    Biography

    • Biography: Abraham Schroyer was a skilled artisan, and established one of the first piano factories in America at Milton, Pennsylvania. Most of the product of this establishment was shipped by water to Philadelphia, where the instruments were placed on exhibition and sold. His granddaughter, now Mrs. George Evans, who was an accomplished musician, often accompanied the shipment of goods to that city, where her skill was employed in exhibiting the pianos to best advantage.
