Jerome Shellhorn
This descriptive sketch is from Portrait & Biographical Album of Johnson and Pawnee Counties Nebraska published by Chapman Bros., Chicago, 1889 (p. 536)
JEROME SHELLHORN. There are few citizens of Pawnee County residing here any length of time who are not familiar with the name of this honored pioneer. He first set foot upon the soil of Nebraska in the spring of 1855, taking up his abode on a tract of land in Richardson County, where he sojourned a period of nine years. Thence he removed to Nemaha County, living there also nine years, and in the fall of 1873 took up his abode in Pawnee City, of which he has since been a resident. He has had a ripe experience in mercantile business and farming. In 1882 he purchased ground within the corporate limits of the city, underneath which there lay a strata of sand to the depth of fifteen feet. From this he supplies all the sand for building purposes that is used for miles around. Later he dug a large well which is kept supplied to the depth of twelve feet with living water, and from which, during the dry season, he supplies the citizen by the barrel, it thus proving an inestimable boon to them and the source of a handsome income to the proprietor. Plasterers, builders, fair associations, etc., are supplied from this source.
The reliable old Keystone State gave to our subject his first impressions of life, he having been born in the village of Berlin, Somerset County, Oct. 28, 1826.
