  • Notes 
    • Gottlieb (Jon) Schlehuber, was born February 29, 1801. in Germany (Prussia), we think his first name could have been (Jon). It look as though that was on and early 1840 Federal census. We think he came to America in about 1839 or 1840, since he make application to become a citizen on October 8, 1840. This is therefore to certify, that the said Gotlieb Schlehuber has complied with the laws of the United States in such case made and provided, and is therefore admitted a Citizen of The United States. Andrew Keifer, a citizen of the United State, proxies residence and character for Gotlieb. Gotlieb had to renounce and adjure all allegiance and fidelity to every foreign Prince Potentate, State of Sovereignty whatsoever and particularly to the Grand Kuke of Hesse Castle. Gotlieb worked as a farmer, and a milkman, in Cincinnati, Ohio. The family lived on Colerain Pike. In about 1883 Gotlieb and Kristina, left for Nebraska. Their daughter-in-law had died in 1882, so they took with them there grandson Charles Louis. They went to Custer county, Nebraska. We are not sure why, but a good guess would be other family or close friends, had already went a head, and wrote back of the vast lands. After proving he was a citizen, Gotlieb could homestead, for land in the State of Nebraska. So they built a house, planted a crop, and garden on or about April 1,1889. The homestead record read: December 21, 1886 received of Gotlieb Schlehuber the sum of Six dollars no cents, being the amount of fee and compensation of Register and Receiver for the entry of NE" Se" of section 3 in Township 16 of Range 24, under section No. 2290, revised Statutes of the United States. Application number 12128 is made for the purpose of actual settlement and cultivation, that said entry is made for my own exclusive benefit, and not directly or indirectly for the benefit or use of any other person or persons whomsoever, and that I have not heretofore had the benefit of the homestead laws. Signed Gottlieb Schlehuber. Sworn to and subscribed this 21st day of December 1886. When Gottlieb died Kristina as widow took over and stayed on the land and worked the ground even though she was 87 years old at the time. She had to file out a Testimony of Claimant, to prove she had worked the land and had a house. Some of the people she knew had to sign that they had seen her doing the work. An that no children were living there and helping her. Kristina's inventory was: One sod house 20 x 20 ft A pole and sod roof 2 windows and 1 door, $75.00 Sod and pole roof $50.00. 1 Cave and cellar $25.00 and 1 ground spring 100 forest and trees $50.00, 10 acres under cultivation $40.00 Total $240. Do you have any farm implements do you own this claim. In Have none - hire my work done. What domestic animals do you have. 2 cows State what articles of furniture. 1 cook stove and utensils, chairs, table, cupboard-beds and bedding. The last winter she was there, corn was only .04 cents a bushel, so they were burning the corn for heat. That spring they headed for Oklahoma hearing of the Cherokee lands that were going to be opened. Christina died at Pawnee, Oklahoma. Later when Charles was older he had her moved to Stillwater, Oklahoma, cemetery. She is buried beside her son George. Laurence Schlehuber and his wife, who at on time did so research into our family. Stated that Gottlieb and his wife Kristina had 12 children, but only 6 are to be found.
      Christina (Katrina) Bean had been married before, and had a daughter, by the name of Mary.[marshall4.FTW]
