Notes
a. Note:   Emanuel Raue and his wife Elizabeth Forster Raue immigrated from Germany with their two children, Henry and Aggie, between Oct 1879 and Sept 1883. (Elizabeth Forster Raue's brother, Joseph Forster immigrated to the US in 1881 according to the 1900 census, and in all probability they immigrated at the same time. Joseph Forster homesteaded in the same section of land as did Emanuel Raue. Joseph Forster was a witness on Raue's Homestead papers in June 1898, this being after Raue's death. At that time Joseph Forster indicated that he was 43 years old and had know Raue for 36 years. They had obviously grew up together in Germany and Raue then married Elizabeth Forster, Joseph Forster's sister.) They settled in South Dakota (SE 1/4 of section 30, Salem Township, Mc Cook County, South Dakota) and had two more children, Joseph Raue born Sept 1883, and Theresa Raue, who died prior to 1900. Elizabeth Forster Raue died in Aug 1887. Emanuel Raue homesteaded the SE 1/4 of section 30, Salem Township, Mc Cook County, South Dakota. He moved on the land on 4-2-1882 and received the final certificate of ownership on 12-2-1887. Emanuel Raue later married Mary Knapp Heumiller Lammus (Lammers), who had two previous husbands. Mary Knapp married Mr. Heumiller and had two children, Joe and Leonard (Leonard was born may 1885 in SD). Mr. Heumiller died and Mary married John Lammus (Lammers). They had one child, Hannah Lammus (Lammers) born Dec 1886 in South Dakota. John Lammus (Lammers) died and Mary married Emanuel Raue. They had one child, Lena Mary Raue born 2-29-1892 (leap year) in South Dakota. Emanuel Raue then died and Mary married Andrew Goss. Andrew and Mary had no children. The 1900 census lists Andrew and Mary Goss farming in Mc Cook County, Emery Township, South Dakota. As of the date of the census, 6-18-1900, they have been married at least 6 years. Mary was the mother of 5 children, 4 of whom are still living. Living with Mary and Andrew Goss are three of those children, Leonard Heumiller, born may 1885, Hannah Lammus, born 12-8-1886, and Lena Raue born 2-29-1892. The following information was obtained from the Homestead papers filed by Emanuel Raue for the southeast � of section 30, township 103 (later changed to Salem Township), McCook County, Dakota Territory (later South Dakota). This land is physically located on the northwest corner of an intersection located 2 miles south and 4 miles west of Salem, South Dakota. Date: 14 March 1882 Title: Homestead Application No. 18347 Summary: Emanuel Raue makes application for the southeast quarter of section 30 in township 103 of Range 55, containing 160 acres. At the date he is the head of a family consisting of a wife and three children, and had declared his intention to become a citizen of the United States. Raue indicates that he took possession of the land on 10 March 1882 and paid a filing fee of $14.00 for the Homestead application. Homestead regulations found on a receipt for a filing fee read: It is required of the homestead settler that he shall reside upon and cultivate the land embraced in his homestead entry for a period of five years from the time of filing the affidavit, being also the date of entry. An abandonment of the land for more than six months works a forfeiture of the claim. Further, within two years from the expiration of the said five years he must file proof of his actual settlement and cultivation, failing to do which, his entry will be canceled. If the settler does not wish to remain five years on his tract, he can, at any time after six months, pay for it with cash or land warrants, upon making proof of settlement and cultivation from date of filing affidavit to the time of payment. Date: 21 November 1887 Title: Proof of publication. Summary: George Neugent declares under oath as publisher of the Pioneer Register, a weekly paper published in Salem South Dakota, that the annexed Proof Notice was published in his newspaper for six consecutive times during October and November 1887. The notice reads: Land office at Mitchell, Dakota, Oct. 8, 1887. Notice is hereby given than the following named settler has filed notice of his intention to make final proof in support of his claim and that said proof will be made before R.R. Crandalt, the clerk of the district court of McCook County at Salem, Dakota, on Monday, Nov. 21, 1887, viz: Emanuel Raue under his homestead entry No. 18347 for the southeast quarter of Section No. 30 in township No. 103 north of Range No. 44 west 5th p.m. (This land is physically located north west of an intersection 2 miles south of Salem, SD and 4 miles west.
