My great great grandparents were Frank Joas and Katherine Hemauer Joas. Both came from Germany. Frank came from there in 1857 according to the 1910 census. At that time they lived in Charlestown in Calumet County. I think they lived in Gravesville, a little settlement there. They had four children who were living in 1910, two daughters Rose and Anna, my greatgrandfather Joseph and one other son who's name I'm not remembering now. (Maybe someone knows. I'd like to know more about all the other siblings.) A bit ago I was looking at plat maps for Calumet county and was surprised to see other Joas land that didn't belong to Frank Joas or his children. Some I believe were near Stockbridge where Joseph and wife Anna settled. That confused me. Are those Joas' families related? Or are they unrelated Finnish Joas families? Or other?
