her own.]

"Several years I taught school, and at the same time had some boarders. Had many applications for boarding and among them were the Brown boys as they were called then. There were three of them. They were here off and on for three or four years . Boarded Mr. Keen and his hired hand one season. Miss Myra Goff, teacher, boarded with me two school years, etc."

"I sometimes wonder how I got through it all for I was not a strong woman; a mile was the farthest I could walk in my best days. But the old adage, "where there is a will there is a way" prevailed.

"There were many and varied drawbacks the first settlers had to overcome as in all new countries..."

"What with excessive rains, droughts, grass-hoppers, and exorbitant prices you had to pay for everything you had to buy and the low price for everything you had to sell; it was a struggle for a poor man to get a start, and not the least of the dra wbacks were the sharkers. With as little money that always goes ahead of new settlements, ready to pounce down upon their victims, take advantage of their necessities like vultures on a dead carcass. I mean the extortionate interest on money loa ned."

"Then the terrible winds. Unless one has the experience, they have but very little idea what those wild west winds on the prairie mean, where there is nothing to break the winds. One of our neighbors had sown his wheat in the Spring and in place s the wind had blown it out of the ground. He declared it was not a fit place for a White man to live, and it never was intended for a White Man's country. He didn't stay long; one of the weaker ones."

"When the men come in from the fields, their faces would be as black with dust as the ground on which they cultivated. It was dreadful."

"... It was a hard matter to get clothes dry." "I went out and milked our cow one morning, and when I was coming in, the
wind swept around the corner of the house, took the pail of milk and all out of my hands and I had to crawl in into the house on my hands and knees. The pail was found a fourth of a mile away in a slough. These are just samples of the "Gentle We stern Winds."

"Then the grasshoppers-- for days we could see them flying over; they looked like snowflakes in the air. Finally they dropped down upon us which sounded like heavy hale against the house. They seemed to gather in piles on the ground and on th e trees, sometimes breaking small trees and limbs. It was late in August, so they didn't do much damage. They destroyed what garden we had and some late corn. The ground was like a honeycomb where they had deposited their eggs, but it was a col d wet Spring that followed, so was not favorable for their hatching out. The third day the arose and flew away. They looked like bees swarming, at the distance like cloud of smoke."

"That was the last, I think, of the grass-hoppers to any great extent. Then the mosquitoes-- For several seasons, especially the wet ones, they were almost unendurable. We had to make smudges of smoke and the poor dumb brutes could hard keep th en on their lariat. We lived those pestilential days as seeing the invisible realities."

"...In my five years of widowhood, I was in a measure successful in my financial undertakings. Aside from my family expenses, I got under cultivation eighty acres of land, built a small barn, set out some fruit trees, a maple grove and some cotto nwoods, etc. Bought 120 acres of land, which makes me 280 acres in a body, and had the means to pay for it all."

The following is a newspaper article entitled "Blazing The Trail For The Iron Horse" written for the Nebraska Farmer by Hugh Clark Brown about his experiences as a bridge builder for the railroad. The article came out Saturday, February 27, 1926.

"My two brothers next older than I started for Nebraska in March, 1868. On my eighteenth birthday, in September, 1868, my parents who were living in Brighton, Iowa, decided that I would do better to join my brothers. They had found a place wher e I could get work as a carpenter on the U. P. Railroad, and I started out from Brighton by stage for Washington, Iowa. I took the railroad to Maringo where I changed to a stage to Blairstown on the C. & N. W. R. R. where I again took the train fo r Council Bluffs. There was only one railroad running to Omaha at that time."

"I reached Omaha early in the morning and the outlook there surely surprised me. It was quite cool and the sun was shining bright and it seemed to me that every glass in Omaha was a bright fire. The steamboats on the river were also new to me."

"At Omaha, I paid $3.50 for a ticket to Fremont. When I arrived at my new home, I found my brothers batching in a shanty about 16 X 16 feet square, located on the northwest corner of the block that is now occupied by the water plant. The next da y we drove out to Maple Creek in a lumber wagon. It seemed to me that we waded through water for two miles or more. Maple Creek Valley and the surrounding country looked much better to me than the Platte Valley. In a few days I made arrangement s to get some tools and I went down to the Elkhorn River where I started to work."

"This was my first experience locating a cofferdam which had to be set about four feet below the bed of the river. It was surely some work to shut the water and quicksand out to give us a chance to drive oak piles. On the top of the oak piles , we placed three layers of timbers, and then stone on top of that. At that time, we did not use cement in any way."

