Naturalizing Schoser

According to the Durango Naturalization Records, Ludwig Schoser was seeking citizenship in the United States between 1904 and 1906. These records typically include information on the precise date of naturalization, the nation of origin and the number of years the person had resided in the United States. Unfortunately, this information is not available online so that one would have to consult the paper archives at the Fort Lewis College Foundation, Center of Southwest Studies in Durango to know what Ludwig's country of origin was and when he emigrated to the U.S..
What we do know about Ludwig from other sources is that he was married to Dora (Schirmer) and had four sons (John, Otto 'Barney', Leo and Frank Joseph) and two daughters (Mary and Emma). In fact, he is the progenitor of a substantial number of Schosers in the U.S. some of whom still live in the area of Durango, Colorado.

Screaming about change, emotion and problems of the world

Joe Schoser of Las Vegas, Nevada was second guitarist in the 'legendary' hardcore punk band Faded Grey which from 1998 to 2002 'woke up a sleepy Vegas underground'. The Las Vegas Weekly describes the band as 'five ebullient guys in their mid-20s, screaming about change, emotion and the problems of the world'. 
Joe joined the original foursome in 2000. In 2001, the band released its only full-length album, the 11-song A Quiet Time of Desperation, on influential hardcore label Indecision Records, then embarked on a 60-day tour across America. Footage from Faded Grey’s second-to-last show is available at youtube.
In April 2009, the Las Vegas Weekly reported what had become of the band members, Joe studying law in Portland, Oregon and planning to enter the field of human-rights law. Even though Faded Grey dissolved in 2002 and had only one reunion show in 2005, the memory of them lives on:
