The Early Settlers of St. John's Parish at Union Hill in 1867

Gerhard Klinkhammer

Gerhard Klinkhammer had died before the church was built in Union Hill. Gerhard and his family came to America in 1852 and first settled at Brighton (Kenosha Co) Wisconsin. About five years later they settled on a farm four miles south of Union Hill. (Derryname Twp)

The Klinkhammers came from Ripsdorf, Germany. After a short life in the new land, Gerhard passed away. He was buried near the earlier St. John's Church. Mrs Klinkhammer passed away in her ninetieth year near Ellsworth and her remains were brought to the Union Hill area for burial. Mr Klinkhammer was reburied in the present cemetary and now lies alongside his wife's grave.

The family consisted of three children: Peter of Union Hill, Joseph of Heidelberg, and Mrs. John J. Lenz (Anna) of Ellsworth.

Carl Witt

The biography of the Carl Witt family is indeed one that portrays the spirit and determination of the pioneer settler even under extreme difficulties. It is filled with savagery and tragedy as well as with happiness.

The Carl Witts and their four children came from Wangerin, Germany to LaCrosse, Wisconsin in 1857. Wangerin was located in the state of Pomerania in Protestant Germany; approximately 125 northeast of Berlin. Today the community is located in Poland.

While in Wisconsin, Mrs. Witt passed away. Carl was married again to his deceased wife's sister and in 1859 he moved the family to Brown County, Minnesota. Shortly afterwards they began farming in the Birch Coulee area of the Minnesota River Valley in Renville County near Morton, Minnesota. They were located near the Sioux Indian Reservation and so became acquainted with many of them on the reservation. In 1862, the young Sioux braves, angered by the past misdeeds of the white man went on the war path determined to kill all white settlers in southern Minnesota. Many white settlers were killed including Mrs. Witt as the warriors headed southeast to attack Fort Ridgely.

The following is the story of this tragedy as told by one of their children, H. Carl Witt:

"It was about noon. Father had gone some distance away to cut hay and my brother William had brought home a load with the oxen a short time before. My stepmother was stacking the hay in the yard and William was unloading it when five Indians appeared. They had on warpaint and carried guns, but were on foot. We had a big dog that always made for Indians and when my stepmother saw them coming she got down and caught the dog and tied him up, as she always did when Indians came. But they walked up to the stack and without saying a word, shot my stepmother in the breast. She died almost instantly. William jumped down from the wagon on the side opposite the Indians and ran into the woods. We children were playing near the cabin. My oldest sister, Augusta, was working in New Ulm. There was an opening for a cellar beside the cabin and I was standing beside it when one of the Indians leveled his gun at me. One bullet struck me in the back of the head and another entered my left hip. Although I was not quite eight years old, I knew enough to lie still when I fell. I had fallen into the cellar opening. The other children had hidden in a little smoke house father had built.

"For some reason, the Indians didn't stay to kill the rest of us. They probably thought I was dead and may not have seen the others. Anyway, they didn't stop to take any scalps but hurried on, perhaps to attack some other family. William had hidden in a hollow log in the woods, and, wounded as I was, I ran with the other children to find him. He went after my father, who came home at once. They buried my stepmother where she had fallen and we packed up and set out for Fort Ridgely with the oxen. At the fort, a doctor removed the two bullets from my head and my hip. It seems that the bullet that entered my head had glanced and did not penetrate deeply, while the other had caused only a flesh wound.

"We stayed at the fort until the worst part of the fighting was over and then went to New Ulm. We remained there awhile and then went to St. Peter and from there came to Belle Plaine, where we were housed in a warehouse with other refugees. If it were not for the small cannon at the Fort we would all have been killed.

After a brief stay in Belle Plaine, the family moved to Union Hill in 1863 where they settled on the Franz Giesen farm. Carl later married Mrs. John Giesen, a widow with two children. Her husband had died shortly after finding his brother, Franz, dead under a fallen tree.

Mrs. John Giesen (Helen Hoffmann) was born in Dollendorf, Germany, to William and Sybilla Hoffmann who brought her to this country in 1854. She married her neighbor, John Giesen and lived on his farm until his death. They had two children, Frank of Union Hill and Mrs. John Lenz (Elizabeth) of Ellsworth.

Carl's family consisted of four sets of children. To his first wife were born four children. They were William of Shakopee, Mrs. Joseph Hoffmann (Augusta), H. Carl, and Mrs. Peter Klinkhammer (Louisa) of Union Hill. His second wife bore him two children, Joe of New Ulm and Mrs. Peter Bettendorf (Mary) of St. Cloud. His last marriage gave him two foster children and four of his own. The four were Mrs. Tom Lenz (Margred) of Ellsworth, John of Omaha, Henry of Union Hill, and Mrs. Math Seuer (Helen) of New Market.

