    6 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) SKOBLIK, Martin (I3)
    7 Another Franz Heinrich Kramer (b. 1822) son of the heuerman Arnd Henrich Kramer from the farm of Bosche in Lehmden and his wife, Maria Agnes Su'dbeck also left on 3/16/1859 to settle in Gross-Rippin in the same general area. His brother, Johan Clemens and sister, Maria Catharina followed shortly thereafter. Although some left, Kramers still live in Steinfeld today. KRAMER (I381)

    9 Arrived in the US May 21, 1867 with sister, Gertrude and an unknown brother who is believed to have settled in the Chicago, IL area. Joseph was a shop clerk before he got his first farm. He was later in charge of road maintenance in the Center Township area and all his sons helped. Joseph owned two farms in his lifetime. In the early 1900's he moved to a house in Farley. His daughter Edith, built a house next door. KELLER, Joseph (I480)

He was married the same day as his sister and Frank Klostermann and Frank Osterhaus and Elizabeth Klaus. They celebrated their Silver Anniversary together on Charles' farm and were stranded there for two days by a snowstorm. They also celebrated their Golden Annniversary together. Married names for 2 daughters are given in the Dyersville Book: Mrs. J.J. O'Brien and Mrs. Al Friedman. Don't know which is which. KRAMER, Carl (I94)
    20 Came to America with his sister, Agnes, and her husband Gerhard Beckmann about 1857. After marrying Mary Ellen, they settled on a farm five miles east of Dyersville neighboring the Carl Kramer homestead. In 1905, they retired to a residence in South Dyersville. Frank was the organizer and first secretary of the Hickory Valley Creamery. KRAMER, Franz Henrich (I98)
    21 Changed the spelling of Skoblik to Scoblic and talked his brother Joseph into doing likewise. The only Skoblik not married at St Mary's. SKOBLIK, Francis Martin (I37)

He died enroute to the funeral of his brother Frank. Unidentified, he was buried in Kansas City, Missouri. A week later, his family hearing he had not arrived in Dyersville traced him to KC. They had him exhumed and reburied in Lexington. KRAMER, Clemens (I95)

    26 Destruction caused by the Swedish-Netherlands troops during the 30 years war, 1618-1648 resulted in few people left in the area. By 1665 there were 12 families again rebuilding and working on their farms. By 1699 we find a few more along with the farms BOSCHE-OSTERHUS (Ho'vel) and GROSS OSTERHUS. The population was back up to 210 souls. One can imagine how 200+ people lived on a handful of farms. Every available space was occupied. The farm, ROENBECK, supposedly had 60-70 living there. Eventually little heuerhauses were built for some of the more permanent residents who worked the land for the owners. They subsidized their income by digging peat, making wooden shoes, and spending the haymaking season in Holland. On top of that was knitting and weaving to make clothes for the family and hopefully to sell to others. KRAMER (I381)

One O Donnchada sept (Irish clan or tribe ruled by a patriarch) was located in south County Kilkenny, another in County Galloway and another in County Cavan and another, the best known, in West Cork whence they migrated to County Kerry forming two branches, one with its stronghold at Ross Castle on Lough Leine near Killarney, and the other with its sept centre in the eastern part of the DONAHUE, Ellen (I1320)

    38 Even the major farmers needed to do other things beside farming. Gross Osterhus had a brick making factory by 1841. By 1854, he produced all the brick and roof tile for the church being built in Steinfeld. In 1879 the guesthouse and foodmarket of Osterhus-Bering was founded. KRAMER (I381)
