I am trying to locate Joseph KAIL, an immigrant from Austria/Bohemia, who lived in Foster County and whom I believe has connections to Iowa KAIL families.
Here is the information I have found about Joseph thus far:
1900 US Census, IA, Dallas County, Washington Twp., ED 20, Sheet 9B, Line 76:
KAIL Joseph, Boarder, W, M, Sep 1882, 17, single, self/father/mother born Bohemia, Occup. Farm hand
1910 US Census, ND, Foster County, Birtsell Twp,, ED 82, Sheet 11A, Line 18:
KAIL Joseph, Hired Man, W, M, 24, single, self born Austria, father/mother born Germany, Occup. Farm laborer
October 1909, Konrad KAIL immigration on the Baltic, ship manifest says destination is brother Joseph KAIL in Barlow, ND. (EllisIsland.org)
North Dakota Naturalizations Record Index:
Surname Given Name Country Papers Date County Volume Page
KAIL, Joseph Emanuel Austria 1st 30 Mar 1907 Foster D-3 018
KAIL, Joseph Emanuel Austria 2nd 2 Oct 1912 Foster P-12 002
KAIL, Robert Austria 1st 10 Aug 1907 Foster D-3 035
Joseph had 4 brothers who came to the US: Robert, Heinrich (Henry), Konrad, and Franz (Frank). All of them - except Joseph apparently - settled in Iowa. All of these KAILs came from Rokitnitz im Adlergebirge, a town in NE Bohemia which was then a part of Austria-Hungary.
I’d like find out any subsequent events in the life of this Joseph KAIL. Did he ever marry? Did he continue to live in North Dakota or did he move onto somewhere else?Where and when did he die? Where is he buried?
Also, is there a WWI Draft Registration record for this Joseph KAIL?
If you have any information that might help me with my search, please contact me.
