Lavalle, Wisconsin, in 1875, at the age of sixty-nine, and his wife passed
away in 1877, aged sixty-six. They had a family of six children:
Elizabeth, Catherine, Eva and Lorenz, deceased; and Martin and Adam,
still living.
Adam Leicher attended school in Germany for four years before
coming to America. He was just old enough to appreciate his surrounding
and environment when the family settled at Hartford in Washington
County. The first school he attended there was, a private one and
in the basement of a house owned by Fred Prien. He is one of the few
men still living who can recall the time when the few children of Hartford
attended that old institution. Later he went to school in a. little
red schoolhouse. In the fall of 1865, when he was eighteen years of
age, he began an apprenticeship at the wagon making trade, and worked
steadily in that line for fifty-one years.
For several years he lived at Neosho in Dodge County, where in 1869
he married Miss Marietta Kendall. She was born in Walworth County,
Wisconsin, February 13, 1849, daughter of William and Eliza Kendall.
Her parents were natives of Vermont, were pioneers in Walworth County
and in 1851 removed to Dodge County and settled at Neosho, where they
died, her father July 10, 1892, and her mother in 1855. Her father after
the death of her mother married twice. His second wife was Louisa
Stoughson, and the one son of that union was William Fenton. His third
wife was Jane Goodwin, and she was the mother of a daughter, Nellie.
In 1870 Mr. and Mrs. Leicher moved to Loganville, where he established
a wagon shop and for years his shop was the place where the
farmers brought their instruments to be repaired and it became one of
the leading business establishments of the village. In 1892 Mr. Leicher
added an undertaking department, and continued in that business until
1915. In 1916 he practically retired from business altogether, although
he is still interested with his sons in a local automobile business.
In matters of politics Mr. Leicher is a republican. His fellow citizens
have shown their confidence in his judgment and integrity by electing
him and keeping him steadily in the position of justice of the peace for
over forty years. With many other good things to his credit it remains to
account briefly for his family. Eleven children'were born to him and
his wife, and most of them have grown up to occupy honorable stations
in the world. William L., the oldest, was born March 6, 1870, and is now
deceased; Fenton A., born March 20, 1873, is now in the automobile business at Luverne, Minnesota; Edward L. was born September 23, 1876;
Albert, October 12, 1878; Lyda, June 24, 1879; Gilbert C., July 3, 1882;
Frank J., October 19, 1884; Cora May, May 11, 1887; Clyde and Claud,
twins, January 22, 1889; and Fernando, January 23, 1891. The sons,
Gilbert and Frank, with the assistance of their father as silent partner,
established an automobile business at Loganville under the name Leicher
Brothers, and they now have the leading garage and repair and accessory
shop of the town.
