    "Levi Rubottom."
    Contributed by Robin Flatt Olson, Mjflatt@aol.com

    Levi Rubottom, who has the distinction of being one of the first, if not the first settler in the county; was born in the "Hoosier" state, Morgan county, October, 1826, coming to Iowa in 1853, where he lived till moving to this county, April 1, 1885. Mr. Rubottom and wife drove through from Iowa the summer previous and saw much of western Nebraska. He filed on a homestead 16 miles northwest of Alliance near "Point-of-Rocks," the well-known watering place in early days, where he has since resided, and says he has never experienced a "blue day." Mr. Rubottom has a fine ranch of 320 acres and sufficient of the world's goods to make this worthy old couple comfortable and contented.
