      John Kavan, my grandfather, came to America at the age of 23, from Chudenice, Czechoslovakia in 1872. He then homesteaded the farm I now live on, three miles south and one mile west of Morse Bluff, in 1873. John married Anna Voplansky in 1873 and they had 13 children. My father, Joseph Kavan, was the twelfth child. He married Tillie Mach on March 23, 1920 at Wahoo, Nebraska. In 1922, my dad built a new home on the same farm with his parents. In 1926, John died, and a short time later, Anna moved to another home at Linwood, Nebraska, leaving the homestead to my father. Here they raised nine children, myself, George, Helen, Richard, Ruben, Maxine, Lester, Joan and Marcella.

      I joined the Army in 1944. My basic training was in Camp Hood, Texas with the tank destroyers division. From there I went to France and was an engineer. My job was to pump gas through a pipe line which ran to the front line. When the fighting was over there, I then went to the Philippines, then finally home in 1946.

      In 1947, I married Alice Ostry at St. John Catholic Church in Prague, Nebraska. We farmed my aunt's farm near Wahoo for 19 years. Here we had three children, Marvin, Joe, and Connie. They attended Mead Public School and also belonged to different 4-H clubs in the area. In 1966, my parents retired and moved off their farm to Schuyler, Nebraska. I then bought his farm in Morse Bluff and lived in the same house my father built in 1922. Here my daughter attended the same school my father and I went to in our earlier years, District #54. She went there for 2 years; then attended North Bend High School where all our children graduated.

      Marvin joined the Navy in January, 1968. In June, 1971, he married Susan Livingston of Collinsville, Mississippi. He was discharged in 1972. They now live in Mississippi and have one son, Brad.

      Our other son, Joe, joined the Coast Guard in November, 1968. He was discharged in 1973. He married Barbara Schmit of Haddon Heights, New Jersey in 1973. They now live in New Jersey and have a daughter, April.

      Our youngest child, Connie, married Elmer Ruppert of Scribner, Nebraska in 1973. They live in North Bend and have four children, Jonathan, Daniel, Kyle and Sarah.

      We received the Nebraska Pioneer Farm Award on June 15, 1976 from the KNIGHTS of AK-SAR-BEN. In that year our farm was in the Kavan family name for more than 100 years.

      I am a current member of the VFW Post 8223 in North Bend and my sons and myself are all members of the American Legion Post 340. My wife, daughter, and my two granddaughters are all members of the American Legion Auxiliary, Unit 340. My wife is also a member of the Sacred Heart Altar Society at the Cedar Hill Catholic Church.
