Lost Huntington: First Baptist Church - Huntington Herald Dispatch

Tuesday, April 18, 2017

HUNTINGTON - First Baptist Church was organized early in 1872 in a log cabin on Norway Avenue near Spring Hill Cemetery by the Rev. Nelson Barnett, Betty Barnett, Caroline King, Walker Fry, Murray Jasper, Henry Hunt and W.O. James. The Rev. William "Uncle Billy" Bryant of Proctorville, Ohio, aided the founding members in starting their new church.At first the young congregation rented space to worship. In 1879-80, it was in a small church building in the 800 block of 8th Avenue. In 1896, it constructed a larger building on the southeast corner of 6th Avenue and 8th Street.Nelson Barnett was the church's first pastor, serving about 10 years. He was followed by William E. Simpson and then I.V. Bryant (shown in the accompanying photograph). Rev. Bryant served at the church's pastor twice, first from 1888 to 1891 and then again from 1906 until 1923.In 1965, the congregation decided to undertake a major renovation of their old building. But before work could begin, the church suffered a damaging fire. So, instead of renovating the building, the congregation built a new structure. Until it could be completed, worship services were conducted at Ohev Sholom Temple, five blocks away. The new 15,756-square-foot building cost $250,000 to construct. It houses a 350-seat sanctuary,

Manchester state Rep. Steve Vaillancourt dies - The Union Leader

Saturday, April 08, 2017

Vaillancourt at his home. "We will remember Steve as an outstanding orator and a man who was certainly dedicated to his principles," House Speaker Shawn Jasper, R-Hudson, said. Vaillancourt, 65, was serving his 10th term in the House. He made national headlines in 2012, after a confrontation with then-House Speaker Bill O'Brien, R-Mont Vernon, during a debate on a bill for voters to show photo identification to cast ballots. "Sieg Heil," Vaillancourt said from the well of the House. O’Brien ordered him removed from the chamber. House members said they found Vaillancourt’s comment, one often used in Nazi Germany, offensive. He said he did not mention Hitler, nor did he physically "salute" anyone. He later did apologize. Even that, as he mentioned at the time, was on his own terms. Vaillancourt was born and raised in the Champlain Valley of Vermont, graduated from Plymouth State College in 1974, and in 1992-93 studied in Berlin, Germany, according to his legislative biography on the state’s website. As a legislator, he was known to delve into policy discussions, from election law to expanded gambling. His co-sponsored legislation included limited proposed casino locations, repeal of the death penalty and legalization of marijuana. Vaillancourt was first elected to the House as a Democrat. He was later an independent, before changing his affiliation to Republican. He was a rough legislator who was never afraid to speak his mind, said state Rep. Marjorie Smith, a Durham Democrat who was first elected with Vaillancourt in 1996. He could be stubborn, but he was a legislator committed to fairness, she said. "He was Steve — incredibly bright, incredibly hard-working," Smith said. Jasper called Vaillancourt "a str

They had three children, Steven, Sandra, and Edward. Gene's career as a meteorologist helped create flight plans for military planes and helicopters kept the family on the move and eventually resulted in homes in Mineral Wells, Texas, and in Anchorage, Alaska. Upon retirement from the Air Force as a Staff Sargent, Gene and Maxine continued to split their time between their homes and Gene was able to dedicate his time to his hobby of restoring and fixing cars. Edward said recently "you were never worried about going anywhere with Pop- if anything broke; you knew he could fix it!"

Jim McKee: Robert Hawke among Nebraska City greats - Lincoln Journal Star

Saturday, April 08, 2017

Otoe County.Robert Hawke was born Jan. 25, 1826, near the village of Waynesburg, Stork County, Ohio. In 1842, he moved to Weston, Missouri, spending two seasons as a cabin boy on the steamship Jasper, which plied the Missouri River from St. Louis to Peru. Having spent less than a total of 60 days in school, Hawke apprenticed himself as a blacksmith, but after his contracted two years, rather than entering the trade, he instead bought a stock of dry goods in Hemmes, Holt County, Missouri in 1848.In 1854, the year Nebraska Territory formed, Hawke and Joseph Deroin platted the village of St. Deroin and, with the dry goods inventory, opened a store there to sell to local Otoe Indians.The following year Hawke partnered with Stephen Nuckolls to open a large mercantile store and overland freighting business in Nebraska City, which quickly became the state’s “largest freighters and outfitters.” Owning two businesses in Nebraska, Hawke moved from Holt County, Missouri, to Nebraska City in March 1859 and built a house on Fifth Street near Second Avenue.As the Nebraska City/Fort Kearny Cutoff route developed and absorbed much of the gold mining traffic to Colorado and Montana, Hawke & Nuckolls picked up freight traffic coming up the river on steamboats and crossing it on ferries. Within a short time, their business eclipsed even the huge Russell, Majors & Waddell.At the same time Hawke & Nuckolls opened an outfitting store in Mountain City, Colorado, which advertised their business of wholesaling and retailing “Provisions, Groceries, Foreign and Domestic Liquors, Hardware, Mining Tools, Iron, Steel Nails ... Caps, Boots and Shoes ... etc.” Their freighting to Moun
