An unexpected perk of doing genealogical discovery online and on a blog is that Larry and I find our virtual town expanding--the people we "know" in Pierz and Buckman increases with almost every page of the (newly online) Pierz Journal newspaper. Especially those names we recognize from pictures found in the Morrison County Pictorial Atlases...like this--
Now, sure, these aren't the same Dahmen guy, since the pic was taken 30 years after the article appeared, but wouldn't you guess they were related?
In the 1900 Federal Census, widower Joseph Dahmen, 35, lived in Pierz township with his five children and his widowed mom. By 1911, he was 46 and old enough to know better with horses but young enough to be teased mercilessly about it. I assume Erhart Dahmen was a nephew maybe. If you know, email me, and I'll add the info, ok?
