56 Charles Van Price
As written by Marge Thielke

Charles Van Price was born in the early 1800s. Tragedy struck however, because he, my great grandfather, decided to see Holland again. He sold his land earlier, and was now one of the wealthiest men in that part of the state. One day he went to the grocery store and never came back! His daughter found he had withdrawn all his savings (a very sizeable amount) and left for Europe. They traced him to Antwerp, Belgium --- then all trace was gone. He was never heard from again. This is why his son Peter, my grandfather, went to work for Joseph DeBroux, my grandfather on my father's side.

Came to U.S. in 1874, and went to Dousman, Wisconsin. He worked for Mr. Dousman, later moved to Little Chute, Wisconsin, then to Phlox, Wisconsin in 1887. While staying with his daughter, Effie, in Waukesha, Wisconsin in 1922, he went grocery shopping for her and was not seen again. After investigating, it was assumed that he returned to Holland from Milwaukee.

68 Description:
This database indexes over 985,000 births recorded in the state of Wisconsin prior to 1907. Wisconsin is one of few states to have a wide-spread index of records prior to establishment of a state vital records office. However, it is important to note that there will be some records at the county level not included in this statewide index. Taken from the index created by the Wisconsin Department of Health and Family Services, Vital Records Division this database will prove useful to those seeking ancestors in early Wisconsin.

Extended Description:

The state of Wisconsin microfiche from which this electronic database was created incorrectly indexed the counties that start with "s". has digitally changed the indexing of the counties that start with the letter "s". If a county is listed as St. Croix, Sauk, Sawyer, Shawano, or Sheboygan the name of the county in which the birth took place should now be correct.

73 Emigrated to USA via Detroit in April 1885

As far as I have been able to determine, my family's branch of the Corrigan clan immigrated to Wisconsin from Canada, arriving near Eau Claire in the 1880's. Six of the seven Corrigan brothers of Orilli, Ontario, better themselves in the newly-opening logging operations of the mid-western United States. Hugh settled in the Eau Claire area, Pat and Tom in northern Wisconsin, and Henry, Jim, and Mike went to the far west in Washington state after several years in northern Wisconsin. Oral tradition in the family has it that only "Curly" Bill remained at home in Orilli. Of the five sisters, at least two left home for the United States; Rose settled in Detroit, Michigan, and Maggie to go to Washington and Alaska. All of the Corrigan boys worked in the woods and mills, married, raised families, and settled permanently in the areas of their choice.

My father, Patrick, married Johannah Hoffmeister in Chippewa County in 1888 and their first child, Ida, was born in June, 1889. They came north to Drummond in Bayfield County after their second daughter, Ann, was born in November, 1891. The young family soon moved to Mineral Lake in Ashland County where Pat began working for the newly re-organized Mineral Lake Lumber Company as a lumber piler. In April, 1894, their first son, William, was born. At this time. Hannah also had her three sisters join her in the north country. Pat continued his work at the mill in the growing little community. The Corrigan family grew also with the birth of George (the author) in 1896 and that of a third daughter, Frances, three years later.

75 Ephraim and Marie immigrated along with their children Olivine, Joseph, Henry and Mary from St. François-du-Lac, Canada to the United States via the Great Lakes and Fox River locating in Little Chute. Marie also brought her father, Antoine with them. The year was the fall of 1836 or 1837 as the records conflict but 1837 is most likely the date as son Joseph Henry was born in Canada in 1837.

In the record of Ephraim St. Louis he states:

"I landed at Green Bay October 26, A.D. 1836. From reports and information there, I concluded at once to move further up on the Fox River. I bought a canoe, trusted all my property, family and all, in one cargo. With so much freight, the river was then very difficult to ascend and in about four days I landed at the place where I have since lived, then call Petit Chute."

According to stories handed down to present day descendants, 10 families, mostly related and including the St. Louis family, paddled their families and belongings from Sorrel, Canada, down the St. Lawrence and across the lakes to Green Bay.

