Henry Sheck and Elizabeth Mueller immigrated to the U.S. in 1900 from the Volga region of Russia. They came to Kansas via Mexico where they apparently lived for a short amount of time. Henry's sister Katherine Zimmerman was living with her family in Rush County, Kansas and Henry and Elizabeth joined her there. They raised 10 kids on a variety of rented farms in the region. Their twin sons, Benjamin and Abraham (my grandfather) were born in a dugout sod house near Albert, Kansas in 1910.
