St. Joachim Church faces demoliton
To my Schiller relatives, a great battle to save our ancestral church in St.Joachim,Town of Lakeshore Ontario Canada from demolition by the Diocese of London ( Ontario ). Start history at Honore Schiller and his brother David who owned and cleared said lands for the new church. I have documented the three year battle of saving ( for now ) from demolition, including : newspaper articles, court proceedings ( injunction to stop demo.) ,lettres of support from various government historical groups etc. The local parishonners formed a group called the S.O.S committee ( SAVE OUR SANCTUARIES ) which spearheads all media and protests to date. I would like to fax a cross section of this great activity to you if you are interested ( please e-mail your fax # ).
My name is Jerome Baillargeon, ( 48 yrs ) son of Mr.Marcel and Mrs.Bertha ( Schiller ) Baillargeon. Bertha ( 85 yrs ) is the daughter of Joseph Alfred Schiller, son of Honore Schiller. For instant searches on the web ( GOOGLE ) use any of the above references as title words. WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT, Thank You.

SCHILLER FAMILY TREE.PDF of Dolphis and Josephine Schiller complied by Rosemary Schiller, Argyle , MN, 1985
This list of descendants of Dolphis and Josephine Schiller was compiled for the "Back To Your Roots" get together, held July 4th, 1985, at the PJ Schiller Century Farm. By century farm, I mean 100 years of continuous ownership in the same family.
On July 8th, 1885, Dolphis bought the farm for $2000.00, located on the NE1/4 of Section 1, Bloomer Township and the E1/2 SW1/4 section 31, Tamarac Township, Marshall County, Minnesota.
This was a 240 acre farm complete with buildings, farm animals, farm machinery, and a planted crop. The house of eight rooms was fully furnished. Dolphis sold the farm to son Leon and wife, Alice in 1896. They in turn sold it to their son, Phillip and wife, Stella in 1935. Phillips's son, P.J. and I, Rosemary bought the farm in 1967 and have farmed continuously with wheat, barley, soybeans, and sugarbeets as our main crops. Electricity was brought to the farm in 1948 and rural water in 1982.
The Original house, on the banks of the Middle River, is still "home" to the Schiller family. It was remodeled in 1941 and has been renovated through the years. A garage, living room, and extra bedrooms have been added to accommodate our eight children.
I would like to dedicate this family tree to my dear father-in-law, Phillip Schiller, Sr., who passed away December 1, 1984; and to say thank you to Cecile Schiller Belland (1899-1983). Without Cecile's previous family tree, I would not have known where to start.
-peace to their memory-
