VISIT AT FRANKLIN
Attorney W. A. Robertson and
Robert M. Walling, of the Thomas
Walling Abstract Co., are spending
a short time at Franklin in the
southwest part of the state on a com
bined business and pleasure trip.
Many years ago in the eighties the
Franklin Land Co., was organized
and a great deal of land sold and
interest raised through eastern Ne
braska over the prospects for the fu
ture in the comparatively new coun
try near the Republican river. Among
those interested in land there was
James M. Robertson, who had not
long before arrived from his native
land of Scotland to become interested
in the rock and quarry business as
well as Thomas Walling, a young
man from Wales who had come to
the new world to seek his fortune.
Both of these men located at Frank
lin for a time but Mr. Robertson soon
returned to Lincoln and later at
Louisville to engage in the sand and
gravel business. Mr. Walling, how
ever, remained at Franklin for a
longer time until locating at Platts
mouth. Their sons find the visit at
Franklin interesting for the senti
mental touch of the one time asso
ciations of their fathers.
