Puzzle in the Archives -- HELP NEEDED!

Last week while trying to find information on the 'Memory Lane' donors and the hospital ward they funded, I was digging around in the Nemaha County Historical Society Archives.

Within the box of 'Doctor' items, I found a genealogical gold mine -- a journal listing births from 1932 to 1955.

According to the donation letter that came with the journal, this journal identified the children delivered by Dr. Fangman.



Unfortunately, we haven't been able to identify 'Dr. Fangman'! Thus, the puzzle. Was there a Dr. Fangman practicing in the Axtell or Seneca area? If not, who was the doctor that delivered all of these children?

We are looking for individuals born between 1935 and 1955 in the Seneca area who are willing to share their birthdate and the name of the doctor who delivered them. (The doctor's name should be on a birth certificate.) 


If you are willing to provide this information, please email nchs@rainbowtel.net.
