    Notes 
    • WILLIAM ABEL, one of Outagamie county's industrious agriculturists, who is engaged in cultivating a fine farm of 120 acres in section 14, Cicero township, was born in Pomerania, Germany, October 16, 1849, a son of Christian and Wilhelmina Abel, natives of that country. Christian Abel was born in April, 1817, and died March 6, 1904, and his wife, born in April, 1820, died June 10, 1902. They were the parents of five children, namely: Fredericka, August, William, Wilhelmina and Anstina, and of these, August was the first to come to America, the rest of the family following him here during the following year, 1873. The Abels located first at Winchester, Winnebago county, where William Abel spent a few weeks working for the farmers, and he then came to Cicero township, Outagamie county and settled on eighty acres of wild land, building a log house 20x25 feet, and a log stable 20x28 feet. Later he added forty acres more of wild land, and both this and the original purchase have been cleared and cultivated and the farm is now one of the most valuable of its size in Cicero township. In 1893 he erected a basement barn, 36x70, in 1902 he erected a handsome nine-room house, and in 1907 a wagon shed and hog barn, 20x44 feet, was built. In addition to carrying on a general line of farming, Mr. Abel raises good fat cattle, and he bears the reputation of being a good, practical agriculturist and a fine judge of livestock. In 1880, Mr. Abel was married to Anna Krueger, who was born in Dodge county, Wisconsin, daughter of Carl and Paulina (Kuanart) Krueger, and the children born to this union were as follows: Robert, Paulina, Herman, William, Emma, Anna, Louisa and Otto. Mr. and Mrs. Krueger had four children: Julius and Morich, all born in Germany; and William and Anna, born in Dodge county, Wisconsin. After the death of Carl Krueger, his widow was married a second time, to a Mr. Bladom, by whom she had two children: Paulina and Robert. William Abel has been a hard, conscientious worker all of his life, and he has been successful because of this hard work. He stands high in the esteem of his fellow townsmen and is a representative and public-spirited citizen.
