John George Schumm Family History

History 12














wolves away.. John George Schumm died in 1846 in this log hut. The second log hut, which was built soon afterwards, had two rooms on the first floor and two on the second floor which were used as bedrooms. Two doors from this log cabin are still in use in the present homestead, which was built in 1858 by George M. Schumm, and is still standing, which speaks well for the good timber and conscientious work that entered into the construction of the house. And another building which is still standing is the large barn of the homestead.


           The original 800 acres, divided into 5 farms of 160 acres, as they are today.
