Tharp, Nathan D.
Wahoo Honors Its Last Civil War Vet
Wahoo, Neb., May 22 – Nathan D. Tharp, only surviving civil war veteran in Wahoo, was honored today on his ninety-sixth birthday by the Wahoo American Legion auxiliary, who held “open house” at his home.
Mr. Tharp has been a resident of Saunders county since 1869, when he homesteaded near Valparaiso. At that time there was no house between his place and the Platte river, 25 miles away. Indians frequently called at his home to solicit vegetables. He gave freely and was not molested. He has lived in Wahoo 53 years.
Mr. Tharp said he cast his first vote for Abraham Lincoln while stationed with the army at Rome, Ga. His only son, Dee Tharp, resides in Omaha. A daughter and one son died several years ago.
