Benjamin L Bader
Feb 2, 1831 – Oct 3, 1886
Benjamin L Bader (1831 - 1886) is buried in O’Neal, Neb. Years after the burial, the cemetery was sold and the new owner piled up the headstones and offered them to the living family members of the interred. Benjamin L Bader’s stone was miraculously taken from the pile and delivered to Benjamin L Bader (1925 – 2008) a grandson who lived his entire life in Ten Sleep, Wy. and a longtime custodian of the Ten Sleep Cemetery. The Nebraska Headstone of Benjamin L Bader (1831 – 1886) has been repaired and will soon be installed on the grave next to his beloved Ann.
The minor discrepancy between the stone and the history: The Bader Family History indicates the middle initial of Benjamin (1831 – 1886) is “L” whereas his headstone has the middle initial a “J”.
