Joseph and Sadie Voiland – Sacred Heart Cemetery, Manawa, Waupaca Co., WI

My great grandparents, Joseph and Sadie (Romond) Voiland arrived in New York City from France on May 27, 1857, only a couple of months after they were married. They traveled to Buffalo, and remained there until passage through the Great Lakes could be obtained.  They finally arrived in Little Wolf Township, Waupaca Co., WI in December of 1857.

An 1889 plat map shows the 80 acre Joseph Voiland farm a mile or two east of Bear Lake in Royalton Township, Waupaca Co.  They sold the farm in 1903 and moved to the village of Royalton.


After Sadie’s death in 1908, Joseph moved to Clintonville, Waupaca Co. and lived with his daughter’s family. Joseph and Sadie are buried in Sacred Heart Cemetery in Manawa, Waupaca Co.

Our family name of “Voiland” was change to “Weller”. More about that can be read here.
