I am a grandson of Eduard Valschin, from Glitt/Lichtenberg who came to Yuma with the Landaur and several families from Bukovina. There were about a dozen families and they were on 3- 4 different ships.
The families were Wenzel Blach, Wenzel Landauer, Paul Raedler, Andreas Turner, Eduard Valachin, Andreas Schneller, Ambros and Constandt Winkelbauer, Josef kortus, Frank - Ambros - Edward Kunzmann, and Richter and Schatz families.
All these families came from Bukovina together and farmed next to each other in Magee Pct, Yuma County as shown on plat maps.
All, or most, of these families are related back in Bukovina and some continued the marriages here in US.
Several of the families, including some Landaur, then migrated to Dorchester, Wisc. and Mason City, Iowa.
Then some of them again moved back to near Randolph, Nebraska and Cedar Rapids, Boone County, Nebraska.
Landaurs were in all these locations, and several still living in Boone County, NE.
We have been researching on all these families with hopes of finding all the intermarriage connections, and finding others to help share informations.

One tree said Elizabeth Reichert married Franz Redler -1864-1891,  arriving in New York 1890, and they had Ordina 1886-1961, Theresia 1888- an Agnes 1890 -

He's probably related to Ben Redler 

Archival records show Benedict Raedler from Russia traveling to New York leaving from the port at Hamburg arrived in the year 1884 on the ship named Westphalia. He was about age 22 years at the time and was listed in the customs manifest as a Child, Youngster.

Ben was in 1885 Clay County Nebraska with parents Paul 43 and Gertrude 36, siblings Dorothea 13, Johann 11, Joseph 6, Nicholaus 5, and Andreas eleven months.

Benedict "Rarlen", 22 married "Ermili" Trunde, 15, May 15, 1889, in Yuma.  Performed by Catholic priest James Hickey of Brighton..

Benedict "Raedler" proved up  a quarter in 18, 4N 47W in 1894, and Joseph Schneller 80 acres adjoining him in 1895. 

One tree said Joseph Schneller was born March 13, 1919 iN Bukovina, married Teresia Maurer in 1840 in Bukovina, and died 1904 in Yuma. The tree said their children were Franziska, Catherine 1836-1843, Johann 1836-1925, Franz 1842-1906, Andreas Charles Schneller 1845-1905, Maria 1847-1924, Albert 1864-, Katherian 1866-1919, and Gizella "Stella" 1878-1933.

Andres Schneller cash-claimed a quarter in 6, 3N 47W in 1891.

Andres Schneller is a stone cutter in 1891 Denver, living at 2107 Delgany

Andreas Schneller and family decided to emigrate to the US in 1887. Accompanying them and their seven children are Andreas' parents, Joseph and Maria, and brother Johann's eldest daughter, Matilda. Designated port of departure was Bremen, Germany

Schnellers sail for America on June 2, 1887 on board the steamship Carpathian. The Carpathian is a new ship and is to become famous some years later when it will go to the rescue of the sinking Titanic. Arrived at the port of New York.

Immediately took a train to Wisconsin. It is not known exactly where they went but their purpose was to visit friends from the old country. These friends try unsuccessfully to persuade the Schnellers to remain in Wisconsin, but for some reason they are insistent upon making their way to Colorado. Propaganda at the time in Europe and America painted a romantic picture of the opening of the west and of the free lands being given by the government if only you would live on them and work them a bit. While in Wisconsin, however, the Schneller's eldest child, Fannie, aged 15 dies of T.B.

Upon arrival in Colorado, in 1888, the Schnellers homestead N.E. of Yuma on a dry barren tract of land. This land is a complete and disheartening contrast to the green and forested rolling countryside they left in Bukovina. Joseph Schneller and his wife Maria and their granddaughter, Matilda, remain on the homestead while Andrew and family make their way to Denver.

In 1894 Andrew Schneller and family are farming in Randolph, Nebraska.

In 1897 the family is living out of a covered wagon in Montrose, Iowa, while they clear land they have rented of trees and build themselves a log cabin. Later they farm the land which was almost on the Missouri State border, near the Mississippi River.

In 1900 the Andrew Schneller family moves to Olpe, Kansas , a German settlement. Again Andrew tries his hand at farming but as in all the other places he does not make a living at it. He was never a farmer in the old country and seems to have no inclination for it. The family lives mainly from the proceeds of a patented medicine that Andrew brews up and sells the Germans in Olpe for rheumatism.

In 1901 family moves to Emporia, Kansas. Andrew takes up raising chickens. But in 1904 Cholera kills most of Andrew's chickens and he decided to give up farming.

In 1905 while the family is away visiting Barbara, now married and living in Olpe, Andrew, unemployed, dies by drinking carbolic acid. Family later says that Andrew accidently killed himself by mistakenly putting acid into a medicine he used to make for himself. However, note left from Andrew to his wife seems to discount this and both Emporia newspapers, print story of suicide on their front pages. The verdict of suicide is accepted by the coroner and Andrew is refused burial in the Catholic cemetery. At time of death Andrew leaves six children living at home. Two of his daughters are married, Minnie and Barbara. Andrew's first son, Ed, is living in Randolph, Nebraska.

  Joseph Schneller, born 13 Mar 1819 in Arbora, Bukovina; died 1904 in Yuma, Colorado. He was the

son of  Wenzel Schneller and  Anna Maria Kalhofer. He married  Teresia Maurer 17 Feb 1840 in

"Her son-in-law and daughter, Paul and Katharina (Schneller) Landauer left her with his brother when they moved to Oregon in 1905. "

From 1900 to 1904 there were  at least four occurrences of the county paying Sheedy (a Yuma merchant) for supplies for the "pauper" Schneller family. 

