Charles G. Schellenger was born in Lafayette county, Wis., Dec. 18, 1833; died in Clarksville, Iowa, Feb. 25, 1907.
Since 1868, when Mr. Schellenger came to Clarksville, he was a prominent factor in the town’s welfare. He was frequently called upon to hold positions of trust in these various walks. Wherever called, he proved worthy of the trust imposed upon him, administering the affairs of office in a manner that denoted both interest and sound business judgment.
He was a member of Methodist Episcopal church of this place, of the Blue lodge and Chapter of the Masonic order of this place, and of the Commandery of the same order at Cedar Falls.
Mr. Schellenger was reared on a Wisconsin farm. As soon as he became of age he engaged in the general merchandise business at Wiota, Wis. Two years later he closed out his business and moved to New Oregon, Howard county, Iowa, where he again embarked in business. In 1868 he engaged in hardware business at Clarksville with Geo. Eck. The firm continued for about a year, when Mr. Schellenger became associated in the hardware and farm implement business with Frank Hesse.
Mr. Schellenger was married to Miss Lauraine McColum in 1857. To this union was born three children of whom one son, Charles L., of this place, survives as does also his wife. – Clarksville Star.
