His father was a nailsmith by trade and later was employed in a nut and bolt establishment, where, in 1869, he was accidentally caught in some shafting and killed, aged thirty-eight. His wife survives him. Mr. Ramsperger attended St. Anne's Parochial School and for three years was a student at Canisius College, and then entered the employ of Haas, Neubert & Kline, printers. From 1877 to 1888 he was a collector for John Schusler, and for one and onehalf years thereafter was engaged in the liquor business for himself. He then returned to Mr. Schusler's brewery in the capacity of cashier and solicitor, and since 1894 has been head bookkeeper there. He is a staunch Democrat, and when twenty. three was nominated and elected alderman of the old Fifth ward. He was re-elected three times, was nominated assessor and ran ahead of his ticket, and for six years was a member of the Democratic General Committee, of which he was elected secretary in 1896. He has frequently been a delegate to city, county and assembly conventions, is a member of the C. B. L., the C. M. B. A., the Uniformed Catholic Knights of St. John, the Red Men, the Foresters, and numerous singing societies, and is a director of the German Roman Catholic Orphan Asylum on Best street. Mr. Ramsperger is one of the most popular and best known young German residents of Buffalo, and socially and politically is widely respected and esteemed. He has been urged to accept the nomination for assemblyman and congressman but declined. In 1889 he married Anna, daughter of Nicholas and Johanna Siebert, of Buffalo.
