NORTH PLATTE, Neb. — Of all the people who have moved to Nebraska, few who are alive today can say they did so in a covered wagon. Linda Smith of Cozad and Sandra Dunkel of Broken Bow can. For them, the trip led to a lifetime of memories.
The women were originally from Killingly, Conn. Their parents, Ernest and Dorothy Elfgren, had six children. From oldest to youngest, they were: Oscar, Carl, Sandra, Roger, Linda and Donna.
