Both Henry and Ellen were born in Gallway, Ireland. It is not clear whether they were married in Ireland or after their arrival in the United States From the birth date of their oldest child, Ellen, their marriage took place around 1855.

They supposedly landed in New Orleans and migrated northward from there to four different cities: Essex, Iowa; Henderson, Kentucky; Mt. Vernon, Illinois and finally Howell, Indiana (Evansville) about 1895 due to the L&N Railroad, which proved to be their means of livelyhood.

Canistota Clipper, Canistota South Dakota 8-10-1905
Mr. and Mrs. H.F. Spaulding received a phone late Monday evening from
Sioux Falls, South Dakota saying that if they wished to see their daughter-in-law, Mrs.
Boyd Spaulding, alive, they must come at once. They had only a little over an
hour to get ready and catch the train at Montrose, South Dakota. The drive of 12 miles
was made in 59 minutes, arriving at the station just 5 minutes before the train
pulled out. But all of this haste was to no avail. Maude was dead before they
started. Yes, before the telephone message was received.
She had been out in the yard playing with the children until 15 minutes
until six when she went into the house to prepare supper. She started to
generate the gasoline stove and it must have been then that the attack seized
her, for when a nearby neighbor, upon hearing the outcries of the children,
rushed into the house, he found the stove blazing and her lying on the bed
expiring. Medical aid was hastily summoned but even had they been there
when the attack came they could not have saved her from the heart failure.
Maude Spaulding was well known in Canistota where she spent her
girlhood years. She was a good wife and mother. Her early demise is deeply
felt by all her relatives, and to her young husband and children the blow was
indeed a heavy one. The Canistota people sympathize with them in their grief.
The casket containing the remains of the deceased lady arrived
Wednesday and was taken to the home of her mother, Mrs. Sherman. The funeral
will be held from the Methodist Church this afternoon.

Canistota Clipper, Canistota, South Dakota 3-14-1907
On Friday afternoon of last week at 4 o'clock a horrible accident
occurred by which Grant Sherman lost his life. He went to Monroe, South Dakota on the
afternoon freight and came back to Canistota on the return freight. Arriving
here he attempted to step onto the depot platform from the immigrant car,
where he was riding, but missed his footing and slipped beneath the rapidly
moving train and before it could be stopped Grant received the injuries which
resulted in his death four hours later.
As soon as the train was stopped Grant was taken from beneath the wheels
and an examination showed that his left arm was nearly severed at the wrist
and that his right leg was ground almost to pulp in the region of the knee.
It was a sight which made strong men turn pale.
He was carried to the home of his mother, Mrs. Sherman and doctors
Melvin of Parker, South Dakota and Clauser of Bridgewater, South Dakota were summoned to aid the
local physician in amputating the injured limbs. But the shock was so great
and the loss of blood so enormous that he never sufficiently rallied so that
they dared to attempt it. After remaining in a semi-conscious state until a
little after 8 o'clock Grant Sherman breathed his last.
Tom Murphy, Agent Swartz, and part of the train crew witnessed the
accident and from them we learned that Grant was riding on the ladder which
had been nailed to the side door of an immigrant car so that the shipper could
climb in and out of the car with more convenience. In attempting to step to
the platform his other foot slipped off the ladder and he fell down between
the car and the depot platform. He escaped the wheels of that car but the car
following had the same kind of ladder which struck him and threw him down and
it was then in rolling along that his leg was crushed.
He threw his left arm up on the depot platform and when another ladder
on the next car following struck that arm whirled him around and the same arm
that he had threw up on the platform the wheels of the car passed over and
nearly severed the hand. And by that time the train was brought to a
standstill. During all of this time he was rolling and tumbling along by the
trucks and brake beams, a distance of about 30 feet.
Grant was between 17 and 18 years of age. He was one of those happy,
good-natured boys whom everybody liked. He had a great fondness for the rail
roading and was only waiting to reach the necessary age to secure the position
of break man. People have often expressed fears that Grant would meet his
untimely end from catching on the trains and working around them. A habit
boys in all towns have but a habit we hope the Canistota boys will
discontinue.
The funeral was held from the Methodist Church on last Sunday afternoon
at 2 o'clock. The large edifice would not nearly accommodate the crowd. A
great many people returned home on account of no room. Nearly all of Grant's
school mates were present, most of them with tears in their eyes.
Vernon Toland, John Darby, Ted Graham, Bert Meyers, Clair Van Woert, and
Sam Ferguson, all former school mates of Grant, were pallbearers. Reverend
Hendricks spoke the word of cheer and comfort to the surrounding relatives.
Internment was made in the Canistota cemetery.
We all miss the cheerful, happy, Grant Sherman whose tragic death is
deplored by everybody.

