My father came upon the two when they were living In their dugout at Dakota City in 1884. They came up the next year and Zahlten located north of Algona and Hackman to th« south. Zahiten married into the Rlebhoff family, white Rackman married into the Lev! Maxwell family which c&Umed to be the first white family in Kossuth county.

On Sunday evening the young people of the Methodist church met to When la need of Hue* have your eye* thoroughly DR. F. E. SAWYER, Opt "August Zahlten left Germany in the night time and as he himself said, "There came a knock at the door—we were warned—we hurried away with the night and came to America."America, the asylum for political and religious refugees I "After landing in America, Zahlten made his way to Cincinnati. On arriving there he found a number of his countrymen organizing a colony to go to Kansas. Many of those men were revolutionists of 1848, and, as such, made first class abolitionists. Kansas at that time wag wen on its way towards the "bleeding" period. The slavery question was being agitated. And those former revolutionists conceived the idea of establishing a colony in Kansas and to make every effort to do their share in wrestling that greatly growing state from slavery. The colonists organized and began preparations for the long Journey «> Kansas. Zahl- ten, not being particularly enamored with the abolition promulgation idea, thought it would be a good plan to set out ahead of his fellow countrymen, reach the locality where they intended to settle, secure as much land as he could and then sell It to them on their arrival, at an advanced figure. This he did, that Is, he started. "Zahlten, In company with Charles Bergk, Christian Hackman and Joseph Mengler, landed at Pella, Iowa. There they found a settlement of sturdy, thrifty Hollanders. Then Hackman and Joseph Mangier, landed at Pella, Iowa. They left Holland on account of a desire for larger religious and civil liberty. The Hollanders were exclusive. When the Q«rman revolutionist* caw the potatoes, the grain, the stock and plenty everywhere they thought it must Indeed be a rich, fertile country and concluded to secure for themselves a home. They sought some of this wealth producing land but the foxy Dutch told them there was none on the market and no government land to be had. "They had now abandoned the idea of going to Kansas because a few days after their arrival at Pella they saw for the first time a "prairie schooner" driven by a man who wore long hair, kept an unshaven face and was of an ill-fed appearance. His tales of hardships, of grasshoppers, of burned up crops and of the desolation of Kansas, caused the would-be speculators to resolve to flnd a home in Iowa. "With a covered wagon and a team of oxen the home-seekers struck for Aognst Zahlten northwestern Iowa. They traveled on day after day over the new born prairie. On the llth day of November, 1854, they arrived at a spot which they considered a suitable place for a camp. This spot proved to be on the east branch of the Des Moines river where Dakota City now stands. The landscape and the surroundings appealed to them and there the party of four, Zahlten, Bergk, Rackman and Mengler resolved to settle. Night came on and with it a terrific storm of snow and wind. The morning awoke them to the necessity of the hour—a shelter. The nearby woods suggested a house of logs. They at once begun work. Their progress was handicapped by not having the proper tools. They had a hammer but no nails, an ax but no cross-cut saw. Being discouraged by the slowness of their progress, they sought a temporary shelter by digging a hole, four feet wide, into the side of the hill. This answered their purpose until their house of logs and earth was completed. Their cabin when finished was 14x18. The front part was of logs. The rear half dug out of the hill. It was thatched with grass known as "blue shine." Having no bricks they built the chimney of sod. The "blue shine" was gotten from the slough as the Indians had burned the grass from the nearby prairie, making feed scarce for their oxen. "To these men. this was Indeed a ne^v world. To their knowledge there was no white man near them. There was big game on every hand but they had not the means to readily secure it. Groups of deer appeared almost daily. And It wa» not a rare occurrenc- for •them to see as many-as a irandred ellr in a single drove, while to look out of the cabin at any time was to see the prowling', howfllng, hungry wolves They lived, for the most part, on corn meal, and what few supplies they got they had to go to Fort Dodge to secure At this time they found one settle: between their cabin and Fort Dodge "One day while Hackman was hunt- Ing he discovered, about one mile from then- cabin, a couple of men building a log house. It proved to be Edwar^ McKnlght and two companions. McKnight and Bergk fraternized, but Zahltsn and Hackman saw very little of McKnlght. It was evident to the German revolutionists that their neighbor was better equipped than they were, because he always had plenty to eat and whiakey to drink."—History of Humboldt County, pp 332-5.
