  • Notes 
    • Among the first Catholic settlers, early in the thirties, were Blasius Beysang and his brother William, a little west of Heidelberg. In the house of the former Mass was celebrated for some time. Adolph Schickler is deemed the first-comer in St. Clement's Village. Mr. Anselle one of the first in Heidelberg. He was a Frenchman and kept a tavern. John Stroh from Baden opened the first tavern in the Village of St. Clement's and kept it almost to his death a few years ago. He was also the first postmaster and justice of the peace. In this latter capacity, he always tried to reconcile litigants and mostly succeeded. He was always a friend and support to the priests. Bishop and priests wrote to him on matters concerning the affairs of the church until the Mission obtained a resident priest.
