William Jeffrey Wasserburger
William Jeffrey Wasserburger, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Wasserburger, Jr., was born at 10:40 a.m. Sunday, and thus became the first baby born in Niobrara in 1961.
The maternal grandparents are Mr. and Mrs. D. F. Wilson of Lusk, and the paternal grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Henry Wasserburger, Sr., ranchers in northern Niobrara. Mr. and Mrs. Wasserburger, Jr. also ranch in northern Niobrara.
As William grows older he wouldn't be lacking for playmates for he has three older brothers and a sister: Jerry 8, Jolene 6, J.D. 3, and Tommy, 13 months.
Because William is the first baby born here in 1961, he and his parents are entitled to numerous gifts from Lusk (business) houses.
He weighed an even six pounds at birth.
