  • Note: History of Outagamie County by Thomas Ryan Career 1911 Kaukauna, Outagamie County, Wisconsin
    John Jansen, the venerable president of the above company, who is now retired from much active participation, was born in the province of North Brabant, Netherlands, in 1835, and was fourteen years of age when he accompanied his parents from Holland to America. He was reared in the family of Capt. James Boyd, in Brown county, and learned to work hard and at heavy tasks in the woods and in saw mills. In 1868 he started to operate a saw mill for John Stovekin, later bought an interest in it and still later the whole mill and retained it entire until 1880, when he sold a one-half interest. Mr. Jansen has been thrice married, his present wife, prior to marriage, having been Frances Rademacher who was born in Buchanan township, Outagamie county. Henry, a son of his first marriage, lives at Marinette. John M., residing at Kaukauna, has a wife and two children. Mary is the wife of Edward Guessenhainer, and they live at Neuminster, Holstein, Germany. Clara is the wife of Frank B. Fargo and they live at Vancouver, Canada. Joseph J. is a resident of Kaukauna. Theresa is deceased. Sarah is the wife of Eugene Taylor, residing at Appleton. Frances married Theodore Ellsworth and they live in this city. Mr. Jansen and family are members of the Holy Cross Catholic Church. Joseph and John J. are members of the Knights of Columbus and Joseph is also identified with the Foresters, the Elks, the Mystic Workers and the Royal Arcanum. He is serving in his third term as alderman from the Second ward and has been a member of the water commission. In earlier days Mr. Jansen also served as an alderman from the Second ward.
  • Note: JOHN JANSEN. The true standard by which to judge a community is the character of its prominent citizens. Progress is rarely, if ever. the result of chance, but always the execution of well-laid plans based on a thorough comprehension of the laws of business. It is only by keeping in view the lives of men who are ever associated in the busy marts of commerce that we can judge of the importance of development, and the possibilities of progress. Thus it is that from the commercial, more than
    the literary or political, side the most valuable lessons of life are to be extracted. In this connection. as a gentleman whose business qualifications are of the best, a brief biographical sketch is given of John Jansen, an honored pioneer business man of Kaukauna.
    Mr. Jansen is a native of Holland, born in January, 1835, in the village of Beugen, North Brabant, son of Herbert and Henrietta Jansen, of the same nativity, who in 1848 came with their family of children to the United States, riaking a settlement at Shantytown, Green Bay, Wis., where the father followed his life vocation, that of farming, till death removed him some eighteen months after his arrival in the county, his wife surviving him only three weeks. They were the parents of children as follows: Delia, who died in Green Bay, Wis. ; Gertrude, who married George Martins, of Brown county, and (bed in 08,o at Shattytown; John, the subject of this sketch; Martin, residing in Green Bay; and Delia, wife
    of Fred Schiller, of Cedar Creek, Wisconsin.
    John Jansen, whose name opens this sketch, received his education in his native land, and was about fourteen years old when he came to Wisconsin. His first labor in the New World was working on the farm With a Mr. Boyd, with whom he remained until he was eighteen, when he went to Ohio, and for two years drove a team. Returning to Wisconsin, he spent one year in Manitowoc, and, after other changes, moved to Pensaukee,
    Oconto County, where he found employment in L. B. Gardtiter's lumber business for six years. In 1867 he came to Kaukauna, following year, in company with John Stovekin, built a sawmill, and in January, 1869, commenced the general manufacture of lumber, running the sawmill until 1879 when the partnership was dissolved. In 188o Mr. Jansen associated
    with Hewett Bros. under the firm style of Hewett Bros. & Jansen until 1882, in which year a sash, door and blind factory was erected in Kaukauna, which was conducted till 1884, when the concern was incorporated as the Kaukauna Lumber & Mfg. Co., and the firm name so continues,
    allthough in Aug1st, i892. our subject bought out his partners, discontinued the manufacture of sash, doors and blinds, and has since operated a planing-mill and saw mill in place thereof which give employment the year round to eight or ten hands.
    In 1870 Mr. Jansen was married, in Brown county, Wis., to Miss Frances Rademacher, who was born in the county, daughter of Peter and Theressa (Bartel) Radermacher, natives of Prussia, who in an early day emigrated to the United Sta5tes, settling in Green Bay, Wis., where the father, who was a mason and also a shoemaker, followed his trades some years, until taking up a farm in the same county. Retiring from active labor, he moved into the village of Combined Locks, Outagamie county, and died in 1891 in the town of Kaukauna, where his widow now resides. To Mr. and Mrs. Jansen have been born seven children, to wit: John, bookkeeper for his father; Mary, assisting in her father's office; Clara, Joe, Therssa, Sarah and Fannie, all still under the parental roof. In politics Mr. Jansen is a stanch Democrat, a "wheel-horse" of the party, and he was serving as alderman of North Kaukauna at the time the two cities merged into one, in 1885. He and his wife are members of the Catholic Church, and are held in the highest esteem by all who know them. Mr. Jansen has been in business longer than any one else in Kaukauna, has always lived on the North Side, and has seen and materially aided in the phenomenal grown of the place.
