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

success is due are aggressiveness. business acumen and a willingness to adopt new methods when they promise to
