Prominent among the citizens of Clayton County may be
found the name of John D. Kregel, who settled here in
April, 1846. He is a son of G. Kregel whose sketch will
be found elsewhere in this work. Upon coming to Clayton
County Mr. Kregel and his brother Henry purchased
adjoining farms, which they lived upon until 1868 when
Henry removed to Nebraska, where he still resides and is
extensively engaged in farming. The subject of this
memoir married Helen A. Kaiser, whose father was one of
the pioneers of Clayton County. Five children have
blessed this union, four sons and one daughter. Mr.
Kregel owns 285 acres of finely cultivated land.
