Sebastian and Anna have several sons, and did not want to see them serve in the army and perhaps be killed in a fruitless war, so they decided to take their entire family to the United States. Their oldest son Mathias was already serving for some years, since the age of 18. So when Mathias came home on leave, when he was about 22 years of age, the entire family quickly left town, boarded a steam ship, and sailed for America, before the army missed Mathias.1

Note*after 2 September 1902He (Original research by Galen W. Rezac, great-great-grandson of Sebastian Schoemann.)

"Sebastian was born near Gahlen, Germany on 15 Feb 1830. (EDIT: According to Germany, Births and Baptisms, 1558-1898 on www.ancestry.com, he was actually born in Sehlem, Germany.)

We think Sebastian was an only child, because his mother died when he was about 4 years of age. Then when he was about 10 years old, his father was accidentally killed by "run-away horses," and he was raised in an orphanage. he said he often served daily mass, as a young boy, but he never mentioned having any brothers or sisters.

All young German men were required to serve time in the army. Sebastian and Anna have several sons, and did not want to see them serve in the army and perhaps be killed in a fruitless war, so they decided to take their entire family to the United States. Their oldest son Mathias was already serving for some years, since the age of 18. So when Mathias came home on leave, when he was about 22 years of age, the entire family quickly left town, boarded a steam ship, and sailed for America, before the army missed Mathias.

The family landed at New York on July 4, 1877. So after arriving, they headed out west and spent the first winter in Wisconsin. In 1878 they moved to Kansas and homesteaded on the banks of the Kansas River, about 5 miles west of St. Marys.

Only 11 years after arriving in this county, Anna passed away on 2 Oct 1888 at their home, of heart disease.

Five years later, Sebastian remarried to a widow, Josephine Walleman Kramer.

On Tuesday, 2 Sept 1902, Sebastian went to morning mass, as was his custom, then still feeling fine, ate a hearty dinner, and went out into the back yard for a smoke. There he suffered a stroke and died. He was buried besides his first wife Anna at Mt. Calvary Cemetery, St. Marys. He was 72 years old." after 2 September 1902 at OBIT.1
