    Kaukauna Times, February 1, 1967
    Anton “Casey” Jansen, former Little Chute Village President and man about the Valley, was honored with a diamond studded 50-year membership pin by the International Machinists Association at a dinner attended by more than 400 at Van Abel’s. “I joined the machinist in 1917 when I was working at Fred Hoehne’s machine shop in Kaukauna,” he reminisced. Younger men present did not remember the shop which stood along the canal bank on land which is now Thilwerth park.
  • Note: Chute, Outagamie county, and in the various public offices which he has held he has been duly watchful of the interests of his community. He has always lived at Little Chute, where his birth occurred on the 10th of May, 1884. His parents, Anton and Johanna (Pennings) Jansen, were natives of Holland. The father was born in 1826 and died in 1896, and the mother passed away in February, 1900. They came to this country in young manhood and womanhood and were married in Green Bay, Wisconsin. The father was a veteran of the Civil war, in which he served as a blacksmith in the First Regiment Wisconsin Volunteer Cavalry.
    Anton Jansen, Jr., received his education in the parochial and public schools of Little Chute, and was graduated from the latter in June, 1898. He worked in the paper mills for four years and then, in 1902, he began to learn the trade of machinist. He became an expert workman and followed that trade for twenty-seven years, or until 1928, when he turned his attention to the insurance and real estate business, in which he is still engaged. He is also serving as collector for the Kaukauna light and water department for this locality.
    Mr. Jansen has been married three times, first in 1906, in Little Chute, to Miss Mary Verstegen, who was born here, August 15, 1884, and died in 1916, leaving a daughter, Alice C., born September 18, 1907. In 1917, in Kaukauna, Outagamie county, Mr. Jansen married Mrs. Elizabeth Nelson, who was born in Kaukauna, April 6, 1887, and died in 1921, leaving a daughter, Mary Elizabeth, born September 25, 1918. She also had a daughter, Geraldine Nelson, who was adopted by Mr. Jansen after her mother's death. In 1923, at Kimberly, Wisconsin, Mr. Jansen was married to Miss Nellie Lemmers, who was born in that place, November 6, 1890.
    In his political views Mr. Jansen is a supporter of the democratic party on national issues, but in state affairs he is aligned with the progressive republicans and at local elections votes for the men whom he considers best qualified for the offices they seek. In 1909 he was elected a member of the village board of trustees for a two-year term, but after serving six months resigned to accept the appointment to the office of village clerk. He held that office for three years, and in 1916 was again elected to the village board. He also served six years, from 1909 to 1915, as school clerk for district No. 1. During his term as village president, to which he was elected in 1921, a number of substantial and worthwhile improvements were made. In 1924 he installed the water works system and completed seventy-five per cent of the sewer system. He was instrumental in securing the completion of the county trunkend highway system south, and causing the same to be paved. In 1923, after a lengthy controversy with the federal government, the draw bridge across the Fox river was constructed, without cost to the village. The village now has an all-night lighting system, the current being furnished by the Kaukauna Light and Power Company and has a motorized fire equipment purchased in 1926. The village also has an up-to-date baseball park and an attractive municipal park. Mr. Jansen has been re-elected village president each year since 1921, as well as a member of the county board of supervisors.
    Fraternally he is a member of the Benovolent Protective Order of Elks, the Fraternal Order of Eagles, the Catholic Order of foresters and the Modern Woodmen of America. For thirty years he has been closely identified with the village baseball activities and played the game during fifteen years of that time. He is now one of the most popular umpires in the local league and is popularly known as “Casey.” He is intensely loyal to his town and community and loses no opportunity to boost it. He has been a capable and conscientious public official, and no citizen of the community is more worthy of the respect and support of the people than he.

  • Note: SOURCE: APPLETON POST CRESCENT MAY, 28, 1998 BY ALICE LOCY WEYERS
    Henry J. Weyenberg Locy was weeding in his garden on Wilson St. in the Village of Little Chute when once again his eyes focused on the large red brick house and farm across the field on the other side of the tracks. Even though his home on Wilson St. had a small barn garage, two cows and a large garden, the house was too small for his family. As he stood there he began to daydream about his life, and how he came to live in this house.
    He was born September 22, 1904, above his father's saloon, Main St. Little Chute (the building is still standing.) Henry's father, John Weyenberg, died in 1908 at the age of 34 and mother, Mary Van Domelen Weyenberg, died in 1914 at the age of 35. Henry was ten years old and a month after his mother's death, he was adopted by Bert and Louisa Locy, and came to live with them in this home.
    Henry's younger brother, Sylvester, 8 years of age was adopted by Charley and Ann McGregor of Fon Du Lac. His older brothers, George 15, William 14, and older sister Mayme 12, were taken to live with a farm family in Rudolph to work for their keep. Henry was very lonely without his family and cried himself to sleep often. He kept in touch with his brothers and sister all of his life.
    The Locy's had no children and at a young age, Henry did whatever work he could to make money. At the age of 15, he got a job at Thilmany's Mill in Kaukauna, which he walked to and from every day. For many years he worked the night shift. After 47 years, he retired.
    In 1925 Henry married Geraldine Nelson in St. John's Catholic Church in Little Chute. Geraldine was not of age to marry, so her step father, Casey, adopted her and signed the permit.