From West Bend (Wisconsin) newspaper dated June 26, 1918

At her home in the town of Wayne, Mrs. Clara Koerber, nee Wagner, breathed her last on Monday, June 24, 1918. She had been ill since February. A few weeks ago a paralytic stroke rendered her helpless, and gradually her life ebbed away.
Deceased was born in the town of Wayne on September 2, 1848. She was united in marriage to John Koerber on November 8, 1865. They were the parents of one child, Margarethe (Mrs. Joe Umbs), whom she leaves together with her husband. The couple two years ago celebrated their golden wedding.
Mrs. Koerber came from an old settler couple who took up a homestead in the primal wilds of the town of Wayne. She was a good woman in every respect, one who well filled her place in her home and in the community. Her life was the helpful, loving and forbearing life of the true Christian, and she will continue to live in the hearts dear to her.
The funeral will be held tomorrow, Thursday, afternoon at one o'clock, with services in St. John's Evangelical church at Kohlsville, Rev. V Schmeiser officiating. Interment will be made in the cemetery of that congregation

From West Bend (Wisconsin) Pilot dated November 19, 1925

Mrs. George Basler, nee Elizabeth Wagner, who for many years was a resident of the town of Wayne, passed away in death at home of her sons John and George, at Lomira, on Nov. 11, death resulting from a complication of diseases and the infirmities of old age. Mrs. Basler was born in Germany on Nov. 28, 1844, being a daughter of William and Margaretha Wagner. She came with her parents to America in 1847, the family settling in the town of Wayne. The daughter married George Basler on Nov. 11, 1863, and the couple continued their residence in Wayne for many years. The husband preceded his wife in death about twenty years ago. Mrs. Basler was the mother of eight children, three of whom preceded her in death, among the latter being Mrs. Henry Bachman. The children surviving her are: John, George and William Basler of Lomira; Henry Basler of Kohlsville, and Margaretha (Mrs. William Jaeger) of the town of West Bend. She is also survived by two brothers - John Wagner of Cadott and William Wagner of Theresa - and by nine grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. Mrs. Basler continued her residence on a farm near Kohlsville until eight years ago, since which time she made her home with the sons above named. Her funeral was held on Saturday, Nov. 14, at 2 o'clock in the afternoon under the auspices of St. John's church near Kohlsville, interment being made in the congregation's cemetery. Mrs. Basler was truly a woman of sterling worth and character, a loving wife and mother, and a kind and considerate neighbor. Her life of 80 years, 11 months and 13 days, was a long span, yet every day of it was filled with kindness to all about her, and her death has cast a deep gloom not only among those nearest and dearest to her in her family circle, but among all who had the good fortune of knowing her while a resident near Kohlsville and also at Lomira. The bereaved children and other relatives have our profound sympathy.

Hi,

We recently got back from 10 days of visiting and genealogizing in Nebraska
and Iowa. Got some more information on the Mary German descendants. It's
very hard to research in Nebraska because they only have the marriage
records in the court houses. The State has the births and deaths in Lincoln
and they only let you look at three records a day and they are $10. each.

South Dakota charges $10 for each name, if they find it or not, to check
their index for marriage, birth and death.

While we out in Nebraska, we went to a birthday party of one of your
relatives. She is
the oldest living relative that I know of on the Straub family tree. She is
the daughter of John A. Richart 1868-1931 and Elizabeth Kloster 1876-1974.
John is the son of Mary Ann
German and her first husband, Anthony P. Richart 1835-1871. She is Ellanora
Richart Weiler who was 105 on April 26. She was still living by herself
until about two years ago when she broke her hip. She is real alert and
visited real nice with everyone there. She is quite blind. We picked up
her sister, Elizabeth (Betty) De Camp who will be 97 on May 22 and also
lives by herself. When we drove into the driveway, Betty came out of the
house and got into the car before we had a chance to really help her.

