  • Notes 
    • Sophie and her sister Rosa married Civil War veterans. The two men were together during the war and remained friends after the war. The two couples decided to go to South Dakota when the land was opened for settlement. The Dakota Territory was opened for settlement in 1858 and the Homestead Act was passed in 1863. In 1876 they claimed homesteads in South Dakota and started a town, naming it Scotland.

      Family history claims Sophia was born in 1844, but her obituary states1849. Her year of death, 1910, is uncertain.

    These are in the Leitheiser branch. Based on the information in the database, there is only one family to have five daughters reach adulthood -- the Sophia Leitheiser and Frank Eisenmann family. Assuming that is correct, then this is ca 1890s.
