  • Notes 
    • At St. Agatha Father Schneider apparently found a log church, that was also used as a school by Catholics and Protestants. Mrs. Ferdinand Walter, nee Dietrich, is said to have been the first child baptized in this school-church by Father Schneider.

      _______________________


      The building was begun soon after if not before. Mrs. Ferdinand Walter told the writer that she was present at the laying of the corner stone by Bishop De Charbonnel, as a member of the St. Agatha church choir, under the leadership of Mr. Wirtz, then teacher at St. Agatha. She received an image from the Bishop on the occasion which she treasured religiously. Unfortunately she could not give the date of the ceremony.