"After a few days getting ready, we moved the bridge eighteen feet and never stopped a train. Shortly after that, we moved to North Platte where we went to work on the North Platte bridge, replacing the cottonwood material that had been used whe n the railroad was built. I might say that at that time we were using the same plan for piling timbers that was used at first, which consisted of five piles for each bent and top of same was 12 x 12 feet and on top of that, then under each sid e were the cords which were made of three timbers on each side, 6X12 inches. You will see by this that the strength that is now used would be about twice as much or more."

"When we were located at North Platte, we were called out one night to go up the railroad to replace a bridge a few miles west of Julesburg that had been burned by the Indians. We had with us about fifty men and one company of soldiers. After gett ing something to eat, we started to work with a rush that I will never forget. Late in the afternoon we completed the bridge and the train was started across."

"On returning to North Platte, we saw a band of about seventy-five antelope. This was something I had never seen before, and perhaps will never see again. During the time we were located at North Platte, we had our sleeping car and tool car an d material cars on a side track east of the bridge. The first few nights we did not get much sleep as the wolves were so numerous that their howling would last all night."

"In a few weeks the Division Superintendent of Bridges came and wanted two men to go with him on a hand car to run over the railroad all the way to Omaha, taking count of bridge lumber and inspecting the bridges. We were told to take our guns wit h us as the Indians were very bad at that time. We were running along very well one day near Wood River when Mr. Roll called out on short notice, "Stop. The Indians are in there. Get your guns in a rush." We did not even remove the car from th e track, and with guns in hand we dropped to the side of the car and waited for developments. After a short time the Indians proved to be stumps of trees. You can imagine the different feeling that came over us. During that same year, a short tim e later, near that same spot, two boys and a captain of one of the companies of soldiers were killed. They were out gathering wood and the three men and two teams were killed by the Indians."

"Late in the fall, our complete outfit was called to Omaha to help build the ice bridge on the Missouri River. For some reason we were located in a tent on the bank of the river. We had only time to get ready before it began freezing enough to sta rt driving piling, and we had the trains running, but as there were some warm days and the ice was not strong enough to hold, one night about one-third of the bridge went out. The next time we built it much stronger. In some places the water wa s 22 feet deep, and we had piling 45 feet long to handle. It was my work to see to locating the barge in the right position. Once when I was changing the ropes, the Superintendent of Bridges was standing on the barge with some men, talking. I tol d him to be careful that such a rope would come tight in a few minutes. He had forgotten what I had told him, and it came tight and threw him into the river. The ice was running and the water there was 20 feet deep. He was fished out and sent wher e he could be
taken care of and in a short time was back all O. K."

"If you think it did not take some headwork to start a pile 45 feet long in 22 feet of water, you might be surprised as I was when one day we were getting along in fine shape and the 3,000 lb. hammer with the top of the pile went clear down to th e bottom of the river. The piling was one that had the grain of wood running around and it broke off. The only thing to do was to get a
new hammer at the foundry. In about an hour we were back at work with the new driver."

"After getting the bridge complete the second time, it was frozen over in good shape and seemed to be very firm. It held good for about six weeks. A few years after this bridge was made an iron bridge was put in. A little latter a whirl wind cam e down there one summer day and picked up one span of the bridge and threw it into the river with nothing more being touched."

"Soon after, I was sent out on the west division to a place called Church Butts which was near Green River. There I found the foreman to be a friend of mine that I had worked with in Omaha. After a short time we were moved west to a place calle d Piedmont. Here we found a rough element very prominent. One morning as we were going from our sleeping car to the restaurant where we got our meals there was an officer with a man by his side that had been arrested.

They were about ten feet in front of us when the man with the officer said he wanted to go in to wash and started for the door. The officer told him to come on with him. he did not do so and the officer drew his revolver and shot him through th e breast. The man fell and breathed his last in a few moments. The officer rushed for the lone engine which stood on the track and started back east where he came from."

