I have gathered considerable details on the Boie, Hachez and Luehr families from the mid-1800s in New Holstein, and would enjoy corresponding with anyone interested in these families or early New Holstein history.
Those who arrived from Holstein were: > Nicholas Boie [Nicolaus Boie or Boje] and his wife whose maiden name was Cecilia Tonner, with their oldest child Elise Boie.
> Ferdinand Hachez and his wife Louise with their son, also named Ferdinand Hachez.
> John Luehr [Luhr} and his wife whose maiden name was Anna Margaretha Groth, and their oldest child John Luehr [Luhr].
