     From 1988 biography of his granddaughter Margaret Stowell: "He was the older of two sons. In 1856 he came to America at age 17. In the winter of 1860-1861 he went south to what is now Mississippi about 20 miles south of Vicksburg and worked at cutting cord wood for the use of river boats. Of course politics both north and south were at a fever heat and threats of secession were loud. Mr. Niemann, having received a good education in his native country, wa able to read and judge for himself between right and wrong in the matter. In February of 1861 his employer asked him if, in the case the South seceded, he would not fight for the South, to which he gave an elusive reply, himself watching the events as closely as his employer. A short time after he saw the crisis must come, he quietly took a boat north and landed in Davenport, Iowa. When he learned of President Lincoln's call for 75,000 troops, he enlisted. April 1861 he was mustered into the 1st Regiment for three months and was sent into Missouri and was hastening to the battle of Springfield, MO when General Lyon was killed, but arrived too late to get into action. He served out his time and then reenlisted in Company I, Twelfth Missouri Infantry for three years. He was in a number of skirmishes and at Vicksburg, Mississippi he received a wound in his leg which disabled him for life. He was in the hospital until the end of the war and was then discharged. During all this time Mr. Niemann was not a citizen, never having been naturalized until after the war. He remained near St. Louis until 1867. In 1868 he went to Sauk County, Wisconsin and located in the village of Loganville, where he purchased 23 acres of land." Henry Friedrich Niemann served in the military at Co., I - 12 Vol. Reg. of Missouri, Missouri for Civil War. He immigrated in 1856 to New York. He migrated in 1868 at Sauk, Wisconsin. In 1880 HENRY F. NIEMANN, farmer; P. O. Loganville; son of William and Margaret (Bredfeld) Niemann; born in Holstein, Prussia, March 31, 1839; came to New York on 1856, and from there to Iowa; stopped in the vicinity of Davenport till the commencement of the war. Enlisted, in April, 1861, on the call for three-months men, and re-enlisted in the twelve-months volunteers for three years; was wounded at Vicksburg in the leg, by a gunshot; was in the hospital till the three years expired, and then discharged; remained about St. Louis till 1867; in 1868, came to Sauk Co. and located near the village of Loganville; has 23 acres of land; was Assessor three years, and was elected Justice of the Peace in 1879, and is now serving in that capacity. He was married at Loganville Nov. 25, 1871 to Annie Hasz, daughter of Peter and Rebecca Hasz; they have three children - Laura, Bertha and Henry.5

