More Stratford Folks The Wenzel Family We apologize to the Wenzel Family for not having their history in the Family History Section. Their package of photos was inadvertently placed in the miscellaneous file and not discovered until the Family History Section was at the printers. We include it here, hoping better late than not at all. Franz Wenzel was born in Eisentein, Bohemia and Ther- sia (Kolros) Wenzel was born in Panzer, Austria. They came to America in October of 1889 with a family of seven children. The family settled in the Pittsburg, Pennsylvania area until 1891 when the family moved to the Blenker area. After a train started a grass fire which burned out their farm that same year, they came to Stratford. They settled on a farm on Balsam Road just south of the Village limits. The fourth generation of the Wenzel family is still on the farm. Franz & Thersia Wenzel Anna & Louis Wenzel, 1913 Alfred and Marie Wenzel, 1946 In 1979 Alfred grew a peculiar tomato. After washing it and examining it closer, he saw the form of a human face. Alfred is on the right.
