An elderly family member related the following:  “Albert Schild, a son of Fred Schild, recalls his father telling him of the long, uncomfortable trip. One of the children became very ill and Fred recalls his mother praying and weeping.  In Germany they were farmers. The house and the stable were built together in one long building, and the stable was scrubbed and kept as clean as the house.”

According to the obituary of their daughter, Adele, they settled on a farm west of Gerardy, northwest of Hanover when the came to the United States.
