    Notes 
    • Joseph, Terezie and their three children, Johanna, Anna, and Joseph left Bohemia and sailed to America in 1879. Joseph purcahsed land from the Burlington and Missouri River Railroad company on February 5, 1880 to purchase land at the S 1/2 NW 1/4 in Section 31 of Liberty Township, Fillmore County, Nebraska. Turkey Creek flowed through the middle of their eighty acres. The high bank along the creek gave them protection from the winds. Joseph was a farmer and brick maker. Along the banks of the Turkey Creek they must have found clay of such quality that it could be used for brickmaking. They imprinted a large "B" on each of the bricks they made. Joseph's bricks can still be found in the chimneys and walls of cellars and homes in the neighborhood. In 1889, the Braums decided to leave Nebraska and travel to the Oklahome territory for free land. The Braums settled into what was later to become Oklahoma City. In 1891, they sold their farm in Nebraska to Frank Keberle, whose family still owns that land. (Milligan, p 209)
