Peschmann, Charles F. (18?? – 1908)
CHARLES F. PESCHMANN, deceased, for many years was engaged in business at Wausau, as a merchant, and after he became an invalid was succeeded by his wife, who still continues the business, having greatly enlarged its scope and ably managing all its many details. Mr. Peschmann was born in Germany and died at Wausau, Wis., in 1908, having been under medical care at Oshkosh for seven years previously. In 1885 at Wausau Mr. Peschmann was married to Miss Matilda Poch. Their seven children all died in infancy.
Mrs. Peschmann was born in Germany and accompanied her brother Carl Poch, to Wausau, the latter being now in business at San Francisco. Mr. Peschmann, whom she knew well in Germany, had come to Wausau one year before and after their marriage they continued to live in this city until Mr. Peschmann's affliction fell upon him. Mrs. Peschmann and husband started their store on North Sixth Street, in 1893, and it has been mainly through her energy and wise judgment that the business has reached its present large proportions. She developed great business capacity when it became necessary for her to take entire charge and now owns the fine, well stocked store at No. 1910 Sixth Street and five additional properties. She is well known and is held in very high esteem by her business associates and has a wide circle of personal friends. She is very charitable in many directions and liberally contributes to help all worthy public movements.
