Schowalter Family Book

The Schowalter Book contains much of the descendancy of Johannes Schowalter (1760-1840) and Barbara Neff (1761-1838). Several of Johannes Schowalter's descendants immigrated from Germany to Lee County, Iowa, then their descendants to parts all over the world. In 1963 this book was published as a reference for family use.

This book contains descendants of:

Jacob Schowalter (1788-1853) m. Elizabeth Kaegy (1782-1845)>
Barbara Schowalter (1799-1869) m. Johannes Stauffer (?-1867)
Johannes Schowalter II (1789-1838) m. Magdalene Hirchstein (1792-1879)

There are a total of five files, navigating between them can require some patience. Returning to the first section of the book will always require that you enter the password.