Several relatives at the party again promised to send some missing
information. Hopefully they come through this time. Thought you would be
interested in this. I've finally got the German family typed in the Master
Genealogist Software and am now in the process of typing details in such as
cause of death, burial place, occupations, residence and source of
information. I may have to live to 105 to get this all in as I have close
to 13,400 names now in the Straub genealogy. Karen doesn't think much of my
idea to put Roundup on the lawn so I have more time to work on genealogy.

I don't know if I told you that we went to Beiringen, Wuert. Germany last
summer, but didn't get much new information as they get rid of the
tombstones every 25- 30 years and bury on top of the old graves.

Still haven't found any trace of Erasimus.

Take care & God Bless!

Your cousin,

Leon Straub

50 !Im Buch "Wider das Vergessen" ist sein Einsatz im II. Weltkrieg geschildert.

!Von der Deutschen Dienststelle Berlin erhielt ich Unterlagen über seinen Arbeitsdienst und seinen aktiven Einsatz und die Gefangenschaft im II. Weltkrieg.

Die Familie Alois und Emilie Kunkel war mit zwei Soldatensöhnen am Kriegsgeschehen beteiligt.
Alois Kunkel und seine Ehefrau Emilie, geb. Aulbach, hatten sechs Kinder, davon zwei Söhne und vier Töchter.
Sie betrieben in ihrem Anwesen, damals Haus-Nr. 91, ab 1968 umbenannt in Hauptstrasse 63, eine kleine Landwirtschaft.
Die beiden, auf den nachfolgenden Fotos abgebildeten Söhne, waren, wie nachfolgend beschrieben, vom Kriege mitbetroffen:

Eugen, geboren am 27. Dezember 1923.
Nach der Volksschule erlernte er das Schneiderhandwerk. Mit einigen anderen Gleichaltrigen aus Leidersbach, nämlich Paul Bauer, Helmut Ronalter und Reinhold Löffler, sowie Eugen Scherf aus Ebersbach, wurde Eugen im Frühjahr 1941 zu den Messerschmidt-Werken nach Regensburg dienstverpflichtet. Anschließend wurde er nach zwei oder drei Tagen Heimataufenthalt am 7. April 1942 zur Wehrmacht, und zwar zum Bodenpersonal der Luftwaffe nach Crailsheim an der Jagst einberufen. Nach der dortigen Grundausbildung kamen Eugen Kunkel und Eugen Scherf nach Mont-de-Marsan in Südfrankreich, südlich von Bordeaux, wobei Eugen Kunkel der dortigen 4. und Eugen Scherf der 1. Kompanie angehörten.
Doch dann trennten sich die Wege der beiden. Im Laufe des Krieges war Eugen beim Bodenpersonal als Waffenwart zur Pflege der Bordwaffen bei verschiedenen Jagdgeschwadern auf mehreren Militär-Flugplätzen, insbesondere in Rußland, eingesetzt. Bei Kriegsende geriet Eugen in russische Kriegsgefangenschaft, wobei er in einem Gefangenenlager mit Arbeitseinsatz wohl bei Kiew untergebracht war. Etwa einen Monat vor der am 20. Juni 1948 stattgefundenen Währungsreform kehrte Eugen, von Krankheit und Entbehrung gezeichnet, nach Leidersbach in sein Eltern­haus zurück.
Als er damals in Sulzbach den Bahnhof verließ, traf er zufällig den Ebersbacher "Hannes'e Karl", also Karl Schüßler, der mit seinem Pferdefuhrwerk zum Lagerhaus, später "Baywa" gefahren war. Karl Schüßler erbot sich sofort, Eugen mit nach Hause zu nehmen, womit dem damals sehr geschwächten Eugen der lange Fußmarsch vom Bahnhof Sulzbach bis nach Leidersbach erspart blieb.
Seine Heimkehr war ein Freudentag, für ihn wohl am meisten, aber auch für die ge­samte Familie.
Eugen benötigte längere Zeit, bis die Wasseransammlungen aus seinem Körper aus­geschieden waren.
Er verstarb am 14. Oktober 1980.
