Almost all the Bohalls in Indiana are descendants of or closely related to the basketmakers.

According to Hohenburger, the Bohalls made baskets for a WORLDWIDE trade, not just Indiana.

The big money was in baskets made in animal shapes - after the primary Indian totems, e.g. frog, wolf, owl, eagle, badger, bear, etc.

These were shipped to Europe and sold by Gypsy and Jewish peddlers.

The Great Depression, the coming of plastic, and the depredations of the Nazis wiped out the business.
