      Mr. Schreyer was born in Berks County and when seven years ago moved to Milton and for 84 years was intimately connected with the business and social interest of that town. From 1850 to 1871 he resided in Lock Haven and from the latter date to the time of his decease lived here. Few men were more respected. He was twice married, five children - Mrs. Henry Hoffman, Mrs. Daniel Garman and Mrs. Johnathan Harper of Bellefonte and Mrs. Ivens of Milton, are still living - were the result of the first marriage. Four sons, Messrs. Charles, Benjamin, Hayes and Harry, all of whom survive him and Harry, all of whom survive him and are doing weel, were given him after his marriage the second time. For some time prior to his death he had been subject to “weak spells,” we believe by his physican termed heart disease and at times was very low, yet generally enjoyed rather good health.
