This is our last recap of past Cemetery Walks (if we've been accurate in our records). While many of us current citizens think first of the Bohr house that sat by the old junk yard and has been since torn down, there is more history to their story. It took three of them to really tell their story right: Joseph, William (Tinner) and Katherine. The Bohrs arrived in the US in September 1842; they too were encouraged by the letters of Johann Fuchs, Nick Pohl and Johann Lehmann. From a millinery store to building the old church, the Bohrs have a rich history in our town.
You'll find more of their story by clicking on the button below (we apologize for the poor quality of the text).
