Denning, Peter J. Dreiling, John Dinkel, Frank Frooehlich, Henry Froehlich, John Frank, Henry Hoff, Alex Herman, Clemens Rohleder, Nick Rohleder, Andrew Linenberger, David Toepfer, Albert Weigel, Michael Weigel, Peter P. Weigel, Valentin Weigel, Andrew Windholz, Martin Windholz, Adam Windholz, John Windholz. Their petition was received and permission granted and preliminary work was commenced in the early part of spring, 1899. The cornerstone was laid in May the same year. Progress was slow until Rev. Fr. Emmeram Kausler became pastor. He, in the spring of 1901, took charge of the building and on Christmas clay of the same year Holy Mass was said in it the first time. The parish at this time is in a prosperous condition. having sixty families. No parochial school has as yet been opened, although a building for that purpose has been erected for many years. The present pastor is Rev. Fr. Walter Herman, O.M. Cap.
