To the left is a picture of my great grandmother, Alice Margaret Gregg (b. 29 Apr 1870, Nodaway, Adams, Iowa; d. 29 Mar 1919, Ord, Valley, Nebraska). She married the farmer Nels Johnson on 26 Sep 1888 at her father’s farm near Alliance, Box Butte, Nebraska). They had three children.
She died just one month shy of her 50th birthday, a victim of the worldwide flu pandemic. Her daughter, Bethene Blanche Johnson (1892–1919), succumbed three days later.
