Notes for Nicholas Schaleben
He was given as Nicola Johanni in the 1860 census. He was listed as Nic. S. in the 1865 Minnesota census.

He shares a gravestone with his half-sister:

"Nicolaus Schaleben 1848 - 1866
Elsbeth Johanni half-sister 1861 - 1864"

He was probably named for his maternal grandfather, if the information about parents on his mother's death certificate is correct.
