from The Trail of the Loup, by H. W. Fogt, AM, 1906:
The minnesinger of the Loup, he was born in Lake county, Illinois, January 15, 1846, where he grew to manhood and got all the schooling he ever had. Here he farmed and composed rhymes. When twenty-three years old he set his face westward and came to Platte county, Nebraska. Here he lingered till August, 1871, when in company with Shepard, Scott and Stewart, pioneers spoken of elsewhere, he set out for the North Loud Valley. On the 7th day of September he selected his claim in Greeley county, lying above present-day Scotia. Mr. Kellogg was one of the organizers of Greeley county and became its first county superintendent. On January 30, 1879, he married Belle Scott, one of the earliest women to come into the Loup, who is more than usually conversant with all topics pertaining to early frontier life. They have five children living.

John Gage Kellogg
John Kellogg Beloved Pioneer Laid To Rest
Burial Made in Mt. Hope Cemetery, Scotia.
Simple Rites Held.
As simply and quietly as John G. Kellogg lived, were the last rites held in his memory, Monday afternoon, May 16.
Because of the rain, the services planned for Mt. Hope cemetery were led in the Methodist church at Scotia. Had John Kellogg been able to see, he would have rejoiced in meeting the many friends from pioneer families, those who had known him as Greeley county commissioner, or in North Loup on the board of education, besides the many of a younger generation who knew him simply as Mr. Kellogg.
The Seventh Day Baptist quartette, Mrs. A. H. Babcock, Mrs. W. G. Johnson, Albert Babcock and Dell Barber, accompanied by Mrs. James Johnson, sang "Crossing the Bar."
A eulogy by Rev. Hill, representing the Seventh Day Baptist people, for whom Mr. Kellogg had a place in his heart, told most eloquently of the position he held in his place of early Loup Valley history.
Pres. Carrel of the Friends College in Central City, who conducted the services as a close friend spoke quietly of Mr. Kellogg, using the 23rd Psalm and the 121st Psalm as the scripture.
The flowers which adorned the gray casket were of the spring-like variety that our villages offer at this season. Bearers were very appropriately relatives or old friends or sons of friends of the family, Clyde Keown, Francis Van Skike, Otto Bartz, Edwin Schudel, C. W. McClellan, and Harry Klinginsmith.
Burial was made in Mt. Hope cemetery, at Scotia, Miller Bros., being in charge.
The body arrived Monday from the Pasadena, Calif., home, accompanied by his daughter, Portia, who had tenderly cared for her father in his declining years, also his daughter, Mrs. Grace Smith, of San Dimas, another daughter, Mrs. Mary Peckham of Republic, Penn., was present at the last services. A son, Ashael, of Detroit, Mich., and a daughter, Florence, of Pasadena, were unable to be present.
The following account of Mr. Kellogg's long and useful life was prepared by members of the family:
John Gage Kellogg was born at "Gage's Corners," in Lake County, Ill., on January 15, 1846, and died at his home in Pasadena, Calif., on May 11, 1938, in his ninety-third year.
As a young man, Mr. Kellogg left his home in Illinois to become a pioneer in Nebraska, and in the fall of 1871, came with A. M. Stewart, S. C. Scott, Dan Benson and Alonzo Shepard into the North Loup Valley to become one of the earliest settlers in this immediate vicinity. Of those who came in that early party, he was the last survivor.
It was here, that on Jan. 30, 1879, he was married to Isabel Rose Scott, and together they lived on the Nebraska homestead for forty years. Here his children were born and here he participated in the development of new country seeing it grow form rude beginnings to what it is today.
Nineteen years ago he and Mrs. Kellogg moved to Pasadena, and there in 1920, they celebrated their golden wedding anniversary. It was during a visit to the old home two years later that death came to Mrs. Kellogg, and she was buried in Mt. Hope, the cemetery that John Kellogg had helped lay out years before and in which he had planted pine trees.
It seems particularly fitting that his last resting place should be there, beside her in this community with which he has been so actively identified.
Most of the friends gathered here today knew John Kellogg in his Nebraska days. Some perhaps have visited him more recently in his Pasadena home. There on Jan. 15, of this year, his friends gathered to congratulate him on his ninety-second birthday and during the next month he was able to read with interest the following books which they gave him: A Biography of Madam Curie, Amelia Erhart's Last Flight, and two novels, "The Great American Family,' and "Miss Bishop.'
Not only did his mind remain keen but he kept physically active. Until the last two months his was a familiar figure on his corner where he worked in his yard and greeted his neighbors as they passed by from day to day.
By all the friends, old and new, he was loved and honored for his kindly disposition, his sterling integrity, high sense of justice, and unfailing with and humor. A man whose children do, indeed, rise up and call "blessed."
