Nicholas parents are:
Johann Boie born 12-2-1785 Dithmarschen, Germany died 20-11-1830 (same) married with Gesche Kroeger-Boie b.24-9-1791 Neuenkoog, Dithmarschen, Germany died 3-7-1828 (same). They had have 9 children between 1811 - 1826.

Nicholas Boie was born in Germany, July 21, 1821. In 1850 he was married to Cecilia Tonner and three years later they emigrated to America and located in the woods in the town of New Holstein, one mile south of the village. The task set before him and his life partner was no easy one. Located in a dense forest with little or no experience they began the work of carving out a home. The privations and hardships which they underwent would have discouraged a less determined couple and caused them to abandon the work, but not so with this couple, for they were determined and their efforts were crowned with success.

For nearly fifty years, they resided on the farm which they secured from the government when they located in New Holstein. They disposed of the farm about 1903 and moved into the village where they spent their declining years enjoying the fruits of their labor. About 1908, Mr. Boie's health began to fail, owing to old age, and he was given every care and comfort that his children could secure for him.

During his long residence in New Holstein he was recognized as an upright and patriotic citizen, a good neighbor, devoted husband and father. He is survived by his widow, three sons, John of Clark county, Henry and Wm. Of Spokane, Washington, and six daughters, Mesdames, Ferd Hachez, Fred Matzen, Aug. Hansen of New Holstein, E. W. Pauisen of Chilton, Chas. Sebelin and Albert Arps of Ouray, Colorado.