Joseph Schneider

Shortly after their marriage in 1853 in Dollendorf, Germany, the Schneiders came to America. They made their home in Wisconsin and in the later 1850's came to Union Hill. Joseph bought a farm a mile north of Union Hill. Mrs. Schneider was a sister to Mrs. William Hoffman. The Hoffmans accompanied them on their trip to this country and settled on a neighboring farm.

Joseph was born in 1825. His wife, Anna was born in 1814 to Theodore and Anna Schmitz Klinkhammer. They had two sons; John of Turton, South Dakota and William of Browns Valley, Minn.

The committee selected to seek a proper location for the church in 1867 inluded Joseph. His membership in the new church was short lived, however, for less than two years later, he was dead. He died in 1869 and was one of the first to be buried in the new cemetary of St. John's

John Joseph Lenz

John Joseph Lenz was a man of more than ordinary abililty. While at Union Hill, he served repeatedly as county commissioner and in 1883 was elected to the state legislature. Later while living in Ellsworth his influence was instrumental in attracting a large number of German settlers to that area. At the time of his death, he owned about 1200 acres of land in the Ellsworth area.

Hon. J.J. Lenz was born in 1834 in Alendorf, Germany and came to the Brighton Wisconsin area around 1851. In 1856, he moved to the Union Hill area along with his brothers. He became acquainted with Anna Maria Klinkhammer also of the Union Hill area and in June 1863, they were married. She was born in 1845 in Ripsdorf, Germany, to Mr. and Mrs. Gerhard Klinkhammer who came to this country in 1852. They made their home on his farm one mile east of Union Hill. In 1883, Mr. Lenz sold his farm to Adam Ruhland and moved with his wife and family to Ellsworth, Minnesota. There land was more plentiful for his large family who also were interested in farming.

The Lenz's had 13 children, seven sons and six daughters. They included Nicholas of Souix Falls; Peter of Wolf's Point, Montana; Barbara (Mrs Peter Ruffing) of Marshfield, Wisconsin; Gerhard of Adrian; Rudolph of Litchfield; Margaret (Mrs Jacob Ruffing) of Adrian; Theresa (Mrs. Anton Pint) of Adrian; Johanna (Mrs. Charles Witt) of Watertown, South Dakota; Catherine of Adrian; Joseph of Nashua, Minnesota; Herman of Adrian; Dorothy (Mrs. Fred Pass) of Madison, Minnesota; and Leo of Barney North Dakota.

SACRED HEART CATHOLIC CHURCH
pages 256-264
The following excerpt from the above article concerns Msgr. Klinkhammer
and is found on pages 262-263.

Msgr. William Klinkhammer was born at Union Hill, Minn., on April 21, 1879. He was reared on his father’s farm and received his primary education at St. John’s District school. His secondary, classical, and theological education was received from St. John’s University and Seminary at Collegeville, Minn. He was ordained in the St. John’s Abbey Chapel, June 13, 1908, by Bishop James Trobec of the Diocese of St. Cloud. He was ordained for the Diocese of Duluth and served the parish of Park Rapids, erecting a church there, and the mission parishes of Two Inlets, Akeley and Nevis.
After the division of the Diocese of Duluth and the formation of the Crookston Diocese, Father Klinkhammer was assigned to the latter and appointed pastor in July, 1911 to Sacred Heart Church. During his pastorate at the growing Catholic parish, he started a Catholic school in 1912, supervising the construction of a three-story brick building.
Sacred Heart Academy at first had only elementary grades, but starting 1919 added a secondary division. The sisters of St. Scholastica of Duluth staffed the schools for a number of years and were replaced by the newly formed Sisters of St. Benedict of Crookston about 1919. Meanwhile, Father Klinkhammer supervised the construction of a large convent for the teaching sisters and as a place to board country girls attending Sacred Heart Academy.
After serving as pastor of the East Grand Forks parish for 33 years and in recognition of his good work, father Klinkhammer was appointed domestic prelate by Pope Pius XII giving him the title of “Right Reverend Monsignor.” In addition to his parish activities, he served the Diocese as Officialis since 1918 and as consultor since 1939.
Msgr. Klinkhammer was known as an outstanding and caring leader of his parishioners. He made it a habit to visit each of his parishioners at least once a year. Young men going off to serve in World War II would stop to receive his blessing.
After a long illness, Msgr. Klinkhammer died on Sept. 22, 1947 at a St. Paul hospital. His funeral was held at Sacred Heart Catholic Church on Sept. 25 with an over-flowing attendance by his parishioners.
His dying wish had been to build enlarged and modern facilities for Sacred Heart School and a new Sacred Heart Church. Bishop Schenk of Crookston appointed the pastor of Sacred Heart, Father A.I. Merth, with the task in late 1949.
Msgr. Klinkhammer had started sometime earlier planning this project by saving $116,000 by the time of his death. In the succeeding years, Father Merth and the parishioners followed through with Msgr. Klinkhammer’s dream and built a new church, high school, grade school, gym, rectory and an addition to the convent in the 1950’s.
Msgr. Klinkhammer left behind a legacy as a man who was deeply concerned about the spiritual development of the parish community. His devotion to Catholic education, firmness of spirit, leadership and love of his parish family are still remembered and recalled at Sacred Heart.

