CHARLES REISSMANN, dealer in furniture, Coudersport, was born in Sachsen-Altenburg, Germany, in 1824. He came
to America in 1854, and settled in New York City, but removed thence to Stedman, Chautauqua Co., N. Y., and from
there to Coudersport. Being a carpenter and joiner, he worked here for a time at his trade, and then went into
the furniture and undertaking business, whieh he continued until the fire of 1880, in which he met with a very
heavy loss. He rebuilt in 1883, and has since continued business on Second street, in his commodious quarters,
where his enterprise is meeting with the success it merits. Mr. Reissmann married Miss Catharine Schmitt, a lady
of German birth, and they have three children: Julius, Anna (now Mrs. Shellenberger) and Kate (now Mrs Stone).
Mr. Reissmann is a member of the Knights of Honor. In politics he affiliates with the Republican party, and has
been a member of the council. He and his wife are members of the Presbyterian Church.
