     FRED SCHOEPHORTER. In every community there is apt to be found a body of retired farmers, and very often they represent the most solid and substantial citizenship of the section in which they live. Many of those who live in Sauk County belong to old pioneer families and some of them, like Fred Schoephorter, a highly respected resident of Troy Township, may be classed as pioneers themselves. Having come here early, they have witnessed and helped to bring about the wonderful development this section of Wisconsin has enjoyed and their reminiscences covering the period are both interesting and instructive. In Mr. Schoephorter's case recollection goes back even to another land, for his birth took place in Germany, March 25, 1845, and he was 'eight years old when the long ocean voyage was taken and the further overland trip to the new home in the Wisconsin wilds. The parents of Mr. Schoephorter were Carl and Maria (Millman) Schoephorter, natives of Germany who came to the United States in 1853 and made their way to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where they hired a conveyance that brought them to Sauk City. There were no railroads at that time in this part of the state and the traveling that people did was with oxen or horses as their preference might be. The weary travelers settled as soon as they could on the 120 acres which the father had secured from the Government, and never left it, both dying on the farm now owned by their son some twenty years ago. They came at a time when many hardships had to be endured because of unsettled conditions, but they were brave and industrious and had not been expecting a life of ease, hence they went to work with a will and the time came, which their son is glad to remember, when they were able to take their ease at will. The 120 acres had to be cleared before it could be cultivated and the father made use of oxen to break up the land. Fred Schoephorter grew up on this pioneer farm and in boyhood attended the district schools. He has always followed farm pursuits and has always lived on the old homestead, having purchased the interests of his three sisters, he being the only son and the third in order of birth in his parents' family, the others being: Louise, who was the wife of Peter Engel and lived at Prairie du Sac; Mary, who married and lived at Cottage Grove in Dane County; and Caroline, who is the wife of Fred Hansmyer and lives at Cottage Grove. When Mr. Schoephorter was twenty-five years old he married Miss Caroline Mittie, and four children were born to them, as follows: Mary, who lives at home; Charles, who is a merchant in Prairie du Sac; Eli, who lives on a farm in Sumpter Township, is married, as is also his older brother; and Lizzie, who is Mrs. Henry Carmacker and lives in Cottage Grove. The mother of the above children died and subsequently Mr. Schoephorter married her sister, Augusta Mittie, and to this marriage there were also born four children, namely: Willie, who is a farmer and has a family and lives at Baraboo; Lidie, the wife of Simon Stibur, lives in Honey Creek Township; Julia, the wife of Henry Gasser, lives in Troy Township; and Henry, who resides on and operates his father's farm. For many years Fred Schoephorter was one of the most successful farmers of Troy Township and kept active until 1906, when he retired, being fully justified when he could turn his affairs over to so capable a farmer as his youngest son. In political matters he has always been a republican but has never accepted any political office unless membership on the school board might be deemed such, for he has served six years in all as a school director. With the members of his family he belongs to the Evangelical Church, which is a strong organization in Troy Township. Mr. Schoephorter has seen many changes in agricultural methods, in manner of living and in a general progress along all lines, and he has accepted those of which he has been able to approve, but he has not altogether forgotten some of the old familiar customs which prevailed in earlier days. He is one of the best known residents of Troy Township. Fred W. Schoephorster immigrated with Carl Schoephorster and Maria L. Millman in 1853.
