Bothwell/Roberts/Bratney - 1880s&90s

My Bothwell ancestors moved to Nebraska in the early 1870s and are fairly well-documented in Fillmore & Thayer Counties. However, the matriarch of the family died in Hastings in 1888- which I understand is in Adams County - and at least one child (Earl V. Bothwell) was born there in 1893. I'm wondering if a married daughter or a daughter-in-law's family lived there.
The married daughter would be Jane (Jennie) Bothwell Bratney - we think her husband is WA Bratney.
The daughter-in-law - mother of Earl V - would be Estella May Roberts, b. 1874 in Marshall Co, Ill, d. of James A (?) Roberts and Harriet Helms Roberts.
Also there might be a son we've lost sight of - Jeremiah Bothwell, a printer.
Do any of these names sound familiar to anyone?
