Circa 1997 A Sauk County Flying Legend

George Schlieckau, born in 1904, was the oldest aviator to regularly use the Reedsburg airport. George’s name has been linked to the Reedsburg port ever since he soloed Cecil Hess there in 1928. He himself had soloed just the year before when he was 23 years old.

Schlieckau owned the first airplane in Sank County and owned eight different planes during his lifetime.

George had many flying stories to recount when interviewed in 1997 for Reedsburg Remembers 150 Years. This one he tells often. After he first received his license, his parents wanted to go to Kansas to a wedding so George took them to the train station. The next morning he secretly left by plane for the same Kansas town. His plane had no brakes or compass; he had very little experience.

George will never forget the landing — in a Kansas wheat field. From the air the wheat looked to be six inches tall; it turned out to be three feet. The plane was about to nose over, but he applied more gas which brought the tail back down.

After staying with relatives for five days, George had to find a way out of that field. Cousins and neighbors helped get the plane to the road. There were highlines on either side, but he managed to take off with a yard on each side to spare. He noted that, “It was a damn foolish thing to do.”

Although George never knew Charles Lindbergh personally, he was his inspiration. “Lindbergh would fly around the country to give demonstrations,” said Schlieckau. "I took them all in. I told my brother that if Lindberg made it over to Paris [in 1927], I was going to buy my own plane. Four days after he flew to Paris,” recalled Schlieckau, “I purchased an airplane. It was a World War I primary trainer—a Curtis biplane with an Ox-5 engine."

George had the plane but now he had to go to Illinois for flying lessons.

Schlieckau recalled, in a 1991 Baraboo News Republic article that, “The first time I took the plane up by myself, I knew I would be having trouble with the gliding before the landing. If I went too fast, I overshot the landing field and if I came in too slow, I’d drop before the field.

“When I tried to come in to land on my first flight, I hit the ground before the landing field,” he said. “I bounced so hard that I went up 12 feet and cleared the trees and fence to get to the landing field. My instructor was in the field waving for me to go up again and circle around before landing. I forgot for a minute why he was there and waved back to him!

I did go up again,” said George, “and managed to land fine on the second try, although, I almost went through the hanger at the other end of the field.”

After three days of instruction during a week of fog and rain, and three and one half hours of flying time, he took the plane home to show it off to his friends and neighbors. “It was a pretty exciting time on the telephone lines,” he said, as neighbors passed along the sights they had seen. By his second flight at home, he was already giving rides. “Practically everyone around this area had a ride,” said Schlieckau.

At 93, Schlieckau had cataracts removed and laser treatment on his eyes and he said he could see as well as a ten-year old. He continued flying until shortly before his death in 1999.7

     HENRY SCHLICKAU. One of the fine farms of Westfield Township is that owned by Henry Schlickau, and it has repaid his industry and intelligent management throughout the thirty years he has lived there, giving him prosperity and an enviable position among the representative citizens of Sauk County. Mr. Schlickau was born in Hanover, Germany, March 20, 1862, a son of Henry and Mary (Hams) Schlickau. When he was seven years of age he came with his parents to America. The family arrived in Illinois in May, 1869, and the following August went to Westfield Township of Sauk County. His parents bought 120 acres of wild land. It was a tremendous task to cut down the trees and only gradually was the change made from the wilderness into settled conditions of agriculture. The father lived a long and industrious life and passed away in May, 1901, while his wife died in February preceding his death. Henry Schlickau, Sr., was an active member and an official in the Lutheran Church. Their children were Henry, William, Annie and Lizzie. The son William married Katherina Elling and now lives in Kansas. Annie is the wife of Carl Stoletie of Hill Point, Sauk County. Lizzie married Charles Giffert, of Westfield Township. Mr. Henry Schlickau married, March 2, 1887, at the age of twenty five, Miss May Hahn, daughter of George and Dorothy Hahn, of Westfield Township. In the same year of their marriage Mr. and Mrs. Schlickau located on their present farm, and here they have reared their family and while making ample provisions for their training and comfort they have still been prospered and find themselves in a comfortable and valuable home and surrounded with all the comforts and good things of life. Mr. Schlickau is a progressive farmer, using the silo system of feeding, and has made many improvements on the farm by his own hands. He is a republican voter and an active member of the Lutheran Church.
Mrs. Schlickau's brothers and sisters were: Catherine, now deceased; Henry, also deceased; Anne; and Dora. Anne is the wife of Fred Reineke, of Westfield Township. Dora married Christ Yenke, of Honey Creek Township. Catherine became the wife of Chris Neinmann, and he now lives in the State of Washington. Mr. and Mrs. Henry Schlickau have a bright and interesting family of six children, all of them still at home and unmarried. Their names and dates of birth are: August, 1888; Lizzie, 1889; Mary, 1894; Annie, 1898; Dora, 1901; and George, 1904. These children were well educated in the local public schools and also attended a school conducted by the Lutheran Church. Henry Schlieckau II immigrated with Henry Schlieckau and Maria Harms on 2 June 1868; George arrived, by ship, in America with his older brother Henry and Henry's family in 1868.

Father*Reverand Simon S. Spyker b. 23 Dec 1824, d. 8 Feb 1911
Mother*Rosanna Kiefer b. 10 Aug 1829, d. 25 Aug 1900
Name TypeDateDescription
Name VariationHenry Hartwell Spyker was also known as H. Spyker.
  • Henry Hartwell Spyker was born on 1 September 1860 at Spring Green, Sauk, Wisconsin, also reported as Ithaca, Richland, Wisconsin.
  • He was the son of Reverand Simon S. Spyker and Rosanna Kiefer.
  • Henry Hartwell Spyker married Sarah M. Zintz, daughter of Conrad Zintz and Magdalena Adams, on 30 January 1884 at at the residence of Chester William Davis, Ithaca, Richland, Wisconsin, Seldom has the quiet stream of social events of our peaceful neighborhood been disturbed by so huge a wave as swept over us on the evening of January 30th, on the marriage of Mr. Henry Spyker and Miss Sarah Zintz, not more on account of the high social position of the contracting parties, than on account of the social and individual worth of each. Having been reared in each other's society from infancy, they form that rare thing under the sun, a happy union, with which no one can find fault and if kind wishes of friends would do it they would be surrounded by Heaven's choicest blessings.
    The ceremony was performed at the residence of Mr. C. W. Davis, at eight o'clock by Rev S. Spyker in a most solumn and impressive manner. The bride was arrayed in a brown silk made in a simple and becoming style. The groom, groomsman and bridesmaid were all elegantly and tastefully dressed. Miss Mattie Spyker served as bridesmaid and Mr. Clarence Inman, of Sauk County, as best man. Scarcely were the solumn ceremonies making them man and wife ended before the guests were agreeably surprised by a serenade from the Ithaca coronet band, and considering the time they have had for practice they did well. The boys were invited in and after the happy couple had received the congratulations of friends. All were invited to partake of one of the suppers which is a joy to behold, much more to eat. The tables fairly groaned under their load of fruits, confectionery and all manner of eatables. To say the host and hostess had done their best is to say it was grand, for "Chet" and his wife do nothing by halves. The festivities were kept up until a late hour, and continued the next morning by a reception at the groom's parents, Rev. and Mrs Spyker, where the guests were served to one of Mrs Spyker's best dinners, and anyone who has ever "broken bread" with them know it ws second to none. About sixty guests were present at both places. Taken all in all it was one of the most enjoyed and enjoyable events of a lifetime.
