John D. Kregel
Garnavillo Twp.

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.
