Jacob Helm, oldest son of Friedrich Helm, and Miss Catharina Jesser, oldest daughter of Friedrich Jesser. John Fiectler and Wm. Jesser acted as best men and Carolina Helm and Magdalena Wolf were bridesmaids. The function at the church was followed by a bountiful wedding feast at the home of the briide's parents, northwest of Java, in which the entire community participated. Mirth and merry making reigned supreme during the entire afternoon and evening and many a poor, forlorn husband for once got a good meal. The young couple is well and favorably known, the groom holding the post of assistant cashier in the First State Bank of Java, and the bride is a lady of taste and refinement. The Harold extends congratulations and wishes the young people success in business and happiness at home.

Mott Pioneer Press 7 Dec. 1987

Funeral services for Louisa Schauer, 85, longtime south Regent homemaker and farmer were held on Saturday, November 28, 1987 at 2:00 p.m. from regent High School Gymnasium. Pastor Dave Lang officiated and interment was made in the Regent Cemetery. A family service was held at 11:00 a.m. at the Assembly of God Church in Mott which she attended. Casketbearers included Clarence Krough, David Anderson, Harvey Pekas, Monte Strand, Curtis Olson, and Gregg Rogers with all friends considered honorary bearers. Special music was provided by Mr. And Mrs. Henry Zimmerman and Chris Zimmerman who sang "My God and I" and "Jeasus Breaks the Morning", and Deb Lang who sang "We Shall Behold Him". The congregation also sang "Amazing Grace". A memorial has been established.

Louisa Dill was born on July 14, 1902 at Grunnidall, South Dakota to Carl and Marie (Zink) Dill. Her father passed away when she was 3 months old and in 1910 she accompanied her mother and step-father, George Zimmerman, to the United States. In 1912 the family homesteaded in Perkins Counts, South Dakota near Bison, and later moved to a farm near Hettinger. She attended a rural school and grew to young womanhood in the Hettinger area. On March 22, 1925 she was united in marriage to Jacob Schauer at his parents farm home south of Havelock, North Dakota. They began farming 13 1/2 miles southwest of Regent and in 1928 purchased a farm 4 miles south of Regent. Thirteen children were born to Jacob and Louisa.

Mr. Schauer passed away on September 4, 1952 and Louisa was left with 9 children at home, limited formal education, a poor farm economy, but kept the family together and the farm operating. Though she was not concerned with civic organizations, she was still a source of respect and admiration to her family and community. She was continually busy with her family, home, garden and spent much time in later years with her plants and fancy work. Louisa was a strong person who expressed her love through strong discipline and taught her family hard work. But above all, she wanted to leave a spiritual legacy to her children and grandchildren. She prayed they would recognize the importance of a spiritual commitment to her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ and each one would make that choice and follow it to the end. The family grew up knowing Louisa as a prayer warrior that prayed for each one of them. She will be missed very much, was an anchor for the family and they are happy with the many special memories they have and for the inspiration she provided. Mrs. Schauer passed away on Wednesday morning, November 25, 1987 at the Hettinger Community Memorial Hospital after being stricken by a stroke on Sunday, November 22.

23. John Karl Schauer #2158 (11.Carolina3, 4.Jacob2, 1.George1) b. 1 Oct 1889, Neudorf, Odessa Co., South Russia, occupation Farmer, m. 12 Feb 1912, in Selby, SD, USA, Christina Wagner #2160, b. 31 Jul 1890, Borodino, Bessarabia, South Russia, (daughter of Johann I Wagner #4931 and Christina Reule #4932) d. 8 Jul 1973, Selby, Walworth Co., ND. John died 7 Nov 1967, Selby, SD, USA.

John Karl Schauer was born at Neudorf, Russia on October 1, 1889, the son of Karl Schauer an his wife Carolina Helm. He left Liverpool, England, on March 13, 1909, on the commercial liner, Laxonia, and arrived at Boston on March 18, 1909. One brother, Jacob Schauer, preceded him to the United States and made homestead entry near Hettinger, North Dakota. This was young John's destination upon arrival in this country. Schauer's parents were very poor but his father had managed to save enough money with which to purchase John's passage to this country and that was about all.

When John arrived at his brother's farm, he had only $2.50 with which he purchased a pair of shoes. Schauer spent his first summer at his brother's farm and then went to Ashley, North Dakota, to live with his uncle, Jacob Schauer. He remained there until the summer of 1910 and then again returned to Hettinger where he farmed with his brother until the winter of 1912.

During this time he made several trips to the Java vicinity to visit his uncles, Fred Helm, Ludwig Helm and Christ Helm. During these visits he became acquainted with Christine Wagner, the daughter of Johan Wagner, another Selby pioneer, and they were married at Selby on February 12, 1912. Mrs. Schauer was born at Borodino, Bessarabia, in South Russia, on July 31, 1890 and came to the United States in 1894 with her parents. The family first lived near Bowdle and later acquired a farm two miles south of Selby.

Mr. and Mrs. Schauer spent the first year of their married life farming near Hettinger, and then sold their holdings and moved to the Selby vicinity and continued farming. They lived on the Gottfried Wagner farm, now occupied by Emil Wagner, for six years and then lived on the Johann Dupper farm for two years, before purchasing their present farm home from Emanuel Baer in 1920. In 1946, the Schauers purchased the two quarter sections formerly owned by Johann Dupper and in 1948 they purchased the old Johan Wagner farm, consisting of two quarter sections, from Adolf Stang. The Schauers now own five quarters of land as one farming unit.

The Schauers have three children; Gerhardt Schauer born in September, 1914, who now lives at Aberdeen, South Dakota, and is prominent in Boy Scout work, and is employed by the Nelson Auto Electric company; Milton Schauer, born in March, 1919, who lives at home and farms with his parents; and Irma Steder, born in January, 1922, who lives with her husband on the old Johann Wagner farm purchased by the Schauers in 1948. The life itinerary of the Schauer family is typical of other families who settled in the Selby vicinity during 1912, or that approximate date. Some years, crops and prices were good and some years crops were good and prices were low. Some years crops were poor and prices were low. Those were the worst years. Schauer recalls 1921, 1933 and 1934 as being the worst years of his farming operations. The years during and immediately after World War ll were the best years.

John Schauer's parents both died in Russia during the early thirties. One brother, Fred Schauer, came to the United States in 1914. He was killed in France during World War l and the American Legion post at Selby is named in his honor. Two sisters also came to the United States but four sisters remained in Russia.

John Schauer and his family are happy in their farm life. They contuine to be active on the farm and enjoy their children and grandchildren. Selby is proud of this typical farm family. Taken from the Jubilee book.
