A photograph of the Catherine and Cornelius O’Connor, the original homesteaders. Both arrived in America as children from Ireland after the great famine there. The two moved to the area and settled near St. John’s City, an Irish settlement, now Jackson, Nebraska. Area residents can visit the O’Connor House outside of Homer, Nebraska, Saturday, Nov. 7, 2014, during its annual holiday opening. The residence, completed in 1875 was restored and is run by the Dakota County, Nebraska, Historical Society. (Photo by Jerry L Mennenga©)
