Conrad Ulrich, farmer and
stock-raiser, was born in Bavaria, Germany, on the 22nd
day of October, 1813. In 1834 he married Maria Kreig, who
was born in the same place on Feb. 16, 1815. Three
children were born there, viz.: John, Jacob and Margaret.
In 1846 he left his native country and came to Ripley
County, Ind., where he remained eight years; then removed
to Allamakee County, Ia., where he purchased land and
made a farm. In 1866 he came to Clayton County, settling
in Monona Township, where he still resides. After coming
to this country two children were born-- George and
James. Though coming to this country in limited
circumstances, by hard work and judicious management Mr.
Ulrich has accumulated a fine property and home, and is
classed among the well-to-do farmers of this township. He
owns 160 acres of beautiful land, under cultivation, and
valued at $50 per acre. They are members of the
Evangelical Association of Giard.
