Pastor Friedrich Wilhelm Daberkow was born June 29, 1868 in Pomerania, Germany. His parents, with 4 small sons, came to New York by ship, and, on May 12, 1879, arrived at West Point, Nebraska by train with 27 dollars. Since they needed to earn money, his father hired out as a carpenter and the boys herded cows. In May of 1882, they were able to buy 80 acres at $5 an acre. He paid $100 down and built a dugout to live in. This homestead was about 6 miles southeast of Wisner, Nebraska.