Croal witnessed the migration in 1851 at Danbury, Connecticut to, Jefferson, Wisconsin; According to The Kaney Family History written by Emmett Kaney, "He (Patrick Kaney) married Rose Croal, daughter of John and Catherine Clinton Croal, who came to America from Leitrim County, Ireland in 1851." Patrick E. Croal was employed by Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railroad; for 8 years circa 1859. He migrated circa 1867 at California. He was a railroad yard master in 1880. He migrated circa 1890 at Sauk, Wisconsin. In 1918 PATRICK CROAL. Two vocations, those of railroading and farming, have occupied the energies of Patrick Croal since he started upon his wage-earning career as a mere lad. For many years he traveled all over various parts of the country while acting in numerous capacities in the service of railroad companies, but in middle life settled down in Sauk County and became a farmer, and this occupation engaged his attention until 1916, when he retired, and took up his residence at Reedsburg. He is one of the substantial citizens of this thriving community, and whatever success has come to him has been the result of his own unaided efforts. Patrick Croal was born in County Leitrim, Ireland, in 1843, and is a son of John and Catherine (Clinton) Croal, also natives of Erin's Isle. He was but four years of age when brought to the United States by his parents, the first place of residence of the family being the City of Danbury, Connecticut, where they lived until 1851. In that year they migrated to Wisconsin and located on a farm in Jefferson County, where they established at first a humble home and began the cultivation of the soil. They were hard-working, god-fearing and industrious people, made the most of their opportunities, and through their continuous labor managed to develop a good farm and establish a comfortable home. While they spent many years in Jefferson County, the parents died at Milwaukee, the father in 1873, at the age of sixty-nine years, and the mother in 1878, when seventy years of age. They were devout members of the Catholic Church, and were laid to rest in Calvary Cemetery. John and Catherine Croal were the parents of ten children: Honora, James, Catherine, Andrew, Ann, Mary, Hannah, Rose, John and Patrick, of whom all are now deceased except the last named. Patrick Croal enjoyed the educational privileges afforded by the country schools of Jefferson County and was brought up on the homestead, it being the assumption of his father that he would adopt the vocation of farming when ready to start upon his career. However, like numerous other country boys, he was early attracted by the railroad, and, grasping the opportunity, managed to master the art of telegraphy. Thus equipped, he was qualified for a position with the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railroad, and entered the service of that line as a telegrapher, but this work did not prove congenial, and the youth gave up the key to become a brakeman. By the time he was seventeen years of age he was earning a man's salary as a conductor, and continued in that capacity for several years, the period of his connection with the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul covering eight years. At the end of that time Mr. Croal went to California, where he secured a position as a conductor on a line running from San Francisco to San Jose, and during the years that followed he covered a rather wide stretch of country in the extreme West, being at various times employed by most of the leading systems. After a quarter of a century of railroading Mr. Croal returned to Wisconsin, and April 8, 1892, was united in marriage with Miss Maria Daly, who was born in County Mayo, Ireland, in 1857, a daughter of Patrick and Jane (Moran) Daly. Patrick Daly was born in 1807, in County Mayo, and was there married to Jane Moran, who was born in 1820, and in 1862 they immigrated to the United States and located on a farm in Winfield Township, Sauk County. They succeeded in the cultivation of a good property and rounded out their lives there, the father dying in 1880 and the mother not long thereafter. Patrick Daly was an exceptionally well informed man, a profound student and a reader of the classics. He was a democrat in politics, and he and Mrs. Daly were consistent and devout members of the Catholic Church. Their children were as follows: Michael, who died as an infant in Ireland; Maria (1) and Jane, who also died in infancy; Catherine, who is the wife of John Loughney, of Ironton, Wisconsin; Maria, who is now Mrs. Croal; Patrick, who became one of the leading lawyers of Reedsburg and died here in 1911; John, who died in infancy; John (2) who is engaged in farming near Fond du Lac, Wisconsin; Frank P., M.D., a leading physician and surgeon of Reedsburg; and Martin, who died in infancy. In 1893 Mr. Croal purchased the Patrick Daly homestead in Winfield Township and settled down to farming operations, in which he is very successful. While his training up to 1893, with the exception of several years in his youth, had been along entirely different lines, he proved himself capable of managing and directing a farm, and during his occupancy numerous improvements were installed which enhanced its value, while at the same time he produced good crops and made his land pay commensurately for the labor he expended upon it. In March, 1916, Mr. Croal retired from active labor and came to Reedsburg, where he now resides at the corner of Dewey and East Main streets. He is a democrat in Politics. With his family he belongs to the Catholic Church. Mr. and Mrs. Croal are parents of the following children: John, who was educated in the public schools and is not engaged in operating the homestead farm in Winfield Township; Jane, who was educated in the schools of Winfield Township and Reedsburg, and is now in charge of a school at Lime Ridge; Agnes, a graduate of the Reedsburg High School and now a teacher at Lavalle, Wisconsin; Mary, educated at the Reedsburg High School, and teaching at Lime Ridge; Rose, a junior at the Reedsburg High School; and Rita, a sophomore in the same school.8

At Wisconsin He fought in the Civil War as a private in Company K,18th Regiment of the Wisconsin infantry, serving from early 1864 to the end of the war. Several stories that I have heard said that the war took its toll on him mentally and he came back a very disturbed man. He died in Feburary 1874, he was 44 years old. In Civil War pension records and letters that were written by relatives and neighbors verify that his wife had been Katherine Croal. She filed for the pension in 1890, 16 years after his death. All of the letters were signed and notorized except one, which was very interesting. Along the margin of the letter was a note asking that the letter be kept in confidence.The letter stated that this person knew that Katherine had been the wife of John and the mother of his children and had done a good job raising them without support from her husband. The letter ends: "In regards of her husband, John Croal, he was a ugly natured man, he was sent to jail and finally got out, he then made an assault on a young man, striking him with an axe. In resisting arrest was shot by officers." She had 12 with 7 living in 1900 children. She had 12 with 7 living in 1910 children.

On 17 February 1874 at Wisconsin Article: John Croal rampage and attempted killing of James Kaney.
Janesville Gazette February 17, 1874 - John Croal rampage and attempted killing of James Kaney
Indianapolis Journal February 9, 1874 - John Croal (Crowell) declared murderous brute after killing rampage
At Wisconsin He fought in the Civil War as a private in Company K,18th Regiment of the Wisconsin infantry, serving from early 1864 to the end of the war. Several stories that I have heard said that the war took its toll on him mentally and he came back a very disturbed man. He died in Feburary 1874, he was 44 years old. In Civil War pension records and letters that were written by relatives and neighbors verify that his wife had been Katherine Croal. She filed for the pension in 1890, 16 years after his death. All of the letters were signed and notorized except one, which was very interesting. Along the margin of the letter was a note asking that the letter be kept in confidence.The letter stated that this person knew that Katherine had been the wife of John and the mother of his children and had done a good job raising them without support from her husband. The letter ends: "In regards of her husband, John Croal, he was a ugly natured man, he was sent to jail and finally got out, he then made an assault on a young man, striking him with an axe. In resisting arrest was shot by officers."
