Biography of George T. Schaefer
Richmond County, NY Biographies





GEORGE T. SCHAEFER, the eldest of fourteen children of Carl F. Schaefer, was born in New York city in 1853. He came to Staten Island with his father's family in 1859, and was educated in the public schools, with a year's course in the German school.

When thirteen years of age, he entered his father's shop to learn the trade of carpenter, cabinet-maker and upholsterer. Having thoroughly learned all branches of the trade, he started in business for himself at the age of twenty-two years, establishing the business of undertaker and embalmer, which he still conducts at 174 Bay st., Stapleton. In 1889, Mr. Schaefer was elected coroner for Richmond county, an office which he still holds, having been re-elected in 1892. During his term, he has conducted many important inquests and has made for himself an excellent record as a thorough and careful official.
