Lake Pierron (Lac de Pierront)

Belgium, Ozaukee County, Wisconsin

The Pierron family's sound beliefs, rooted in religion, community spirit, strong work ethic, creative talents, and future thinking have long been, and continue to be, trademarks of this family.
-- 1772, Theodore Pierron emigrated from the Luembourg border town of Audun-Le-Tiche, France to Bettange, Luxembourg.  -- 1850, his grandson Pierre Pierron's family left Salange, Belgium for the United States. (Including his eldest son, Louis) [sic] 
After two generations, five priest ordinations, and the hardship of five children's deaths during two separate smallpox epidemics, Louis's grandson Nic N. Pierron moved from his Belgium County farm to the Town of Belgium, a community he and his ancestors had helped build.
Dedicated to our Pierron heritage, their [sic] ability to overcome hardship and improve the future for all.
