  VILLAGE OffICIALS 
                    By: Lorraine Schodron and Larry Gundrum 
    John Pick, Schleisingerville's first village President, was born in Foerde,
Saverland, Germany, in 1819. 
He was a master carver and made elaborate furniture. He also worked for the
Steinway Piano Co. in Stuttgard, 
Germany. 
    John emigrated to the U.S. in 1848. He married Mary Leins. They lived
in Walker's Point, Milwaukee. 
While there John worked for a company that built railroad locomotives. He
carved, out of wood, the forms 
from which metal castings were made. 
    In September of 1857 John and Mary purchased the large store (now owned
by Richard Bielinski and 
occupied by Gundrum Insurance) built by Julius Schleisinger and his father
B. Schleisinger Weil. The Pick 
family lived in a log cabin across the street before moving to the upper
floor of the store. 
    John Pick died in 1874, leaving a wife, two sons and two daughters. Shortly
after John's death, the family 
moved to West Bend where the Pick family is well known to this day.
