We were able to find nearly 150 family names in local and church records that predated 1900 (History of Bennington, Nebraska--1887--1967, Bennington Woman's Club, 1967; Bennington, Nebraska 1892--1992, Bennington Centennial Book Committee, 1992; St. John's Lutheran Church and Zion Luteran Church records). While the list is undoubtedly incomplete, it does identify many of those who were instrumental in developing our community and its institutions. We pay tribute to you. For those families we missed; we offer our humble apology.
