Frederick Hoelzle




Frederick Hoelzle





FREDERICK HOELZLE, wholesale and retail dealer in meats, was born in Baden, Germany, November 8, 1836, and is a son of Stephen and Fredericka (Scheible) Hoelzle, who lived and died in their native land. Frederick served an apprenticeship at the butcher trade in Germany, and in April, 1854, immigrated to the United States, and spent two years at his trade in Philadelphia. In April, 1856, he came to Sharon, and the following spring opened a butcher-shop on State Street. He has since been successfully engaged in that business, being to-day one of the wealthiest citizens of the town. Mr. Hoelzle was married in March, 1857, to Miss Sophia Doerr, of Sharon, but a native of Germany. Of this union ten children were born, five of whom are living: Charles, Frederick, Henry, Nora and Eva, while Elizabeth died at the age of fourteen and the remaining four in infancy. Both he and wife belong to the Reformed Church. He is a Republican, and has filled the office of councilman two terms, and is a member of the Masonic and I. O. O. F. fraternities.
