Merrick County, Nebraska

A Proud Member of The Genealogy Trails Family

Merrick County is located in the valley of the Platte, bounded
by Nance on the north, the Platte River separating Polk and Hamilton
Counties, on the east and south, Hall and Howard on the west.

Located where it is, almost seventeen hundred feet above sea
level, Merrick County, like all of Central Nebraska is favored
with a good, healthful climate.  

Twice within the history of the county great loss has resulted
from droughts; but as a rule, the climate is favorable to vegetation.  


The absence of all swamp lands make this area

particularly favorable to the cure of fever and
ague, and all malarial diseases.

We regret that we are unable to perform personal research.
