      Letter from Leo Joseph Fries, undated, describes aspects of the life of Francis X. Ulerich.
      "In October, 1844 Francis Ulerich walked out from /Tiffin, Ohio and bought 320 acres in Section 8 and 9, Thorncreek township, along the Big Lake Road (Ind. 109) at Fishers Corner (north of Cresco), [unintelligible) wintered up early that fall and he suffered much from the cold on his return. The Pittsburg and Ohio and Fort Wayne & Ohio railroads were gradually being extended to Fort Wayne. The Ft. Wayne and Chicago line reached Columbia City in 1856. Later all were merged in the P.F.W.& C (Pennsylvania0 Railroad. Whitley County was organized in 1838. There was no more public land."

      "In 1845 the Ulerichs came to Whitley by big wagon. There were few bridges, and teams had to be forded. After heavy rains travel might be held up several days. Charles Ulerich took the east 160 A. Francis and Adam took the other 80 A.s. Francis moved to Columbia City after 1860. Built first brick building in town."

      Leo further states that five of their children died in infancy or early childhood. Some buried in the old Hively Cemetery, Thorncreek Township. The old log schoolhouse later to become the Adams School, stood on the corner of the Francis Ulerich farm.
