John G. Gredler was born in Bavaria, May 17, 1812, and died Feb. 27, 1898; his wife, Birner, was born April 15, 1815, and died Dec. 14, 1886. They came to America with their family in 1842, and coming overland, reached a place in Brookfield Township, Waukesha County, some fifteen miles west of Milwaukee, then a small hamlet. They started as true pioneers, clearing their land, developing their farm, and often walking to Milwaukee with butter and eggs from their home, and returning with necessary supplies. They, in time, became substantial and representative citizens, and lived their long life secure in the respect and esteem of their fellow men. The family faith was that of the German Lutheran Church.
