He left Europe and landed in the America's at Lima, Peru. He then worked his way north and entered the United States at El Paso, Texas on 28 Feb 1908. He went from Texas to Minnesota where I find several more families by the name of Guggemos. He married Ida L Witzel there in 1920. Sly and Ida traveled from place to place working at nearly any job during the depression. Their oldest son George died at 10 years of age in Cody, Wyoming.
They ended up in Washington state where they settled down.
