Martin Schechinger, son of Martin and Katherine Schechinger, was born in Bavaria,Germany, March 24, 1856. Martin Schechinger Sr. started in with a small farm of 12 acres at the time of his marriage in Germany and increased this until he owned 44 acres. He and his wife had a large family of children and decided to sell their farm in Germany and come to America, where they felt they could give their children better opportunities for advancement. Martin Schechinger Sr. and his family came to America in 1875, located in Westphalia Township, Shelby county, Iowa, where they bought land for eleven dollars an acre. Mr. Schechinger had four stout sons and with their assistance, he soon accumulated 400 acres of land, which he divided among his sons a few years before his death. Martin Schechinger Sr. and wife were the parents of 11 children: Katherine, wife of Joseph Fromm; Crazens, wife of Bartell Stoll; Martin, the subject of this sketch; Mary, wife of Valentine Flintner; Frances, wife of Peter Kauffman; Theresa, wife of Benjamin Blum; George, who married Elizabeth Blum; Caroline, wife of Michael Schiltz; Anastasia,deceased, who was the wife of Jacob Cooker; Bitus, who married Barbara Hennis; and Joseph. Martin Schechinger Jr. came to America before his parents arrived on these shores.

He was 17 years of age when he landed at New York harbor in 1873. He at once located in LaSalle County, Illinois. After working as a laborer there for three years he came to Shelby County, Iowa, and worked with his father until he was 29 years of age, when he married and bought a farm of 120 acres, on which he began farming for himself. Year after year has found him more prosperous and his farm of 400 acres in Lincoln township in this county is a glowing tribute to his successful career as an agriculturist. He also owns 320 acres in the state of Oklahoma, to which he gives his own careful supervision. He has on an average of 140 acres of corn each year which produces about 7, 500 bushels of corn. He also has at least 100 acres of other produce most of which he feeds to his livestock. Mr. Schechinger was married August 20, 1884, to Anna Buch, daughter of Peter and Mary (Luecke) Buch, and to this union 8 children have been born: Kate, Francis, Martin, Nicholas, Valentine, Anna, Clara, and Anton. Kate is the wife of Charles Peter Rading, and has tree children, Anthony, Anna and Clara. Frances is the wife of Joseph Muell, while all of the other children are still single and living with their parents. Mrs. Schechinger's father was born in Germany in 1834 and her mother in 1839 in the same country. Immediately after their marriage, Peter Paul and Mary Buch came to America and located in Keokuk County, Iowa, settling there in 1855. Mr. Buch was an olive oil manufacturer in his native land, but upon coming to America, engaged in farming. He came to Shelby County, Iowa, in 1883 and purchased 160 acres of land in Lincoln township on which he lived until 1911 when he retired from active farm life and moved to Carroll, Iowa, where he is now living. Peter Buch and wife were the parents of ten children:

Michael, Mrs. Anna Schechinger, Henry, Nicholas, John, Mrs. Mary Schuetz, Mrs. Rosa Hammond, Barbara, Nicholas and one who lives in Carroll County, Iowa. Mr.Schechinger and his family are loyal member of the Catholic church. He is a member of the Roman Catholic Mutual Protective Society.

Although it shows in the Schechinger book and my documentation, I don't think the George Schechinger children

died of Diptheria. I believe you'll find them listed in the Westphalia cemetery book and they could have died of

almost anything children died of in those days. I, and many of my cousins, long believed they died of Diptheria.

did died of Diptheria in 1887, between March 27 and April 4.
