Ludwig Schaufel was born in the summer of 1849, on the 25th of August, in Vienna, Austria. Little is known of his birth parents at this time, but it is believed his father's occupation was a glass maker by trade.
Ludwig had also learned the art of "Glaser" making, while a young man. He met his future wife, Anna Jauch, also a native of Austria, and they were married about 1875. They became parents of three children: Charles (aka Carl), Laura and Anna (aka Mary), while residing in Austria.
By 1888, Ludwig and Anna had begun making preparations to immigrate to America. Their dream became a reality, when they boarded the ship Moravia, on June 24, 1888. According to the ship's manifest list, Ludwig was 39 years old, a "Glaser" by occupation, whose residence was in Wien, Osterreich (Vienna, Austria). He was accompanied by his wife Anna, and their three children, Charles, 9; Laura, 7; and baby "Anna", 11 months old.
The ship Moravia, sailed from the Ports of Hamburg, Germany and Le Havre, France, its final destination New York, New York, USA. Ludwig and his family arrived in New York, on July 9, 1888.
From New York, the family made their way West, establishing their final residence on Bronte Street, San Francisco, California. It was here that three more children were born to Ludwig and Anna. Their son Henry was born in December of 1889; followed by the birth of daughter, Ella, in April of 1892, and daughter Freda, in October of 1893.
The 1900 United States Federal Census, enumerated in San Francisco, in June of that year, revealed that Ludwig was employed at John Wieland Brewery, located in the City of San Francisco. He held several different positions, one as a "brewer", and the other as a "Cooper", while at Wieland. His eldest son Charles also worked at Wieland.
This census also revealed that Anna had given birth to 9 children, however, only six would live to adulthood. Their son Charles, who would turn 23, in September 1900, worked at Wieland's Brewery. Daughter Laura, who would turn 20, in December 1900, was not employed outside their home, but assisted her mother with household chores and looking after the younger children. The younger children included: Mary, who would turn 14, in August; Henry, who would turn 11, in December; Ella, who turned 8 in April; and Freda, who would turn 6, in October, were all attending school.
Sadly, these happy days would be short lived. On June 26, 1903, Ludwig Schaufel died, in his adopted City of San Francisco. He was laid to rest at Holy Cross Cemetery, in Colma, County of San Mateo. He was survived by his wife Anna, and their six children. A beloved husband and loving father, and a lasting legacy ...
