The following is from an undated (ca 1940) Faribault Daily News Newspaper:
Oscar Harn will be 82 years old next September. Since he moved from St. Anthony, then a town, itself, across the river from Minneapolis, he has seen a good deal of life in the vicinity of Faribault. There's nothing he likes more that to sit down, settle himself comfortably and relate interesting stories and anecdotes from out of the many things he's seen and done in the past. Mr. Harn combines a remarkable memory of names, places, and events with a real ability for telling a story and through his stories a listener can get a picture of life in Faribault and its vicinity in the time, when, as he says, "the French church was outside of town." Mr. Harn has another hobby that works well with his fondness for reminiscences. He collects old Indian relics, not with the passion that passion that sends some people out to spade up mounds, but with a casual, agreeable kind of interest. (article continues on a missing page)

They came to America in 1864, and located on a farm in Goodhue township, where they remained for some time, after which they retired and moved to Red Wing, where the mother died. The father is also deceased. To Marshall T. and Anna R. Perkins were born nine children: Edward W.,Nina C., Edna E., Frances V., Ada A., Marjorie C., Delta, Doris and Lawrence. Frances V. is a milliner at St. Paul. The rest live in Red Wing, the four youngest being at home. The other of these children died at Red Wing May 13, 1903, and Mr. Perkins was married again, at Red Wing, August 27, 1908, to Lulu M. Harn, of this city.

Following from the book, RED WING, MINNESOTA, Saga of a River Town, by Madeline Angell, published by Dillon Press of Minneapolis, MN, pg 267-268.
"Public transportation within the city was first provided by horse-drawn hacks owned by Marsh Perkins and Albin Almquist. In 1916 John, Carl, Ed, and Herman Dahl started the first full taxi service in Red Wing. They opened an office in a garage in the 200 block of Main Street, starting with four Ford cars. The brothers operated a twenty-four hour service, sleeping two at a time in the office. They met all trains stopping in Red Wing. Six months after they started their taxicab service, Marsh Perkins and Albin Almquist were out of business".

Following from the Red Wing Daily Republican Newspaper, page 1, column 2, 11Dec1939 (Monday).
M.T. Perkins, widely known in the community and proprietor of a livery stable business here for many years, passed away at a local hospital Sunday afternoon about 1:30 o'clock. The end was not unexpected. Mr. Perkins had been in poor health for a long time and had been confined to the hospital since July 3, 1938.
He was born in Featherstone on November 28, 1862, and lived in that township until he was about 35 years of age, when he removed to Red Wing where he had since resided. When Mr. Perkins first came to Red Wing from the farm, the family occupied the old A.P. Pierce home and later the residence of Governor L.F. Hubbard, now occupied by the St. John's hospital offices. He often referred to this place as the "old mansion with the $10,000 slate roof." It was in 1896 that Mr. Perkins and his brother, Alfred, established a livery and boarding stable on Third street in the stone building across from the office of The Daily Republican. At one time during his business career Mr. Perkins operated two liveries, one on Plum street and the other in partnership with A.C. Almquist.
Mr. Perkins was gifted with an unusually fine voice. In his younger days he was soloist in the choir of the First Methodist church and was a member of the Perkins Brothers quartet, which won considerable attention. He also appeared in many local amateur productions. He took over the old St. James livery, operating it for many years, later going into the transfer business which he conducted until failing health forced him to retire a number of years ago. He held the contract for carrying mail from the post office here to Hager City, Wis., over an extended period.
Mr. Perkins was a great lover of horses and possessed several valuable animals at one time. Of a congenial nature he made friends with all whom he met and enjoyed the acquaintance of a majority of residents of the city and the nearby community.
On March 17, 1887, he was united in marriage to Anna R. Purdy, who died in 1903. On August 12, 1908 he married Lula Harn Cook. She died about four years ago. He is survived by two sons, Edward, St. Paul, and Lawrence R. Perkins, Huntington Park, Calif., seven daughters, Mrs. G.E. Carlson, Mrs. Carl Adler, Mrs. T.J. Seiz and Mrs. L. Van Deusen, Red Wing; Mrs. W.B. Davis, Oconomowoc, Wis., Mrs. C.G. Johnson, St. Paul, and Mrs. O.C. Harn, Faribault; 17 grandchildren, six great grandchildren, and two brothers, Drs. B.T. and E.A. Perkins, Houston, Tex. The funeral will be held Wednesday afternoon at 2:00 o'clock at the Ferrin mortuary with the Rev. J. Wilbert Lillico officiating. Burial will be at Oakwood cemetery

Following from the Red Wing Daily Republican Newspaper, page 5 column 1,12Dec1939 (Tuesday).
Funeral services for M.T. Perkins, who was in the livery stable and transfer business in this city for many years, will be held tomorrow afternoon at 2:00 o'clock at the Ferrin Mortuary chapel with Dr. J.W. Lillico officiating. Perkins died Sunday following a lingering illness.

Some weeks ago the Tribune contained an account of an accident which happened (to) the venerable Mrs. Rupel, mother of Mrs. Andrew Longley. She was a partial paralytic, and in getting up from the table fell and broke a hip bone. She suffered ever since with the fracture until 6 o'clock Friday night when she passed peacefully away to her long rest. The funeral occurred at Mr. Longley's residence on Sumption prarie(sic), Sunday afternoon, with Dunker services.

