Excerpt from History of Brown County, Wisconsin, Past and Present, Vol. 2: Illustrated
Mr. Wigman continued in the occupation of farming and other manual labor until the year, 1854, when he entered a dry-goods and general store as clerk, which position he occupied for a little over two years, when he was induced to teach the public school in the town of Green Bay (now town of Scott). The town of Green Bay was then composed of the now towns of Scott, 'preble, Humboldt and Green Bay. While teaching school he entered upon the study of law under the direction of the late Judge Cotton and Hon. Timothy O. Howe. He also filled the offices of justice of the peace, town clerk, treasurer and assessor. Meanwhile he continued the study of law borrowing books for that purpose from the lawyers of Green Bay and practicing whenever opportunity offered itself before justice courts. His father having died in I862 the following spring he made a visit to Holland to settle up his father's large estate. Many of his relations were living at that time.
His father had, at first, intended to follow Mr. Wigman to the new world but later on reversed his plans and wanted his sons to return to him. Our subject, however, could not comply with this wish and so it happened that father and son never met again.
