- Note: ANGELUS VERBKICK an honored pioneer and one of New Berlin's thrifty farmers. lie was born in Waterland, Oudeman Province, Belgium, January 27, 1829, and is a son of Francis and Belledina (Starke) Verbrick, being the youngest of three sons. Pieter, the eldest of the brothers, died in his native country aged twenty years. Francis, the second, is a prosperous farmer of Outagamie County, Wis. When Angelus was two years of age his father was called to the spirit laud. Two years afterward his mother was married to Henortis Dalle, who managed the small estate of his father; however Mr. Dalle did not long survive, dieing in 1852. By her second marriage the mother had three children, two of whom are living, John, who resides with our subject, and Sophia, who became the wife of Benortis Vondenburger, a well-to-do farmer and stockman of Cuming County, Neb., having resided there since 1866. The gentleman whose name heads this record was reared to the pursuit of farming, in which his father was engaged in a small way during his life time, ills educational advantages were very meager, as be attended school but three months each winter, for three years. His family being very poor it was necessary, as soon as he was able, not only to do all he could toward supporting himself, but also to aid in providing for the home. Hearing of the opportunities that were afforded in the New World for one to make his mark, he determined to seek his fortune in the United States, and on the 18th of April, 1801, set sail from Rotterdam for New York, on the three-mast vessel "Isabella." For seventy-two days the ship was tossed upon the waves of the Atlantic, thirteen of the two hundred and eighty-three passengers dieing, from various causes, while en route to this country. From the city of New York Mr. Verbrick went to Paterson, N. J., where his first winter in America was spent. In February of the following year he again turned his face westward, coming as far as Chicago by rail. There being no railroad at that time from that city to Milwaukee, whither he desired to go, it became necessary to secure other means of transportation. Having but ? left, and not caring to be stranded among strangers, he slept the second night of his stay in Chicago in a roundhouse. The next morning he set out on foot for Milwaukee, applying for work among the farmers along the road. Being small of stature and unable to speak in the English language, he labored under great disadvantage. One farmer where he sought employment remarked, "Why you are too little to do the hard work on a farm." When within about nine miles of Milwaukee, he stopped over night with a farmer, who treated him very kindly. The evening of the third day found him in Milwaukee. The following day he came to Waukesha County, where he secured work on the farm of Benjamin Hunkins on section 10, in the town of New Berlin, the property now owned by Tolln Stigler. Beginning April 6, 1855, be remained in the employ of Mr. Hunkins until the close of the year, receiving for his services 811 per month. Upon settlement, however, his employer presented him with a $20 bill as a token of his appreciation of the faithful manner in which he had served him. His next occupation was cutting wood at fifty cents a cord; he continued at that work until spring opened, when he engaged to work for that well known pioneer, P. V. Monroe, beginning in April. The winter of 1857 he began an apprenticeship at the cooper's trade with Mr. George Frank, remaining two winters and one summer.
February 17, 1858, Mr. Verbrick was united in marriage with Maria Starke, a daughter of Pieter and Emily (Deering) Starke. Mrs. Verbrick is a native of Isendyke, Province of Zeeland, Holland, where her birth occurred April 7, 1837. She, too, lost her father when a child of two summers, after which her mother became the wife of Francis Price, a native of Belgium. Of the first marriage there were two children, Mrs. Verbrick and a younger sister, and of the second, live, of whom four are living: Jacob, who resides on the old homestead of his father in Vernon Township; John, who is a farmer of Waulcesiia Township; Sophia, who became the wife of M. Powers, of Big Bend, Vernon Township, and Stanchia, who wedded John Nick, a farmer residing on section 29, in the town of New Berlin. In 1854 this family emigrated to the United States; sailing from Rotterdam for New York on the Arnold Borninger, leaving the port of the former city on the 2nd of May, they arrived at quarantine in New York Bay, August 5. A few days later the family was safely housed on a farm near Paterson, N. J. Two years later they came to Wisconsin, locating in the town of New Berlin. The families had been acquainted in the old country and the friendship was renewed, resulting in the marriage of Mr. and Mrs. Verhrick as related above.
Mr. and Mrs. Verbrick began their domestic life with very little of this world's goods, but by untiring effort and frugality they have secured a comfortable home. After completing his apprenticship Mr. Verbrick rented a shop of a Mr. Nash, who resided on section 15. In 1860 he owned his own shop. About a quarter of a century ago he purchased the home upon which he resides, a farm of four hundred and thirty-nine and forty-three hundredths acres on section 28, to which he has added ten acres lying in section 21. Of the farm about thirty acres remain in timber, while the rest is under cultivation, food buildings have been erected and other improvements made; a large barn was built in the summer of 1893, the interior of which is arranged in the most modern style. By economy and thrift Mr.Verbrick and wife saved enough of their small earnings to pay the passage of the former's mother, brother and wife, step-brother and step-sister to this country in 1865. His venerable mother suffered a severe cold while on the trip, from the effects of which she never recovered; she was laid to rest in New York, the sad tidings being brought by his brother. In politics Mr. Verbrick is a Democrat, though he has never cared for official honors, preferring to devote his time to agricultural pursuits. With his family he belongs to St. Joseph's Catholic Church of New Berlin.
Mr. and Mrs. Verbrick have eight children, one having died in infancy. The living are: Emily, who became the wife of John Miller, is a resident of Waukesha; Rosalie, who is quite an accomplished dressmaker, is at home; William is serving as Town Clerk of New Berlin, and is also Deputy Sheriff of the county; Peter is engaged in blacksmithing in New Berlin; Mary is one of Waukesha County's most successful teachers. At present she presides in No. 3, in Prospect, where she has taught continuously for four years. Her first school was taught at No. 1. She has taught four terms at North Greenfield, Milwaukee County; nine at No. 3, her present charge, and one at No. 8. She is an accomplished and talented young lady, and a valued instructor, as her record shows. Stanchia, the next, is an accomplisjied musician; Celia is a graduate of the Union High School of Waukesha, and has received a second grade certificate as a teacher; Lizzie, the youngest, has a decided talent for music and is the pet of the household. The three last named are yet at home.
