Joseph J. Schermack, Sr.

My great-great grandfather, Joseph J. Schermack, Sr. working in a tailor shop in Freeport, Illinois, USA, circa 1900. He is second from the right, by the window. He was born on 4 November 1844 in Heimbach, Neuwied, Rheinland, Prussia and arrived in New York City 29 May 1857. He moved to Freeport, Illinois, USA and married Amelia Schauer 20 June 1875. They had 6 children, including my great-grandmother, Laura Schermack Blumenstiel. #schermackgenealogy #schermack #familyhistory #genealogy #familyphoto #freeportillinois #freeport #freeportillinois #freeportil #illinoishistory #falknerjarrell #oldphotos #tailor #tailorshop #oldworkshop #tailorworkshop #1900s #immigrant #immigrants #immigrantstories #greatgreatgrandfather #2xgreatgrandfather
