     During the time Henry, Johanna (Janesovky) Dierks, and their three young ones were homesteading near Scotsbluff Nebraska, Johanna gave birth to their fourth child, my mom Mary, on November tenth, 1919.  Very soon after that, apparently, two of her three children were hospitalized with typhoin fever.  Johanna cared for them in the hospital; the children recovered, but Johanna contracted typhoid fever herself and died on the eleventh of December, 1919.
