From various sources it has been shown that H. Nieman was the first settler in what is now known as Harvey County.  In June, 1869, Mr. Nieman took up a claim on the West White Water River (in what is now Richland township). Mr. Nieman was followed in July of the same year by William Lawrence and Hubbard Wilcox, who settled in the immediate vicinity. In the fall of 1869 William McOwen, Charles Schaefer, John Corgan, W. T. Wetheral, John Wright and S. Decker located in the vicinity of what is now the town of Sedgwick.
