This Web Site is dedicated to Anton Forster and his descendants. Anton was born December 26, 1818 in Litschau, Austria and died January 16, 1889 in Durand, Wisconsin. Anton and his family arrived in New York aboard the Bark Johanna on September 30, 1856. They first settled in Black Earth, Dane County, Wisconsin and in 1868 moved to Lima, Pepin County, Wisconsin where they farmed for many years. Anton was married three times, but details remain obscure. We believe his first wife was Johanna and from this union were born Daniel, Joseph, John, Lawrence, Johanna and Elizabeth.  We remain uncertain of Johanna’s maiden name, and the full identities of his other wives.  We have not yet located photographs.

 

 

In addition to the Home Page, this Web Site will initially have four major sections:

 

 

History:  Intended to host family documents, obituaries, stories and testimonials for the extended Anton Forster family.

 

Photo Albums:  This section has been divided into discreet areas for each of Anton’s six children and “Other” so family members may upload photos of their families and major events.

 

Family Tree:  We intend to use genealogy software to be able to display Anton Forster’s many descendants.  This effort will no doubt be complicated, require much discussion, and be an unending effort of refinement.
