Notes

Ludwig and Anna lived in the Marathon City, WI area when they were 1st married. In the mid 1920s, Ludwig owned and operated a blacksmith shop in Fremont, WI. When Anna received a small inheritance, they bought an 80 acre farm in the Town of
Holway, Taylor County, 10 miles north of Owen, WI where the family grew up. Ludwig did not care for farming, so most of that task was done by Anna and children.
Ludwig was a mason and carpenter, and built the house and barn on the farm. During the winter, Ludwig worked in the woods to make money for taxes and if he took the team of horses, he got a little better pay. He would get home for a visit about
3 times a winter, one being Christmas.
Ludwig played accordion and enjoyed entertaining his friends; most of his children were also musically talented.
According to son Arthur, Ludwig understood some English, but spoke only German.

Ludwig and Anna had five sons serving in the military. They were Julia, Henry, Leander, Alfred and David.

Franziska Heil Letters
-----------------------------

These letters were provided by Barbara Kessler, great granddaughter of Franziska Heil Seliger who states:

"The following letters were written in German by my great grandmother who came to America in 1881 to live with relatives in Marathon, WI. Her sister, Rose, in Mittelkalback, Germany, saved the letters. In 1982, Rose's granddaughter found the
letters, translated them into English and sent out copies to Franziska's granddaughter in Wausau, WI who sent a copy of the translation to me."

Franziska Heil (1861-1948) wrote the following letter shortly before her marriage to Herman Anton Seliger on August 30, 1882.:

Dearest Father and brothers and sisters! Praised by Jesus Christ!

I take th epen to write you, dear father and brothers and sisters, because we had no time, otherwise I would have written long ago, and help carry the cross of our brother. He wrote to me twice and I have answered him to come to me, but someone
told him that in St. Louis, it was better. And it is the worst, say my father-in-law and my husband, because they have been there for twenty-four years and they know it. He is still not here and it is going to take a long while until he comes to us.
And Klemens, why doesn't he want to come to the United States? He does not have to worry, when someone is here like Friedolin and Klemens, they can work and buy a piece of land in a short (sic). They are still young and don't have to work so hard.
We sleep during the biggest work period until six or six-thirty in the morning and in the evenings we go to bed at eight or eight-thirty. It is not like Mittelkalbach where one has to be up at two a.m. in the morning and finally goes to bed at eleven
in the evening. So, dear brother, in America it is quite different than in Germany.

Dearest Father, the cows are just like the ones at home, the harvest is now over. We have threshed 142 bushels of wheat, 475 bushels of oats, 52 bushels of peas. The bushel is as much as 1 1/2 maas (a German measure). We harvested the grain
with a cradle, that is something similar to your Habergestell (a smaller cradle used for harvesting oats in Germany), and with that we harvested rye, wheat, oats, everything. The days are the same here as with you, when we have spring, you have it
too. It is the same with the other seasons. The days are long in the summer and short in the winter. When you have evening, we have midday, there is a difference of seven hours which we are later than you. So I wish you a happy harvest and much
health and I wish I could press you to my heart again. I think of you every day and hope that my father is still healthy. My husband always says I wish I knew my father-in-law and if you want to, please have a picture taken and send it to us, because
my husband would like to see you, and my heart desires to be with you. I will end this letter and remain with my best greeting.

Your loving daughter and sister,

Franziska Heil

October 15, 1882

Dear Father,

I am married since August 30th and wanted to write to you every day. One time there is no paper; one time there is no time. Therefore, please don't be angry with me. My wedding dress cost 56 Mark or 14 dollar and my wedding wreath 7 Mark or one
dollar and seventy-five cents. My bride's ring also 7 Marks and a white veil was 2 Mark or 1/2 dollar. I have more than 250 Mark worth of clothing already. I will close my letter. My husband, father-in-law, brother-in-law, sister-in-law all greet
you.

I remain your daughter,

Franziska Seliger.

From a letter written in 1937

Dear Sister,

.....I have raised ten children and now I am living with my daughter, there I have it good. It has been thirteen years since my husband went into eternity. How long will be be before we have to go the same way?.....
