BURLINGTON, Wis., April 25

 

Burlington lost another of her pioneer settlers and businessmen in the death early Thursday morning of Frank Schemmer. Mr. Schemmer was around as usual Wednesday and that evening visited with friends as bright as usual. Shortly after 1 o'clock his wife noticed something wrong and in less than half an hour he had passed away from heart trouble. Funeral services will be held from St. Mary's church at 9 o'clock Monday morning. Mr. Schemmer was born in Westphalia Germany, Sept. 14, 1842, and came to America and to Burlington with his parents in 1845 and this has since been his home. As a boy he learned the shoemaker's trade and early established himself in business. Later he branched out and the general store on the corner of Geneva and Jefferson streets is one of the pioneer's institutions of Burlington. Advanced age caused him to dispose his interests to his son several years ago. Mr. Schemmer took an active interest in public affairs and had several terms in the city council and was a member of the school board at the time of his death. He had been a trustee of St. Mary's church for the past twenty-two years, his father being a charter member of the church. In 1857 Mr. Schemmer was united in marriage with Miss Mary Seibreiter, who died in 1885. The same year he was united in marriage with Miss Susan Robers who with the following nine children now survive: Fred, Watsonville, Cal.; Phil, Chicago; Sister Theodorin, Chicago; Mrs. Wm. F. Gill, Mrs. Albert Plate, Mrs. Frank Mueller, Burlington; Sister M. Rainers, Green Bay. Three brother and two sisters also survive.
