This may be way too late as your question was dated in 1998. My grandmother's father was Wenzel Heppler. They came to the US in 1879 when my grandmother was 4 years old. The settled first in Wisconsin for 1 year and in the spring of 1881 they went to the Dakota Territory and homesteaded land 8 miles west of Redfield, SD. They built a sod house which they lived in for 1 year when they built a stone house. In 1885 the stone house was washed away in a flood. Wenzel was a locksmith and carpenter by trade. He worked on the railroad between Huron and Pierre, SD. He and his brother Matt built the Catholic church and convent in Zell, SD (Originally named Maria Zell.) There are also Ecker and Albrecht people who lived in that area as I remember my parents speaking of them but I have no geneology information on them. There is a history of Zell, SD written by my aunt on my father's side which may be available in the library in Redfield, SD which will have more information on the Albrecht and Ecker folks.

I see that you may have some information about Wenzel Heppler. My great-great grandfather was Frank Albrecht who married Mary Josephine Heppler- we have no clue if Mary and Wenzel are related. Any information would be greatly appreciated, especially information regarding the book you referenced.
Thank you,

I searched in the birth records of Parish registers of Roman Catholic Church in Christianberg between June 1849 and December 1857 (Register of Parish distrikt Kristanov 2 and 3 from The State Regional Archives in Třebon).

I am wondering what the name of the book on the history of Zell sd. I didn't find it in the Redfield Library. Is there another place to find? I'm doing geneology for Heppler, Albrecht. Thank you

The name of the booklet is: One Community Under God.
I was told that there may not be anymore copies of it. My grand parent's name was Zens

I did receive a copy of this booklet. I've read many stories and have seen the Zens name in the cemetery and elsewhere. My biggest hurdle is trying to locate the original high alter from St. Mary's Church. Wenzel Heppler carved the alter and in a 1983 newspaper article states that alter moved to someplace in Minn. but Where?? Many thanks
