Saunders County, NE Biographies





FRANK W. VIRGL.
Among those who have found farming a profitable and congenial occupation is Frank W. Virgi, of Center township. He was born in that township on the 23d of December, 1884, of the marriage of Vaclav and Josephine (Koutny) Virgi, both of whom were born in Moravia, Bohemia, and were there married. They resided in that country until 1877, when they decided to try their fortunes in the United States and emigrated to this country, making their way westward to Saunders county, Nebraska. The father purchased land in Center township, which he cultivated for some time, but later removed to a farm in that township now operated by our subject. He was a heavy landowner, holding title at the time of his death, in 1906, to eight hundred and forty acres of land, although when he arrived in the United States he had but very little money. He is buried at Wahoo and is survived by his wife, who makes her home in Cedar precinct, northwest of Colon. She is a communicant of the Catholic church, as was her husband. They became the parents of the following children: Antonie, the wife of Frank Razec, residing near Wahoo; John, who lives in Cedar township; Anton of Center township; Frank W.; and Henry, who makes his home in Cedar township.

Frank W. Virgl attended the public schools during his boyhood and youth and also gave considerable time to assisting his father with the work of the farm. Following his father's demise he became the owner of his present farm, comprising one hundred and sixty acres on section 14, Center township, and since 1907 he has devoted his time to the operation of that place. He carries on general farming, including the raising of high grade stock. He has made all of the improvements upon the place and in 1908 erected a residence, barn and crib. He is at once practical and progressive and derives a good annual income from his land.

On February 6, 1912, occurred the marriage of Mr. Virgi and Miss Frances Kralik, who was born in this county, of Bohemian parentage. Since age conferred upon him the right of franchise Mr. irgl has supported the democratic party but he has never sought office. He and his wife belong to the Catholic church and their influence is on the side of right and justice. He is one of the most successful young farmers of the county, and his personality is such that he has gained the friendship as well as the respect of those with whom he has come in contact.
