Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Dec. 18, 1837, Czech Republic
Death: Feb. 5, 1875
Richardson County
Nebraska, USA

Anna Musil was born in Kuklik, Nove Mesto, Moravia. She was married to Frank Shinn in 1860. They spent twelve years in Kuklik where all but one of their seven children were born. They then moved to Krucenburk, Bohemia where Anna, their youngest child was born. After spending two years there, they heard of the opportunities in America and in May of 1874 made their dreams come true. They arrived in Baltimore, Maryland and headed out for Nebraska. They came to Richardson County where Charles Zulek helped them find the Storant place. $1,900. was paid for the 160 acres.

Sadness and sorrow struck the hearts of the family February 5, 1875 when Anna died. They had not been in America a full year even. She was buried on the prairie on this farm near Humboldt, Humboldt Precinct, Section 6, Richardson County, Nebraska, because at this time there were no cemeteries.

She was the mother of Josephine, Minnie, Thomas, Frank,Jr. and Anna. Two infants died in their native country before they moved to America.

Your memory lives on, my mother showed me where the lilac bush marked your grave, so sad that you have no marker. This is my tribute to you, you can now forever be linked to your family-
