Hinrich Relf (Henry) Stuhr
A Virtual Cemetery created by: Dennis Stuhr
Description: Henry Stuhr and Augusta Stoehr purchased combination (Norddeutscher Lloyd ship & Burlington Railroad) tickets from Bremen to Lincoln, Nebraska to homestead there. Henry was not the first born and tradition was to give the family farm to the eldest son which is still that way today. There is some indications Augusta was of Jewish descend also giving them 2 good reasons to leave family & their homeland. My father said his sisters told him Henry & Augusta eloped. It's possible they were sponsored by a Schwarting relative as his grandmother was a Schwarting. And so it was on 11 May 1873 they were married and they left the homeland from Bremen on the steamship Ohio and debarked at Baltimore on 30 May 1873 then hopped the train for Lincoln. In Lincoln he filed for a homestead and walked west to near Waco to claim the last available homestead (80 acres) in Beaver Township which was settled primarially by Germans. Augusta stayed in Lincoln and worked until a combination dug out and Sod House was constructed. Henry borrowed horses from neighbors to begin turning the prairie. In 1874 he purchased 2-80's of Burlington railroad land across the road north for $6/acre. On 20 Nov 1880 he received his homestead patent and purchased a $20 gold coin for good luck which was common folklore. In May 1937 the historical Stuhr farm owner Johann Stuhr came to stay with his brother (railroad Henry Stuhr) to convince a Stuhr relative to come back to Germany to take over his farm as Hitler implemented a policy in 1933 to keep German farms in the family so farmers could prosper. In the 1960's Karl Apetz went back to celebrate his confirmation and took pictures of the historical Stuhr farm near Oldenbrok where he was employed. A passenger record for Johann Stuhr the German farmer who came to York County, NE to convince a Stuhr relalive to come back with him to Germany indicated he was from Oldenbrok near Brake where Augusta was born.
