Oral History:

According to my grandmother, Pauline (Krick) Rohan, her grandfather, Adam Neis, left Germany with his two brothers to avoid the latest draft. Both of their parents were dead and their half brother could not support them much longer. They traveled across France and had to hide from the French police as they stowed away on a ship bound for the US. The brothers first settled in New Jersey where we lose track of Peter, the eldest full brother. Adam and Joseph moved to Stacyville, Mitchell Co., Iowa where they both met their prospective wives. Joseph spent the remainder of his wife in Stacyville. When Adam left, they did not keep contact, at least that I know of. Adam left Stacyville with his pregnant wife to settle in Spalding, Greely Co., Nebraska. They walked the distance through unbroken prairie and became one of the first settlers in the area
