History of Michigan, by Charles Moore, 1915

son of Richard Scheurmann.

Frank B. Scheurmann, who succeeded to the business established by his father, was born in Bay City, February 4, 1870. His education was acquired by attendance at the public schools, and he also had private instruction and a course in a business college. Entering his father's store, he was assigned to duties which gave him an intimate knowledge of every detail and he has not only maintained the prestige of his father's mercantile career, but has gone on increasing the reputation of the Schuermann establishment until today it is foremost of its kind in the city. Mr. Schuermann has been actively identified as manager of the enterprise for twenty-seven years. No other store of the kind in Bay City has so large a patronage.

In political affairs, Mr. Scheurmann takes no active part except as a good citizen, and has always steadily declined any offers for political office. He is Independent in his views as to party matters. In Masonry he has taken thirty-two degrees of the Scottish Rite, and also belongs to the Knight Templar Commandry. Fond of outdoor sport, he takes his recreation in that way, and is a member of the Bay City Boat Club. His church is Congregational.

In January, 1892, Mr. Scheurmann married Miss Mary Berkey, a daughter of Frederick N. and Josephine Berkey. To their marriage have been born two children: Miss Cornelia J., born in Bay City in 1895, is a graduate of the high school; and Richard B. Jr., born in November, 1901, and now a student in the high school. Mr. Scheurmann and family reside in a beautiful home, which is a center of the social life of Bay City.
