he year 1848 saw revolutions in Europe, including in Germany, as people sought political and religious freedoms.   Also in that year, Wisconsin gained statehood.  And to the forests between Lake Michigan and Lake Winnebago in Wisconsin came German settlers from Schleswig-Holstein to found the Town of  New Holstein in Calumet County.

Among those who arrived in the town's first decade were Ferdinand Hermann Hachez, his wife Louise and their six-year-old son Ferdinand Hachez. They sailed from Bremen, Germany, and arrived in New York City on August 4, 1854. They came to New Holstein and engaged first in farming. Over the decades, Hachez family members played an active role in the business and civic life of New Holstein.

Family Coming to America & Wisconsin   [ Top ]

The Hachez family is in the Immigration database for passengers on the ship Robert from Bremen to New York, arriving August 4, 1854. Ferdinand was 35,  Louise, 30, and young Ferdinand was 6 years old. Due to transcription errors, the elder Ferdinand's name is given as Ferdinand Herman Hasher, his wife appears as Louise Harriet and their son's name is transcribed as Ferdinand Hackert. With them was Margaretha Wulff, recorded as a servant. She worked for them in New Holstein.

(Ethnic Series)

An Ancestry subscription is required to see the scan of the original ship's log document for the Robert, found via the above search. The names are correct in Germans to America, Volume 8, Page 2.

Hermann Ferdinand Hachez, born 20 September 1818 in Hannover, Germany, is the Ferdinand Hermann Hachez who came with his wife Louise and son Ferdinand to New Holstein in 1854. He was part of the large Hachez family [in German] of Bremen, a member of whom  started the famous Hachez Chocolate company  of Bremen in 1890. See also the Hachez family [in English].

Hachez chocolate firm in Bremen and more on Hachez [in German] and about  Hachez translated from the German, with photos of the firm.

Hachez entries in historic address books for Bremen include:
-- Joseph Jean Hachez, 1796 address book, owner, Erttel & Hachez, import firm operated with his father in law. He came  from Belgium to Bremen, founding the Hachez family there. He was grandfather to Ferdinand Hermann Hachez who came to Wisconsin in 1854.
-- Emil Hermann Hachez, 1860 address book, buyer and associate with Hachez & Müller, a cigar manufacturer. He was a grandson of the above Joseph Jean Hachez. His own son Joseph Emil Hachez in 1890 founded famous Hachez Chocolate Factory, still going today.

Hachez home and business was on Neustadtdeich -- the New Town dyke along the Weser River on its southwest bank, across from the old city of Bremen. 1773 painting by Wolfgang Christoph Myer. Source.   Location of Neustadt seen on map of Bremen.

Rudolph Puchner's History:  review of his Memories of the First Years of the Settlement of New Holstein, with a list of early residents who arrived in New Holstein by 1854 and are mentioned. Look-up offered The Hachez who is named is Ferdinand Hachez Sr. whose son Ferdinand Hachez married Eliese Boie. Surnames include:
de Roi
Hachez Hansen
Volquarts Witt.

Cecilia Tonner Boie with her father Claus Tonner, her mother Katherine Margaretha Suhr and siblings. Note that the Tonner family was not from Kiel but rather from Wewelsfleth, Holstein, Germany on the Stör River, a tributary of the Elbe River, downstream from Hamburg.

Boie and Hachez Families in 1855:  the 1855 Wisconsin State Census for New Holstein lists F. Hackeze, very likely Ferdinand Hachez, and N. Boge, likely Nicholas Boie or Boje. Each came from Germany in 1854 with a wife and an oldest child. Those two children -- son Ferdinand Hachez and daughter Eliese Boie -- later married.

Lühr Family Arrived in 1858: transcribed immigration records for the ship Main that arrived May 26, 1858, at Castle Garden, New York, with four Lühr individuals: J. N.   [mistranscribed as S. N.], Marg., John, and Peter. The Lühr surname with the umlaut was later spelled Luehr.

