      JOHN LOVELL, farmer, Section 3, Town 13, Range 11, P. O. Nasby. Mr. Lovell was born in Dumfries, [Brant Co.,] Ontario, April 21, 1833, where he was educated and learned the trade of carpenter, which he followed until he left Canada in the fall of 1868, when he came to Sarpy County, Neb. He came all the way through with a team, making the trip in six weeks, arriving on the 7th of November, bringing his family with him. One of the horses of the team which he drove through he still owns, and which is doing farm duty at the age of twenty-three years, still active and strong. It was by dint and economy that Mr. Lovell managed to support his family and team through the winter, and he commenced farming in the spring with a capital of $12, and out of this sum he had to erect a shelter for his family, which he erected on rented land. Flour was $6 per hundred and rather scarce in his family for several months, and was obliged to do his work with a grass-fed team. At that time the nearest school was eight miles distant, and had to go to Omaha, eighteen miles, to trade and market. In 1869, he took a homestead of forty acres, which he subsequently sold, and, in 1875, he purchased 160 acres of unimproved land. He has it now all inclosed in a willow hedge fence; has an orchard of 200 apple and 100 trees of other fruit, all thrifty, and a grove of timber. Mr. Lovell was married, in Port Huron, Mich., October 25, 1859, to Miss Eleaner Stuart, of Middlesex County, Ontario. They have five children--Sylvanus O., born July 13, 1862; John S., April 22, 1865; William E., February 12, 1868; George I., February 6, 1870; Archibald J., January 3, 1875.
