Jane (aka Jennie) was born to George and Lucy (Lucie Willems) Berton and was baptized on Dec. 3, 1883 as Joannem Franciscaus in Bay Settlement, northeast of Green Bay, Wi. She married Andrew Konitzer on Nov. 30, 1899 in Oconto Falls, WI. Together they had 16 children.

Children: Martha, Jon, Mary, Albert, Martin, Joseph, Lucy, Eva, Margaret, George, Magdaline, Dorothy, Andrew, Edward, Marcel, and Agnes.

Andrew died in 1934. On July 4, 1940, Jane married second husband, William (Bill) Courchaine, who was the family's long time farm hand. William is buried next to his first wife, Mary Smith in Lena Catholic Cemetery.

As a child Jennie lived at 3082 Bay Settlement Road in Green Bay (Bay Settlement) which still stands. Her father, George then bought a farm near Oconto Falls, WI. George and Jennie would travel by horse and sleigh to get the farm ready to bring the rest of the family. It's here at the same time of death of George's brother, Theophile on March 17, 1899 that Jennie saw a ghost while working at the house. George suddenly decided they'd better go back to Green Bay. When they reached Green Bay a man jumped on the runner of the sleigh and informed them that Theophile had been struck by a train while crossing the tracks with his horses and wagon. It was the same time Jennie had seen the ghost.

Stories provided by Jennie's daughter, Agnes Konitzer Bridger Bast in her book called Original Konitzer Family Tree Book.
