" Nicholas Jochum was born about 1824 in Prussia and died in Dubuque County, Iowa on April 6, 1891 at 3:00 a.m. from pneumonia. He had been a farmer in Jefferson Township for the thirty-six years hat he had lived in the United States. Nicholas married first about 1844/45 in Prussia, Catherine Hefler, who was born about 1827, Prussia. Before immigrating to the United States they had four sons. They immigrated to the United States in 1854 on the ship named "Far West". The ships passenger list states the following names Nicholas Jochum (30), Catherine Hefler (28), Nicolas (9), Jacob (6), Jean (4), and Mathias (11 months). They arrived in New York on October 23, 1854. The reason for them to immigrate to the United States in 1854 was as a consequence of fear that permeated the country when the Crimean War began, emigration from Germany rose to 215,000 from 65,000 in 1850. After settling in Sherrills Mound, Dubuque County, Iowa, they had six more children.
On October 5, 1868 a marriage license was issued to Nicholas "Jokum", age 44 and Eliza Knabel, age 42, and they had one more child. It is unknown at this time what happened to Elizabeth Steffens."

" The Jochums arrived in New York on Oct. 23, 1854 aboard the ship “Far West” that had sailed from Harve, France. They immediately set out for Iowa and purchased forty acres of land between Balltown and Sherrills Mound. Four sons crossed the sea with them and six more children were born after their arrival. Kate, or Katie as she was known, was the first daughter born to the Jochums. When Katie was around seven years old her mother died possibly while giving birth to her tenth child, although that cannot be stated with certainty. A few years later Katie’s father married Eliza Knabel on Oct 5, 1868 and one more child was added to the family-her three-year-old daughter, Margaret Ann.
