Johns Dubas family line is only the tip of the iceberg of Dubas family in and around Nebraska. My grandpa too was raised near Fullerton Nebr and moved to Elyria I think about 1898. Purchased a large piece of land on the northlloop river about three miles down from Fort Hartsull (sp). He married the bell of the county Maria Kusek and she had 7 children Cella,Eva,ED,Floyd,Ted my dad,Adam and Kate.
Adam, for those of your around Grand Island and Kearney, founded Dubs drive in sporting goods which was a great fishing and hunting store for years in the central Nebraska area.
The farm is still owned and operated by Ken Dubas, son of Ed above.
I will complete more of the genealogy as soon as possible.
