I am looking for any information on Johann "John" Schmidt Born June 16, 1858 in Germany. He immigrated to the United States around 1883, working first in Illinois for the railroad for a couple of years, than settling in Perham, Minnesota. He passed away Jan 11, 1941, In New York, but was brought back to Perham for burial.
He Married Caroline "Lena" Schult Born Dec. 19 1859 in Strausberg, Germany. She immigrated a couple years after her husband Johann did with their 31/2 year old daughter Fredricka Schmidt Born 1881. And Johann's brother William Schmidt. She also was buried in Perham Minnesota, she passed away on April 3, 1927.