79 Francois-Xavier was found as the first child of Pierre and Marie in the LDS records by Jacques Charbonnier, but was never listed by anyone else, and there is no further sign of him. On the other hand, William (Guillaume) was listed by Robert Leishman as a child of Pierre and Marie, and Jennie Monahan in her letter to my father on 29 July 1948 commented a couple of times about "William" coming to America in 1832 with her mother, Emily Frances. Jacques Charbonnier found nothing about him in the LDS records. There is no other sign or mention of him. Could Francois-Xavier and Guillaume be the same person? It would be nothing new in French and French-Canadian genealogy for a person to undergo a name change in the course of his or her life. In fact, my own mother was baptized as Bernadette Joanna (Latin entry) but was known throughout her life as Jeannette Bernadette. In any event, we still know nothing more about William or Francois-Xavier in America.: Robert L. Quinnett QUINET, Guillaume (I1443)
80 Frank & Margaret Wedding

Agnes, Margaret, Margaret (Ma), Frank, Matie Moll, and Alice. 
Family F80
81 Frank Zalewski, Sr., his wife Anna, and their two oldest children - Martha and Angeline, emigrated to the US from the Baltic port of Danzig and arrived in Baltimore, Maryland, in 1890. The couple's third child, Mary, was born in Baltimore in March 1891. The family then traveled west to Nebraska and east, from there, to the Polish community in Chicago. By May, 1892, the family had settled in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

(Research):According to an interview conducted in April 1980 with Frank Gierszewski, Jr, a grandson of Frank and Anna Zalewski. He indicated his grandparents left Poland from the Baltic port of Danzig and entered the United States through the port of Baltimore, Maryland. There is some confusion, however, as to the area of Poland in which Frank and Anna Zalewski resided prior to their emigration to the United States in 1890. During a telephone interview with their granddaughter, Caroline (Walczak) Sullivan, conducted in January 1995, she indicated that Frank and Anna lived somewhere in the province of Poznan -- an area of Poland then under German jurisdiction and known as South Prussia. his would correspond with information supplied on the death certificate and in the newspaper obituary of Frank Zalewski, Sr in 1941. Although neither source mentions Poznan as his place of birth, both list Germany as his country of origin. (Much of western Poland, including Poznan Province, became German territory after the three partitions of Poland at the end of the eighteenth century.)

There is, however, a conflicting story as to the area of Poland from which Frank and Anna originated. During a 1993 telephone interview with another granddaughter, Irene (Zalewski) Lutzenberger, she indicated that her late father had always said his parents came from eastern Poland -- an area then under Russian rule. Irene's father also stated that when his parents entered the United States, their surname was spelled "Salefsky," thereby reflecting the Russian influence. Although no official documents can be found to verify this, it is interesting to note that in the 1934 obituary of another grandchild, Norbert Cybela, the maiden name of Norbert's mother is spelled "Zalesky."

It is hypothetically possible that Frank Zalewski, Sr is, indeed, born and raised in Russian Poland and, at some later point in his life, moved to the German section in which Poznan Province was located. Although traveling across political borders was difficult in 19th-century Europe, to say the least, it was not impossible. In Russian Poland, for example, all debts to the government, including military service in the czar's army, had to be fulfilled before travel documents would be issued and borders would be crossed. Two years of active military service followed by two years in the reserve forces was required of all males when they reached their twentieth birthday. In Frank's case, that would have accounted for the years 1878 through 1882. We know he married Anna Lindner (a German) in January 1885, which means he probably relocated from Russian-held, eastern Poland to the German-held, western area sometime between 1882 and 1884. This, of course, is only speculation but would explain the Russian "sky" ending on the surname.

"Des Anges was a school teacher in her native Canada before her marriage and, since she could speak only French, she took over the education of all her 12 children in French. She bakes in a large outdoor oven, in which a roaring fire was made and then sealed after the loaves of dough were popped in by means of a long, handled shovel."

95 From the Racine Journal-Times; Monday, March 3, 1969: Family Keeps Cookie 120 Years -- Cookies usually disappear in days or less if youngsters are around, but A. LeRoy Johnson has one that's 120 years old. A Dayton, Ohio, woman baked three sweet cakes for crippled Johnnie Wey in 1849 but the 8 year old boy died before eating the cookies. The boy's mother gave each of his three sisters a cookie to keep in memory of the boy and Johnson has his today after it was passed down to him through the generations. Johnson says that to his knowledge, his cookie is the only one of the three that is left. Johnson is the grandson of one of the three sisters, Margaret Wey, who carried it on a trip by covered wagon from Ohio to what she later called "the wilds of Crawford County, Wis." She still had the cookie when she died at Lodi, Wis, in 1919, passing the cookie on to her daughter, Mrs. Alfred Johnson. Johnson acquired the cookie upon his mother's death in 1955 and says he will pass it on to a member of the family to carry on the tradition.
