In the spring of 1870, John Henry Te Selle (Jan Hendrik te Selle -1838-1921) move to Nebraska from Wisconsin. Herman John Te Selle (Harmen Jan te Selle – 1844-1919) came the following year. The 1870 Nebraska Census of Lancaster County includes John Henry Te Selle and his family. In the subsequent census records for 1880, 1885, and 1900 there is clearly a growing population of Te Selle family members in Lancaster County, Nebraska.
At the 1989 Te Selle Family Reunion there were several panels showing the census information from 1870 through 1900, as shown below. Scroll down the page to see larger images of each of these census panels.
