  9. Frederick Schukar, born 1872, Fayette County, Illinois
    - died 22 September 1964, probably in Canada

    Fred homesteaded near Bulwark, Alberta, Canada, in 1905. In 1906 he returned with his brother, Robert, who filed on the quarter adjoining. They then built a sod shack with a shingled roof halfway on the dividing line and thus conveniently solved the residence requirements for the two quarters. An Iowa City newspaper article in January, 1959, told of Fred's visit to his brother William in Iowa. At that time, Fred and William were the only living children of August and Bertha Schukar. Fred never married. Also see Neumann article for more information about Fred's life in Canada.

    William told his son-in-law Charles Forsen that they were a part of land drive into Okla., but no more land available, so moved on to Texas; they spent one winter there, then came back north in the spring. He said he left home for good at age 16, or about 1890. His obituary says he came to Iowa in 1909, lived first in Waverly, moved to Tipton, and then to Iowa City in 1921 so that his son Emmeran, a polio victim, could receive care and treatment at Iowa University Hospital there.
