About Johannes Heil

Born in the German settlement of Frank, Russia.

Traveled down the Volga river to the Black and Caspian seas working with his father as a shoemaker. He learned to read, write, and speak in German, Russian, Turkish, and English.

While walking through the streets of Laube, Russia at night, he spotted Maria Margereta through her window. He told his father about his interest and he arranged for the marriage.

Came to America with his wife, oldest daughter, and father and family in May 1902. They first lived in Hoisington, Kansas, then to Ordway CO, Sugar City, CO, Russel County KS, and finally Bayard, NE around 1920.
