    The Schumacher Family tree split in about 1830 some leaving Germany,
 for the Black Sea region ( Odessa, Russia ) now the Ukraine. Russia promised land, no taxes and no military
 for their children. This sounded good to Joseph Schumacher born 12 March 1811 and his brother
 Thomas both sons of (Mathias Schumacher and Maria Elisabeth Hirsch) due to the region was in economic
 turmoil after Napoleon waging war in the region. 
 As the Russian government promises fell with passing years, and the Germans were not welcomed in the
 foreign land it become apparent to most they must leave.
 In 1885 the Schumacher family split apart again some staying in Russia with some of their descendants later
 returning to Germany,  research is ongoing what happen to those who did not make the journey to America.

  Franz Schumacher
  looking for a new frontier in America uprooted his family and headed by ship "SS Werra" from Bremen Germany.
  North Dakota was giving land away to those who would settle the land and homestead,
  Franz Schumacher was one of the first that pioneered the harsh environment and received his land grant
  in Zeeland North Dakota.
