Chased by a Sheriff

My dad, Daniel Reuben Schauerhamer, was a hard worker.  I guess he got it from  his dad, William Louis Schauerhamer, who learned to work when he was just knee high to a grasshopper.  By the time he was twelve years old, William had already "worked in three different factories, making toy horses, wagons and vehicles."  He also told about running from the law;
"I was only seven when a sheriff chased me out of the front door of a factory.  I went home and by the way of the rear of the homes, I went back to the factory.  No one could hold me from working."

  1. Wow! He was such a good worker. That must be where you get it from, too. What a great heritage!
