    Johan; John.

    NOTES: He went by his first name: John.
    In Grand Island, NE he worked as a railroad section hand, an employee in
    sugar factory, and an employee in stock food factory.
    He was also a farmer.

    NOTE: Following is copied from a Family History written by John's wife,
    Margaret. The history is in the possession of Della Hinthorne, Independence, KS.
    I have copy:

    "In 1897 John Luethje and wife went to Grand Island, Nebraska, where his
    mother and sisters still lived. There he worked as a R.R. section hand in Sugar
    Factory in Stock food Factory and the like. Then in summer 1902, he came to
    Walnut Kansas, where her sister and family Claus Stelljes lived. They rented
    farms around Walnut, Brazilton and Hepler, lived there a number of years. They
    had fire and other losses nevertheless they succeeded in farming. With good
    equipment they rented a farm near Tyro, then a half section near Wayside. In
    1919 the family came to Independence. There were 8 children."

    To avoid the German military draft he and his brother, Herman, came to America
    (Sterling, Whiteside, Il) where his sister, Friedericka and her husband, Johann
    BUSSO lived. John's sister, Johanna, accompanied them. John met and married
    Margaretha at Cole Camp, MO, where they lived with her father on his farm for
    two years. They then went to Grand Island, NE (1897) where his mother and
    sisters lived. In summer of 1902 he went to Walnut, KS where Margaretha's
    sister, Gesche, and her husband, Claus STELLJES lived. They rented farms in KS.
    In 1919 they came to Independence, KS. About this time (when he was 56 years
    old) he left home and was not heard from again. One source says he may have
    gone to Oklahoma.

    NOTE: I wonder if he didn't go to Oregon to be with his brother, Herman.

    NOTE: The 1900 Federal Census Record of Grand Island, NE states that he came to
    America in 1882.
