The following is an excerpt from "John Amann," Portrait and Biographical Record of Sheboygan County Wisconsin (Excelsior Pub. Co., Chicago, 1894), pp. 631-632. John Amann, deceased, was a worthy early settler of Sheboygan County. He was born in Bavaria, Germany, in 1813, learned the mason's trade in the Old Country, and was there married to Antonia Schmidtbauer. In 1853, they emigrated to America and settled in Sheboygan County, Wis., their home being a log house, which he erected in the woods in the town of Sheboygan the first year or two, where they found it hard work to secure a living. ...Later he moved to the school section where he made his home until 1857, when he removed to Sheboygan. There he worked at mason work, and anything he could turn his hand support his family... He was also a musician, playing the clarionet, and being one of the early musicians of the Chair City. There were eight children in Mr. and Mrs. Amann's family [sic, there are only 7 children listed], all natives of the United States. Margaret, the eldest, died at the age of three years; John W. married Mary Beisang, and is a carpenter contractor of Sheboygan, of whom find sketch elsewhere in this record; Annie died aged eight years; a pair of twins died in infancy; Elizabeth became the wife of George R. Jones, of Milwaukee; and Katherine died when thirteen years old. Mr. and Mrs. Amann were members of the Catholic Church... His death occurred in January, 1864, at the age of fifty-one years. His widow became the wife of Nicholas Kaufmann, and died in the fall of 1884.
