Biography of Adolph Rerucha
Saunders County, NE Biographies





Adolph Rerucha, a well known agriculturist of Elk precinct, was born upon the farm which he is now operating on the 11th of May, 1878. His parents, Mathias and Carolina Rerucha, are natives of Bohemia, where they remained until 1873, when they emigrated to the United States, wishing to try their fortunes in this country. They made their way to the middle west and settled in Saunders county, Nebraska, which was then little more than a frontier region. The father became the owner of land on what is now section 2, Elk precinct, and there built a sod house which served as the family home until a more pretentious structure could be erected. He has since concentrated his energies upon farming and is still living on section 2.

Adolph Rerucha, who was born in a sod house upon his father's farm, was reared at home and attended the schools of Prague in the acquirement of an education. He began assisting his father as soon as old enough and after leaving school continued to engage in farm work. He helped his father for some time but for two years was in the employ of others. During that time he saved his earnings carefully and as soon as he was financially able to do so he rented land which he farmed for two years. At the end of that time he removed to the homestead on section 2, Elk precinct, and has since operated that place, together with forty acres on section 10. He has built a beautiful residence and a barn and made other improvements upon the place. He owns the most up to date machinery, the use of which greatly facilitates his work, and in all things he is progressive and up to date.

Mr. Rerucha was married on the 5th of February, 1901, to Miss Emilie Pad, a daughter of James and Barbara Pad, early settlers of this county. Mr. and Mrs. Rerucha have become the parents of the following children: Helen and Mollie, at home; Ludmellia, who died in infancy; Ludmellia, at home; Clara, who died in infancy; and Hermia, at home.

Mr. Rerucha votes the democratic ticket at the polls but has never taken any other part in politics. Fraternally he is connected with Z. C. B. J. at Prague, and his religious affiliations connect him with the Catholic church.