REVEREND WILLIAM KLINKHAMMER
pages 271-272

Reverend William Klinkhammer, pastor of the Sacred Heart Catholic church at East Grand Forks, is a native of Minnesota, born in Le Sueur county, April 21, 1879, the some of Peter and Louis (Wilt) Klinkhammer, who were natives of Germany. Peter Klinkhammer came to the United States as a child and to Minnesota in 1852 and as a pioneer settler of Le Sueur county, was identified with the hardships and privations of the early days and all the activities attending the organization and development of the prosperous farming comm.unity. In the troublous times of 1862 the mother suffered the loss of friends and relatives in the Sioux massacre and he gave service himself, in a Minnesota regiment, in the quelling of the uprising and was a member of the guard in charge of the thirty0eight Sioux braves at Mankato. His influence was prominent in the organization of the St. Johns Catholic church in his home county and in all matters of public welfare. He was elected to various offices of local importance and gave able service as a county commissioner. He is still living on the old homestead. William Klinkhammer was reared on his father’s farm and educated in St. Johns University, the leading Catholic school of Minnesota, where he was ordained in June, 1908, by Bishop Trobec of St. Cloud. His first pastorate was a Park Rapids, Minnesota, where he remained for three years, during which time the present church building was erected, and the parish well organized for efficient service. In July, 1911, he was transferred to the Sacred Heart Parish where his admirable ministrations have proven him amply qualified to advance the work of that already splendidly equipped organization. The Sacred Heart Parish was organized in 1893 by the Catholics of East Grand Forks and the surrounding territory and from its first establishment evidenced the vital and worthy activity which has marked its rapid growth. The loss of the newly finished church building, which was erected through the zealous efforts of the members, by fire in 1895 only resulted in a renewed strength of purpose and from the ashes of the first structure, rose a larger and finer building. The first pastor was Father Hendricks, who was succeeded in 1900 by Father J.F. Greene, who served the parish until his death in February, 1909. It was during this period that the present parsonage was built at an expenditure of $8,000 and the furnishing of the church completed. After the death of Father Green, Father J. Hogan was put in charge and under his administration the organization of the various interests of the church advanced notably. Father Klinkhammer succeeded Father Hogan after the return of the latter to his former diocese of Duluth which had been divided in 1910 for the establishment of the see in Crookston. Father Klinkhammer combines a rarely genial and companionable personality with a marked executive ability which was happily forwarded and consecrated labors of his life and resulted in the increased efficiency of the parish through the splendid parochial school which he instituted under the encouragement of Bishop Corbett of Crookston. The finely equipped school building was finished in September, 1912, and put in charge of seven teachers who are Sisters of St. Benedict from Villa Sancta Scholastica, Duluth. The school now enrolls two hundred pupils and furnishes an excellent curriculum of preparatory studies for the high school. The membership of the Sacred Heart church numbers some fourteen souls.
 

Mary Klinkhammer
Mary Klinkhammer was born in Union Hill, Minnesota on September 20, 1887 to Peter and Johanna Louise Klinkhammer. She was the last survivor of a family of nine brothers and two sisters. She died on March 26, 1981 at St. Therese Home, Minneapolis. A mass of the Resurrection was celebrated and burial took place at Union Hill on Saturday March 28. Miss Klinkhammer came to East Grand Forks, MN to be her brother's housekeeper in 1930. After his death she served Fr. A.M. Seitz as his housekeeper from 1945-1978 at Wilton, Fosston, Roseau, Hallock and Ada.
