Saint Wolfgang

(b. 924 d. 994) was a holy and dedicated Catholic missionary who became the Apostle of Bavaria in the land of Bohemia. Wolfgang was best known for his preaching, teaching abilities and his charity care for the people of the diocese.
Bohemia had an area of 20,058 square miles. According to the 1900 census Bohemia had a population of 6,316,697. It was one of the most thickly settled provinces of the monarchy, having 315 inhabitants to the square mile. The Czechs form 63 percent of the population, and the Germans 36 per cent. The Germans live chiefly near the boundaries of the country especially near the northern and northwestern boundaries.
The Hilgart family originated in the Bohemian Forest area in what is now the Czech Republic, Europe. For centuries people lived on rural farms working as farmers, miners and glass makers. They cut wood fro fuel and building materials from the Bohemian Forest. Many people dreamed of a place where they could own land and not be responsible to a land baron.

First Generation To Immigrate To America
Hemmelreich is a farming community located on the western slope of the Osser Mountain approximately one mile or so from the town of Lam. No one knows exactly why Wolfgram II decided to immigrant to America. A possible reason for leaving would have to do with political issues, mandatory commitment to enlist in the military. Also Karolina had a brother who immigrated to America prior to 1891.

In 1891 Wolfgang II and Karolina and Frank, their first born boarded a ship (probably out of Rotterdam) bound for America. Upon arrival to America in 1891, Karolina was not allowed to disembark the ship due to a severe flu epidemic and only allowed to leave once they were cured. They later traveled to Fifield Wisconsin. In 1894 Wolfgang II moved his family to Park Falls and started farming.

"The ability to go where you please, do whatever you want and to live the life style u chose. Wolfgang II and his family came to America to live that dream, they embraced the rules of their new government, they learned to speak it's language, became citizens of this great country, and by doing so became part of it's society. May God continue to bless our "Land of the Free and Home of the Brave".
