    • Notes 
      • He left Bohemia because he wasn't the oldest and so would not inherit anything. Came to America in 1862 with Eva, Catherine and Francis. A brother Matthias also came at the same time. Martin settled first in Chicago where Catherine and Francis died of smallpox. They moved to the Twin Cities area be tween 1863-1865.
      • An aunt lived with them there. She became ill and went to the hospital where she died. When they went to the hospital to claim the body they were told no one by that name existed. By 1867, they were living in the New Prague area and Lanesburg and Lexington Townships where Martin was a carpenter. By 1880, the Skobliks were living near Bechyn, MN. The farm they purchased near LeCenter, Jan 31, 1874, had been mortgaged for $600 (he only paid $450 for it) on Oct 20, 1876. The guess is he built a new house. He lost the farm to foreclosure Aug 21, 1880. Martin helped build St. Mary's Catholic Church in Bechyn in about 1882. All the Skobliks except Francis Martin were married in this church.It was replaced about 1913-14. It was moved and rebuilt into a dance hall and warehouse. Martin personally paid the passage for several people from Bohemia to this country. There were 112 wagons and carriages in his funeral train. The first one was at the church before the last one left his farm. A man's prestige was measured by the number of vehicles in his funearal train. This was very big for a funeral. A brother of Matthias and Martin reportedly went to Italy and settled later in Pennsylvania. The family has never had contact with this brother. The Pennsylvania Scoblick family is no relation. They were originally Scopelletti but changed the name in America. (Per letters by JLS to John Scoblick and Joanne Cloos' research)
