After 1880, the family migrated to Nebraska where Eveline and John died. Remaining family members came to Oklahoma Territory during the land run. William, Samuel and Frank filed for homestead in Kingfisher in June 1889.

Frank and George married sisters, and these unions produced double-cousins with the Grothe name. Two of Frank's daughters married Goodman brothers, thus producing double-cousins in the Goodman-Grothe family.
