FARM FAMILY HOMESTEAD. Sargent, Nebraska. Circa 1886. Sargent is located in Custer County in the center of Nebraska, north of Kearney. The family appears to be sheep ranchers and had built an industrious sod house as well as a second sod building behind the water windmill. We count six children, five horses, four cows, about 40 sheep two wagons and one hay dump rake. Photo was taken by Solomon D. Butcher and is housed in the Library of Congress. Caleb, Megan & Jim
