In a country to which he has always
been deeply attached, notwithstanding
he is a faithful and patriotic American
now, and would fiht for the land of his
adoption, in the year 1831, was born a
child who in the years that were to
come, would be known by the thousands
of people here, and to know him would
be to love and respect him.
Nicholas Halmes first saw the light of
day in Germany, where he lived until
he was about seventeen years old, and
with a7 number of other venturesome
spirits made his way to Central Africa
and to the Transvaal, where he made
his home for a little more than two
years. At Johannesburg he lived dur
ing his stay in that country and worked
as a laborer. The two years spent
there did not increase, but on the other
hand rather deminished his love for the
wilds of Africa. The time spent there
did not fulfill the promise which has
been held out to the promoters of immi
gration to that, as it seemed, desolate
and almost worthless portion of the
earth. At the end of the second year,
having had all of that country he de
sired and the price to get away, he bid
adieu to the land of darkness and doubt
and turned his attention and footsteps
to "the land of the free and the home
of the brave. " ;
For two years he remained in (ler- '
many, ere coming to America, but on j
arriving here in 18T3, he went to Ozan- I
kee county, Wisconsin, where he lived, j
following a number of avocations. At :
this place he remained for three years, j
with indifferent success as to the accu
mulation of money. Not finding what I
he wanted he turned his attention to !
the country just opening up here and 1
when the state was on'y a territory, j
In 18-S3, on the second day of February, J
the subject of our sketch came to this :
place and took a claim on the Weeping j
Water, near the city bearing that name, j
Here he lived for four years, with In-;
dians much more plentiful than white ;
people were for many years afterwards, i
After a residence of four years there,
he returned to Plattsmouth, and was!
united in marriage with Etta Aler-j
notte. in 18 "u. At this time he tool; an-!
other claim, as the one he had at Weep- j
ing Water was not perfected. j
In 1857 he burned the first lime kiln j
that was ever burned in the county or J
state. 'In the year 1853, in partnership '
with Christain Moektnhaupt, sr., he
embarked in the brick business, which
they conducted together for about three
years, during which time they made the
brie- which was used in the building of
the Mock on lower Main street, known
as the "White Elephant." At the end
of three years he released the yard to
his partner, who conducted it for a
number of years, and who was succeed
ed by his son, Christain Mockenhaupt,
jr., who now conducts the business,
south of the city. During this time
Uncle Nick continued to live on the
farm, walking from home to his work
in the brick yard or sleeping at the
yards. After he had discontinued to
work at the brick yards he began rais
ing broom com and making brooms. At
this he worked about two years. Ashe
got more of his land under cultivation
he was not able to continue the manu
facture of the brooms, and keeping the
machinerv for sometime at his home
where he had made the brooms. He
finally soid the outfit to James Dworek,
who conducted the business in Platts
mouth for a number of years, taking
his brother-in-law, James Iiebal, into
partnership with him, who in turn suc
ceeded to the business, and conducts it
at the present time. Continuing on the
farm he made the matter prosper and
added farm after farm, and when the
time came he was able to give each of
the children a farm and retain a good
home vsith many broad acres for his
own use in the later years of his life.
In 1880 Mrs. Halmes died, leaving be
sides her husband to mourn her loss,
seven children: Mary, Nicholas, Peter,
Lena. Rose, George and Joseph, all of
whom are living at the present time. A
few years after he and Mrs. Ploeger,
his present wife, were united in mar
riage. They live on the farm about five
miles west of this city. During his
residence here Uncle Nick has made
three trios to the Fatherland; the first
was just a short time after returning
herefrom Weeping Water; the next
about five years ago, and the l:zt was
two years a ago, at which tii.':c Mrs.
Halmes accompanied him. remaining
and visiting with old acquaintances for
about three months. About eight years
ago Mr. Halmes engaged in the milling
business, taking into the business with
him his son Nicholas and Herman
Kiietsc.n, to who he subsequently turn
ed over the business to theni and which
is now conducted under the name of
Kleitseh & Halmes.
