Homesteading in Nebraska

Hendley, Furnas County, NE

Philip Meyers accompanied his three older brothers, Isaac, Henry and John on a trip from Pennsylvania  to the Beaver Valley in Nebraska.   He was too young to stake a claim for a homestead as his older brothers did, so he rode for the Pony Express until he could prove up on a quarter-section next to his brother, Isaac. Their land was just to the west of the town of Lynden, later called Hendley.
