The Histories of Saginaw and Bay Counties, Michigan - 1892.


Chris H. Ueberroth is the senior member of the firm of Ueberroth & Co., of Bay City, prominent dealers in crockery, glass-ware, china, wall-paper and art goods. The business is carried on in the Ueberroth & Co. block at 816 North Washington Avenue. This fine brick structure, a view of which appears on another page, consists of three stories and a basement and is 25x100 feet in dimensions, having a glass front and stone trimming. It is one of the finest stores in the city and is adjacent to two other splendid structures. The firm occupies the whole of the building and their goods are so arranged as to attract the eye of every visitor. They keep in their employ eight clerks and conduct a lucrative and increasing trade.

The subject of this sketch was born in Bay City, December 15, 1856, and is a son of Leonard and Mary (Reinhart) Ueberroth. The father, one of the early settlers of the city, came here direct from Germany in 1853. Our subject received his early school education in Bay City and in his youth began clerking with Frank Crandall, dealer in toys and fancy goods. Later he was with White & Davenport in the crockery business and remained with their successor, A. B. Griswold, until he entered the employ of G. R. Fox. He was engaged with the last-named gentleman until August, 1884, when he formed a partnership with Frank King under the firm name of King & Ueberroth, their first location on Center Street.

The firm opened up a good sized store but continued in partnership only six months when our subject took with him W. E. See. That connection continued until 1889, when Mr. See went out and H. C. Moulthrop took a partnership which continues until the present time. By his industrious and persistent habits Mr. Ueberroth has attained his prominent position as one of the leading men in the business circles of the city and now devotes his whole attention to his line of business, enjoying a large trade throughout the State.
