    Notes 
    • The Shaldas left Ondrejov, Bohemia October 25, 1854 on the German sailboat Grossherzogin Von Oldenburg with the families of Wilhelm, Svoboda, Kratchovil, Knizek, Kufka, Pahoral, Kyselka, and Lada to name a few. It was believed the Shaldas were all born in Ondrejov, Bohemia. From Ondrejov the Shalda party of 120 people traveled overland through Prague, Bremen and finally arriving at the little seaport town of Prag, with Bremer Haven a few miles to the north. Fifty-two days after bording the Grossherzogin (October 27) they sailed into New York Harbor - December 18, 1854.

      The Grossherzogin was built at Elsfleth on the Weser River by Johann Ahlers. Elsfleth lies between Bremer and Bremer Haven. It's overall length was 88-1/2 feet. It was 24-1/2 feet wide and 11 feet deep. It was registered as 195 tons.
      !from the research of Erma Bussey

      "Joseph Shalda", of Leelanlau County, Michigan, received a land patent for 80 acres for the N1/2 of the NW1/4, Sec. 15, (later Cleveland Township) dated 1 January 1859 (Cert. No. 787). He received another patent for an adjacent 120 acres dated 25 January 1871. This was for the N1/2 of the SW1/4 of Sec. 15. and the SW1/4 of the NW1/4, Sec. 15 (Homestead Certificate No.98).

      North Unity was entirely destroyed by a fire in 1871. All the buildings were burned down and the families were forced to flee. The Shalda's moved to what is now (1903) known as Shalda's Corners on M-22. Joseph built his log cabin on what is the location of the former Port Oneida Grange building.
