       GEORGE F. BURGER.--In Section 19,
    Clatonia township, George Frederick Burger
    is the owner of two hundred and forty acres
    of land, besides which he has a lauded estate
    of four hundred and eighty acres in Clay
    county, Kansas, the latter property being im-
    proved with two distinct groups of farm
    buildings and being under the direct manage-
    ment of his sons, John A. and Carl S. Rela-
    tive to the family history adequate record is
    given in the sketch of George S. Burger, on
    other pages of this work, and representatives
    of the name have played a worthy part in
    the social and industrial development of
    Gage county, where the family home was es-
    tablished in the pioneer days.
       George F. Burger was born in Bavaria,
    Germany, April 3, 1863, a son of John L. and
    Margaret M. (Rueter) Burger, and he was
    two years old at the time of the family immi-
    gration to America. He was reared and edu-
    cated in the state of Illinois and was fourteen
    years of age when he accompanied his parents
    to Gage county, Nebraska. He continued to
    assist in the work of the home farm until his
    marriage, in 1887, and thereafter he farmed
    on land rented from his father until 1890,
    when he purchased a farm of one hundred
    and twenty acres near his present homestead
    in Clatonia township, his father having given
    him one hundred and twenty acres and he
    having purchased an additional one hundred
    and twenty acres. When he located on his
    present home farm the same had buildings
    representing an investment of about five hun-
    dred dollars, and since that time he has shown
    his progressiveness by making the best of
    permanent improvements, including the erec-
    tion, in 1901, of a commodious and modern
    house of nine rooms, he having expended
    fully five thousand dollars in buildings and
    other improvements on the place, besides hav-
    ing shown equal progressiveness in the im-
    proving and developing of his farm property
    in Kansas, where he made his first investment
    in 1907. Mr. Burger has been recognized as
    a specially energetic and enterprising farmer
    and has given particular attention to the rais-
    ing of high-grade swine, of which he ships
    an average of a carload each year.
       Mr. Burger is independent in politics, and
    he and his wife are communicants of the Lu-
    theran church. He is one of those vigorous
    men who have made full use of the advantages
    offered in connection with the development of
    the natural resources of Gage county, and is
    one of the substantial citizens of the county.
       April 15, 1887, Mr. Burger wedded Miss
    Minnie Ulrich, who was born in Illinois,
    January 20, 1867, a daughter of Charles Ul-
    rich, who became a pioneer of Gage county,
    other pages of this work giving interesting in-
    formation concerning the Ulrich family. Of
    the children of Mr. and Mrs. Burger the eld-
    est is Margaret, who is the wife of John
    Rehms, of Clatonia township; John A. and
    Carl S. have charge of their father's exten-
    sive farm property in Kansas, as previously
    noted, and they have an efficient coadjutor in
    the person of their younger brother Walter;
    Anna is the wife of August Hinke, of Saline
    county; and Herman and Edward remain at
    the parental home.
