Georg Friedrich Burger in History of Gage County, Nebraska.
   GEORGE F. BURGER.--In Section 19,
Clatonia township, George Frederick Burger
is the owner of two hundred and forty acres
of land, besides which he has a lauded estate
of four hundred and eighty acres in Clay
county, Kansas, the latter property being im-
proved with two distinct groups of farm
buildings and being under the direct manage-
ment of his sons, John A. and Carl S. Rela-
tive to the family history adequate record is
given in the sketch of George S. Burger, on
other pages of this work, and representatives
of the name have played a worthy part in
the social and industrial development of
Gage county, where the family home was es-
tablished in the pioneer days.
   George F. Burger was born in Bavaria,
Germany, April 3, 1863, a son of John L. and
Margaret M. (Rueter) Burger, and he was
two years old at the time of the family immi-
gration to America. He was reared and edu-
cated in the state of Illinois and was fourteen
years of age when he accompanied his parents
to Gage county, Nebraska. He continued to
assist in the work of the home farm until his
marriage, in 1887, and thereafter he farmed
on land rented from his father until 1890,
when he purchased a farm of one hundred
and twenty acres near his present homestead
in Clatonia township, his father having given
him one hundred and twenty acres and he
having purchased an additional one hundred
and twenty acres. When he located on his
present home farm the same had buildings
representing an investment of about five hun-
dred dollars, and since that time he has shown
his progressiveness by making the best of
permanent improvements, including the erec-
tion, in 1901, of a commodious and modern
house of nine rooms, he having expended
fully five thousand dollars in buildings and
other improvements on the place, besides hav-
ing shown equal progressiveness in the im-
proving and developing of his farm property
in Kansas, where he made his first investment
in 1907. Mr. Burger has been recognized as
a specially energetic and enterprising farmer
and has given particular attention to the rais-
ing of high-grade swine, of which he ships
an average of a carload each year.
   Mr. Burger is independent in politics, and
he and his wife are communicants of the Lu-
theran church. He is one of those vigorous
men who have made full use of the advantages
offered in connection with the development of
the natural resources of Gage county, and is
one of the substantial citizens of the county.
   April 15, 1887, Mr. Burger wedded Miss
Minnie Ulrich, who was born in Illinois,
January 20, 1867, a daughter of Charles Ul-
rich, who became a pioneer of Gage county,
other pages of this work giving interesting in-
formation concerning the Ulrich family. Of
the children of Mr. and Mrs. Burger the eld-
est is Margaret, who is the wife of John
Rehms, of Clatonia township; John A. and
Carl S. have charge of their father's exten-
sive farm property in Kansas, as previously
noted, and they have an efficient coadjutor in
the person of their younger brother Walter;
Anna is the wife of August Hinke, of Saline
county; and Herman and Edward remain at
the parental home.

Georg Leonhard Burger in History of Gage County, Nebraska.
   JOHN L. BURGER -- This venerable and
honored pioneer citizen is now living virtually
retired on the old homestead farm which has
been his place of abode for forty years and
which is one of the fine farm properties of
Clatonia township. He reclaimed his land
from the virgin prairie brought to bear daunt-
less energy and determination and in further-
ing his own advancement and prosperity he
contributed his full share to the social and
material development and upbuilding of the
county. A sterling citizen who can look back
upon many years of earnest and productive
industry, he is specially entitled to recognition
in this history.
   John L. Burger was born in the Kingdom
of Bavaria, Germany, on the 24th of Septem-
ber, 1836, was reared and educated in his
native land, where his marriage was solemn-
ized and where was born the first of his five
children.
   In 1865 Mr. Burger immigrated with his
family to the United States and for the ensu-
ing twelve years he was engaged in farming
in the state of Illinois. In 1877 he came with
his family to Gage county, Nebraska, where,
at the rate of ten dollars an acre, he purchased
the farm now owned and operated by his son
Leonard. No improvements had been made
on the place and he erected as the family
domicile a frame house of one story, twenty-
six feet square. He broke the prairie soil
and with the successive years made each count
in achievement and increasing prosperity. He
made good improvements of a permanent
order, including the erection of the present
commodious house in which he remains with
his son Leonard and the latter's family, and
he had the satisfaction of reclaiming and de-
veloping one of the valuable farm properties
of Clatonia township. In 1897 he abated his
more strenuous activities and in the gracious
evening of a long and worthy life he is living
virtually retired on his old homestead place.
