George E. Schoerger, Jr., is successfully engaged in the saloon business at Sheboygan, where he was born May 12, 1875. He is a son of Mr. and Mrs. George Schoerger, Sr., of whom more extended mention is made on another page of this work. George E. Schoerger, Jr., was reared in his parents' home and received his early education in the public schools in Sheboygan. On starting in life for himself he first took up work at the age of sixteen years in a grocery store and later found employment in one of the factories of Sheboygan, where he continued to be engaged for some time and then became interested with his father in the saloon business, in which he has since continued. In addition to his saloon business he is also engaged in the plumbing business, to which he gives a portion of his time.
Mr. Schoerger was united in marriage to Miss Clara Schlicht. She was born in Sheboygan in 1876 and is a daughter of John and Mollie (Walters) Schlicht, who were among the early settlers of Sheboygan county. The father was first engaged in this country in the harness business at Sheboygan and later was associated in the livery business with F. Telgener for a number of years. He and his partner sold their livery business to the Schmidt Livery Company, since which time Mr. Schlicht has been employed in the shipping department of the Vollrath Manufacturing Company.
To Mr. and Mrs. Schoerger one child has been born, Wallace, who is ten years of age and is now a pupil in the public school. Mr. Schoerger is a member of the Fraternal Order of Eagles of Sheboygan and also a member of the Royal Order of Moose and the United Aid Society. He is one of the well known citizens of Sheboygan and is a man whose business integrity has never been questioned and who enjoys the respect of his friends and associates.