A Narrow Escape

"A short time later we were working at the bridge over the Green River which was in danger of being taken out by the logs coming down the river. One evening we were late in starting down to our camp. After reaching the top of the run we were makin g, we stopped and took the key out of the gear of our hand car and as we had a plank on each side of the car we sat down. There were eighteen of us on the car and we had no room to spare. We had gone through one snow shed and were coming out of th e second one, one end of which was within about fifty feet of a very high bridge. We had just reached the bridge when we discovered to our horror an engine coming toward us. The end of the snow shed which it came out of was perhaps within one hun dred feet of the bridge we had already started to cross. We were coasting down about as fast as they were coming up. The order came to jump as soon as we could reach the bank. I was sitting on the outside, and our foreman, Mr. Carpenter, was sitti ng in front of me with his feet over the center of the track. When we reached to bank everybody jumped. In trying to throw his feet over the plank to jump, Mr. Carpenter fell between the tracks and the engine ran over him."

"When I was able to get back to see what had happened, I saw Mr. Carpenter within a few feet of where I had landed which was about sixty feet down the dump. When I reached him, I placed my hand on his chest but did not feel any sign of life. We fo und when moving him that nearly every bone in his body was broken. The hand car was all torn to fragments and our tools and dishes were scattered in every direction. The engine took us all back to Piedmont."

"At the Green River Bridge there was at the time railroading was first completed, a small place called "White City." It was built mostly of tents, and was perhaps the roughest place on the railroad at that time. One night there was trouble betwee n the business men and the gamblers and the rough element resulting in about forty being killed or wounded. This was the cause
of a vigilance committee being formed in a short time and the business men took hold of it with this plan to finish the gamblers."

Driving Out the Gamblers

"The plan was to hang as many as possible. After spotting one or two at each time and calling them out they would string them up to the first pole they could reach. We heard of this being done every few days up or down the road for some time . It was not long until the entire situation was changed along the road. After going through what we had for the last few months, we began to feel that life and property were somewhat safe once more."

"In June, 1870, the Wasatch Indians had their annual gathering within a few miles of our location. One Sunday part of our crew took a walk out to see them. In some ways it was surprising to see young folks so well dressed and bright looking and ta lking our language very well. They were dancing when we were there and it was hard to tell whether they had music or what you might call it. If it was music there were a few notes lost somewhere."

"When the golden spike had been driven the changes came fast. Perhaps the most important is the change in the bridge building necessary because of the increase in weight. Nearly all wood is now being replaced with cement and steel."

"At the entrance to Echo Canyon the switching on the zig-zag plan has been changed so that trains now run direct. Everywhere possible, the road has been straightened and the tracks are now being replaced with the heavy steel rails.
The engines are stronger and nearly twice the weight, the old style of brakes on the freight cars have given way to the steel frame freight cars and many larger cars of every kind. Air brakes are now being placed on all kind of cars and the Pullma n cars are improving in every way."

"As yet I have not said anything about the change of climate or the improvement of land along the railroad. I think it may be interesting to notice some of the changes I have seen. The first year I was on the road, I did not see any signs of garde ns or cultivation after we left Grand Island. In the month of August that year we could start a fire in the grass almost any place after we left Grand Island. At that time homesteads were being taken all along the road and the rain seemed to incr ease. In the Wood River Valley we could see many farms that had been broken up and some very good buildings had been erected and all vacated the first few years for the Indians were so troublesome that no one was safe that far west.

When I was ready to leave the railroad, I concluded it would be best to go down to Salt Lake City for a few days. My Assistant Superintendent told me he would give me a pass to go down and see the city. It was a surprise to me to see what a cit y it had become. The pipe organ had been installed, and the Temple was fairly started, the foundation was completed and the walls were up as far as the sills of the windows. In the main part of the city a theater had been started. One evening whe n it was full, Brigham Young stopped the performance and ordered twelve of his daughters home because they had low neck dresses on. If it were possible I wonder what he might do in such a case at the present time."

"On my return down the railroad, I saw many things I have never seen since: A large flock of a hundred or more prairie chickens, a drove of 75 antelopes, and some deer, and one brown bear a short distance west of Cheyenne. As my work did not giv e me any chance to know about the financial trouble the railroad had at that time, I kept in touch with it as best as I could by the reports given out by the newspapers, and I think it came out in a well-planned manner, and that the public in gene ral does not realize the true condition of the railroad at the present time. I have known of every move that had been made for the last half century, and I predict for the next half century that this railroad will have the most profitable outcom e of any in the United States."

After their marriage Hugh and Myra lived in Fremont, Nebraska on 8th Street. Hugh built a nice house (which we have pictures of) using money he had saved from working on the railroad. At Fremont he designed, built and sold farming
equipment. He held patents on some of the items he made. His business ended in a bankruptcy during a severe economic downturn in the 1890s.
