Obituary: The Baltimore Sun February 24, 1952

Frederick A. Ascherfeld, for many years well known in Baltimore lumber business, died Friday at his home, 18 West Pennsylvania avenue, Towson. He was 87.

Born in Elkton, October 19, 1864, the son of the late Theodore and Elise Hahn Ascherfeld, he lived for awhile in Havre de Grace, and came to Baltimore as a youth.

He was with one firm, the James Lumber Company-for more than 50 years. A ready story teller, business to him was not the prosaic one of stacks of wood, but of living trees, industrial romance of forests and mills, and engaging personalities of office force and customers. He was dean of the Hoo-Hoo Club, a fraternal group of lumbermen, and attended a recent meeting of the Baltimore chapter.

He and Mrs. Ascherfeld, who was Miss Letitia Ross Cousins, celebrated their sixty-fifth wedding anniversay last April 8. Until three years ago, they had made their home at 1710 North Broadway.

Also surviving are two daughters, Miss Daisy E. Ascherfeld, of Towson, and Mrs. J. Lawrence Bevans, of Baltimore; two sons, Karl C., of Jarrettsville, and Theodore H., of Ruxton, a sister Miss Clara Ascherfeld, of Baltimore, a brother, William of Pell City, Ala., four grandchildren, and three great grandchildren.

Services will be held at 1 P.M. tomorrow at William J. Tickner & Sons funeral establishment, Pennsylvania and North avenues. Burial will be in Loudon Park Cemetery.
