Michael Neu and his wife, Christine Krieger Neu died in the early 1870's in Dane County, Wisconsin. Their five sons were farmed out to various relatives. Some were sent to Milwaukee. William went to live with his aunt and uncle, John Dohm and Mary Krieger Dohm until he was 12, when he moved from Lodi to Madison. I believe at that time he ended up living with his older brother, Christian, who would have been 18 by then. Joseph for sure and I suspect John also lived in the Milwaukee area for a period of time. I have not been able to figure out where Michael went. Does anyone know the connection between the Dane County and Milwaukee County relatives and with whom John, Michael, and Joseph lived for approximately 10-15 years? Joseph may have lived with the Daniel Neu family, but this is strictly a guess.