Family in New Holstein   [ Top ]

Boie & Hachez & Luehr Families in 1860: the 1860 Census for New Holstein, Calumet County, includes listings for Nicholas Boie, Ferdinand Hachez and John, Margaretha and Peter Luhr. The elder Ferdinand was 41 and a farmer; wife Louisa was 35, and the younger Ferdinand was 12. All were recorded born or from in Holstein.

The 1870 Census found the Hachez family including elder Ferdinand Hachez, 50, farming, with son Ferdinand, 22, working at home, with the latter's wife Elise, 19, keeping house and tending baby Louise, four months old. Margretha Wulff was still with them as a domestic servant.

In that 1870 Census, the elder Ferdinand reported that he was born in Bremen, while the younger Ferdinand and Elise were born in Holstein, Prussia, and Margaretha in Lubeck, a city in Holstein.

About the year the railroad came to New Holstein -- 1872 -- the younger Ferdinand Hachez left farming as his main occupation. He built the Farmers' and Mechanics Saloon at the east end of town. For economic development, New Holstein invested $30,000 in the railroad, also on the east end.

After wife Louise died, Ferdinand Herman Hachez, immigrant father, moved New Ulm, Minnesota as seen in the Andreas Historical Atlas for that German community. He died there, and his obituary notes he worked as a farm manager in Germany before coming to America.

In 1873, Herman C. Timm, an 1848 German immigrant to New Holstein and later a grain dealer, built a Greek revival house at the east end of town, not far from the Hachez business. The house went on the National Register of Historic Places in 1996. The Timm House was restored, rededicated and reopened in 2007. Enjoy a Timm House photogallery.

Town profiles published in 1876 included one about the beautiful village of New Holstein, its stores, houses, public halls, the agricultural warehouses, tradespeople, and its Masonic, Odd Fellow and Turner societies. There were about 500 citizens, all of German ancestry.

On June 7, 1899, Minnie Boie, Eliese's youngest sister, married Albert Arps in New Holstein. They lived in Ouray and Denver, Colorado. Albert Arp's biography is in a 1919 History of Colorado.

On August 24, 1899, Robert William Luehr, grandson of Ferdinand and Eliese Boie Hachez and son of William H. and Clara Hachez Luehr, was born  in Manitowoc.

Ferdinand Hachez and the Turnverein   [ Top ]

Ferdinand Hachez was an early member of the New Holstein Turner Society or Turnverein, according to his obituary. Turner societies were well known for gymnastics but also such cultural events as music and drama. Ferd. continued exercise regimes for all his life.

The Turnverein or Turner Society idea was brought to America from Germany  where it had been founded about 1809. It was the '48ers fleeing to America that brought it.

Clara Hachez, daughter of Ferdinand and Eliese, in 1883 was in a turning class of 17 girls taught by Anton Weisenbach, photographed. Turn master Weisenbach also taught Edward Funke [see below].

Turner Society Saved Early New Holstein: 1926 article recalls role of the Turnverein in the early town settled by a university professor, several lawyers, several actors as well as farmers. Early settler J. C. M. Pfeiffer was a gymnast and first turning instructor. Edward Funke filled that latter role for 37 years, making the society among the state's best.

Turnverein Helped with 75th: New Holstein's Turner Society in 1923 hosted the state competition  as part of the town's celebration of the "sturdy band of 70 persons who set sail from the City of Hamburg" for Wisconsin, then settled the town of New Holstein.

New Holstein's Turners in 1937 celebrated the 70th anniversary of its 1867 founding and honored Edward Funke for 50 years as instructor. In 1941, Wisconsin Turners met in New Holstein, Funke the host.

New Holstein's Turner Society in 1946 celebrated both its 79th annual demonstrations and the 59th anniversary for instructor Edward Funke who in 1974 was inducted into the Turner Hall of Fame. Funke became a turning instructor for New Holstein in 1887 at age 16.