Maria Schneller is in the state hospital in Pueblo in 1910, 49, married.

In 1941 Wichita Frank W. (Grace) is a used car dealer living at 1419 Ida Avenue, and Frank A. (Caroline) is a laborer living at 438 1/2 Kelly.

Barbara 1876-1971 Findagrave # 24964427 has in Home City Cemetery, Marshall County.  So is Fred H. Miller 1869-1954

Frank Schroller was in Cope, Arapahoe County, Colorado (about thirty miles from Andrew and Joseph Schneller's claim)


Beginning in 1886-1887, German Bohemians left Glitt, Lichtenberg, Arbore, and Solka, Bukovina, traveling by rail, by ship across the ocean, then to the end of the railroad line in McCook, Nebraska, which is north/northwest of Ellis, Kansas. The immigrants were responding to the railroad’s advertisements of packages including cheap farm land, steamship fare, and free railroad tickets to their destination. The Bohemian settlers spent the winter in McCook, but then heard that in Yuma, Colorado, 125 miles further west, the  government was giving away land to anyone who would live on it and develop it. By July 1887, Bukovina immigrants like Andreas Schneller had already filed a declaration of intention to become a U.S. citizen and had built a one-floor house measuring 14 by 16 feet on land that he had claimed. Other immigrants included members of the Landauer, Turner, Trunde, Schatz, Fuchs, Winkelbauer, Korf, Krenzer, Baehr, Kinkle, Kunzman, Floshing/Wlaschin, Hackel, Blach/Block, Mathies, Kortus, Hickey, Heinzel, and Straub families .


Yuma is located on the High Plains in a vast, treeless steppe. At first the Bukovina immigrant community thrived because rains filled the streams and the grass was lushly green. But the rains ended in a few years so that the pioneers faced drought and financial ruin by 1894. Some packed their wagons and headed back east to Sutton, Nebraska, to join relatives. Others went south to Henrietta, Texas, where they picked cotton with freed black slaves and their descendants, then returned to Yuma a few years later. Another contingent joined Bukovina emigrants Franz and Louise Hickey in Dorchester in north-central Wisconsin but left again in the following spring. Along the way, an accident forced this group’s wagon train to halt in Mason City, Iowa, where some remained while the rest continued to Montrose, Iowa, and then southeast to Olpe, Kansas. A group from Yuma, including some who had returned from Henrietta, moved to Oregon.


Today Yuma pioneer descendants can still be found in Yuma although most are scattered in across the United States. Some have been seeking and recording the stories of their ancestors. For example, Paul Polansky can tell you about his great-great-grandmother, Theresia Maurer Schneller, who was born in Seewiesen, Bohemia, in 1823, married Josef Schneller in Fürstenthal, Bukovina, in 1840, and emigrated to Yuma, Colorado, in 1892 at the age of sixty-nine years. According to oral histories, she was blind, ill, and occasionally wandered off into the prairie alone. Her son-in-law and daughter, Paul and Katharina (Schneller) Landauer left her with his brother when they moved to Oregon in 1905. No record of her death or burial has been found, but apparently she was dead by 1907. Paul once interviewed a Yuma resident who knew the location of Josef’s and Theresia’s unmarked graves. This man said that some years after their deaths, a highway construction project necessitated the relocation of the cemetery and showed him where the unmarked graves are now located.

In 1900 Yuma County, Paul Landauer born October 1863, is married 13 years to Kattie Nov 1865, both Austria. Frank March 1885 AUSTRIA, THEN - ALL BORN IN cOLORADO, mELIO nOV 1887, jOSEPHUS oCT 1889, sELIA mAY 1890, kATTIE nOV 1890 (SIC), aMBROS aPRIL 1893, pAULINE fEB 1896, AND pAUL dEC 1899.


Theresia’s life took her across the Austro-Hungarian empire, then across the Atlantic Ocean, and halfway across the United States. As a girl, she played in the Bohemian Forest; as a young woman, she married and raised her family in the Carpathian foothills. Her life ended in darkness upon the vast treeless High Plains. But those who remembered held the keys to document of her life’s long journey.


Theresia’s son Andreas Schneller, who was mentioned above, left Yuma in 1894 and went to Dorchester. When the wagon train halted in Mason City in 1895, Andreas’s son Edward married a German-Russian immigrant Mathilda Redler and chose to remain there. But Andreas went on. He joined Bukovina families in Olpe, Kansas, where his first venture, a rented dairy farm, failed. His second effort, a chicken farm, ended with disaster when the birds died of cholera. He moved again, this time to nearby Emporia, where he attempted to be a door-to-door salesman and where on January 1, 1905, he committed suicide.


An interesting part of the Yuma story is that it appears to have been the location of the first Bukovina Society over one hundred years ago. They met on Sundays, usually at a farm home, to  share a meal, letters from back home, and photographs. Photographs taken in Yuma were found in Bukovina homes in the 1970s when Paul Polansky traveled there. In Solka, he even met an old man who had been born in Petersburg, Nebraska, and returned to Bukovina with his parents when he was about eight years old. This man, who was over ninety years old, still spoke some English and talked about pioneer life in Nebraska. Local people referred to him as “the American.”


The Schneller's, if buried in Yuma County, were probably placed in the Schlake Cemetery, about five miles northwest in Section 1, 4N 48W.  Yuma would have been fifteen miles away.
