From: The Klein Family History, written by Dorothy Klein Luers, 1980:
Chapter I - PAULY FAMILY SETTLES IN Chanhassen, Carver County, MN
Tracking immigration of our Luxembourg forefathers to the U.S.A. brings the
conclusion that the earliest pioneers settled near the largest rivers. The Mississippi and the Minnesota Rivers are the largest in Minnesota and St. Paul, near the conflux of these, was the area's first and most prominent settlement. The areas to the south and west which included Shakopee, New Prague, etc., were the next to be developed. This area was heavily populated with Indians, who lived along the rivers for food and travel. They did not build roads but wore paths from one camp to another and on into the vast wilderness to hunt. These paths or trails were used by later immigrants to work their way beyond the first settlements and on into the unsettled wilds. And so it was that the Paulys found their place in America. In the early 1850's, Luxembourgers Nicolas Pauly, married French Margaret Pedit. In 1854, Nic and Margaret, along with his brothers, John and Henry, sailed to America. On landing in New York City, they headed west, with St. Paul, Minnesota, as their destination. A crowded, busy, urban city atmosphere was not in their dreams, soon foot, they worked their way out of the area and found themselves on the Indian Trail, to Shakopee. The young city on the river enticed them. Nic was a great hunter and wanted the wild unsettled county. While camping at Shakopee, they asked questions and were told that the trail turned north, away from the river and on to the lake country. This was the Shakopee Indians' trail to their big hunting and fishing grounds. Morning could not come soon enough for the men to start the walk northward. After about four miles the trail through the deep woods ended on the shore of a nice sized lake. Nic found what he was looking for. The journey was over! Thus started the Pauly farm on the south shore of Lake Susan in Carver County. Days later, John and Henry pushed on along a trail that followed the lake to the north to find their own pieces of America. Henry decided on the land just south of what would later be the village of Chanhassen, or still later, known as the Sinnen place. John took the adjoining land to the east, known in the 1960's, as the Harold Kerber farm. After a year of hard work grubbing out trees, the two brothers threw in the axe and moved to Minneapolis, where someone had already done the hard work and removed the trees. The Indian trail continued on to Clear Springs, which was the first settlement in this northern district. The Cordells and Mergens were the responsible pioneers. From here the trail led on to Minnetonka Mills, where a flour mill situated on Minnehaha Creek, was big business. This creek ran from St. Paul, in a northwesterly direction and was a natural trail for many people who came that route to settle in the Carver County area. Going farther west the creek led to Lake Minnetonka. As towns grew and travel between them became heavier, better roads were built. The same as today, the people fussed at all the money going into the highways. It took a hundred horses for a road construction job. Imagine the oats needed to feed these beasts! And the cost of all the acres of land purchases to be used to make wide roads. Great groaning were heard at all the money put into machines .... probably as much as $150.00 for a scraper or dirt wagon. I hope the reader recognized and appreciates good old Highway #101

OBITUARY, 5/16/1901, WEEKLY VALLEY HERALD:
DEATH OF NICOLAS PAULY, AN OLD PIONEER OF Chanhassen, Carver County, MN
At his home in Chanhassen, Carver County, MN, Sunday afternoon, May 5, 1901, of
uraemia, Nicolas Pauly, aged 85 years.
His earthly work well done, his head crowned with the whiteness of a ripe old age, his
family grown to man and womanhood, the beneficiaries of his providence and
guidance, his mind at rest from the things of this world and fixed upon those of the
world to come, death must have been a not unwelcome guest to this aged pioneer,
coming as it did to relieve him from a long period of impaired health.
Mr. Pauly was a native of Luxemburg and came to America and to Chanhassen as
early as 1855. He pre-empted a claim which his industry developed into a fine farm,
and there he lived until the time of his death. He leaves a wife and four children,
Nick and Henry, who are farming in Chanhassen; Agnes, now Mrs. Emil Klein of
Chanhassen, and Mary now Mrs. August Druke of Minneapolis. John Pauly, until
recently a resident of this city, is a brother, and there are two sisters still living in
Illinois.
The funeral was held Tuesday morning from the Chanhassen Catholic Church, and
the attendance of neighbors was very large. Shakopee Tribune.
St. Hubert's Catholic Cemetery, Chanhassen, MN:
Nikolaus Pauly 29 September 1816 - 5 May 1901
