Baruch Schleisinger came from France to Washington County in about 1843. Baruch added Weil to his last name when he married into the Celestine and Moses Weil family of West Bend. Over the next 50 years, Baruch was by turns a farmer, a merchant, a real estate agent, a politician, and a brigadier general in the Wisconsin Militia. He is best remembered today as the founder of Schleisingerville, better known as Slinger.  While controversy often followed Baruch in his political career, he was considered “the grand old man of the Assembly” when he retired from elected office in 1881 at the age of 78.
