60 Nebraskaland • June 2019 PORTRAITS FROM THE PAST Pictured is me with mink taken from the 1957-58 trapping season while I was in high school at Tekamah High. I ran a trapline at night after school basketball practices. A pair of farmers, Ernest Rojem and Poode Williamson, were kind enough to let me have the run of their farm ponds and marshes at that time. I am now 77, but those memories in the outdoors were special as I reflect on them. – Fred Lambley, Morse Bluffs Taken in 1948 at Lake McConaughy: from left, my dad, Henry Adkinson; Floyd Nickolson; Winnie Adkinson; Francis Adkinson and my mother, Bula Adkinson. Taking the photo was Vada Nickolson. Henry and Francis were brothers who married Bula and Winnie, who were sisters. Floyd and Vada were married. They all lived in Dundy County and had many great fishing trips and stories to tell. – Beatrice Hatch, Ogallala Send contributions to: Portraits from the Past, Nebraskaland Magazine, P.O.
