FREDERICK SCHRAMM, deceased, a pioneer of Sheboygan County, who came in 1856, was born in Schwerin, Province of Mecklenburg, Germany, November 3, 1825, and was a son of H. Heiden and Elizabeth Schramm.
The gentleman whose name heads this article was reared and educated in his native land, where he also learned the blacksmith's trade. In 1852, he emigrated to the United States, locating in Milwaukee, where he worked at his trade. During his sojourn in that city he wedded Adelaide Moeller, who was born in Sitzendorf, Germany, October 21, 1825, and came to the United States in 1851. Five sons and a daughter were born to Mr. and Mrs. Schramm. Albert H. married Emma Bade and is the leading furniture dealer in Plymouth; Adolph W. married Sophia Thieman, and is a chair manufacturer of Plymouth; Henry W. wedded Mary Langner and resides in Baraboo, Wis., Augusta G., the only daughter, became the wife of Gustav Greisbach, a farmer of the town of Greenbush, Sheboygan County; Edward married Ida Kirst, and resides in Milwaukee; and Louis wedded Lena Heronymus, and is a resident of Plymouth.
In 1856, Mr. Schramm came to Sheboygan County and located on a farm about two miles distant from the village of Sheboygan Falls. There he also resumed work at his trade, opening a blacksmith shop, which he carried on in connection with farming until 1877, when he retired from active work and removed to Plymouth. In the latter place his death occurred, July 4, 1879. The wife and mother survives and resides in Plymouth.
In politics, Mr. Schramm was a Democrat, and in his religious faith was a Lutheran, as are his wife and their children. He was a man of industrious habits and led an active and useful life. Upright and honorable in all his dealings, he commanded the respect and esteem of all who knew him.
