Conrad Schemmel came from Germany in 1832, and settled in this county. He served as a justice of the peace twenty-one years, and died at the age of seventy-eight years. His son George, who was the only violinist in the county, died at the age of forty-three. Charles and Rudolph J. now occupy the old place.
