Leon Schiller was the last of 10 children, born May 11, 1868 in St Maurice, Canada. He immigrated to the United States with his parents when he was 7 years old. He was too young to work in the factories so it was decided he should attend school to learn how to read and write the two languages, French and English. His father and mother had settled in Governdale, Connecticut wher they stayed for 10 years. When they had saved the sum of $5,000. they resolved they should come West to Minnesota and buy land where is was known then as it is known now; northwestern Minnesota has the richest soil in the world. Leon, the youngest of the family, was chosen by his parents to inherit the land the farm where they settled.
As I remember my uncle Leon, he was perhaps 5'11" in height, blue eyes, blond hair, eloquent in manners as well as looks. He too had the mark of nobility. Had the art of defining the good of others and would always say something pleasing about his fellow-man. He was not an aggressive man. He could say a lot in very few words. He was also a good sportsman. He and his two brothers, Hector and Fred, organized the first baseball team in Argyle, Minnesota where he was an associate of the better class of people in that small village.
At the age of 33 he married a Canadian girl, Alice Heon in St. Murice, Canada.
