    Biography
    • From Bell's History of Northumberland County 1891: WILLIAM A. SCHREYER, merchant, was born June 9, 1833, in Milton, Northumberland county, Pennsylvania, son of Jesse and Maria (Heinen) Schreyer. He received his education in the common schools and at an academy at Lewisburg. In 1848 he was employed as a clerk in the mercantile establishment of William Heinen at Milton, where he remained until 1852, when he was transferred to his father's general store at Lewisburg. Upon reaching his majority he was taken into partnership by his father and continued to do a mercantile business in Lewisburg until 1861, at which time he became the company part of the general mercantile establishment of Heinen, Etzler, Roush & Company, located at Milton, and has ever since been connected with this house. He and W. C. Lawson laid out what is known as Lawson and Schreyer's addition to Milton. He is a director in the First National Bank of Milton, and is president of the Milton Iron Company. He was first married in 1861 to Mary E. Young, and has four living children: Maria, who married W. R. Kremer; Rebecca Y.; John Y., and Henry H. Mrs. Schreyer died in 1876 and he was subsequently married to Octavia L. Kelchner, and to this union two children have been born: Kate W. and Sarah L. Mr. Schreyer is a Republican and one of the best known and most highly respected citizens of the community in which he resides. He and family are adherents of the Presbyterian church of Milton.
