Hello Helmut,

      Here are the descendants of Adolph Schasse:

I hope this is who you are looking for.


Hi Helmut:

Pawnee City has about 1008 residents. It is 1n Pawnee County in southeastern Nebraska and is about 8 miles from the Kansas-Nebraska states line.

On the following URL, you will find the 1910 census for Pawnee County and on page 7 you will find A Schasse and his family, wife Minnie and 6 daughters, so any further research will not follow the Schasse family name, but that of the daughters husbands. Adolph was born 1866 and immigrated in 1883. His wife Minne was Swiss born German. She immigrated 1885.

Churches in Pawnee City include: Christian Church (A), Zion Lutheran Church (B), Faith Baptist Church (C), First Baptist Church (D), United Presbyterian Church (E), United Methodist Church (F). Addresses are on the following URL

I see your name on the Roots Web for Pawnee County, which makes me think you should have some information.

There are 16+ cemetaries in Pawnee County.

I found my Anna Potrafke-Pieper on the 1900 census is enumerated as servent to a Henry West family in DeCatur, Illinois. She later married H. F. Pieper. H.F. Pieper was listed as "Uncle" to Edmund H.C. Sahs and paid his passage to the U.S.

Edmund H.C. Sahs was my grandfather.

My theory is that Anna Potrafke-Pieper was the sister of Henriette Potrafke-Sahs my GGM. Henriette Potrafke-Sahs was the mother of Edmund Carl Heinrich Sahs.

My mother told me that my grandfather had cousins in Wood River, Monroe, Illinois. Portraits and Biograpical Record of Randoph, Perry, Jackson and Monroe Counties, Illinois published 1894 by Chicago Biographical Publishing Company.

In the text is a bio of an H.C. Sasse, son of Adoph**....

Interestingly, there is chauncery file of a property dispute between a Fred Pieper*, Benjamen West* and Gottlieb Nunnenkamp, Madison County Illinois circa 1860.
