History of Hennepin County
"Anton Schaar was born in Germany, in 1821. Moved to America in 1848, and settled in Hennepin country ten years later. He bought a farm, built a log house, and cleared two acres the first year; has now cleared it up and built a nice house. His last marriage was to Elizabeth Boetel. They have four children now living."
