Genealogy Family History of Surname Schoeberlein of Calhoun county Iowa

I wanted to include the little more I saw of the Frotscher family in the Calhoun County, Iowa History book.
Pp. 392.

Jack Russel SCHOEBERLEIN is one of four children of John and Belle Frotscher SCHOEBERLEIN and lived all of his life in Cedar Township of Rural Lohrville, Calhoun county, Iowa.

The dad - John Carl Schoeberlein born in Pittsburg Penn. usa. His ancestry came from the southwest region in west Germany in what is known as the Black forest region and maybe in the French Territory. His parents along with Rudolph, Conrad, Martin, Oscar and sister Hilda came to Iowa and lived on a Farm Northwest of Farnhamville. Iowa. He was sixteen old when he came to Iowa. He as a steam fitter while in Penn. After living in Iowa he installed Plumbing in new Hotel.

The mom - Belle Elisabeth Frotscher was born in Illinois and was only three months old when her parents, five other sisters and two brothers came to Iowa to make their home in Cedar township where they were educated in the country schools and farmed.

The dad and mom married 1915. Four children born here. Jeannie Ione [Des Moines], Ferris [ moved to Havre, Montana] , Jack Russel[ Cedar township] , Cecil [ Farnhamville] This article that I briefly edited loosely was written by Jack Schoeberlein

Comment: I did find Bertha C. McKinley at Havre, Hill county Montana - 1930 Census. It said married. Though another shot of information claims she was not married. Birth around 1890. another Info census I had said she was born around 1884? The William Mckinley she was Married to worked for the Steam railroad. He had something to do with the Cars.

None of my people were from Baden. Jaeschke in this group from Danzig. Vogels from Bohemia.
Did August Seil know the Dohrmans in Joliet. Why can't I find them on the ILLINOIS census.
Alvina should have at least been born in time for the census. Did the Frotschers meet there prior. I think so. I read that Dohrman's ran an elevator. What was Wlm. Seil's occupation. He might have worked for some large Farmers in the area maybe those who were on his naturalization papers. There is a Farmers Directory. Did Dohrmann or Frotschers declare citizenship in Illinois or in Iowa.? what was the Immigration year?

- I looked up Viola, Illinois, and noted that they have had a Threshers reunion. This is Not the first time Threshers have been mentioned lately! I hope you will visit the village on line and see the beautyful old thresher. I did find the Neirs on a census.

- Bertha and McKinley in Montana. Interesting in the light of my research about the Fehrings in the gold mining towns. For curiosity sake, I should check census for the two.
At this time I have been wondering why the decision to move to Paton and Farnhamville Iowa. Who decided first and what promted this.
Even for William Seil at Joliet, did he go to Iowa because these people did. If he knew that John Seil family there at Joliet then he may have learned of Fred Schroeder. Or he knew Fred from back home in Germany Dahlenburg and Nahrendorf. Fred heard about Fred Meyer at Highland area in Greene county.
- Where was the Krugs from?

Well thanks for stopping in. You saw a quite a bit of Family History. A little speculation and questions. Come back soon.
