Arnold Eickhoff

Description

Charlie Eickhoff's great-grandfather Arnold Eickhoff, born in 1836, moved to Nebraska after the Civil War and at first lived in a dugout on the border of Cedar and Knox counties. He rose to be the bank manager, and in 1893 was elected representative from Cedar and Knox Counties in the Nebraska Legislature. Arnold Eickhoff had two children with his first wife and twenty-one children with the second wife who had two sets of triplets and a set of twins. The photograph is probably a modern copy from the 19th century original.
