In about 1892 Larnbertus Julles Halsema was scouting around Florida for a place to live while his wife was in Ohio. He was informed of a Catholic Community in San Antonio, FL about 50 miles south of Bushnell, FL. Life in Bushnell had not been good for the family. San Antonio had a Catholic Church, Convent, Parochial school, St. Leo College for boys and Holy Name Academy for girls. Lambertus and his wife Marie Agnes Duwel lived there 24 years until 1916 when Lambertus died.
