REINHOLDT T. SCHOLZ, a merchant of Corning, was born in Breslau, Germany, 1854, and in early youth came to America. After a brief season in the public schools here he began his life as a clerk in Racine, Wisconsin, and the greater proportion of life has been spent behind counters as a salesman, and there are none better. He opened business in Chicago and suffered loss from the great fire of 1871. In 1879 he came to Corning and became a member of the firm of Scholz Bros., which was dissolved in 1883. His present business was established in 1890, and its remarkable growth attests his popularity as a business man, and his untiring industry. In the Methodist Episcopal Church and in society he is a power. Religion, including temperance, or rather total abstinence from intoxicating liquors, enlists his enthusiasm. As president of the Blue
Ribbon League he is recognized as one of the most successful leaders in the State. Under his management the organizations in Adams county have multiplied and grown in strength until the county has become known as a reliable temperance county. He is also a Royal Arch Mason.
He was married in Racine, Wisconsin, to Miss Catherine M. Hogley. They have two children: Clinton R. and Nellie M. Mrs. Scholz died December 9, 1889, after a long and painful illness. She has been a member of the Methodist Church for many years.
