      Vaclav Beranek, son of Vaclav Beranek, immigrated to Cobb, Wisconsin from Bratcice, Bohemia in 1862 with his youngest children, Jan, Josef, Barbara and Mary. He died in 1890 in Nebraska.

      Jan Beranek, born April 16, 1844, married Albina Vopalensky April 19, 1868, in Wisconsin. They bought 80 acres of wooded land to clear. Two years later they sold it for $1,000 and moved to Nebraska by train, taking baby son, Frank, and their belongings. They planned to join other Czech families at Dodge, but flooded lowlands near North Bend caused Jan to cross the Platte by ferry. They located 80 acres southwest of Morse Bluff to homestead, patent granted by U.S. Grant, August 13, 1876. Jan received citizenship in April, 1876. They erected a log house, using logs from a wooded tract he purchased near Scott's Lake. Their twelve children were born there. Ten survived to adulthood. They divorced after 35 years of marriage. Albina and some of the children moved to Ravenna, Nebraska. Charles, then 18, stayed with his father to farm. Jan died at his son, Charles', home on December 16, 1939 at the age of 95. Charles inherited the farm.

      Charles Beranek was born May 21, 1885. During his childhood, the boys slept outdoors in buildings, on hayracks or at neighbors, as the house was crowded. There wasn't room at the table so the children sat on the floor, eating from one large bowl. His sister, Anna, taught him reading and writing. He entered school at age 8. He attended 9th and 10th grades after harvest, dropping out during 10th grade. His friends called him "Professor" because of his studious nature. Some boys had him write a romantic note to another boy because he could imitate girls' handwriting.

      On January 12, 1910, Charles married Fanny Pallas at the Wahoo courthouse by Judge Slama. Deep snow made travel difficult to the Morse Bluff farm with horse and buggy. Their honeymoon night was spent at a farm north of Wahoo.

      Fanny was born in Trebic, Moravia, August 30, 1892. In 1902, she immigrated to Omaha with her parents. Alois and Katerina Pallas, and brother, John. She attended school until the 6th grade. She worked in a fur factory and for Carpenter Paper, folding envelopes. She told stories about the difficulty of earning money. Alois was a cabinet maker for Brandeis. Katerina took in immigrants as boarders.

      When Fanny came to the farm she had to learn to cook, sew, and care for poultry. Her neighbors taught her the needed skills.

      When Charles played cornet or alto in the band, Fanny kept a hatpin in her mattress for protection. Charles teased that she didn't waken when he came home.

      When Charles was middle-aged, a boyhood friend, who was a judge, visited him saying, "When I have a difficult case to judge, I ask myself, 'What would Charlie Beranek decide?' I've always respected your judgment."

      They belonged to the ZCBJ lodge. He was a member of the Woodmen of the World. Fanny was a charter member of the Just Neighbors Extension Club. He was president of the Farmers Bank at Morse Bluff, and, later, mayor of Morse.

      They raised three children. Ella (Travnicek) and Charles L. were born in the log house in 1910 and 1915. Matilda (Soukup) was born in 1919 in the new house built on the homestead after World War One.

      Charles, Sr. died July 12, 1979. He passed the farm on to his son, Charles L. After retiring, Charles L. passed it on to his son, John C., who currently lives on the homestead, which has been in the family over 100 years. Submitted by Fanny Beranek
