My grandmother on my mom’s side is a Heller. Passenger list records show that Lorenz, his wife Elizabeth (Fleming), and their children Anna, Andreas and Rosalia arrived at Castle Garden in New York City on May 16, 1866, on the ship Johanna. They were from Sossnow, Prussia. They lived in Neshkoro, Marquette Co., WI in 1870 and by 1880 had moved on to Princeton, Green Lake Co. In 1881, they moved to South Dakota. My direct line stayed in Wisconsin.
My great grandfather, Frank worked on farms at Fox Lake and in the lumber camps at Ashland. After several years, he came to Montello and worked for the Montello Granite Company for about 45 years. His daughter, Florence married Raymond Hau in 1933.