    Geraldine was born August 31, 1907 in Kaukauna, one month after her father Charles Nelson died. Her mother, Elizabeth Gertz Nelson, later married Anton Casey Jansen of Little Chute. He had a daughter, Alice Christine, who was the same age as Geraldine. Alice is the great granddaughter of Arnold Verstegen, one of the first settlers of the village.
    In 1918, Geraldine's mother and Casey had a daughter and named her Mary Elizabeth. Geraldine's mother died in 1921 and left her with a step father, step sister and a half sister.
    Henry and Geraldine lived in Kaukauna for a while and they operated the saloon across the canal from the Thilmany Mill for a few years. Donald, Dorothy, David and Dolores were born in Kaukauna. Dolores was born in 1929, the beginning of the depression. Henry's check from the mill, at the end of the week, was less than $3.00. Henry moved his family to his stepparents home on Wilson Street in Little Chute. Dewain, John, Alice, James and Gerald were born there.
    In the spring of 1937, Henry convinced the owner of the farm, Honnaka (Anna) Derks, to trade the farm for his home on Wilson Street, plus cash. Henry didn't know much about farming and he had to keep his job in the mill, so he made an agreement with Fred Van Handel to work the farm on halves for a few years. The farm consisted of a barn, machine shed, pump house, horse barn, pig pen, chicken coop, and out house and a work shed, which stood behind the house and was filled with many hand tools, wooden buckets and bottles of every sort. The large two story red brick house was built by John Derks in 1898. There is a date plate at the peak of the house on the Buchanan Street side. Cherry trees lined the yard on the east side, ten large Maples in the front, on the south, and a large driveway on the west. We use this space for playing ball. The house is built in a form of a cross and had two white wrap around porches and a large porch off the kitchen, with six room on the first floor and five rooms on the second floor. Ten foot ceilings and hardwood floors were a big feature of the house. The largest room was the center room, with an outside entrance on the west. This room was our family and dining room. Many thresher meals were served in this dining room. Harvest time was a great time to socialize. The women in the neighborhood cooked and the men helped with the threshing.
    Thomas born in 1938, was the only one of eleven children born in the farm house. The year 1944 was an eventful one for the family. My oldest brother, Don, Joined the Marines in March and was in the invasion of Okinawa, in the fall. My oldest sister, Dorothy married Harold Bissing and had their wedding on the farm. In December of that year, my youngest sister, Mary was born. The only one of eleven children to be born in a hospital.
    My father sold the 80 acre farm to John Diedrick in 1950. He was still in debt, but the farm had served him well.
    Having been orphaned at a young age, he and Geraldine were able to feed, clothe and give their children a Catholic education both grade and high school. They loved children and have 49 grandchildren and 82 great grandchildren. They both died in 1994.
    The farm had an outdoor theater on it for some time, and now is owned by the village of Little Chute were the Municipal Garage is, and the land is being developed for an industrial park. The house has been turned into three apartments.

  • Note: Good Afternoon My name is ADRIANNA JANSSEN. I was born in Oss Holland May 26, 1852
    I came to Little Chute with my Parents Arnold & Joanna Strick when I was 4 yr. old We lived on Wilson St near the railroad. I would have 5 younger brothers & sisters.
    Being from the same town I would meet and begin courtship with Martin Jansen even though there was 12 years difference in age. I turned 17 four days before I Married Martin. We were married at St John Catholic Church in Little Chute by Father Verberk.
    We live on a farm for 7 years before moving into Little Chute when my husband got a job in a mill. Our home was on Buchanan Street.
    We had 20 Children. The 8th child, Henry, would die as a very young infant. The 10th child Johnny would die of diphtheria at age two. The other 18 were healthy and lived to provide much happiness and comfort to me. My children are Georgianna , Theodore, Arnold, Elizabeth, William, George, Peter, Henry, Martin, Johnny, John, Patrenella, Katherine, Henrietta, Mary, Adrianna, Henry, Johanna, Josephine, and Arthur.
    When the crowd was at home we used ½ bushel of potatoes at a meal, 12 to 14 loaves of bread each day and 800 pounds of pork plus 600 pounds of beef a year. I would like to have those meals again because I would have lots of good company and lots of help from the children.
    When the children were at home, my mother spun the yarn for their stockings and mittens, and I would sit up at night until 11:00 o'clock to keep up with my knitting. For their clothing, I bought cloth at the stores and made their clothing myself.
    I never had any trouble with my house work because the children always helped me. With the aid of the boys who stayed at home until they were 21, we never had any trouble supporting the family.
    My husband died of pneumonia on April 13, 1915 at the age of 62. He was laid to rest here. Our youngest child was only 6 yrs. at the time and 10 of the children were under the age of twenty. I was 51 yrs. at the time.
    By the time I was 63 yrs. I had 87 direct descendants including 18 children, the youngest 18 yrs. and the oldest 44 yrs. 62 grandchildren and 7 great grandchildren.
    I am confined to a wheelchair now.
    I can't work like I used to but my children do the house work for me. I would enjoy having the children about me again and to be able to clothe and feed them again.
    I enjoyed the good neighbors. We used to go to dances and parties and always had a good time.
    Although there is a streak of gray here and there in my hair and I am not as active as I once was on account of the almost superhuman work I had to do in raising 20 children, a friend said that is how I retain my youthful sparkle of eye and alertness of mind.
    I died in July of 1930 at the age of 65.
