    This did come from a predominately German community in SW MN, Sleepy Eye. Thanks for your comment.

    Wow, I didn't know that AR8Jason. I have one side full blood Czech from Bohemia, but departed from Germany in 1875 and another side are full blood Germans departed from Germany around that time also. Both side came to America and both married the same type of Nationality here (Bohemia with Bohemia and German with German). Very interesting piece.

    Jason> That must be awesome to go back and read old diaries from that time of actual family members.
    There are Shoneman's in central south MN too.