He assisted in the organization of the German
Lutheran church at Clatonia, and is still one
of the revered and active communicants of
the same, his wife likewise having been zeal-
ous in church work.
   In Bavaria, Germany, was solemnized the
marriage of Mr Burger to Miss Barbara
Reuter, who was there born on the 24th of
October, 1837, and their devoted companion-
ship was sundered only when the loved wife
and mother passed to eternal rest, her death
having occurred September 8, 1907. Of the
five children the eldest is Frederick, who is
one of the substantial farmers of Clatonia
township and who is the only one of the chil-
dren born prior to the family immigration to
the United States; George S. is individually
mentioned on other pages of this volume;
John and Leonard are prosperous farmers of
Clatonia township; and Margaret is the wife
of H. Luetkemier, a retired farmer of that
township.

Georg Stephan Burger in History of Gage County, Nebraska.
   GEORGE S. BURGER.--On his well im-
proved farm of one hundred and sixty acres,
in Section 7, Grant township, Mr. Burger is
proving specially successful and influential as
a breeder of short-horn cattle of the best type,
and through his activities he is doing much to
raise the grade of cattle in the country that has
represented his home since he was a lad of
eleven years and in which he is a representa-
tive of an honored pioneer family, a brief trib-
ute to his father, John L. Burger, appearing
elsewhere in this history and giving adequate
data concerning the family. Mr. Burger is an
active member of the Nebraska Short-horn
Breeders' Association and from his fine herd
of shorthorns he has made numerous sales for
breeding purposes in Gage county. The lead-
er of his herd is "Double Sultan," a son of the
celebrated "Victor Sultan." He initiated his
activities in the breeding of pure-bred short-
horn cattle in 1907, has used the most careful
methods and policies in the connection, and
has become one of the leading exponents of
this important phase of industrial enterprise
in this section. He raises annually an average
of about fifty head of the pure-bred short-
horn stock and is known also as a successful
grower of sheep.
   Mr. Burger was born in Grundy county, Illi-
nois, on the 22d of May, 1866, about one
year after the immigration of his parents from
Germany to America, and he is the first of the
five children to have been born in the United
States. He gained his early education in the
schools of his native county and, as previously
noted, was eleven years of age when the fam-
ily came to Gage county, in 1877. Here he
was reared to manhood on his father's pioneer
farm, in Clatonia township, and in the mean-
while he profited by the advantages afforded
in the schools of the locality. He continued
to be associated in the work and management
of the home farm until 1894, when he rented
land from his father and initiated his inde-
pendent activities as an agriculturist and stock-
grower. About the year 1899 he purchased
from his father his present farm of one hun-
dred and sixty acres, and the improvements
which he has since made on the property mark
it as one of the model stock farms of the
county,--an attractive rural home that can
not fail to challenge admiration and that gives
every indication of thrift and prosperity. His
success has been the direct result of indefat-
igable energy and perseverance and in addi-
tion to his fine homestead farm he is the owner
of three hundred and twenty acres of land in
Lincoln county, this state. He is one of the
stockholders of the farmers' coöperative ele-
vator company at Dewitt and is always ready
to lend his influence in the furtherance of
measures advanced for the general good of
the community. He is independent in poli-
tics and has served continuously since 1901 as
a member of the school board of District No.
149. Both he and his wife are communicants
of the German Lutheran church.
   On the 25th of February, 1891, was solem-
nized the marriage of Mr. Burger to Miss
Anna B. Ulrich, who was born in Illinois, July
9, 1864, a daughter of Charles G. Ulrich, a
sterling Gage county pioneer of whom inci-
dental mention is made on other pages, especi-
ally in the sketch dedicated to his son Edward.
Mr. and Mrs. Burger has four children,--
Albert F., Emma, Elmer and Erna,--all of
whom remain at the parental home except
Albert F., who is engaged in a garage at De-
witt, Saline county.
