  • Note: Farmed original homestead.The following is an article found in a book entitled The Commemorative Biographical Record. The author is unknown.Frank Heyrman. Among the early pioneer families of PrebleTownship, Brown County, none is better known than the Heyrman family. The first of whom to come to Wisconsin was John Heyrman(grandfather of Frank Heyrman),who about the year 1856, came to the United States from Belgium where he was a well-to-do farmer.John Heyrman was married in his native country and there, three sons were born to him, Charles L., who is mentioned further on;John B., editor of a newspaper in DePere; and Joseph, now deceased, who was a civil engineer in Green Bay. The mother of these died on the ocean while the family was en route for America and was buried at sea. From the port of landing the father and sons came by rail to Chicago, IL, thence by water to Green Bay, WI, where they arrived May 4, 1856. Here they made a short stay while deciding on a place to locate and then made a settlement in Preble Township where Mr. Heyrman, who was a man of considerable means, purchased a farm of 160 acres, the same his grandson Frank Heyrman now resides on. At that time not a tree had been felled nor a habitation of any kind erected by white men but they soon had built a log cabin in which they resided until 1868 when, it was supplanted by a more substantial residence, which still stands. The land was densely covered with oak, pine, hemlock and maple trees and in the low places,ash trees. Wild animals were still numerous and troublesome.But the forests soon gave way before the axe of the pioneer and the cleared land not only afforded support for the family but yielded a comfortable income as well. On this farm John Heyrman passed the remainder of his life, dying August 25, 1874, a member of the Catholic Church and he was buried in the Finger Church Cemetery. Prior to his decease his two younger sons had left home and engaged in business, Charles L. alone remaining on the farm. Charles L. Heyrman was born September 8, 1827, in Belgium and as will be seen, was nearly thirty years of age when he came with his father to the United States. In Brown County, WI, on January 6, 1857, he was united in marriage with Miss MonicaVanLent, also a native of Belgium, and they immediately settled on the home farm with his father and there made a permanent home. To their union was born six children, of whom Frank is the subject of this sketch; Mary is the wife of Martin Lindsley of Bellevue township; Celia is married to Julius Lamal of Humboldt township; Edward died in 1893 at the age of twenty-four years; two sons died in infancy. Mr. Heyrman was very successful and became on of the leading farmers in his township,continuing to live on the home farm until his death, which occurred September 8, 1889, when he was just sixty-two years old and his remains now rest in the Finger Church Cemetery. He was a Catholic in religious faith and one of the founders of the Church of the Holy Martyrs of Gorcum in Preble Township, of which for many years he was a leading member. Mr. Heyrman served as supervisor of his township. In his political preferences he was a Democrat, invariably supporting that party in state and national elections but in township and county affairs he was non-partisan, the fitness of a candidate being more important to him than party connection. Since his death his widow has resided on the home farm with our subject. She Is devout member of the Catholic Church Heyrman was born November 25, 1858 in Preble Township,Brown County, on the farm he now owns and resides on. He attended the first school ever held in his district, the "hall of learning" being a log cabin and was among the first pupils the day it was opened, the teacher being Miss Aldrich, a daughter of C.N. Aldrich of Preble Township. At the same time he received thorough training to agriculture under the direction of his father on the home place where his whole life has been passed. On February 19, 1889, our subject was united in marriage with Miss Clara DeGreef, who was born in HumboldtTownship, Brown County, November 27, 1865, daughter of Anton DeGreef who came from Belgium. Three children have been born to them; Louis, John and Kate, who represent the fourth generation of the Heyrman family who has lived on the farm. Politically,Mr. Heyrman is a Democrat and one of the leading members of the party in his township where he has held various offices of honor and trust. For two years he served in the important position of chairman of the township and has also been assessor, proving himself an efficient and trustworthy official. He keeps himself informed on the movements of his party and is well read on all current topics, finding a great help in his excellent memory.Though still young, he is a respected, worthy representative of the farming community in Preble Township and is foremost in every movement of interest or benefit to his section.
