  • Notes 
    • From Schrock Farms: Family information about the Andrew Schrock (1804-1855) decendents.

      “Sam always referred to his mother as “my poor widowed mother” and would often cry when he mentioned her. She was not actually widowed but instead left her husband in Missouri and came to Phelps County with her 5 children by Immigrant Train. (According to Aunt Ruth, Grandpa’s mother and her two daughters rode in the passenger car and the three boys came in the baggage car!) Her husband stayed in Missouri, worked as a blacksmith, visited Nebraska, but never lived here. While here, he used to sit in Sam’s gas station, barefooted, much to his son’s irritation.
      “Sam’s two older sisters were big, strong, healthy women who lived in a dugout in Phelps County and later moved away from the area. Lizzie moved to Wyoming and Lena moved to Chappell, Nebraska. They farmed and raised their children by themselves.
      “There is a photograph included (in the book) of my great-grandparents and their 3 children. According to the family myth, the youngest son had to be situated between his parents as they could not agree to sit closer together.
      “It is not known what became of my great-grandfather. My mother remembers when the family told him good-bye during the 1920s and he walked off down the road and was never heard from again. Uncle Sammy thinks he drowned himself in the Columbia River. He used to say that he would do that when the time came. The family advertised for information about him out in Washington but nothing was ever heard.”

      Context of Andy’s death from Sacramento Bee:
      Feb 6, 1925: Heavy rains were causing flooding in Sacramento. The Sacrament and American Rivers were high and streets and homes were flooded. Nearby Paradise received 9” of rain in 24 hours. The flooding was widespread.

      The President was Calvin Coolidge and a Rowanite 7th Day Adventist from Hollywood was the prophet of doom, saying calamity would strike on Feb 6 and bring the end of the world.

      On Saturday Feb 7, 1925, the Sacramento Star newspaper announced it would merge with the Bee on Monday of the next week. [1, 3]
