Here is a re-election poster of my Grandfather Joseph Foral.  He was elected sheriff of Oconto County both as a Republican and Democratic Candidate.  He was born in Town of Spruce and was a cheesemaker in Breed and Mountain.  He also owned a hotel and meat market in Mountain.  After he retired he and his wife Bertha Louise Sasman Foral lived in Mountain.  He was active in politics all his life.  He also loved to fish.

Generation No. 4

WI, and died August 1964 in Town of Armstrong, Mountain, WI.

Notes for Joseph Foral:
Joseph was a man of many occupations.  He was a cheesemaker, a politician and a lawman.  He served as a federal marshall on the Menomonee Indian Reservation and Oconto County Sheriff both as a Democrate and a Republican candidate.  He grew up in the Town of Spruce.  He lived in the Breed Cheese Factory and after retiring from the Sheriffs Department lived in Mountain, Town of Armstrong.

He loved to fish.  Especially trout fishing in the smaller streams around Mountain.  He also loved to ice fish in the winter time.  He loved the outdoors.  He picked berries for his wifes pies.  He hunted.

According to the 1920 census, the family lived in the Township of Little River, Oconto County, WI
 

Notes for Bertha Louise Sassman:
"Bert" was a fine woman and great cook.  She had to be to put up with Joe.  You could find her in the kitchen always cooking up some delicious treats; pies, cakes, kolatchies, roleekies.

She had been in a terrible auto accident in Suring.  Her leg had been crushed and she had to walk with a brace on her leg and a cane.  But it didn't slow her down.

She was one of the biggest Green Bay Packer fans.  On Sunday she was always in front of the TV rooting for her team.  And if things weren't going well, that cane got a good workout on her hassock.

Here is a picture of the old jail in Oconto.  My grandfather Joe Foral was sheriff for a number of years.  When we were kids we would visit and
play in the basement of the residence and sometimes go next door to the hospital and play with the frogs on the grounds that they used for tests in the old days.  My grandmother Bertha Sasman Foral had a bad accident near Suring and had to remain bedridden until she healed.  My mother stayed with them until she was better.  Since we lived in the country, it was a treat to go to the "city" where we would visit the "5 & Dime store" and go to the local corner
grocery store for an ice cream.  The Oconto jail is no longer standing.
