Frank Joseph Schrier (Srajer)

Frank Joseph SchrierFrank Joseph Srajer was born in Bohemia in 1864, probably served in the Prussian Army, emigrated to the United States in 1884, and married Maria Solil. He lived in various places in Iowa and Kansas, finally, in 1900, purchasing the Schrier family farm near Buckingham, Iowa, which remains in the family to this day.   He also changed the spelling of his name twice, to Schreier and finally Schrier.  According to family lore that’s because he was tired of having people mispronounce it.   A number of Srajer family relatives retained the name and still live in Kansas and elsewhere.

I’ve posted Frank’s story on the people section of the website here, and posted his obituary in the obituary section here.
