Richardson County, Nebraska history
William G. Goolsby was a professional hunter in the early days. In his report he says that herds of from fifteen to twenty deer were constantly in sight, and that he often killed as many as seven a day.

In 1854, two men named John A. Singleton and William Roberts took claims on the South Fork of the Nemaha, and one Short took a mill claim at the junction of the Nemaha, where Salem now stands. The other members of the party, William Goolsby, Farragus Pollard, James Goolsby, Jesse Crook and John Crook proceeded a short distance up the North Branch and staked out claims, but attempted no improvements, and at once started back toward the Missouri River. After getting lost several times, the party at length reached St. Deroin, on the bank of the river, and, by firing their revolvers, succeeded in attracting the attention of some men on the opposite side, who ferried them across to the Missouri shore. In the spring, the party returned, the first of their number being Jesse Crook, who moved with his family to his claim on the Muddy, April 17, 1855, and started the first prairie farm in the county. At this time the country about him was full of wolves, deer and wild turkeys, and the fish were so plentiful in the streams that they could be killed with clubs. Frank Leechman, the first male child born in the county, was born here in this year.

PIONEER HUNTERS.

William G. Goolsby, who died on his farm not far from Falls City, in the winter of 1881-82, was a companion of Jesse Crook on the first trip he made in Richardson County before finally settling. While Crook took a claim in the eastern part of the county, Goolsby went on to a point above Salem, but became sick and returned to Missouri with the firm conviction that he had seen more than enough of Nebraska. The return of spring seems to have modified his views, for, on Crook's return to Nebraska, in April, 1855, Goolsby was again his companion, and, in October, took possession of the farm on which he lived until the time of his death. The winter of 1855-56 was an exceptionally severe one, and precluded the idea of any kind of farm work, while the vast amount of game in constant view from his cabin door was a constant incentive to hunt. The idea of turning this supply to his advantage, save in supplying his immediate wants, does not seem to have at first occurred to Goolsby, for he sent to a Dr. Impey, of Missouri, an invitation to bring his dogs and see fine sport. The sporting doctor pleaded a press of other business, and finally Goolsby went to Missouri, and, returning with a pair of dogs, began the style of life which earned him the sobriquet of "the old wolf-hunter." In this winter, deer were so plentiful that droves of from fifteen to twenty were constantly in sight from his cabin door, and frequently as many as five separate gangs were to be seen at one time. Aided by his dogs, Goolsby brought down as many as seven deer in a single half day, and then desisted simply from inability to find a use for more meat. At this time, Goolsby had a cabin twelve by fourteen feet, which was stored full of meat, and supplied all the neighboring settlers. For two years, he continued the hunt as a means of living, and, in the intervals of the search for larger game, succeeded in at once earning the gratitude of the settlers for the wholesale destruction of the thieving wolves, and obtaining the name already mentioned. With the disappearance of the wild animals, Goolsby's occupation was destroyed, and he returned to the peaceful life of a farmer, which he pursued until his death.

BURWELL NATIVE CLEARS HIS CONSCIENCE
Taken from Capper’s Weekly
The Nevada Transportation Department is $5 richer and an Idaho man, who is a native of Burwell, has a clear conscience after paying for engine oil he “Borrowed” froma department yeard 38 ½ years ago.
Emery Tetschner, Twin Falls, Idaho, wrote the agency explaining that while he was eloping in 1942 his 1932 Plymouth broke an oil line in Nevada.
Tetschner was raised in Garfield County. Emery is the son of Mr and Mrs Jack Tetschner. Jack Tetschner recently passed away. Emery’s brother Gerald and sister Dorothy Birch, both live in Burwell.
Tetschner and his bride coasted into the Transportation Department yeard, and when they found only “a dog or two” around they borrowed a five quart can of oil for the disabled car.
“As a Christian, it’s time I repaid you for the use of the oil”, he wrote, “then, 25 cents a quart, now a dollar, so have enclosed a check for $5 to make payment.”