Mrs. Rupel was one of the earliest residents of Elkhart county, and eventually moved to Sumption prairie, where she made her home with her daughter. She was an active, energetic woman, until disabled by paralysis, and was at all times greatly esteemed by all who knew her..3 Census records give age as born between 1790-1802. Jim Coleman has Catherine born 1802 in PA or OH.

Hartson E. Perkins receives injuries which prove fatal. Hartson E. Perkins, for years a prominent resident of Red Wing, and one of the pioneers of Goodhue county, met with an accident yesterday afternoon wherein he received injuries which resulted in his death this morning.
About 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon he, in company with his son, Frank, were hauling a load of corn with a four horse team. One of the horses was a young colt. When on Sand hill the colt became slightly unmanageable on account of not being able to hold the load back, so Mr. Perkins took ahold of him with the intention of helping him on. In some way he slipped and fell, the heavy load, weighing 5,300 pounds, passing over his right arm and part of his chest. He was removed to his home and medical aid summoned. He was unconscious and so weak that his internal injuries could not be ascertained, and at 10 o'clock this morning he expired.

He took a claim of 160 acres in Featherstone where he and his brother Charles lived for two years, engaged at intervals working in the pineries in Wisconsin. The second winter he spent in banking wood on the river below Red Wing, an enterprise in which he lost every dollar he had, but not daunted he vigorously prosecuted his farm work and in a comparatively few years was the owner of one of the largest and best farms in Featherstone.
About twenty years ago (1877) he became interested in Red Wing business enterprises and a few years afterwards he removed to this city in order to be in position to more carefully look after his business interests.

Jacob and Barbara Nestaval farm, near Montgomery, Minnesota
     Jacob Nestaval was born on 20 July 1840 at Budejovice, Bohemia.1 He was the son of Jacob Nestaval and Mary Mencik. Jacob Nestaval married Barbara Kardon, daughter of John Kardon and Maria Vach, between 1864 and 1866 at Bohemia. Jacob Nestaval died on 9 September 1924 at Montgomery, Le Sueur Co., Minnesota, at age 84.2 He was buried at Calvary Cemetery, Montgomery, Le Sueur Co., Minnesota.
     Jacob Nestaval was a Farmer. The cause of death was Stomach Hemorrhages.

Following from The Montgomery Messenger newspaper, 19 Sep 1924.
The funeral of Jacob Nestaval of whose death mention was made in our issue of last week was held from the church of the Holy Redeemer in this city at 10 am last Thursday morning. Rev. Emil Polasek conducted the services and entoned a high mass of requiem. Interment was in the family lot in Calvary Cemetery. The pall- bearers were: Joseph W. Vach, Edward Sklenar, Edward and George Nestaval, Edward Vrzal and Raymond Dvorak. The members of the C.S.D.P.J. and AOUW lodges attended the funeral.
The deceased was born in Budejovice, Bohemia on July 20, 1840, and was therefore 84 years 1 month and 19 days of age at time of his death. He grew to manhood in his native land and in the year 1864 was united in marriage to Barbara Kadoun. The year following they immigrated to America and settled in Lanesburg township, this county. In 1868 they purchased a farm east of this city where he made his home ever since. In April 1912 his wife was called by death, following which he continued to reside on his son's farm.
Several months ago his son was successful in having him leave the farm and he came to town to reside with his family. A few months ago he was taken seriously ill but gradually he regained strength and was enjoying the very best of health until a week before his death, when he suffered hemorrhages of the stomach, which coupled with his advanced age caused his death at 10:30 Tuesday morning, September 9. Mr. Nestaval was one of the highly respected citizens of this community where he lived for over half of a century. During this long period he took an active part in community affairs and held many positions of trust. He served on the town board for a period of 20-years. In educational matters he was painstaking and a trustee in his school district for over 32 years.
He had a fine moral character and sturdy constitution, he continued to be active in his accustomed pursuits till long past the age at which men ordinarily drop out of the ranks of the workers. To this end, there is no doubt that his sunshiny disposition largely contributed. Was practical, matter-of-fact man, but had his own peculiar way of extracting merriment from life as it went along. This cheerful spirit remained with him to the last, and he remained his clearness of intellect up to the closing days.
He was survived by 1 daughter, Mrs. John Vrzal, of this city, 2 sons, John J. Nestaval, of this city, and Stephen Nestaval of St. Paul, and 1 brother Joseph Nestaval of Minneapolis. Two daughters Mrs. Catherine Vach and Mrs. Anna Sklenar and one son preceded him to the grave. The following were from a distance: Mr. and Mrs. Stephen Nestaval and Edward Sklenar of St. Paul, Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Nestaval of Minneapolis, Mr. and Mrs. F.M. Kaisersatt and Mrs. A.E. Kummet, of Faribault and Mrs. Thos. Skluzacek of Lonsdale.


In the 1920 Minnesota Census, LeSueur County, Montgomery township, E.D. 76, sheet 2, it states that Jacob Nestaval immigrated to the US in 1867 and became a naturalized citizen in 1871. The Census also listed Jacob as being unable to speak English. Jacob was listed as head of the household, that included son Stephen, granddaughter Rose Sklenar, and a 21 year old Albert Jindra.


In the 1875 Minnesota Census, LeSueur Co., Montgomery, enumerated on 14May1875, page 496, there is a Jacob Nestaval, age 37, Eva age 30, Jake age 6, Joseph age 4, John age 2, Joseph age 21 born Bohemia, and Annie age 24 born Bohemia.
