"The year was 1859, Wisconsin had been a state for just eleven years. Abraham Lincoln had just been elected President, and the Civil War was just two years away.

A settlement sprung up in South East Fond Du Lac County called Eblesville:

EBLESVILLE. The village was founded by Andrew Eble, who came from Milwaukee, in 1855, purchased the water-power and built a saw-mill. He was accidentally shot on Christmas, 1859.

Adjacent to Eblesville was the town of New Fane, named after a town in New York from which the “Yankees” had come. The New Fane Post Office, established on the line between Sections 29 and 30 in 1851, by T. S. Wilcox, was moved to Eblesville in 1875.

In 1875, the New Fane Post Office, which had been established in 1852, was moved to Section 55 and absorbed Eblesville completely. The village consisted of a saw and feed mill, two stores, and the usual number of shops.

Many of the new settlers in this area who had emigrated from Germany wished to start a Lutheran Congregation. In 1858, August Oppermann, Carl Bleck, Frederick Schultz, August Lubach, Christian Bilgow, William Backhaus, Henry Heberer and a man named Heise, wrote to the Rev. Peter Dicke who was serving Immanuel Church in Hocheim, a congregation thirty-six miles away, expressing their desire to begin a congregation in New Fane. Immanuel Church was located three miles south of Theresa on the Hocheim Road. Despite the difficulties involved in such a long trip, the Pastor agreed to travel to New Fane.

A note from Rev. Dicke's diary reads:

'In the winter of 1857-58, I received two letters asking me to visit them. In the week of the second Sunday after Easter I borrowed a horse and saddle and started on the 36 mile trip. After I got to Fond Du Lac County it began to rain quite hard. My horse became so tired I had to lead him. It was quite dark when I finally reached the home of the people I had come to see. ... I was quite faint."

But despite these hardships, Pastor Dicke on December 5, 1859, conducted the first service at the Henry Oppermanns home. Services were also held at Henry Heberer's home. Pastor Dicke made the long trip from Immanuel church for three years before he was called to Shawano, WI. He baptized 24 children and confirmed 3 young people.
A parcel of land was donated by Henry Heberer for the church site in 1860, and a log cabin church was built during that year. The congregation was legally organized on June 24, 1861.

In 1863, Rev. Theodore Krumsieg was called as our first resident Pastor. He lived with the Henry Heberer family until the first parsonage was completed.

In 1864 the first parsonage was completed. Minutes from a June 24, 1864 meeting that was translated from German states:

'Meeting was opened at 9:00 AM with a prayer. Mr. Bardelz's time as a trustee was over and they elected Mr. Oppermann as trustee for three years. A member proposed to have school only in the morning for the summer because the parents need the children for working in the fields and it is too hot in the school for the children. This was accepted.'

November 4, 1864 minutes reflect: 'They checked the bills and receipts from the last quarter. The pastor should get more money because he has not enough to take care of his family, and he needs fifty dollars for his debt. It was decided to give him fifty dollars and also give him fifty dollars more the following year. Because Mr. ________didn't go to church even after many invitations to come to church and meetings, it was decided to excommunicate him.'

The minutes of the November 4, 1867 meeting were:

'They opened with a prayer and a song. Mr. Backhaus wasn't finished with the receipts from last year and they adjourned it until next Sunday. The Pastor should get more money because he hasn't enough to feed his family. He should get fifty bushels of potatoes instead of thirty. Instead of wheat he should get meat. Instead of hay he should get money, forty dollars for wheat, twenty dollars for hay, and the meat should get paid with money. He should get paid three weeks before Christmas. The members have to bring wood for pastor and the church.'

The four years that Rev. Krumsieg spent at our church saw the congregation grow! He baptized 52 infants, confirmed 47 young people, and performed 17 marriages and 8 burials. He accepted a call to Minnesota in 1867."

Rex Courtney Gray (1898-1932) Death certificate
Rex Courtney Gray (1898-1932) Death certificate

Indianapolis Star -- Saturday, December 10, 1932, p. 1: "Mars Hill Man, Disturbed Four Times, Fires Twice as Screen Is Ripped. Rex Gray, 34 years old, was shot and wounded probably fatally late last night as he attempted to tear a screen from a rear window of a Mars Hill home. He is in the City hospital in a critical condition with wounds from two charges from a .12 gauge shotgun. Deputy Sheriffs Kinney and Thomas took a statement from Anthony J. Gasvoda, 31 years old, of Mars Hill, the householder, but did not hold him. Gasvoda declared that a prowler had visited the house four times last night before Gray was shot. Each time he was frightened away. Oscar McBride, deputy sheriff stationed in Maywood, identified Gray as the man he had seen near the Gasvoda home on two occasions earlier in the night. Gray had been released under bond awaiting trial on charges of burglary and grand larceny.

Frightened by the continued appearance of the prowler, Gasvoda hid in the darkened kitchen after his wife had retired. He said that in a few minutes, Gray approached the window and with a nail in a stick began to tear at the screen. Gasvoda shouted and when the man failed to reply, he fired twice. Physicians said that Gray has little or no chance for life; part of his abdomen was torn away.

Gray was arrested May 9 in Indianapolis with Louis Shepensky and George Loman, and is said to have confessed entering a Kroger grocery store at 2154 Madison avenue and the theft of $50 in merchandise. Most of the loot was recovered in Gray's garage, detectives said. The three confessed that they hauled the stolen merchandise to the garage in an automobile stolen in Anderson, Madison County, IN."


Indianapolis Sunday Star, 11 Dec 1932, p.5: "Gunshot Wounds Fatal to Prowler; Rex Gray, 34 years old, alleged burglar, died early yesterday morning in the City hospital of Indianapolis {from} wounds in the abdomen, suffered while prowling at a home In Mars Hill late Friday night. . . . Gray, the father of four children, was at liberty on bond, having been arrested on charge of burglary and grand larceny last June in connection with a burglary at Kroger grocery store at 2154 Madison avenue. His case was before the grand jury. . . ."


Indianapolis, IN Star, Wednesday, December 14, 1932, p. 4: Widow Testifies; Family of Slain Prowler Aids in Convicting His Companions. The widow and twin daughters of a slain prowler yesterday presented testimony in Criminal court that helped send two former associates of the husband and father to prison for long terms. George Loman, 21 years old, was sentenced to serve ten years in the Indiana state reformatory on a robbery charge and he received a three-to-ten-year sentence on a burglary indictment. Louis Shopinsky, 24 years old, was given a three-to-ten-year sentence on the burglary charge. Witnesses Give Testimony. Mrs. Eileen Gray, widow of Rex Gray, who was shot to death a few nights ago when he was alleged to have attempted to enter the home of Anthony J. Gasvoda of Mars Hill, told Judge Frank P. Baker that both Loman and Shopinsky had been companions of her husband in burglaries. Her testimony was substantiated by the twins, Jean and Jeanette, 13 years old Gray was killed by Gasvoda Friday night.

The two youths Were convicted jointly of entering a grocery. Gray had been named a joint defendant to the charge. Loman also was convicted of a taxicab holdup and received the ten-year sentence for that offense. An alleged Communist leader, who verbally protested the sentence imposed by Judge Frank P. Baker was ejected from the court room."


Indianapolis, IN Star, Sunday, December 18, 1932, p. 41: "GRAY, Rex C. We wish to express our most sincere thanks and appreciation for the many acts of kindness and sympathy shown us in the death of our husband and father, Rex C. Gray; also the Rev. Mr. Cook of the West Morris-Street Christian Church; also the singers and Mr. Bean-blossom, the undertaker. Wife and Children."
