Joseph S. Jambor, a native of Saunders county, owns three hundred and twenty acres of fine land on section 8, Elk precinct, and the improvements upon his place are probably the finest in that precinct. In addition to raising grain he feeds a great deal of stock annually and his yearly income is large. He was born in the precinct in which he still lives on the 3d of August, 1876, of the marriage of Joseph and Frances Jambor. The father came to the United States from Moravia, Austria, in 1871 and settled in Saunders county, Nebraska, where he was joined by his wife two, years later. He homesteaded eighty acres of land in Elk precinct, on which he engaged in farming until his demise in November, 1902. His widow now makes her home at Prague.

Joseph S Jambor attended the common schools in the acquirement of an education and also gained much valuable knowledge of farm work during his boyhood, as he began to assist his father as soon as old enough. After leaving school he worked with his father until he was twenty three years of age, when he purchased one' hundred and sixty acres which he began operating. He met with gratifying success, as he was practical in his methods and as he watched the markets carefully, thus being able to sell to an advantage, and at length he was able to buy additional land. He now owns three hundred and twenty acres, one of the richest and most highly developed farms of the county. He has a beautiful residence, a large and well planned barn and the other necessary buildings, all of which are substantial and well adapted for their purposes. He engages in general farming but gives particular attention to the raising of high grade hogs and Red Polled cattle, which he seldom fails to sell at a high price.

Mr. Jambor was married on the 19th of February, 1900, to Miss Emilie Ostry, a daughter of Frank and Mary Ostry. To this union have been born six children, all of whom are at home, namely: Ivan, Raymond, Lydia, Agnes, Alice and Albert.

Mr. Jambor is an adherent of the democratic party and is now serving efficiently as treasurer of the school board. He is loyal to the teachings of the Catholic church, to which he belongs, and his daily life measures up to high standards. He is acknowledged to be one of the leading farmers in the county and among the qualities to which his success is due are aggressiveness. business acumen and a willingness to adopt new methods when they promise to be more efficient than the old.
