Among the leading old settlers and public-spirited citizens of Stanton county, Nebraska, who have aided materially in its development and advancement, a prominent place is accorded Henry Armbrust, who resides on his well-improved estate in section thirty-one. He has been a resident of this county for over twenty years, and for twelve years before that, was a resident of Douglas county, still in this state. He has an extensive acquaintance, and is held in the highest esteem by all. Mr. Armbrust is a native of the province of Holstein, Germany, where he was born in 1862. His parents were John and Opel Armbrust, the father being a farmer. The mother died when Mr. Armbrust was but an infant. The subscriber remained at home until 1876, when he came to America by way of Hamburg. After arriving in New York, he came direct to Douglas county, Nebraska. He remained here for a considerable length of time, most of this period being spent on a rented farm. In 1888, he removed to Stanton county, where he bought a farm, which he still occupies. He has made the best of his opportunities and observation, and has met with great success as an agriculturalist., He has steadily added to the improvements on his farm, until now it is a picture of thrift and good management. He has a very fine orchard and grove of about four acres, whose thrifty growth attracts the attention of all passers-by. In 1882, Mr. Armbrust was united in marriage to Miss Anna Roder, of Douglas county, who is also a native of Germany. They are the parents, of six children, named as follows: Celia (Mrs. Charles Benson), William, John, Fred, Henry and Anan [sic]. [I believe the last name should be "Anna". -Ruth Moss]
